Mentor Coaching

Mentor Coaching is where you will develop your unique style as a coach.  You will be both a coach and a client, and participate in role plays, round robin questioning and group feedback.  An experienced coach (PCC) and member of faculty will provide one on one feedback to support you to develop your client management and coaching expertise.

Observed Coaching

By the time you reach Observed Coaching, you are nearing graduation.  It's a chance to showcase your new coaching skills and increase your coaching mastery.  An expert coach (PCC) and member of faculty will provide you with written feedback and observe you as coaching at PCC level.

Portfolio Creation

The coaching market is saturated with cookie cutter coaches - learning the same old models (GROW model etc.) and coaching with the same old processes. At ICA we help you to create a coaching model that is unique to you.  This is how you will tell the world, and your future clients, who you are as a coach.

In addition create your unique power tool which allows clients to shift their perspective from a disempowering perspective to an empowering perspective.

Niche Development

Every coach at ICA graduates with their own niche, with the opportunities for niching being endless.  Our Niche development labs will help you identify your niche, and then explore it together with other likeminded coaches.

Peer Coaching

One of the most important components of coach training is applying theory into practice.  With peer coaching you have the chance to try out your new coaching skills and techniques with your peers, and at the same time, accrue hours towards an ACC or PCC credential. Many graduates continue their peer coaching networks long after they graduate.

Global Coaches Forum

All ICA coaches belong to our coaches forum, with coaches in over 92 different countries around the world.  Opportunities for local and global friendships and netwo


My most memorable moments were Observed Coaching and Coaching Practicum were both fantastic opportunities to deepen the learning and practice coaching. I’m very excited to use my coaching skills to help youth and adults find their purpose in meaning in life through a fulfilling career.
