International Coach Federation Competencies — References and Resources

NOTE: we have elected not to use an academic APA style as is typical for a reference section, nor have we always included the original research (in many cases, we have instead included an interesting, readable article about key findings). We want to bring you these resources in the most accessible, user-friendly way possible. Our goal is that you delve in and enjoy a deeper exploration!(Please note that research is cited under the earliest competency where it appears, and is not repeated even if cited in subsequent competencies. Also, all links have been verified through Google Chrome and may or may not work using other browsers.)
