Communities of Practice

What are Communities of Practice?

Communities of Practice (CPs) are groups of coaches interested in a specific topic area. These communities are designed to provide a platform for sharing best practices, emerging trends, tools and tips among ICF Members to advance their professional development.

CPs are for coaches 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 passionate volunteer 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 are always encouraged.

Health & Wellness is not just about the absence of a disease or illness. It is about the mind, the body, as well as the emotional state. When faced with life adversities, many people find their health and wellness thrown out of balance. The fluctuating mood swings, energy levels and uncertainties affect their relations with self, others, and how they perform at work.
