Describe your business:
At Collective Growth Endeavors (CGE), we work with individual women leaders, women’s professional associations, and businesses committed to advancing women in leadership roles. We leverage the power of women learning in community and nearly 40 years of combined experience in leadership training and professional development to prepare women for next-level leadership. We offer group coaching circles, 1:1 coaching, custom workshops, and retreats. https://www.collectivegrowthendeavors.com/
Who is your ideal client?
My ideal clients are mid-career women leaders who are wondering where do I go or how do I grow professionally? They're women looking for a new career path, making steps toward a promotion, or figuring out an authentic approach to leadership. 
Why are you an ICF GA member?
I am an ICF GA member for two reasons - to be in community with like-hearted people and to establish a referral network. I firmly believe we personally thrive and our businesses thrive when we are connected.

Greetings US ICF Chapter Leadership!
My name is Karen Bychowski, and myself and Zach Prosser are members of the ICF Foundation Global Council of Ambassadors, helping to both raise awareness about the ICF Foundation, and to be a resource to chapters and members re. Ignite and pro bono coaching initiatives.

I'm happy to share that we are launching a new ICF Foundation Quarterly Call - starting Thursday, March 31st - designed to be an informal space for members to learn more about the ICF Foundation, and share resources available to support coaching for social impact efforts.

Information about the calls - including how to register - can be found on the ICF Events Page: ICF Foundation Quarterly Calls

Kind regards,
Let's Get Social!
In addition to our chapter page, we have a Facebook group just for ICF Georgia. We would love for you to join the group, introduce yourself (and your specialty) or start a conversation with the community. Join the group here.i
