Celebration of Coaching Week
Bermuda has joined other members of the Caribbean chapter of the International Coach Federation in a celebration of Coaching Week, from April 28 to May 4.
Some 30 members of the ICF across ten member countries, and two non-member countries, comprise the Caribbean chapter, which was formed in January.
Bermuda members are Pamela Barit Nolan, elected vice-president of the chapter, as well as Norma Nielsen — Bermuda’s first ICF-credentialled coach — Jenni Paradine-Paul and Vaughn Mosher.
The ICF is the leading global organisation of professional, personal and business coaches with members in 145 nations, a statement from the Bermuda chapter said. It offers an internationally recognised coach credentialling programme, a process that normally takes more than three years.
Mrs Barit Nolan said: “I am excited to be part of this initiative that brings together professional standards and a network for both people interested in becoming a coach and also for those seeking the services of a qualified and accredited coach. Coaching is a powerful tool within organisations and for individuals. We hope that this chapter will enable people to more easily access the services of professionally qualified coaches.”
The ICF is active in representing all facets of the professional coaching industry including executive, life vision and enhancement, leadership, team, relationship, and career coaching, the statement said.
The ICF defines coaching as “partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximise their personal and professional potential”.
The Caribbean chapter’s focus for 2019-2021 will be to build strategic partnerships with business and industry and begin a pipeline of virtual and local offerings designed to assist members in their certification, accreditation and ongoing professional development, the statement said.
