    ICF New Jersey Community Groups

    This month I have more news to share about our community groups.

    First, our Executive and Leadership group is moving to the daytime, just like all the other ICF NJ community groups. We initially put this meeting at night because executive coaches told us they are busy traveling to clients during the day. But with zoom, this is not the case right now. And people tend to get ‘zoom fatigue’ by the nighttime. So we decided to give it a new daytime home. It will still be the first Wednesday of every month, with the time now being 12:00-1:00 pm versus 7:30-8:30 pm. And bring your lunch! These should absolutely be thought of as ‘lunch and learns'!

    Second, with Marc Celentana moving to the president-elect position, we will have a new leader of the Princeton group starting in January. Lisa Tyson has graciously volunteered to lead this group. Lisa has been actively involved in the group for two years and will be a great asset. We welcome her and are excited about this new chapter in the Princeton Community Group. Here’s a little about Lisa:

    Lisa Tyson, ACC, is the founder of Select Performance, LLC - providing Executive Coaching and HR Consulting. Lisa resides in Flemington, NJ. Prior to establishing Select Performance, Lisa worked in HR for 25+ years; she has held a variety of HR leadership roles and specialized in all dimensions of Talent Management. Lisa has also helped organizations evolve their coaching culture and systems. Lisa has a certificate in Leadership Coaching for Organizational Performance and is TTI Success Insights® DISC, 12 Driving Forces, and Emotional Quotient-certified. She holds an MS degree in Career and HR Development, and a BS degree in Business Administration.

    Note, we will let you know when any of our meetings return to in-person. For now, we will keep safe and continue to use zoom. The meetings are always free to attend and open to all ICF NJ members and those who are interested in coaching. And you can attend as many as you want/your schedule allows!

    Mark your calendar for the upcoming ICF NJ Community Group meetings you’d like to attend:

    • December 7, Monmouth, 12pm
    • November 4 and December 2, Executive and Leadership, 12pm (NEW time!)
    • November 10 and December 8, Personal, Life, and Career, 11am
    • November 16 and December 21, Somerset/Essex/Morris County, 10am
    • November 24 and December 22, Princeton, 11am

    If you would like to be added to any of the community group lists, please let me know.

    ICF Global - What's New in the Coaching World?

    ICF Credentials and Standards Update

    Last year, ICF released the updated ICF Core Competencies. In order to implement these new changes, ICF Credentials and Standards began a seven-month process of updating the PCC Markers with a diverse team of experienced Assessors and PCC Marker Assessor Trainers.

    The updated PCC Markers are now available to view. PCC Markers are the behaviors that should be exhibited in a coaching conversation at the Professional Certified Coach (PCC) level. The updated Markers have been streamlined to 37 (previously there were 47 Markers). The PCC Markers are available in English, French, German, Portuguese and Spanish.
