Case Study aligned with the ICF 11 Core Competencies

The ICF, International Coach Federation, publishes 11 Core Competencies for coaches and these are separated into four sections:

  1. Setting the Foundation
  2. Co-creating the Relationship
  3. Communicating Effectively
  4. Facilitating Learning and Results

This blog series will use a case study and align it with these sections.

A retired VP, Edward, was asked to serve on the Board of Directors.  Because of his inside knowledge, he was aware of limitations on the effectiveness of the CEO, David.  Edward recommended a 360 evaluation and follow-up coaching for David.  The Board agreed and the HR Director was asked to make the appropriate arrangements.  The HR Director hired an organization to provide a consultant that conducted the 360 who then could also serve as the coach.  Initially David was resistant to the idea.  The consultant / coach scheduled a meeting with David prior to beginning the process.

About the client:

David climbed the ladder in his corporate career of 25 years.  He learned that being strong and decisive demonstrated his knowledge, skill, and leadership abilities.

About the coach:

Marie had a successful career in the corporate space and then decided to become an executive coach.  She became certified.  Building on her corporate experience and with her connections she built her reputation as a coach.
