Why the ICF?

Posted on Thursday, August 23, 2012 by International Coach Federation

Last month, we asked our Facebook fans to answer the following question, “Fill in the blank: I am an ICF member because _______.” Take a look below to see how our Facebook fans responded:

“I like to meet all the standards of coaching and keep updating globally.” (Abhishek Singh)

“I am proud to be a professional coach and I am continually updating my skills with the ICF.” (Caterina Barregar)

“I value and respect the stringent ‘quality control’ it requires to qualify as a PCC and MCC. Ensuring that we have undergone 125-200 hours of coach specific training; have had 750-2,500 hours of coaching experience; and have been coached by a mentor (PCC) coach to ensure that we have a strong working knowledge of all the 11 ICF Core Competencies, understand the distinct definition of coaching, and that we are meant to uphold and abide by the Code of Ethics. I love the ICF! Thank you for all you do!” (Malti Bhojwani)

“I am proud to be a professional coach.” (Anouk Boering)

“It helps to remind what I am up to. Being a part of more coaches who are really passionate about this profession. I am a CTI coach and having my written exam next week after a half year certification program.” (Carolin Zeller)

“I am proud to be a professional coach.” (Zora Inka Grohol’ová)

“I believe in continuous learning and accreditation.” (Patricia Muir)

“I am an ICF member because…executive coaching is a fundamental approach in much of management consulting.” (Management Consultants)

“It lends credibility to my work within corporate workplaces.” (Josephine Thompson)
