Coaching and Mentoring has its own unique set of skills, and without the formal regulation of a Regulator, there are many Professional Bodies, Education Bodies/Training Organisations, Coaches, and Mentors representing themselves in the industry where they do not work to an industry definition or meet a unified standard.
It is for this reason, the International Regulator of Coaching and Mentoring CIC (IRCM) focuses on helping and supporting consumers with their due diligence so that they select the right coach and/or mentor, education body, training organisation, and/or Professional Body.
Industry consumers are simply buyers, end-users, clients, customers, students, and members, who can also be individuals from outside the industry or coaches, mentors, or owner/staff of coaching/mentoring organisations from within the industry.
To provide support to the consumers, the IRCM has made available Industry Directories for Coaches and/or Mentors, Education Bodies, Training Organisations, Professional Bodies, and industry-related Commercial Organisations that have pride in their industry and its reputation.
Therefore, if like us you are concerned about those who do not take our profession seriously and continue to damage the industry’s reputation the IRCM encourages all consumers to work or train with, or join IRCM registered individuals/organisations. At the same time, the IRCM encourages all Coaches and/or Mentors, Education Bodies, Training Organisations, Professional Bodies, and industry-related Commercial Organisations to join the single, central directories to demonstrate their pride and help us to continue to grow consumer confidence in the industry.
