Daily thousands of ICF Coaches provide pro bono support to Social Impact organizations. Encouraging and helping with that work are the 18 volunteers from the ICF Foundation Council of Ambassadors who serve ICF Members and Chapters. With a passion for Social Impact through coaching, they answer questions, locate information, collaborate, and share the vision thought of the Foundation’s presentation on “What is Coaching’s Greatest Possibility?” In this blog article we feature two of these Ambassadors—Gloria Gbemudu, CPCC, ACC, and Osama Al Mosa, MCC.
As a member of ICF Nigeria, Gloria Gbemudu, CPCC, ACC, has experience as a Project Manager on their first Ignite Project in 2019. She also serves as a mentor to upcoming coaches who are working toward getting credentialed with ICF.
Gloria works as an Executive Leadership Coach and PQ Mental Fitness Coach to “…help more people… to actually grow the muscles to think positively and improve their performance.” She also helps Executives within organizations to bridge the gap between where they are and where they need to be to make the most impact.
The UN Sustainable Development Goals that speak most to Gloria are those focusing on good health (physical and mental) and on peace and justice.
According to Gloria, The Council of Ambassadors offers the opportunity “to show how coaching can help… society at large.” Volunteering is of particular importance to her. “I believe this [volunteering] is the purpose for which we as human beings and coaches have been put on this earth….” And she hopes to show the world how, ”… coaching can move the needle.”
