International Coaching Week 2019

ICW 2019 April 29th-May 5th ICF Ireland

Running April 29-May 5, 2019, International Coaching Week (ICW) is a week-long celebration to educate the public about the value of working with a professional coach!

This year marks the 20th anniversary of ICW and we invite you to join in this momentous celebration! Because of the participation of local chapters, coaching circles and members alike, ICW has grown exponentially.

Since 2015 alone, local participation has increased by 70 percent! We look forward to an even bigger 2019.

ICF Ireland’s is supporting a signature event for ICW that will be held in Belfast on May 2nd. A masterclass with Gerry Duffy at HSC Leadership Centre as part of their Lessons from Leaders. Some of our members will know Gerry from our event that we hosted last month. The masterclass will prove to be equally rewarding.

We encourage our coaching circles and members to speak and openly talk about coaching and its benefits to those who have not tried coaching yet or are curious. ICW is a way to share the value and benefit of coaching as well as experience coaching (hence the hashtag #ExperienceCoaching).

If you are planning any events or pro-bono coaching sessions in your coaching circle or area, please do let us know and we can share on our SM channels.

Don’t forget to use

Here are a few tips for your ICW in 2019:

  • Provide complimentary laser coaching sessions to introduce coaching to your community.
  • Collaborate with a local nonprofit whose mission and values align with those of ICF to host a panel discussion or deliver pro bono coaching to its clients.
  • Educate your circle members on how to leverage traditional and social media to spread the word about professional coaching and its benefits.
  • If you maintain a blog, plan a series of posts during ICW. Don’t forget to share links on your social media channels and use the hashtags!

Let us know of any events you are hosting and we’ll help spread the word for ICW.
