The Coaches Corner is the place where Conference attendees receive one-on-one “laser coaching” with a professional certified coach from the International Coach Federation (ICF). This is a valuable opportunity to take what you learn at the Conference and translate it into action to take your career to the next level. ICF credentialed coaches will support your goals to advance your career and help you plan your next step by exploring topics relevant to your situation, which may include:

• Clarifying your professional goals
• Prioritizing and balancing your life
• Navigating career transitions
• Negotiating a raise
• Asking for that promotion
• Launching a new career or job search
• Seeking and attaining board positions
• And much more!

It’s helpful to have a topic in mind to discuss with your coach, but if you’re feeling overwhelmed or not sure where to start, your coach can help with clarity.

*Career Coaches will be unavailable during the opening and lunch keynote sessions.

7:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.*

HR and career service experts will be providing free résumé critiques. Don’t miss this opportunity to have a seasoned pro give your résumé a checkup and help you market yourself better in the ever-changing job market.

*Résumé Reviewers will be unavailable during the opening and lunch keynote sessions.
