In Partnership with Mesa United Way

There's value in the coaching experience and the coaches of ICF Phoenix can't think of a better way to help the community than by assisting non-profit leaders in better serving their clients.

Mark Young, CEO of Mesa United Way, knows the impact coaching can make on the individual executive and their organization. Watch Mark below talk about our partnership and how coaching changed him.

"I met my coach...and I'm better because of that." "It's meant everything to me."

The United for Growth and ICF Phoenix Chapter Partnership

Mesa United Way and the ICF Greater Phoenix Charter Chapter are announcing their partnership in the “United for Growth” program during International Coaching Week, May 7-13, 2018.  In doing so, our intention is to create the spark for ongoing collaboration.

Leaders and staff of fifteen non- profit organizations in the East Valley are looking for qualified coaches to partner with our chapter to help them and their organizations become more successful on a pro-bono basis. These organizations provide a tremendous benefit to all aspects of the community.

2) Send an email to indicating your preferred non-profit organization.

3) You will receive an email from ICF introducing you to Mesa United Way and the non-profit organization you have selected.

4) The introduction will invite you and the leader of the non-profit organization to coordinate next steps:

a)      To connect and discuss leadership/ organizational needs;

b)      Agree on the length of the pro-bono engagement;

c)      Envision a successful outcome for the coaching;

d)      Create a mutually agreed upon path that achieves the client’s goals;

e)      Act on the plan and have fun!
