Why hire a certified coach…

Certification is important…

Anyone can call him or herself a coach. Before hiring a coach it’s important to find out if she or he has met the requirements necessary for certification.

The International Coach Federation (ICF) is the governing body of the coaching profession. A coach who has been credentialed by ICF has completed stringent education and experience requirements and has demonstrated a strong commitment to excellence in coaching.

ICF certification means a coach:

  • has received professional training from a program specifically designed to teach coaching skills in alignment with the ICF Core Competencies and Code of Ethics
  • has demonstrated a proficient understanding and use of the coaching competencies as outlined by the ICF
  • is accountable to the ethics and standards set forth by the ICF

ICF certification does not necessarily mean a coach has completed training specific to ADHD coaching.  My training was with the ADD Coach Academy (ADDCA) and JST Coaching for Teens and College Students with ADHD.
