"I find our (ICF’s) mission very powerful to work with. Imagine where an organization exists purely for the global advancement of the coaching profession. We are that organization! We exist because we want to create a thriving community and every member of ICF is an ambassador to accomplish that mission.
"According to the '2016 ICF Global Coaching Study,' 84 percent of coach practitioners believe to a moderate or large extent that coaching is able to influence social change. ICF has been working very hard towards fostering an environment where coaching enables societal change. This was one of the reasons for the creation of the ICF Foundation. Since its inception in 2004, the ICF Foundation has been instrumental in creating a community of coaches who are, in some way or another, a part of creating this change.
The question that we need to keep asking ourselves is, 'How will we work together as coaches for a better future?' We can be a force with a presence of more than 30,000 Members across 148 countries. We have an opportunity to develop partnerships and connect with organizations and people across the globe and ensure coaching reaches the farthest corners of the world. We can be the community that really democratizes coaching and creates a global impact. The work with the ICF Foundation is one such example of this." —Rajat Garg, MCC
