What is Coaching?


We follow the standards and codes set by the International Coach Federation (ICF).  The ICF Code of Ethics is composed of five main parts:

  • Introduction
  • Key Definition
  • ICF Core Values and Ethical Principle
  • Ethical Standards
  • Pledge

View the Code of Ethics and the Code of Conduct

Coaching Competencies

The ICF Core Competencies support greater understanding about the skills and approaches used within today’s coaching profession as defined by ICF.

Team Coaching Competencies

The ICF Team Coaching Competencies model forms the foundation for development of a specialty designation that will enable coach practitioners to set themselves apart in a crowded marketplace and demonstrate their value for organizational purchasers of coaching. This model is designed to build upon and integrate with the ICF Core Competencies in team coaching contexts.

Becoming a Professional Coach

Our members have taken various paths to becoming professional coaches. Common elements include professional training, certifications and credentialing, and commitment to follow standards and ethics set by the International Coach Federation. If you're interested in learning more, we encourage you to attend a meeting and talk with some of our coaches. Visit our Events Page to register for the next meeting.

ICF Coach Training, Credentialing, and Membership

ICF Credential-holders are part of a self-regulating group of elite coaches who provide accountability to clients and the coaching profession as a whole. They pursue and complete rigorous education and practice requirements that provide unquestioned legitimacy to their commitment to excellence in coaching.
