Program Structure & Content
What are the Program Components of BDWS 22?
BDWS 22 is a multi-faceted program over Five Months. New content and opportunities to engage will be released throughout the duration of the program. Here’s what you can look forward to:
Dynamic Opening & Closing Sessions that frame the Workshop Series
18 On-demand content sessions (six per month in February, April and June)
9 Live Q&A Sessions with content leaders (three per month in February, April and June)
Access to pre-recorded bonus content, worksheets and articles
The opportunity to be assigned an accountability partner for active engagement in workshop activities and to participate in live group discussions and a dedicated LinkedIn group
What is the difference between the two Program Tracks?
BDWS 22 is organized into two content tracks, Launch and Grow. BDWS 22 attendees can attend sessions in either or both tracks and will be able to revisit all the series' content for up to three years of continued learning.
Launch sessions will focus on the fundamentals and best practices for creating a thriving coaching business.
For coaches who are looking to expand and further develop their practice, the Grow track will focus on strategies for expanding business reach.
How is the Content Organized over the Five Months?
BDWS content is spread out over five months to allow participants to both learn new concepts and apply them throughout the program. New content will be released in the months of February, April and June with individual and group business planning occurring in March and May. The content tracks for this year's event will span the three themes of BDWS 22 – Define, Position and Expand – according to the following schedule:
Within each month of the series, attendees will have access to on-demand learning opportunities, live Q&As, Ask Me Anything sessions and live chats with speakers and other BDWS attendees.
What happens in March and May?
March and May are when REAL work begins. This is when you can meet with an accountability partner to help you build on the concepts learned and turn them into action.
What are Accountability Partners & Accountability Group Discussions?
Upon registration, participants are encouraged to sign up to be matched with an Accountability Partner with whom they will meet during the course of the series. These meetings will enable participants to discuss and practice what they've learned. Every effort will be made to accommodate matches in geographic and practice area. (Request for pairings that occur after the program begins will be made on a case-by-case basis based on availability of suitable matches.)
ICF will provide templates and talking points to help jumpstart your business planning and accountability discussions.
Live Accountability Group Discussions will provide opportunities to meet other peers to discuss sessions and swap ideas. During these sessions, participants will be placed in random breakout groupings to encourage networking.
How can I access the Live Accountability Discussions?
Find the session that best matches with your time zone needs. Be sure to have the latest version of Zoom loaded on your computer. If you have any issues signing in, please reach out to an ICF Team Member at firstname.lastname@example.org.
