International Coach Federation
The International Coach Federation (ICF) seeks to Advance the Art, Science and Practice of Professional Coaching.
The values of the ICF are
- Integrity: We uphold the highest standards both for the coaching profession and our organisation.
- Excellence: We set and demonstrate standards of excellence for professional coaching quality, qualification and competence
- Collaboration: We value the social connection and community building that occurs through collaborative partnership and co-created achievement.
- Respect: We are inclusive and value the diversity and richness of our global stakeholders. We put people first, without compromising standards, policies and quality.
I am bound by the ICF code of ethics which specifies my professional conduct, how I address conflicts of interest and how I deal with confidentiality and privacy.
As part of my ongoing professional development and training towards my ICF certifications I have undertaken over 100 hours of coach specific training, over 300 hours of coaching, completed written performance assessments, examinations and undertake going coaching supervision with an ICF accredited coaching supervisor.
