Welcome to the New Coachfederation.org
Welcome to the new coachfederation.org! We’re excited for you to experience all this site has to offer. As you look around, you will notice a cleaner, more intuitive design than our previous site. During the planning phase, we put a lot of consideration into the reasons why you may visit our website. Thus, we’ve divided much of our content into the following main navigation items:
- Why ICF: For potential ICF Members
- ICF Credential: Contains all relevant information you need to obtain or renew your ICF Credential
- Find a Coach: For individuals and organizations who want to work with an ICF coach
- Research: Find our industry research, access the ICF Research Portal and tap into our research panel
- Accredit a Program: Visit this section to learn how to get your coach-specific training program accredited by ICF
- Events: Find professional development and networking opportunities
The search bar at the top will also help get you to where you want to be.
In addition to better navigation, I’d like to share some other highlights with you.
ICF Members will now be able to edit their member profile, read member news and access the Member Toolkit all from one place. We’re excited to introduce the Member Portal. While logged in, members can also take advantage of ICF’s Archived Learning and connect to Peer Coaching opportunities for ongoing learning and development.
Our sense of community is one of the things that we are especially proud of at ICF, but with more than 130 local chapters around the world, it can be difficult to find the one you’re looking for. Our improved Chapter Map makes it easier than ever to do so. Simply type your address into the search bar, and the closest chapter(s) will pop up with a location and website link.
A More Dynamic Coaching World
As part of our website redesign, we have merged Coaching World (our quarterly, digital magazine) and the ICF Blog into a single entity—a dynamic online resource that better meets the needs of our global coaching community. You can still expect the same quality content generated by your peers/colleagues as you did from the previous formats, and we encourage you to propose an article.
The new CW is easy to search, allowing you to sort content by category, author name and date of publication. You can also explore content via the set of recommended content at the bottom of each article.
Our previous website allowed users the option to view content in three languages. As a global organization, it was important that we expanded the number of choices with our new website. Our content is now accessible in more than 100 different languages via a Google translate feature. (Due to this automatic functionality, please be aware that it may not be a perfect translation.) To change the language selection, scroll to the footer of the website and choose your desired language from the drop-down “Select Language” box.
I invite you to take some time to explore our website and these highlights, in addition to all the other resources we have to offer. Thank you for visiting!
