SCP July 2024 Town Hall Meeting

July 29, 2024
6:00-7:00 EST

We invite you to attend a monthly one hour Town Hall via zoom hosted by Marc Sokol, our 2024 SCP President. This is an opportunity to come together as a professional community, to share your experience and discover that of other SCP members. Each month we will start with a topic of interest featuring some aspect of our society. We will then open it up to wider discussion of any topics those online wish to bring up.

2024 Town Halls meetings will feature an array of topics including:

  • How did mentors shape the progress of your career?
  • How can peer coaching raise your game as a consultant?
  • Best consulting practices from a member of our Financial Psychology Special Interest Group
  • Consulting to the United Nations and how you can contribute
  • How consulting to a family business is different (we have a Special Interest Group for that!)
  • Do you want to publish a professional book? Tips from our Consulting Series editor.


Our July Town Hall Focus
The role of spirituality in consulting psychology

Many companies have clear expectations about managing boundaries of religion in the workplace, while some embrace religious expression as part of their core for being in business. As consultants we generally step aside of such discussions in our work. However, many see spirituality as more than religious expression, and having a valuable place in the development of leaders, teams and organizational purpose. This town hall is a dialogue about bringing spirituality and greater mindfulness to our consulting practice. How do we as consultants recognize when and how to raise the topic, create a common frame for productive discussion, and offer up activities that can surface spirituality? Joining me for this conversation is Colin Cooper, PhD. A member of SCP, she is an industrial-organizational psychologist, and author of a perspective on heart-centered organizational development that can be used to foster more openness, unity and creativity among individuals and teams.

Dr. Colin Cooper is an Industrial-Organizational (I-O) Psychologist, Organization Development (OD) Consultant, Healer and Educator who integrates multiple worldviews, a transdisciplinary approach, and compassion into her work. She provides strategic planning, talent development, change management interventions, applied research, transformational coaching, healing, and education to private clients, organizational leaders, and members. Her efforts focus on creating sustainable, trauma-informed, multicultural organizations that employ anti-oppressive and inclusive practices, policies, and processes, fostering successful, humanistic individuals.
