“Team coaching is critical to harness teams’ collective expertise, energy and experience to accelerate performance and improve results within a team and across an organization.”

“Effective teamwork has a significant impact on organizational performance — whether it’s in a hospital operating room, across virtual offices of a multinational company, or around a small conference table of a local nonprofit. But great teams don’t just happen,” said Carrie Abner, Vice President of ICF Credentials and Standards. “Team coaching can be a vital element to the success of teams.”


From 2023, ICF will add two offerings;

ICF Accreditation in Team Coaching (AATC)

In any profession, proper preparation typically begins with education. With the ICF Accreditation in Team Coaching (AATC), coaches will be able to easily identify and trust in specialized education programs that will prepare them for the team coaching discipline as well as for the advanced individual certification.

This accreditation aligns with the requirements of the second offering (ACTC), so individual coach practitioners will have a straightforward, simple education path towards achieving the advanced individual certification.


ICF Advanced Certification in Team Coaching (ACTC)

Coach practitioners will be able to demonstrate their knowledge, skills and abilities in team coaching.

The rigor of the ICF ACTC is significant, with requirements for education, experience, guided reflective practice and an independent assessment designed for team coaches by team coaches. This rigor allows earners to truly distinguish themselves in the marketplace as an advanced practitioner.

I’m a long term (since 2005), experienced and active MCC Assessor. I’ve been trained by the ICF to assess using the PCC Markers. Since 2005, I regularly assess for ICF MCC, PCC and ACC credentials. I keep up-to-date with the latest ACC, PCC and MCC credentialing criteria and do my best to communicate such to all my mentoring clients in a simple manner.

One of the unique offerings for my clients is access to an extensive, exclusive library of MCC, PCC and ACC coaching session recordings, many of which have passed the ICF credential exam process. These are an incredibly valuable self-learning tool, and will accelerate your understanding of competency distinctions at each skill level.

I offer other products including The Upgraded Target Approach: Clarifying the ICF Core Competency Model, as well as Ten Characteristics of MCC Skill Level. And a very unique opportunity to hear 15 consecutive coaching sessions with one of my clients in the Butterfly on the Wall Coaching Series. You can learn more about these here
