What is coaching?
Coaching is a thought-provoking and creative partnership that inspires clients to maximize their personal and professional potential, often unlocking previously untapped sources of imagination, productivity and leadership.
ICF Gulf Coast Chapter's Find-A-Coach is a free searchable directory of ICF-credentialed coach members. Individuals and businesses can use Find-A-Coach to identify and select trained, qualified coaches best suited to their particular situation.
To be eligible for a listing in our directory, a coach must be an ICF Global member in good standing and must hold or be working toward an ICF credential. These requirements ensure the coach has met stringent education and experience requirements and has committed to adhere to the ICF Code of Ethics.
What kind of coaching?
ICF Gulf Coast members specialize in a variety of different types of coaching. Generally, coaches work with either individuals or organizations.
Individual coaching is an excellent choice when you have goals you want to reach, challenges you're striving to overcome, ideas that need a road map, or in times when you're stuck. Partnering with an ICF coach can unlock your potential and set you on a path to thriving both personally and professionally.
Partnering with a coach can have a variety of positive impacts, including:
Corporate coaching builds a culture that offers employees at all levels opportunities to build their skills, enhance their values and build their professional skills.
It's an investment that pays off: coaching cultures enjoy more collaboration and creativity, as well as highly engaged employees than organizations with command and control leadership styles. Organizations with strong coaching cultures also report above average revenue growth in relation to industry peers (Building a Coaching Culture with Millennial Leaders, 2017).
