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

Our purpose is to grow and support the community of professional coaches in Orange County and the Inland Empire, California 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.

In 2021 we will continue our efforts to help coaches expand their businesses. At the same time, we will add skills development, personal growth and self-development, and life coaching as additional themes. These four areas are reflected in our overall strategy for our Chapter and are the focus of our many events.

Goals for 2021:

1) Support you to have a successful coaching business
2) Help you grow and develop personally
3) Improve engagement & connection
4) Have fun

Monthly chapter meetings

We meet on the last Thursday of every month to network, share and learn. Given current COVID-19 restrictions, we meet via Zoom. We make sure to take some time at the beginning of each meeting to get to know each other. We then move on the the education program, which is sometimes a talk, sometimes a workshop, and often a mix of the two. Throughout the year we will try to strike a balance among the four themes mentioned above. This year, we are making a conscious effort to include programs that appeal to a wider audience of coaches than in the past.

Both members and guests are welcome, and you can be a guest as many times as you want with no pressure to become a member. We also welcome guests from out of state, and out of country! 

Webinars

We host one, and sometimes two, webinars each month. These, too, follow our four themes for the year, and are usually free of charge.

Other events and activities

We also organize community outreach webinars to give members and guests a safe and supportive place to discuss current events that affect all of us, and to give back to the community. When able, we will resume organizing social activities and other informal meet-ups such as the Coaches Circle and beach walks that were so popular last year. 

Upcoming events

Live events, webinars, social events, networking and celebration - it's all on our events page and in the calendar. We welcome all ideas, and value your participation! If you would like to present at a webinar or chapter meeting, contact us at [email protected]
