Welcome to the Orange County chapter of the International Coach Federation (ICF).

Our purpose is to grow and support the community of professional coaches in our county by providing professional development and resources to practicing and aspiring coaches who want to enhance their skills and grow their practices. We also communicate the value of professional coaching to the wider community and build partnerships with local nonprofits and businesses.

Upcoming events

International coaching week has been celebrated every year since 1999. This year, it takes place May 7-13.

The celebration educates the public about the value of working with a professional coach and acknowledges the results and progress made through the coaching process. Events are hosted by ICF chapters all around the world and in Orange County we are organizing a speed coaching session, based on the successful model pioneered by in the Netherlands.

The event will take place in Irvine from 6 to 9 p.m. on May 8th. 

We are inviting potential coaching clients from companies and organizations in Orange County to come and experience coaching first hand. Which is where you come in. Credentialed ICF members will have the opportunity to coach each client for 7 minutes. When your time is up, it's all change and the clients will rotate to the next coach.

There is a limited number of coaching slots, which will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. The deadline is also tight. We will circulate your details to the clients in advance, so coaching signup will close at 5:30 p.m. PDT on the evening of April 20th.

Coaching fee includes food, wine and juice

Full details of all future events are available here.
