Happy July. We are excited to spotlight member Betsy Pickren. In this post, learn about her legacy with ICF GA, and in our July 22 newsletter, learn more about what she is up to today. In Betsy's own words: "The Georgia Coach Association, now ICF-GA, changed my life. I started my coaching career by helping my friend, Phyllis Carrera, attain her CTI CPCC designation by being one of her coachees. My next step came when my friend, Gene Gallivan, told me that he was participating in the first CTI class in Atlanta (2000). He assumed that since I was a natural coach, I would be attending as well and I agreed. I was hooked!" "I met some of the best human beings in the world. Many of my classmates inspired me to continue my coaching journey. Augusta Horsey Nash, assisted in the CTI training, and she was a leader in a fledgling group called the Georgia Coach Association. She gently insisted that we all join the organization. Joining GCA sealed my fate. I fell in love with coaching and coaches." "I believe that to be a leadership coach, one must hold leadership positions to remember the challenges of leading. When the President asked me to become the Program chair, I accepted. The next year, I agreed to become a nominee for President. Up until 2004, the President had been selected by the previous leadership team. As far as I know, I am the only person who had a self-nominated opponent. That meant we held an election. Even though I won, due to timing issues, I didn't have any say-so in picking the Board, resulting with Augusta consenting to be my coach, Thus, the tradition of the GCA President having their own coach was born!" "My theme was EGG – Engage, Educate, Grow. EGG led to many puns, like: We have an EGGcelent Board! And we DID. We talked about many options for growth and decided that we were not ready to take on coaching in corporate America. We WERE ready to create a Strategic Plan that would guide our future. The Strategic Planning process and implementation succeeded because members of that EGGcelent Board stepped up to be future Presidents: Randy Brenneman, Kelly Jones Waller, Tony Klingmeyer and Catherine Perry. Other board members continued to serve the organization in different jobs. Tony and I co-chaired the first PRISM Awards in 2006, and we remained involved for the next five years. We did it because it fit into the plan." "Over the last few years, I drifted away from ICF Georgia Chapter, but rejoined about a year ago." Watch for the next installment in our July 22 issue.

Social Media Tip of the Week: “It’s important to remember that at any point in time, a visitor to your LinkedIn profile or company page falls into one of three buckets: a cold, warm, or hot bucket. As the names suggest, the temperature of the bucket directly reflects the temperature of the relationship between you and that visitor.” — Michael Stelzner Here are a few social media articles that you need to check out this week!
