Technology in Coaching
As a market leader in the global advancement of the coaching profession, ICF recognizes the impact that digital coaching platforms and use of artificial intelligence (AI) are bringing to our profession. Coaching is now more recognized, accepted and accessible to individuals and organizations around the world than ever before.
A Coalition Focused on Operations, Ethics and Adoption
With these innovations, coaches, clients and organizations should be able to trust in the way coaching platforms operate and have confidence in the products they offer. To ensure this, ICF has been in the process of forming a coalition with leading global coaching platform providers to create operating standards and ethics that can guide coaches and clients alike, while making their choices in selecting their coaching partner.
ICF exists to empower the world through coaching. With this coalition, we aim at developing best practices that will be implemented across this emerging field so that coaches and clients have credible experiences they can trust and find empowerment in professional coaching relationships.
