International Coaching Week (ICW) is an annual weeklong global celebration of the coaching profession. ICW 2015 is scheduled for May 18-24, 2015.
Originally started in 1999 by ICF Member Jerri N. Udelson, MCC, ICW is intended to educate the public about the value of working with a professional coach and to acknowledge the results and progress made through the coaching process.
During this week, coaches around the world offer a variety of activities and pro bono services in their local communities to enable others to Experience Coaching and its benefits firsthand.
During International Coaching Week 2014 (May 18–24, 2015), the ICF will invite individuals and organizations from around the world to “Experience Coaching.” Here’s what ICF Virginia is doing to celebrate ICW 2015 with your help!
