ICF Path to Credentials

The TNM Coaching Academy is proud to offer the first Evolutionary Coach Training Program (ECTP) in the world which has been certified by the International Coaching Federation (ICF).  Not only do our programs offer the opportunity to become certified as a world recognised Evolutionary Coach but the program also provides a platform for participants to commence on a journey to move beyond coaching everyday success and on to coaching the evolution of human consciousness and global transformation.

 

What is the ICF?

The International Coach Federation (ICF) is the world’s largest non-profit organization of professionally trained coaches and therefore coaches accredited by this organisation stand out in the global coaching community due their excellence in professional coaching.  The ICF is considered the gold standard in coaching and is dedicated to advancing the coaching profession by setting high standards, providing independent certification, and building a worldwide network of trained coaching professionals.

 

What is the benefit of Affiliation with the ICF?

Affiliation with the International Coach Federation (ICF) provides credibility, community and opportunities for continuous growth as part of a self-regulating group of elite coaches.  Accreditation with the ICF provides accountability to clients and the coaching professions as a whole as ICF Credential-holders have proved the pursuit and completion of rigorous education and practice requirements that provide unquestioned legitimacy to their commitment to excellence in coaching.

 

What are the ICF core values?

  • Integrity: upholding the highest standards both for the coaching profession and our organization.
  • Excellence: setting and demonstrating standards of excellence for professional coaching quality, qualification and competence.
  • Collaboration: valuing the social connection and community building that occurs through collaborative partnership and co-created achievement.
  • Respect: including and valuing the diversity and richness of our global stakeholders by putting people first, without compromising standards, policies and quality
