Coaching Community of Practice (CoP) Meeting

Strategic Thinking for You 

and Your Clients

How successful leaders think strategically and 

plan for growth differently

April 19 - 9:30 am -11:00 am

 Norwalk Public Library,  

1 Belden Avenue, Norwalk CT

Main Library - Chess Room


Our group's mission is to share best practices and explore trends and new approaches in the field of coaching within an organizational setting.

Making strategic thinking part of anyone’s DNA is a must.  In today’s ultra-competitive business world, the difference between success and failure lies in the ability to expand the strategic leadership capability of both coaches and their clients.

During this interactive session, you will have the opportunity to review a strategic thinking and decision-making approach that has been successfully adopted by thousands of leaders worldwide.  Not only is this a methodology that you can teach your clients; you will also learn how to apply it to yourself, your team or your business. 

Paul Butler, author and expert consultant and facilitator will lead our discussion to:

  • Identify key elements of a systematic strategic thinking process for analyzing and addressing business opportunities
  • Understand how to apply this approach to increase your ability to support clients’ growth
  • Help you identify ways to grow your own business.

Pre-thinking Exercise: To get the most out of the session we ask that you prepare the following: Consider your own coaching practice or career and identify an organizational issue that you need to address. In no more than two sentences, clearly describe what you are trying to solve.

Speaker & Format: Paul Butler, President, Global Edg, will lead us through an informative presentation with interactive activities and discussion.

Join us to deepen your knowledge and expand your toolkit!
