International Coach Federation Switzerland

International Coaching Week with the ICF Chapter Basel 2019

Professional coaching has the power to transform individuals and organizations. The best way to discover this is to experience coaching firsthand.
Since 1999, this belief has fueled International Coaching Week (ICW), a week-long celebration that educates the public about the value of working with a professional coach and acknowledges the results and progress made through the coaching process.

The ICF Chapter Basel will be active this year voluntarily at three different events ranging from coaching for post graduates at FMI (Friedrich Miescher Institute for Biomedical Research) to refugee coaching at DA-SEIN towards a booth on the spring festival of Offene Kirche Elisabethen with 30 minutes laser coaching for the public, if requested.

For these 3 events we are looking for volunteer coaches supporting the activities. These coaches should be credentialed coaches by the ICF or ICF members on the credentialing path.

Opportunity to support refugees at DA-SEIN
Project DA-SEIN is  a project by The Open Church of Elisabethen (OKE). The main aim of the project is to increase its social commitment and to help asylum seekers, refugees, sans-papers and rejected asylum seekers living in Basel live, settle in, integrate and get meaningful employment.

Pro bono one on one coaching to the refugees and asylum seekers. The coaching session will be 1 hour long and will be conducted in German. Some of the coachees may have limited command of the language. There are no specific coaching topics suggested. However, our coaching should always be guided by the coachee’s agenda and  by ICF Core Competencies and Ehtics. We will meet as a plenary at 17.00 first to discuss the benefits of coaching, then continue with one-on-one coaching sessions. After the coaching, all coaches are invited to join the dinner service from 630pm to 9pm and continue to connection and fellowship with all.

Public laser coaching at the ICF booth on the Project DA-SEIN Spring Festival
ICF Basel will set up a booth to promote coaching and signing up of interested parties for a 30 minute laser coaching experience. Laser coaching sessions “laser” in on the core dynamic of a situation. They are usually intense, as you aren’t going into a lot of the “story” or “background” of a situation. Its simply here is where you are; now where do you want to go?
German speaking coaches are preferred. All volunteer coaches are welcome to join the festivities including the buffet.

Here are the details:
Public laser coaching
Address: Projekt DA-SEIN, Elisabethenstrasse 10, 4051 Basel
Time : 4pm - 6pm, meeting at 3.30pm at the ICF booth at DA-SEIN
