How Coaches Help Their Clients
An effective coach helps clients maximize their personal and/or professional potential, unlocking sources of creativity and productivity. Individuals who have partnered with coaches report increased self-confidence and self-esteem, improved communication skills, increased productivity, and enhanced individual/team performance.*
How do you become the coach who can help your clients become more creative, productive and successful? Coaching is not necessarily intuitive, nor is it simply a matter of giving advice. Coaching is driven by the client, and coaches must learn how to interact with and guide clients in the pursuit of their own solutions.
While coaching is not currently a regulated profession, coach-specific training helps to make you an effective professional coach. Taking diversity and inclusion training courses and obtaining credentials gives you credibility in the industry, which helps you gain clients and develop your career. All ICF-approved coach training programs have gone through a rigorous review process that ensures the curriculum aligns with the ICF core competencies and code of ethics.
Core Coaching Competencies
The International Coaching Federation (ICF), the world’s largest organization of professionally trained coaches, defines 11 core coaching competencies, or skills and approaches, that every competent coach should demonstrate when teaching cultural diversity.
Each level of training, or credential, requires different levels of Core Competency skills. When enrolling in a CoachDiversity Institute Program, you learn not only the core competency coaching skills, but you get a coaching education grounded in diversity and inclusion from our culture change consultants.
