WHY ATTEND THE ICF RALEIGH CHAPTER CONFERENCE?
As an innovative chapter that won 3 awards in less than 3 years, our chapter's mission is to
embrace, engage, enrich, and empower our community. The conference will invite attendees to practice the art of conscious conversation and to shift their attention from individual concerns and judgment to a turning toward our fellow human beings with compassion, curiosity, and appreciation.
What is Conscious Conversation?
The art of conscious conversation is the expression of appreciation, respect and concern for others within our community/team/organization. It is a living process that involves awareness, attention, and presence.
This conference is about partnerships, it is about sharing ideas and resources. It is about committing to the change you want to see without the need to convince others that what they do or think is wrong. You will come away imbued with confidence and empowered to stake an authentic claim for your business/ leadership vision.

KEYNOTE SESSION: STRATEGIC COMMUNICATION
As the markets change, industries consolidate and our world seeks answers to many things, new conversations emerge, creating a cultural shift, bringing new language, work styles, and behaviors to the work environment.
Our keynote speaker, Jim Milner, will propose that incorporation of a coaching framework within the communication process results in a strategic communication and becomes the key for stronger conversations. Today’s leaders can lead this movement by making a conscious effort to hold relevant conversations that build meaningful relationships, improve employee engagement and retention paving the way for a sustainable and satisfying work environment.
