What do you know about the International Coach Federation (ICF)?

  • ICF members adhere to a Code of Ethics and must have completed at least 60 hours of coach-specific training to become a member
  • The ICF has the only independent, globally recognised credentialling system
  • An ICF Credentialled coach has completed stringent education and experience requirements and has demonstrated a strong commitment to excellence in coaching.
  • ICF Australasia is a Chapter of the ICF, giving Australasian coaches a voice within ICF Global.

Each year the ICF commissions  a global study on aspects of coaching, carried out independently by Pricewaterhouse Coopers. Some findings:

  • 99% of clients are satisfied with the overall experience of coaching
  • Coaching provides a return on investment, according to 86% of companies
  • 70% of clients report improved  work performance from coaching
  • 70% of clients report positive impacts of coaching on relationships, communication and interpersonal skills

In 2010, Australia led the world with the first collaborative set of guidelines for coaching, published by Standards Australia in May 2011. Read about it here.
