About The Event

With the start of the new year, and launch of the updated ICF Core Competency Model, ICF NYC wants to ensure our members are set up for success and feel well-grounded in the new competencies.  Our 2021 professional development programming will look to reinforce and highlight the updated core competencies. 

The Core Competencies, as developed by ICF, provide a vital foundation for the coaching profession and support greater understanding about the skills and approaches used within today’s coaching profession as defined by ICF. As part of a growth mindset, ICF revisits the model every few years to validate the core competency model against empirical evidence as the coaching field advances and evolves. Following a 24-month review that involved 1,300 coaches from around the globe and both within and external to ICF, an updated competency model has been adopted that provides a simpler, more streamlined structure and integrates consistent, clear language. Questions to be addressed during the learning event include, but are not limited to: 

  • What limitations were identified with the previous set of core competencies?

  • What was discarded and why? 

  • What was missing, and therefore added, and why?

  • What research was brought into the updates and how did the consensus/expert input model that was followed to inform the updated core competency model? 

This event is a kick-off to acknowledge and celebrate the launch of the updated model.  The event provides an opportunity to familiarize yourself with the changes, to ask any questions that you may have, and to reflect on the new model as it relates to your own coaching practice.
