This year the ICW will take place from 17 to 23 May with a common theme proposed by ICF Global to all chapters and members: "Defying Challenging Times". We renew our invitation to design events, initiatives and pro-bono sessions aimed at the dissemination and experimentation of ICF professional coaching, taking into account this year's theme, both in terms of communication and content.
The International Coaching Week is an opportunity to make noise in our communities and to get out of our microcosm of professional coaches. Your interventions should be designed to reach a broader audience rather than fellow coaches. ICW celebrates the impact of our profession across the board and is a time to share it with organizations, entrepreneurs, freelancers, families, friends and neighbors.
Launched in 1999 the ICW is a celebration of the positive impact of coaching. It is an opportunity to educate the public on the benefits brought by establishing a partnership with a professional coach.
Professional Coaching has the power to help transform individuals and organizations. What's the best way to find out? Try it!
During the ICW we encourage individuals and organizations from around the world to explore and discover the possibilities that coaching offers. The public has the opportunity to participate in a variety of events, webinars, conferences, workshops, roundtables, public coaching demonstrations, pro-bono sessions, and many other activities organized by ICF members in their local communities.
The big news this year will be the event platform created by ICF Global that will allow coachs to deliver their offers worldwide and participants to find the international event that best suits their needs.
The platform has been made available by ICF Global via email on March 24 together with instructions for submitting events. In complete autonomy, you will be able to access the platform available on www.icf-events.org/ and publish your event, which must be aligned with the initiative, the competencies and the association's code of ethics.
The activities proposed by ICF Switzerland members with a credential will also be shared on the Swiss channels for greater visibility on our territory: we want to thank you for joining the National Chapter.
It is possible to participate in ICW 2021 with more than one proposal. Remember that the purpose of the events organized for the ICW is to spread the coaching culture according to ICF and share its positive impact with anyone who wants to experience it. Coaches organize events as members of the International Coaching Federation and not to advertise or market their professional services, courses and methodologies (the organizer is the coach and not the company, the schools, the partners).
It will be a wonderful experience of co-creation to live and let live coaching according to ICF!
