BOSTON, May 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Executive Coach Karen Carmody, President of Chrysalis Coaching & Consulting, provided pro bono coaching to the staff at Big Sister Association of Greater Boston in honor of International Coaching Week (ICW). This is the second consecutive year these two organizations have partnered for ICW.
During International Coaching Week (May 15–21, 2017), individuals and organizations from around the world are invited to "Experience Coaching." ICW was originally started in 1999 by ICF Member Jerri N. Udelson. Its goal is to educate the public about the value of working with a professional coach and acknowledge the progress made through the coaching process.
A proud sponsor of ICW, ICF is the leading global organization for coaches with more than 25,000 members and 18,000 credentialed coaches in more than 100 countries. ICF defines coaching as partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential. Coaches honor the client as the expert in his/her life and work and believe every client is creative, resourceful, and whole.
The Big Sister Association of Greater Boston serves more than 2,700 girls, age 7-20, through professionally supported relationships with trained women mentors and enrichment activities led by expert staff. Big Sister Boston earned the 2016 Agency of the Year award for service excellence from the federation's Nationwide Leadership Council.
"I'm thrilled to partner again this year with this deserving organization to celebrate ICW," said Carmody. "I've seen first-hand the impact that this staff has had on young girls in Greater Boston. The Big Sister staff members are dedicated to helping girls realize their full potential. As an executive coach, I strive to unlock my clients' full potential."
"Coaching is a critical component of professional development," said Big Sister Boston CEO Deborah Re. "We are heavily invested in tapping into areas where our staff want to grow and thankful for the opportunity to partner again with Chrysalis to offer this unique and important experience." The Big Sister's Human Resources department reported that six of the employees that were coached by Carmody in 2016 have earned promotions at Big Sister and another was recognized as the Employee of the Year.
Carmody is a long-time supporter of the Big Sister Boston. She previously served as a Young Professional Board Member and is currently a Big for a Day (BFAD) volunteer. BFAD is a program designed to serve girls on the waiting list to receive Big Sisters.
In addition to working with her corporate and individual executive coaching and consulting clients, Carmody also provides coaching and mentoring to non-profit organizations.
