LEXINGTON, Ky., May 5, 2021 International Coaching Week (ICW) 2021 will take place May 17–23, 2021, the International Coach Federation (ICF) has announced.
Join thousands of professional coaches and their clients, in celebrating the difference coaching can make in the world. The International Coaching Federation (ICF) is announcing a week of events, online and around the world’s time-zones, to recognise and promote the power and impact of coaching.
The professional coaches that make up 140+ ICF chapters in more than 80 countries and territories, will be using their extensive knowledge and experience to offer workshops, demonstrations and free coaching sessions, to make 2021’s International Coaching Week one to remember.
The theme for the 22nd International Coaching Week is ‘Defying Challenging Times,’ – something that we all need at the moment. ICF professional coaches are skilled at assisting individuals, teams, organisations and communities to look to the future in a positive way.
Coaching is about partnering with people in a creative and thought-provoking process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential. ICF CEO Magdalena Nowicka Mook says ‘…the process of coaching often unlocks previously untapped sources of imagination, productivity and leadership’.
This year, ICF makes partnering easy, with a new ICF events’ platform where any professional ICF coach member can offer an event in their own language and time zone – making coaching more accessible for everyone. https://www.icf-events.org/international-coaching-week-events/.
Currently there are 500+ events in 15 languages and from 40+ countries available for you to choose from – enough for you to find an event that catches your interest; and if you are one of ICF’s 45,000+ members worldwide, just sign-in and create your own event.
