Upon becoming a member, coaches will have access to best practices in coaching, academic research, innovative and emerging trends, tools and resources and continuing education provided by Global IOC managing partners. Study groups and forums focusing on areas of professional development relevant to the targeted development of the member will also be offered.

What You Will Learn
Coaching is first about the connection between the coach and client that leads to both a supportive and challenging environment. Without a relationship between the coach and client. coaching often remains superficial and does not deliver on expected results. Next, clarifying what is most important to the client lays the foundation for successful outcomes in coaching. Successful coaching is also based upon conversations that both deepen learning and understanding of self and the world. Ultimately, coaching champions and challenges individuals to develop and grow into the best version of themselves. In a corporate setting, leaders and managers also help to remove challenges so that peak performance can be achieved. Finally, coaching requires a commitment and follow-though on action steps to achieve goals.
The Imago Coaching program begins with a proprietary model for coaching based upon guidelines established by WABC™ and the larger body of coaching research. The model delineates core competencies believed to be essential for demonstrating expertise in coaching while providing coaching oversight that allows for practice that grows exceptional coaching skills.
