International Gay Coaches Conference 2012

Fri. March 30, 2012 6:04 AM

The first-ever International Gay Coaches Conference, hosted by the Gay Coaches Alliance (GCA), will be held May 4-6 at the beautiful Easton Mountain Retreat Center for Gay Spirituality, near Albany, NY.

The transformative weekend is designed to help gay men who are coaches to improve their skills, build stronger practices and join a growing global community of others who as gay men know the transformative power of coaching. The conferencewill also be ideal for gay men who do similar "heart-centered" work – psychotherapists, counselors, social workers, educators, clergy, consultants, non-profit organization leaders, sacred intimates, etc. – who are interested in learning coaching skills to incorporate into their practices.

Conference sessions announced thus far include: Build-Your-Business Bootcamp,Working Smart with Time to Spare, "What's Your Sign, Baby?" or Assessments: How They Can Help You, Your Practice, and Your Clients, and Now That's a Great Idea! – A Forum on Ways to Promote and Market Your Business, et al.

"This is a great opportunity for gay coaches to be with other gay coaches in community," said Harry Faddis, a GCA founder. "This conference is also an opportunity for gay men who are not currently coaches to explore coaching as a new form of work as well as create co-leadership projects between those who coach and those who are in other developmental or healing fields."

The Gay Coaches Alliance welcomes choice, the magazine of professional coaching, as a sponsor of International Gay Coaches Conference; details and registration are available at
