Through our values of global vision, global impact, systemic insight, collaboration, compassion, and persistence; we will strive to obtain our vision that coaching is an integral part of the thriving society. The Foundation is expanding the boundaries of coaching in the world through key focus areas:
- Cultivating frameworks for pro bono coaching
- Engaging in and curating research for the multiplying effect of social progress through coaching
- Connecting training organizations and targeted populations for coaching scholarships
As the ICF Foundation, we envision the greatest possible contribution of coaching to a thriving society. As coaches, we have an essential role to play at this moment in history. In areas from education to environment, coaching relationships can help bridge the gap between what is seen as possible under current scenarios and what is needed to achieve the thriving society.
Partnering for Global, Social Impact
We choose to partner for global impact, but how will we focus all our efforts?
The United Nations 17 Global Goals focus on a thriving society and flourishing of nature and represent the most ambitious effort in human history.
ICF Foundation partners with ICF Chapters and coaches, to bring the power of coaching to delivering the UN 2030 Agenda through the Ignite Initiative. the Ignite Initiative provides coaching for the greater good, demonstrating that coaching works, by building capacity, accelerating and amplifying the results in organizations around the globe. We define pro bono as “for the public good,” meaning our projects include both those without charge and at a reduced rate.
