Founder, Power to the Queen

I am grateful to you and ICF HC for organizing and sponsoring this Mastermind program. As we explore and practice each competency, I can feel myself grow in clarity and confidence as to how to integrate them into our coaching, and also how I might "touch the bases" during client session recordings for my PCC application. I also appreciate the diversity of ideas and welcoming support from our pilot group. Also special thanks to you, Jennifer, for facilitating and putting together tools that make it easier for us to apply what we learn into our practice.

I enjoyed the core competency mastermind series that you put together the high country chapter. It was a simple process and powerful to spend time thinking and collaborating on the meaning behind each ICF competency.
