Our Story

Where We Began...

International Coach Academy (ICA) was created in the year 2000 with a vision to create a vibrant global community of coaches, and today is one of the worlds leading coach training schools.  We started with a pilot group of 20 students. Today we have trained over 4500 coaches from 92 countries around the world.

ICA Today...

Fast forward to today and ICA is a thriving and diverse community of coaches in 92 different countries around the world.   And, one of the things that we're most proud of is the ICA Integrated Coaching Model.  We have deliberately stayed away from cookie cutter models (Eg. GROW model) and instead, we ask our students who they want to be as a coach.  Their coaching model recognises who they want to be as a coach, considers their diverse and unique backgrounds, and showcases their coaching uniqueness to future clients.

Robyn Logan (CEO and Founder)

Robyn Logan talks about how she discovered Coaching, and how that led to the creation of International Coach Academy.

Too often I would see organisations implementing a 'band aid' approach to change.  Coaching on the other hand offered a deeper process of learning and self discovery, which resulted in a positive, sustainable and accountable difference in peoples lives and work.

Why Coaching?

So I introduced what I called at that time, "Authentic Learning", and later discovered to be coaching. I assigned each participant a "trainer" to meet with them for an hour a week and support them to achieve whatever goals they had.  The results were amazing.  Wanting to learn more, I then employed a great personal coach, and after 3 sessions knew that this was a fantastic method of bringing about deep sustainable change.  Coaching then became a huge part of my life, and changed the way I worked and lived.

Why Coach Training?

At around the same time as my "coach awakening" I was working with universities and other training institutions to help them move current f2f courses online. I had just finished my Masters in Education, specializing in Online Learning and was having a great time exploring the amazing potential the web offered training. It seemed a natural progression to share my new found love of coaching with the world via online training. International Coach Academy, a coach training school where anyone from anywhere in the world could train to become a coach was born.  CoachCampus, a community where coaches could network and connect started not long after.
