UPfront Relationship impacts @ workCoaching the coaches

Auckland’s primary and intermediate principals experienced first hand the benefits of coaching as the International Coaching Federation’s New Zealand branch celebrated “international coach week” in mid-March.
To mark the week, Auckland life and business coaches donated 60 hours of free coaching time to 20 school principals and the “phone ran hot” with uptakes, according to ICF spokesperson Kristin Liggins.
It’s the first time local members have marked an occasion that’s been celebrated in the US for five years. Auckland’s branch of the ICF now has 80 coaches acting as sounding boards, mentors and motivators for their clients – helping solve business problems, tackling career transitions or working through personal situations.
ICF’s Auckland spokesperson Linda Matuscha says coaching clients are usually “well-educated motivated professionals who either want to achieve more in their business lives or find better balance in their personal lives”.
Coaching, she says, is now high profile service industry that has grown rapidly over the past five years.
Promoting professionalism in the industry is big part of what ICF is all about. Apart from helping lift the Federation’s profile, coaching week included networking evening for current and aspiring coaches and the launch of coaching newsletter.
