Quality is indispensable for coaching to be a worldwide human resource professional development instrument.
Together with experienced business coaches, coaching experts from well-known companies and science and research, as well as education and training providers, we have developed quality criteria for coaches, their ethics, coaching process and coaching education and training.
Quality is not static. Quality entails continuous development. To this end we link all relevant stakeholders in the coaching market from all coaching perspectives, foster coaching research and set very high demands on the qualification and professionalism of our members. The fundamentals for our understanding of quality, ethical standards and our expectations of coaching education and training have been compiled in the Coach Competence Model (CCM).
Our understanding of quality and our quality standards are described in detail in the IOBC Coaching Compendium "Coaching as a profession".
