Happy September, Faculty

TMBC Faculty Newsletter – Issue 35

This newsletter continues to serve as your one-stop-shop for important dates, updates and announcements.

THE HEADLINES

Everything, Everywhere, All at Once – it’s not just 2023’s Best Picture Oscar winner, it’s kind of been the theme of our world lately. It’s not a spoiler to say that when a person is overwhelmed with chaos and uncertainty, focusing on what’s truly important to them is their best compass. That’s a gift you share with your clients all the time and one that makes an immeasurable difference in their lives and our world.  Thank you for helping everyone manage their everything, everywhere, all at once.

REMINDERS and UPDATES

Coaching.com Partnership Update

We shared some very important updates about our partnership with Coaching.com on the All Faculty Connect last week. One of those updates highlighted our plans to replace the Coaching Portal with Coaching.com’s Practice Management Software early in 2024.  If you were unable to attend, please be sure to listen to the recording (password: 0922).

New!  StandOut Community Coach Group

During the All Faculty Connect last week, we also introduced the StandOut Community – Coach Group page!

“We are a community of TMBC-Certified StandOut Debrief Coaches and StandOut Strengths Coaches who unleash the unique contributions of individuals, teams, and organizations. We are here to grow personally, to share our best practices, and to empower each other as ambassadors of the strengths revolution. Here you will find updates and resources that support us in leveraging the StandOut assessment and strengths approach in service of our coachees.”

Although this is a voluntary community to be a part of, we hope that you find it to be a place to connect, share and find inspiration within one another. Below you will find the step-by-step process to create your profile and access this community.

Seasons changing
Four seasons with Japanese cherry trees in Hurd Park, Dover, New Jersey

We began by acknowledging the changing seasons and reflecting on what it means to be in the “in between.” Feel free to take on that reflection as well, if it suits you.

Below are a few highlights from our time together.

WHAT’S HAPPENING AT TMBC/ADP

The place of work in our world is rapidly changing and evolving, bringing with it its own challenges and opportunities.  As Coaches and Facilitators, we see this with our clients and in our own lives. We wanted to share ADPRI’s quarterly World at Work report from our very own Nela Richardson, ADP Chief Economist and Head of The ADP Research Institute, and her amazing team of scientists and researchers. 

Please click on this link to hear more about the World at Work today and to read about what their latest research tells us about the “Hidden Truth About Promotions”.  There is also a bonus interview with Nela in this link. 

Enjoy!

“A very few of us might be clear-eyed enough to find ourselves, all by ourselves. The rest of us need help. Our noses are pressed up so closely to our own selves that we can no longer see what makes us beautiful and powerful. We need another human being to draw back the cloak of measurement and judgment, and reveal – to us and to everyone else – what’s been hidden”

― Marcus Buckingham
