Course Description

This course is intended to help you get clear on the ICF Core Coaching Competencies.

Mastering these competencies are the key to successfully earning your credential from the International Coach Federation.

Coaching skills are tied to these core competencies and this course is intended to help you understand coaching from the ICF perspective.

In addition, Ethical Standards are introduced for participants to understand the expectations of an ICF-credentialed coach.

The course is divided into three sections. Following a brief overview of the ICF Core Competencies in Section One, the Ethics and Standards of a coach are presented in Section Two. Here you will review each of the areas covered by ICF's Standards of Ethical Conduct and complete a brief quiz for each area. You should expect to spend 20-30 minutes with Section Two.
