For the Front-end Coaching Intensive for the Spring 2022 Cohort, we returned to at the Tarrytown House Estate and Conference Center for a concurrent hybrid program with some participants virtual and some participants in-person. A decision on the delivery mode for the Fall 2022 FECI has not been made and is dependent on the status of the COVID-19 in the metro New York City Region, around the United States, and around the world.
The Tarrytown House Estate and Conference Center follows the guidelines of New York State. They have sanitizing stations throughout the property, they have replaced their air systems with the required CDC filters and their food and beverage team is fully vaccinated (based upon previous protocols).
Please note that what secures your seat in a program is a deposit and not the application itself. In fact, we ask that you only complete Part 1 of the application for the Front-end Coaching Intensive.
Due to the impact of COVID-19 in the metro-New York City region of the United States, The Columbia Coaching Program (3CP) had been unable to offer our standard 1-week residential front-end coaching intensives (i.e., External Coaching Intensive - ECI & Internal Coaching Intensive) since the Spring cycle of 2020. As a result, we offered our newly designed Virtual Front-end Coaching Intensive by combining ECI & ICI into a single 1-week, high-impact digital learning experience for the Fall 2020, Spring 2021, and Fall 2021 as a virtual program. For the Spring 2022, the Front-end Coaching Intensive (FECI) was concurrent hybrid with some participants in-person at the Tarrytown House Estate and Conference Center and some participants virtual.
The Front-end Coaching Intensive (FECI) program for the Spring 2023 will continue to be concurrent hybrid in terms of the delivery mode with some participants in-person at the Tarrytown House Estate and Conference Center and some participants virtual. We wanted to clarify that the FECI is designed to be conducted in-person and was converted to virtual and then concurrent hybrid due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
It should be noted that while participating virtually is an option that is provided given the nature of Covid-19 and that our office tries our best to make the experiences of both the virtual and in-person program comparable yet that there are clearly advantages to participating in the program in-person.
Specifically, those who participate in the program in-person will experience the informal, incidental, and spontaneous learning that comes with in-person participation in addition to the networking taking place.
Lastly, we should note that based upon our feedback and discussions with our virtual participants from the the most recent ACI and FECI cohorts, many virtual participants had expressed that they would have opted for participating in-person for the intensive had they been given the opportunity to do so again. Please take all of this into consideration as we strongly recommend attending the FECI program in-person.
