A Message from Our president

2020 Hopes and Intentions

Moving from 2019 to 2020, I reflect on hopes and intentions for the New Year.  Recently my 88-year-old Mom said that she wanted "to be accepted." Isn't that something we all want?!  I hope that we find ways to accept those around us by remaining open to the richness they bring. If we suspend judgement and listen with kindness and curiosity we may discover some true gems that otherwise we might have missed.

The SFBAC Chapter Board has set our 2020 member experience intentions.  We want to provide you with quality, professional opportunities for learning, growing, and connecting.  In February our coaches will provide pro bono coaching at the annual Watermark Conference.  This event has become so popular within our community that we filled our roster within a week.  We plan to provide more events in the future. In addition, we planned "Coaches Corners" in February throughout the Bay Area. 

You will have an opportunity to sign up and connect soon. There's more to come - stay tuned!  


I encourage us all to frame our 2020 hopes and set our intentions for a better year ahead!

Program & Event Spotlight





Mini Habits: A Small Tool for Big Success

We all have a treasure trove of habits. Some that help us others that hinder us. 

Come Mingle and Learn at our March 11 in-person presentation with James Garrett, a highly sought after speaker on how to work with our brain to achieve better results.

James will be presenting: Mini Habits: A Small Tool for Big Success.  At the end of the evening, you will come away with not only a connection with a fellow coach, but also concrete strategies and habit-building systems that will de-mystify why habit-building and behavior change are so hard, and how you can help yourself as well as your clients overcome internal obstacles. 

Don’t delay. Sign up today to secure your spot and take advantage of our early bird discount which expires Jan 12, 2020
