Did you miss the recent ICF Midwest Conference in Pittsburgh and wish you could have been a fly on the wall? Did you attend the conference and wish you had clones of yourself to listen to all the parallel break-out presentations? The ICF Cleveland chapter was well represented at the recent conference, and attendees are kind and willing to share what they have learned from the conference by sharing their learning from the various presentations they attended. Join us in the August program to learn and discuss the latest thinking in the coaching world.


What you can expect from this program:

  • Insights from 4 Cleveland coaches who attended the recent ICF Midwest conference
  • Overview of the conference, and deeper dive into one topic from each of the 4 topic categories – Science, Business, Client, Global (about 15 min each topic) 
  • Q&A around each presentation topic 
  • Reflecting on how you could integrate what you have learned into your practice!

This program will be facilitated by our chapter members Tesha Nesbit Arrington, Brian Parana, Dr. Melissa (Missy) Ollendieck, and Chapter President Zach Prosser.

MelissaDr. Melissa (Missy) Ollendieck

Missy was raised in a Midwestern agricultural community where hard work created moral fiber and character. Those qualities proved foundational in a challenging private undergraduate program through doctorate level education. Besides her education, she pursued certification to teach Spinning through Mad Dogg Athletics, Inc. and to become a Leadership and Talent Management Coach.


Her accomplished military career gave her room literally at the table with Commanders to serve as their moral and ethical advisor. A Brigadier General requested her expertise for his medical center accreditation. She was hand-selected to attend a military residency program from the top 1% of her career field. Her military role as confidant gave her understanding to the complexities of leadership and the importance of why leaders need a coach in their corner. Currently Missy works for the Federal Government.
