The Organization – International Coaching Federation Vancouver, Coach-Giving Leadership Program

The International Coaching Federation is advancing the coaching profession so coaching becomes an integral part of society. Our members lead this journey by representing the highest quality in professional coaching.

The Coach-Giving Leadership Program

The International Coach Federation (ICF) Vancouver Charter Chapter Coach-Giving Leadership Program is specifically designed for and offered to any Non-Profit Organization.   This Leadership Coaching initiative enables a powerful step forward in enhancing leadership effectiveness in the NPO sector.

ICF defines Coaching as partnering with a Coachee in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires the Coachee to maximize his/her personal and professional potential, which is particularly important in today’s uncertain and complex environment.   The Coach honors the Coachee as the expert in his/her life and work, and believes every Coachee is creative, resourceful and whole.  This process helps Coachees to dramatically improve their outlook on work and life, while enhancing their leadership competencies and unlocking their yet to be realized potential.
