Great things happen when minds meet and conversation is kindled by a cuppa –
and the ICF Metro DC Chapter’s Coaches Coffees provide a way for that to happen.
Coaches Coffees gather local groups of coaching professionals for regular meetings over coffee or a morning beverage of your choice. These monthly or quarterly meetings, led by facilitators, are designed to provide opportunities for colleagues to explore topics of interest together.
Traditionally these meetings occur at a coffee shop in your neighborhood, but currently we are adapting to the current conditions by using virtual meetings.
Meet and Mug Up
Not only are Coaches Coffees a good way to share ideas and keep on top of trends, but they’re also a good way to connect with other professionals and resources in your community.
Typical topics include:
● Business development
● Current trends
● Professional development
Earn CCEUs for Attending a Coffee
Through an arrangement with ICF Global attendees can earn one Resource CCEU, issued by the Coaches Coffees Group Host/Leader or an administrator.
FIND THE GROUP FOR YOUR AREA
Coaches Coffees bring together coaches in the same geographical area for discussion. Usually these meetings happen in a local coffee shop or café. However, due to the impact of Covid-19, the meetings are in a virtual format until further notice.

Meetings are primarily educational, qualify for CEUs and are a combination of guest speakers, book club, and peer coaching and are always relevant to coaching professionals. We have been fortunate enough to have all of our presentations be from internal participants wanting to share their specialty, a newest book they are working on, a study they have read and would like to share, a book they would like company in reading and digesting, or the like. Internal participation is our bread and butter; referrals to relevant authors as guest speakers is encouraged!
