Our New Trainers to Join the ICC Team

First ICC Training in Mozambique

“I am very thankful to the ICC and to Mozambique Coach for this opportunity to run the International Coaching Certification Training in Maputo - Mozambique and integrate another fantastic team of coaches in our community. These coaches from Mozambique are now in process of being part of our vast and qualified team of coaches, positioning the profession of Coaching as one of the best processes to support human learning and development at the highest level. Mozambique leaves a very strong mark on me, because the coaches who made this course possible in Maputo, showed great capabilities and skills for the art of coaching and also a high attitude towards people development, and observable behaviors of great impact on helping others show their best version both in work and in life."
