If you didn’t receive an invitation to complete the survey but would like to, please click here to share your thoughts now. The survey will be available through June 21 and takes less than five minutes to complete.
Last year, as part of the feedback collected from a member survey as well as focus group work, the great majority of ICF survey and focus group participants indicated that the ICF should institute some type of minimum eligibility requirement in order to uphold and ensure the future of ICF’s standard of excellence. Many members thought the requirement should revolve around training.
In response to the feedback, and also to support the work happening around our global branding initiative, the Membership & Community Committee has been been asking, surveying, talking, listening, testing, and drafting all kinds of ideas for designing possible minimum eligibility requirements. We have completed and reviewed results from membership surveys, held focus groups with various stakeholder audiences, had informal conversations, interviewed people, used existing research from past reports, and much more.
Updates around this work and survey findings have been shared with the membership along the way in various issues of the Coaching World newsletter as well as other communications. If you haven’t already, I would encourage you to read the June issue of Coaching World for more information on this work.
In addition to sharing your thoughts around this topic through the survey, please feel free to share your comments by responding to this blog post too. And if surveys and blogs aren’t your thing, representatives from the Committee will be hosting a real live conversation on this matter on June 18 at 10 a.m. (New York). Bridge line: +1.877.242.3279; Pin: 7400.
Survey. Blog. Phone conversation. Get involved. Talk to us!
On behalf of the Membership & Community Committee, we look forward to connecting with you on this very important topic.
