You are joining a highly motivated group of coaches, to help us grow our Community

There are very few people who come to ICA, do their teleclasses, get certified and leave. Most coaches love our community so much they want to stay on and contribute in some way. We are often approached by recent Graduates who are looking for ways to stay connected, keep learning and growing themselves and give back in some way to our community. Becoming an ICA Ambassador means you instantly belong to a highly connected group of coaches, the most highly connected.

Role of ICA Ambassador

As an ICA Ambassador you will be one of our biggest supporters and want to share your first hand experiences with the world. You will help us grow our school, and we'll help you grow your business.

To be able to confidently recommend a quality school with an amazing, welcoming community is a great feeling. You can also be sure that we will treat your colleagues and friends with the utmost care. We understand that it is a big thing to put your trust in us and we don't take that lightly.

Over 54% of new students come to us via word of mouth

1. Support ICA Program advisors by connecting with prospective students +

We will add your name to the list of people who are happy to be emailed or called by prospective students.

Researching coach training can be complex and confusing for a lot of people, and becoming a coach can be a daunting and uncertain prospect. So many schools, so many acronyms etc. From time to time we get people asking to speak to one of our coaches to find out first hand what it is like to study at ICA and to become a coach.

The sort of questions you would typically be asked are

  1. What research did you conduct before choosing ICA for your coach training?
  2. What was your learning experience?
  3. What did you love most?
  4. What did you find challenging?
  5. What is your coaching model?
  6. How did you decide on your niche?
    ...etc.
2. Welcome new students via the forum +

If you can visit the forum at least once a month, that would be great!

One of the things graduates mention most in their memorable moments is the relationship they had with their ICA community.  But, if you remember back to when you started, it can take some time to find your way around and get connected.  So, as an Ambassador, we ask that you welcome newbies in the forum when you see them arrive.  Just a quick and friendly 'hello' is all it takes.

3. Link your professional profile to us (and we'll link back to you) +

We'll cover this more in the tips and tools belowSpread the word about not only how coaching can create positive change in the world, but how important it is to become certified. Our in house IT team will help you link your professional profiles (LinkedIn, facebook, your website etc.) to us, and we in turn will link to yours from our website.

4. Organise a meet up in your local area (optional) +

It's informal and fun

We are getting an increasing number of requests for face to face events, and since we have students located all around the world we are in a perfect position to host gatherings. As an Ambassador we will support you to host an ICA event in your local area. We will work with you to define and create the event and we will promote it to our network.

Receive an Amazon Gift card for Every Successful Referral

When someone joins our program we always ask how they heard about us. If they then mention your name, we'll send you an Amazon voucher as a thank you. It can be used to buy coaching books, or in fact anything you like from the Amazon store
