International Coaching Week: 18 – 24 May 2015

International Coaching Week: 18-24 May 2015

The International Coaching Week is an annual weeklong global celebration of the coaching profession that takes place simultaneously around the world. This year is the 20th anniversary of ICF and it is also the founding year of ICF South Africa Chapter. We are therefore aiming for this ICW to be long remembered and inspiring.

ICW will be held from the 18th to the 24th May all over the country. In Gauteng, focus is made on exposing professional coaching and on getting involved in the Community. We will meet companies and offer workshops about coaching, and create partnerships with non-profit Organisations working in the educational, social and economic empowerment areas.

Our team of volunteer professional Coaches will be able to offer pro-bono support to entrepreneurs, leaders, managers, employees, volunteers, beneficiaries of NPOs and initiate personalised sessions and programmes lasting from one day to three months. In order to reach the maximum of Recipients, sessions will be implemented face to face but also via phone and video-connection.

Leadership is not something that belongs to others: it is about fully embracing one’s own possibilities and self- empowerment. We hope that our commitment will be able to expose the positive impact and the transformative aspects of coaching and to contribute to the action of the people who are making a difference in our wonderful, growing yet sometimes challenged country.
