The ICF Vancouver Coach-Giving Leadership program is a leading edge one of a kind initiative at ICF Global.
Our program offers your middle to senior level leaders and individual contributors in key roles:
-8 hours of one-on-one executive coaching by highly skilled credentialed coaches.
-The leader’s direct supervisor plays an equal role in supporting the engagement as a leadership developmental tool and to the goals of engagement.
-Coaching goals are linked to organizational and individual objectives and tied to leadership impact.
-Pre-work package is designed for leader/direct supervisor to engage in a series of activities which lays an effective foundation for the coaching engagement
-While coaching takes place in a safe and confidential space, the direct supervisor and leader meet regularly to discuss achievement of goals, thereby ensuring success for the organization.
-Post-engagement surveys are conducted to measure success.
In 2014, our launch year, the program supported 80 leaders of non-profit organizations throughout the province of BC.
