How Do I Choose a Coach?

All ICF Pittsburgh coaches are committed to upholding high standards of ethics and business practices, but their areas of specialty and their coaching styles vary widely. Some important factors you may wish to consider when hiring a coach are:

  • How well does the coach’s specialty area(s) match my needs and goals?
  • What is the coach’s background, including education and training, professional experience, and certifications?
  • Is the coach’s location convenient for me? Do they work in person, by phone, or both?
  • And finally, is this a person with whom I can form an effective and rewarding partnership?

When you have narrowed your search, consider interviewing two or three coaches before making a final selection. Most coaches in our community offer a complimentary session to help you assess your “fit.”
