What we're about

NW Coaches Connect is a Meetup of positive, pro-active and productive individuals who want more personal and professional business and life growth. We invite those who are coaches or want to be informed on how to be a certified coach or be coached. Also leaders and those orientated around entrepreneurship development and training. We do exactly what were called; we connect! We meet once a month and our purpose is to educate, build trusting relationships through networking, seek powerful synergy, and learn about each other and our businesses. We also seek to associate with like-minded individuals for growth, collaboration, and above all celebrate life.

NW Coaches Connect is for you if:

* You have a heart for coaching and connecting with people.

* You are building a business and want further development.

* You want information and training to become a certified coach.

* You work providing coaching but hungry for more growth.

* You want to attract new clientele and endorse your business.

* You want community and to connect with coaches, leaders and business people.

We are a safe place for professionals to engage, get equipped, and have more education to enhance the world you live and operate in.

We start every meeting with "talking points" and 30-second intros from all those present. We want to know who you are, whom your serve, and the solutions you provide to your customers, clients and the world around you.

Next, we introduce a special guest presenter who will deliver on a relevant professional subject matter (30-40 minutes) for all to apply in their business or personal life. This includes 5 minutes of Q&A's. We believe your goal is to GROW with every opportunity and this meeting will absolutely present you an opportunity, the rest is up to you!

The cost of admission to our monthly meetups is $10 to cover the rental of the venue. Any overages go towards financing our summer and holiday social events!

Removing Barriers to Effective Communication

Online event

Connecting coaches, entrepreneurs, and leaders toward a greater way to change the world. ______________________________________ Online Zoom Presentation from 6:00 -7:30 PM ______________________________________ The presentation, Removing Barriers to Effective Communication was inspired by the current social environment and is designed for various audiences. It focuses on connecting better by communicating more clearly, concisely, and often. This presentation offers Toya’s Top 10 Tips and serves as a resource to help people gain a better understanding of do’s and don’ts, as well as subtle behaviors that have the potential to lead to communication breakdowns. Participants will be reminded of the importance of applying "humanity" and "compassion" in their communication style versus communicating only to complete transactions. Additionally, the presentation serves to remind participants of their roles and responsibilities to ensure that they have adequately communicated and confirmed they achieved what they set out to do. ______________________________________ Toya L.
