Special Interest Groups


We are pleased to announce the launching of ICFLA's Special Interest Groups (SIGs) that will be held every-other month starting in February and continuing in April, June, September, and November.

The SIG meetings will be held either in person or virtually, and are intended to offer ICFLA members and non-members more connection points with ICFLA and other coaches around the world.

ICFLA members can register for one or more SIGs for free.

Non ICFLA members registration fee is $10 per session. However, we invite you to become an ICFLA member ($75) and register for these SIGs for free during the term of 1 year from the date you become a member. In addition to register for these SIGs for free, ICFLA members receive great other benefits listed here.

Getting ahead in today’s coaching industry doesn’t necessarily mean adopting the latest, most cutting-edge technology, but it does mean choosing the right technology that will profoundly impact the effectiveness and efficiency of your practice.

There are many options on the market and could be overwhelming to choose what will serve your needs the best.

In this first session we will focus on why is important to “integrate technology into our coaching practice”? What are the benefits?

The form of the session will be open discussion and will help us build the base for our next virtual meetings where I’ll be inviting different speakers to talk about their experience with coaching technology and the potential impact to the industry in general.

About your host:

With an extensive education and background in psychology, human resources, personal growth, and entrepreneurship, Vanya Koonce draws on a wide range of coaching skills in her private practice, BeYourself.

Vanya is also the co-founder of an exciting new, interactive coaching app, AgilGoals, designed to provide business, executive, and personal development coaches a simple, innovative way to extend communication and offer their clients support outside of coaching sessions. Her excellent coaching reputation and development of the AgilGoals software app led Vanya to be invited by the “Jobs Vision Success SoCal” in Los Angeles to empower women as a mentor in their popular WoMentoring program.
