In September, the International Coach Federation has certified me as Professional Certified Coach.
I am happy and grateful that I could complete this journey together with my coachees, because they trusted me. One of the credentialing requirements is to be able to log more than 750 paid coaching hours. You have made this possible for me.
It feels like an enrolment in a professional register. The process of credentialing comprises a masterclass with peer coaches, which was very instructive and insightful, in honing my coaching skills. To be able to maintain the ICF credential PCC, I have an annual personal professional development plan to enhance my learning as coach. Moreover, I am bound by the ICF Ethics Code.
I have chosen to make this step because developing talents have been my fascination throughout my life. Seeing the possibility to be able to develop yourself further and grabbing that opportunity, learning from a situation and dare to make the next step. I practise this myself, that is why I have become a coach.
ICF defines coaching as partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential. This is how I act professionally.
As a sailor, you are never sure how the wind will influence your ship, you must be alert continuously and optimize your own choices for setting the sails. I thoroughly enjoy this feeling and challenge, I want to support you as a coachee in a similar way.
Founded in 1995, the International Coach Federation (ICF) is the leading global organization dedicated to advancing the coaching profession by setting high standards, providing independent certification, and building a worldwide network of credentialed coaches. ICF has more than 27000 members in 136 countries, of which about 6800 have the PCC Credential (in 2016).
