Coaches and/or Mentors are the individuals who provide a coaching only, or a mentoring only, or coaching and mentoring service to consumers.
The service can be provided either on a 1-2-1 basis, or to a group, or to a team.
Coaches and/or Mentors work across the whole life of a consumer and are not restricted to life, but also include business, sports, hobbies, and all other aspects of a consumers life.
To ensure that the consumer fully understands what service and/or product they are buying, the IRCM CIC recommends that each Coach and/or Mentor is REGISTERED with the IRCM CIC to confirm to their consumers that they are working within the international industry Unified Codes of Conduct and recognise the Ombudsman Service.
In this way, all Consumers will be clear about the service and/or product that they are expecting/receiving.
The full definition of ‘coach’, ‘mentor’, ‘coaching’ and ‘mentoring’ can be found on the internationally recognised definitions for the Coaching and Mentoring industry.
