Stand Out Amongst the Crowd!
What’s it all about?
Life coaching is a service and experience that most of us would significantly benefit from at some point in our lives. Whilst life coaching has played an integral role in the success of individuals and businesses for decades, its true benefits are only being realised today.
“Coaching is the second-fastest growing profession in the world, rivalled only by information technology… Coaching has evolved into a much more sophisticated profession based on knowledge from any other disciplines.” (Scott 2015)
Despite this, almost anyone can claim to be a ‘life coach’ and there are limited viable and relevant sources available which provide coaches with formalised and recognised training. International Coach Guild (ICG) was created to address the lack of recognition of worldwide coaching standards, developing and implementing meticulous assessment which guarantees far more successful coaches in the outcome.
Our sole purpose is to ensure the highest quality of coaching worldwide and represent ‘you’ as an expert in your field.
In order to do this, we provide ample, relevant resources and support in order to support you on your coaching journey. We provide you with ongoing monthly classes to increase your professional development (included in the cost of your membership). Furthermore, you will be required to attend live classes, study pre-recorded material and complete a number of assessments throughout your training.
Our Business Mentorship Provider enables you to assess the level of business education you will receive by your coaching school. If your school is part of this program, you will receive a minimum of 25 hours of business education as part of your program.
We understand that insurance coverage is essential as a coach and have teamed up with AON insurance to enable you substantially discounted insurance rates when becoming an ICG member.
There are plenty of networking opportunities to enable Recognised Coaches to connect with other coaches and prospective clients seeking professional coaches. To add to this, as an ICG recognised member, we display your coaching profile on our main website to display to the public. If you want facilities to carry out individual or group coaching and training, our ICG facilities are available to you at heavily discounted rates.
