International Certification in Life Coaching

About the Program


This unique course is geared toward training coaches to help people balance their lives. Many executive coaches need these skills since many executives don’t have balanced lives. This course is designed to integrate executive coaching skills to help executives balance their lives and achieve unprecedented results.

It is open to ICC-certified coaches and others who have completed suitable initial training.

Freer and Happier Clients


Businesses lose millions of euros, pounds, and dollars each year because their employees are stressed, miss work, or make poor decisions when they’re there.

The less stressed they are, the happier they will be. This course will provide tools to work as a coach with clients who are under pressure and want to be happier and freer.

Activities required to get the certification


Book summaries/reviews

Develop a written review of a book relevant to coaching found on the list provided in the training. This summary will be distributed to all participants and to the trainer for comments and feedback.


Coaching project

Participants must fulfill at least 20 hours of coaching, with at least two teams; each one will receive at least ten hours of coaching. They should present a written report of those coaching projects to the trainer, within six months of the initial training. You may also present a video with written commentary.


Written Exam

Participants will complete a written exam that will cover the theory and practice of professional team coaching.


Research Project

Each participant will complete a research project on a topic of interest related to team coaching. The written reports should only include feedback on the process and respect the confidentiality agreed upon between coach and client. You should also request that each client give ICC their opinion about the coaching process.

Self-coaching project

Each participant will work on a project for their own development. Participants should present their goals for the project to the trainer – the values it represents and their plan of action – one month before the end of the course. This project could entail a course of study or any self-development activity. The project should be finished in three months, and a written report should be turned in to the trainer.


Training Integration Questionnaire
