Our Point Of Difference...

We'll help you identify your ideal client, and then create a coaching model that represents your passion, beliefs, values and purpose.

One of the elements of our training that we are most proud of is that we teach our students to create their own coaching model.  Often a coaching school will teach or promote a coaching model that is  based on the personal philosophy, passion or coaching model of the founder. So if the founder was a NLP coach then it's most likely the coaching model they teach has a heavy NLP foundation.  But, at ICA we stay away from cookie cutter coaching models. Instead, as educators with expertise in adult learning principles, we teach the frameworks and theories that have influenced coaching such as cognitive behavioral therapy, appreciative inquiry, NLP, emotional intelligence and mindfulness. We look the background, how it intersects with coaching and how it can be blended with coaching
