ICF Communities of Practice 

ICF Global Communities of Practice (CPs) provide a virtual venue for those with a shared interest in a specific topic to advance their professional development; deepen their subject-matter expertise; and share best practices, emerging trends, tools, and tips. 

Each CP is steered by volunteer co-leaders who help facilitate the learning and organize the conversations, ideas and trends that emerge from the group. CPs are designed to promote active participation from their members. Sharing and discussion is always encouraged.

Webinar Presentations

Every quarter, each CP will host a live webinar presentation from a subject-matter expert related to its topic area. These sessions are also recorded and archived for ICF Members to access on demand.

OnDemand Sessions

All webinar presentations are recorded and made available on this platform. There may also be other eLearning sessions that are created by the CP and made available here.  Participants can access these sessions at any time.  

These groups are open to all ICF Global Members. For more information on an individual CP or to become an active participant in any particular CP, click on the CP title listed below.

ICF strives to provide continuing coach education that is relevant across various aspects of a coach’s practice from coaching skills to business development. The continued learning you will find here is offered in various contexts including OnDemand sessions and recorded in-person event sessions.

Below is a listing of all scheduled live sessions and available OnDemand session recordings. It is important to note that for ICF Credential renewal purposes, credit for a specific session can only be claimed once.  Watching the same session more than once does not warrant more CCE units.  For example, if you watch a live session, and then watch the recording of the session again, you are only able to claim credit for that session for the first completion. Tips for finding an OnDemand Session: Search by specific CP or credit type by using the search box. For more details on the session, presenter and CCE units, click on the title of the session.
