ICF Prism Award Winner
Vertical Bridge is thrilled to announce that Jennifer Gerves-Keen, one of our dedicated HR consultants, was the recipient of the coveted ICF (International Coach Federation) Prism 2014 Award for the work she has been doing together with Deloitte Consulting. Here is an excerpt from the press release sent out by the ICF:
“As a professional services Firm, our internal coaches lacked the knowledge and confidence to engage in holistic coaching conversations,” says Patty Tyers, senior manager, Deloitte Consulting. “Since working with Jen, the quality and depth of our coaching culture has improved significantly. Further we have expanded our commitment to coaching by continuing to develop an even stronger coaching capability in our leadership. “It takes a village!”
 
“From my perspective, The ICF 2014 Prism Award is a validation of what can be achieved when a coach and an organization work together to open up a dynamic organizational community that supports the individual while creating opportunities for the entire group to move forward.” said Jennifer Gerves-Keen.Congrats, Jennifer Gerves-Keen!

How to Recover from Burnout Networking

August 15th, 2013

Recently I was mentioned in a great blog article written by one of my colleagues Stevie Vu.  I believe very strongly that networking (I think we need to come up with a new name for this!) must be authentic and come from a place where one has a real desire to get to know others, a true interest in what they do and who they are.  When this is your primary reason for “networking” then it stops being “work” and becomes something you enjoy doing.  Stevie has written a great blog article on this, please enjoy.
