Core Coaching Competencies

When you start researching becoming a life coach or executive coach, sooner or later you’ll come across the term coaching competencies or core competencies. Usually, this refers to ICF core competencies, a list of 8 skills that every coach should have. The other major coaching organizations, however, also have something similar. At EMCC, for example, this is called the Coaching and Mentoring Competence Framework. Coacharya also developed a list of core coaching competencies to attempt to consolidate the language from across the various coaching organizations.
