Memberships

ICF Bengaluru Chapter is committed to reliability, openness, acceptance and congruence and consider all parts of the ICF community mutually accountable to uphold the following values:


  • Integrity: We uphold the highest standards both for the coaching profession and our organization.


  • Excellence: We set and demonstrate standards of excellence for professional coaching quality, qualification and competence


  • Collaboration: We value the social connection and community building that occurs through collaborative partnership and co‐created achievement.


  • Respect: We are inclusive and value the diversity and richness of our global stakeholders.


ICF is a non‐profit individual membership organization formed by professionals worldwide who practice, teach or research coaching. ICF has taken the lead in developing a definition and philosophy of coaching, as well as in establishing ethical standards among its members.


Through its own Code of Ethics, Ethical Conduct Review Process, Program Complaint Process and Independent Review Board (IRB), ICF sets professional coaching standards while also giving consumers a venue to file ethics complaints about ICF Members, ICF Credential‐holders or ICF‐approved training programs.
