Anda Suta, President of ICF Romania: “Health and economic recovery are strategic priorities in this time of crisis. And we, the coaching specialists, tend to consider and approach the crisis as an opportunity and a good moment of evolution. With three out of ten Romanian companies currently in the risk zone, we are going through a moment of uncertainty and volatility. In the corporate and entrepreneurial environment, financial pressures may be compounded by some infinitely more complicated, strategic, rethinking and reinventing the business in record time. It is useful for managers to increasingly strengthen their critical behavior and management skills. In the health system, we have tens of thousands of front-line medical staff who these days must show balance, clarity, emotional intelligence, in conditions of stress or exhaustion difficult to imagine. For those with managerial positions are tested to the maximum their leadership skills and agility in crisis situations. Now, more than in normal times, it is a time when coaching, a creative process of stimulating thinking and maximizing personal and professional potential, can make a difference. Until May 22, you are welcome to try to find your answers with ICF experts. We believe that community spirit and actions together can make a significant contribution to our balance. We thank all those who donate valuable time and expertise in this project. And we are grateful for some of the industry's leading names in this initiative, such as Alain Cardon, Wendy Palmer, Andrea Cardillo and their prestigious Metasysteme coaching and leadership schools, TPC Leadership and Leadership Embodiment. They are true sources of inspiration and models in managing moments of uncertainty and stress, working with the leaders of the top 50 companies in the world and in Romania.
Mioara Soldan, Vice President of ICF Romania: “Within the WE CARE ABOUT YOU initiative we also have peer to peer modules dedicated to industry colleagues, coaching practitioners who support as well the needs of tens and dozens of clients. We want to support the entire coaching community in Romania with the resources it needs in this tumultuous period: peer coaching and supervision sessions, webinars on adapting to the current context. ICF's mission is to actively contribute to the continuous development of the skills of members of the local community. In the current context, we have chosen to extend this year the International Coaching Week (traditionally held between May 4-10) to one month. Globally, International Coaching Week celebrates our profession and the impact that coaching has on society by offering pro-bono sessions.”
WE CARE ABOUT YOU is an online program. Registrations for the coaching sessions are made on the official ICF Romania website https://coachfederation.ro/icw/. Each participant can benefit from 2 coaching sessions with one of the selected experts and from 15 webinars of a high professional quality.
