Each has their own coaching model, niche or coaching application and will use this to create positive change in themselves or others

With over 15 years of experience teaching coaches and coaching in over 90 different countries around the word and in both English and Chinese, we have a deep understanding of how coaching is practiced in a variety of niches, countries and languages. From this we have developed a philosophy and training framework that will equip you with the necessary skill to coach anyone, anywhere in the world.
We then guide our students as they identify and develop their niche. This is something that might change over time, and as they mature as a coach. But, it’s what makes them different, and showcases who they coach and the problems they solve.

Hope Bear, Coach, UNITED STATES
Hope Bear is a graduate from our Vocational Coach program which teaches students coaching skills they can blend with their current profession. Hope says:
"My most memorable moment was during observed coaching when everything came together. I was relaxed, intent and able to experience what "dancing in the moment" felt like with my client. It was the first time, I could visualize the future, see myself as a coach and feel the full scope of what I was embarking upon."
Joanne Lee, Transformational Coach, TAIWAN
I have really enjoyed practising coaching, getting constructive feedback and meeting so many people from different countries. For me, the relationships and trust we created within this virtual community, and the feedback on how each of us were progressing as coaches were what I valued the most with ICA.
Enma Popli. Executive Coach, INDIA
As a soft skills trainer I knew how to speak, as a Coach I have learnt how to listen and question. I believe I am today far better equipped to help my clients achieve their goals. I intend to work closely with Clients who are facing changes that are challenging and help them embrace it.
Ramona Hinrichs, Blended Family Coach UNITED STATES
I chose to study at ICA because the school came highly recommended by certified coaches in my country who were ICA graduates. Based on their recommendations on the content and learning format I felt confident that this was the learning institution that would help me achieve my learning goals. Initially I stumbled across ICA in my search for schools that were ICF accredited. Ultimately, I chose ICA because of the flexible class schedule and international footprint. I liked the fact that classes could be taken independent from another in any order, which I thought was a unique structure. I was also excited to share a classroom with people from all over the world.
