International Coaching Federation defines Coaching as partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential. The Core Competencies are grouped into four clusters according to those that fit together logically based on common ways of looking at the competencies in each group. The groupings and individual competencies are not weighted—they do not represent any kind of priority in that they are all core or critical for any competent coach to demonstrate.
The following eleven core coaching competencies were developed to support greater understanding about the skills and approaches used within today's coaching profession as defined by the International Coach Federation.

The eleven core coaching competencies are:


Setting the Foundation

  1. Meeting Ethical Guidelines and Professional Standards
  2. Establishing the Coaching Agreement

Co-creating the Relationship

  1. Establishing Trust and Intimacy with the Client
  2. Coaching Presence


Communicating Effectively

  1. Active Listening
  2. Powerful Questioning
  3. Direct Communication

Facilitating Learning and Results

  1. Creating Awareness
  2. Designing Actions
  3. Planning and Goal Setting
  4. Managing Progress and Accountability
