IECL is aligned with the International Coaching Federation. We believe the client is the expert in their life and work, and our coaching approach honours that. With this philosophy in mind, we believe it is the coach’s responsibility to:
Discover, clarify and align with what the client wants to achieve
Encourage client self-discovery
Elicit client-generated solutions and strategies
Give the client responsibility and accountability.
Our approach to coach training is based on adult learning theory. This means it’s highly experiential and practical. As a result our students leave our training with the confidence to coach immediately.
IECL’s social approach to learning ensures optimal integration of knowledge and skills that creates confident coaches.
Our cross-disciplinary approach teaches a strengths-based model of coaching. IECL coaching is always solutions-focused.
Recognised by the Industry
IECL’s Coach Accreditation ensures coaches are trained in ICF Core Competencies and meet the standards required by our corporate clients. In 2022 we are working with ICF to transition our Accredited Coach Training to ICF Level 2.
