I am please to announce that I have been awarded the Associate Certified Coach credential by the International Coach Federation! This credential is the culmination of over three years of work to accomplish and signifies a major career milestone in my coaching practice.
The International Coach Federation (ICF) is the leading global organization dedicated to advancing the coaching profession by setting high standards, providing independent certification and building a worldwide network of trained coaching professionals. The ICF offers the only globally recognized, independent credentialing program for coach practitioners.
ICF Credentials are awarded to professional coaches who have met stringent education and experience requirements and have demonstrated a thorough understanding of the coaching competencies that set the standard in the profession. Achieving credentials through ICF signifies a coach’s commitment to integrity, understanding and mastery of coaching skills, and dedication to clients.
To earn this credential I had to pass a 155 question assessment that tested my knowledge of ICF Standards of Practice and Ethics. To be eligible to take this assessment, I first had to complete Georgetown University’s Executive Certificate in Leadership Coaching, a ICF-accredited training program. To qualify as an accredited training program, Georgetown University had to submit to a rigorous review process and demonstrate that their curriculum aligns with the ICF Core Competencies and Code of Ethics. This includes students submitting recordings of their coaching sessions for evaluation and feedback.
I hope you receive this good news with as much joy as I have and I look forward to working with you in a coaching capacity!
