International Coaching Week (ICW) is an annual week-long global celebration of the coaching profession, intended to increase the visibility, understanding and impact of coaching. ICW 2017 is scheduled for May 15 to 21, 2017.
Originally started in 1999 by ICF Member Jerri N. Udelson, MCC, ICW is intended to educate the public about the value of working with a professional coach and to acknowledge the results and progress made through the coaching process.
During this week, coaches around the world offer a variety of activities and pro-bono services in their local communities to enable others to Experience Coaching and its benefits first hand. From educational sessions, to coaching demonstrations, to panel discussions, ICW offers something for everyone.
