Retro/Prospective of the West Coast Roundtables: A Conversation with Host-Committee Alumni

Please join Eileen Coskey Fracchia, IOC: Strategic Advisor, Thought Leader & West Coast Roundtable Host, along with fellow IOC Strategic Advisor and event host David Bishop, for the 20th West Coast Roundtable (RT) on Thursday, December 1, 8:00am – 10:00am PST., via Zoom.

Over the last 5 years, we have co-created a community through our Roundtable events that has allowed for shared learning, teaching, group and individual thinking and networking with colleagues and subject matter experts. The involvement in the community has brought about increased confidence, uncovered and rediscovered positive skills and values, and has and continues to connect us in meaningful ways.

We have had 19 Roundtables, 250+ attendees, with an average of 30 attendees and at least 3 members serving on each of the events host-committee. David and I will facilitate a conversation with 11 of our 50+ host-committee alumni as they reflect on some of their memories and benefits/advantages of having participated both as attendee and host. The host-committee alumni panelists are: Courtney Birch Webster, Eric Kaufmann, Heathere Evans, Joan Freedman, Karen Casanovas, Linda Denton, Pam Marcheski, Robin Stueber, Susan Smalley, Susan Mahoney and Trisha Mason Parsad. We will spend time in small and large group discussions/ activities that are meant to provoke conversation, stimulate ideas, and provide a platform for our topic: Retro/Prospective of the past 5 years, from both individual and community perspectives.

Roundtable meetings promise:

  • A marketing-free, inclusive, and peer-based learning space for coaches to learn about and share new coaching concepts and research.
  • A community of coaching professionals to provide peer coaching and support for developing the “growing edge” of our respective capabilities.
  • Ways to apply the resources available through the IOC to real coaching situations through case consultation and group seminars.

The format is a series of three to four 2-hour events over the course of the year. Each session includes a topic facilitated by an IOC member, discussion of practice and application with that topic, along with case consultation and peer coaching depending on the topic and needs of the group.
