2. CPDWL "Get to Know You" Meet Ups 

The purpose of the CPDWL “Get To Know You” Meet Ups is to help our standing committee members to get to know more about each. While normally this would happen organically during the WLIC, we are not able to spend time together and are not able to have informal interactions due to the pandemic. We have 33 standing committee members, corresponding members, and corresponding members - so we will hold 7 meet ups. We are hoping for 100% participation! This series will allow us to get to know each other better.

Business coaching focuses on aligning organisational and individual goals to improve individual performance and to ensure that the organisation's mission is achieved.

Wanted: Coaches!  We need your help!

Do you have experience in coaching? Are you willing to learn how to coach?​

In 2021, the coaching initiative will continue as a collaboration between CPDWL and Management & Marketing. As the WLIC will be a virtual event, the coaching activities are be offered online once again. There will be a variety of leadership, management, supervision and other topics for the participants.

Our goal for volunteer coaches is to further your own development as a coach, to prepare you for meeting with an individual to discuss their career and professional development. The IFLA Coach Training activities are available to you all: please see the supporting materials below.

For further information about CPDWL's coaching initiative, please contact:

 Ewa Stenberg, Convenor of the Coaching initiative.
