Our next meeting is on September 25th , and we are honored that Melissa Lubin, Ph.D. , the current ICFVA chapter president is our presenter.  She is looking forward to meeting all of us so hope that you can be there.  This is also a good meeting to bring a guest! 

In the 21st Century the practice of coaching has emerged as an actionable way for adults to learn. Coaching is a social enterprise where, through a process of inquiry, discovery, reflection and application, coaches help coachees to achieve their personal and professional goals. In her mixed-method dissertation study, Melissa Lubin presents coaching as a reflection of andragogy—the philosophy of adult learning. Through surveying and interviewing business and life coaches from ICF Greater Richmond, Melissa identified which principles and processes of andragogy inform their practice and developed 88 best practices for engaging adult learning in coaching.

In today’s session, participants will:


  • Understand the meaning of adult learning concepts and the impact to coaching
  • Take the Andragogy in Coaching assessment
  • Learn the principles and processes of adult learning
  • Determine to what extent you are applying adult learning concepts in your coaching
  • Review, reflect and share best practices in coaching
  • View the findings from Melissa’s study
