The International Coach Federation (ICF) is the largest global organization of professional coaches with 20,000+ members in 110 countries. It is the leader in establishing both ethical standards and coaching competencies worldwide and awards the only globally recognized coaching qualification.
ICF is dedicated to advancing the coaching profession by setting high ethical standards, providing independent certification, and building a worldwide network of credentialed coaches. Coaching is a distinct service and differs greatly from therapy, consulting, mentoring, or training. ICF defines coaching as partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.
