The content of the education


For several reasons we have deliberately chosen not to present an entire agenda for the ICI Coach education.
First and foremost, regardless if you are a coach or a coaching leader you need to be able to work in a field of loss of control, since an assumption could be that control is standing in the way of true coaching. The education is designed to create an environment of exactly that.
On top of that, the education follows the life of the specific run, meaning that we work with what is most important to work with at any given time to best address the development of the group and the individuals. So, the education follows the foundation of coaching.
