International Coach Federation (ICF) is the premier internationally recognized certifying body for professional coaches. I am a member in good standing of ICF, and hold the credential of Associate Certified Coach (ACC) through that organization.
As an ICF member and an ACC, I subscribe to the ICF definition of the coaching relationship as "partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential."
I abide by the ICF Code of Ethics and participate in ongoing continuing education as a professional coach.
I am an invited member of the Forbes Coaches Council, an invitation-only organization created to facilitate exchange of ideas and resources about coaching as a profession. This organization allows for professional networking and helps me provide best-in-class resources for my clients.
I completed my professional coach training through the Center for Creative Leadership and serve as an Affiliate Coach for that organization. I have been certified to use all assessment instruments employed in my role as a CCL Affiliate Coach. These include the Benchmarks 360 Assessment Suite as well as the Fundamental Interpersonal Relations Orientation assessments, FIRO-B and FIRO Business, and the Workplace Big 5 Profile.
I serve as a coach for Delta Leadership, Inc., based in Chapel Hill, NC. I have been trained to use their 360 Assessment Instrument, the Six Domains Leadership Survey. The Six Domains Leadership Model is an integrative approach based on sound scientific research and addressing the full range of leadership activities. This is a skill-based approach to leadership training that focuses on developing the personal strengths of each leader, rather than trying to force people into a single leadership template.
