Melbourne Austraila (PRWEB) April 07, 2013
International Coach Academy (ICA) CEO, Robyn Logan participates in the first Sydney-based Coaching Conference in more than 10 years. The conference, hosted by International Coach Federation Australasia, which currently represents more than 1300 members throughout Australia and New Zealand, was held March 22, 2013 and attended by practitioners, researchers, service providers and students of this emerging field.
“The ICF Australasia Coaching Conference 2013 offered a unique chance to hear the latest in coaching research and education and connect with colleagues from across the wide spectrum of backgrounds, interests and stages of training that make coaching the dynamic field that it is,” says Logan whose Australian-based coach certification training program draws students from all over the world.
Logan added that the three-day program offered rich and varied content with world-class international and national speakers. Among those sharing latest coaching methodologies and research discoveries was former prisoner, Dr. Paul Wood whose ‘What’s Your Prison?’ five-step process takes people through basic understanding of their human condition, to realising the mental prisons that hold them from achieving their full potential, to taking ownership of and creating a future of freedom.
Other keynoters included Roma Gaster, co-author of The Equality Myth, a practical business book aimed at transforming business paradigms from hierarchical structures to collaborative systems and David Peterson, Director of Leadership and Coaching at Google, where coaches senior leaders, oversees internal and external coaching programs, and supports a variety of executive development and organisational learning programs.
According to Logan, the information garnered at the conference will enrich and enhance ICAs certified coaching training program and add to it’s rich 10-year history of delivering the highest standards of professional coaching accredited by the International Coach Federation while helping coaches establish a portfolio for a professional practice.
