Coaching for everyone, everywhere.

WHO WE ARE

At the International Coaching & Leadership Institute (ICLI), we lead from our passion for transformational coaching and self-leadership.

Our curriculum, designed by award-winning educators and coaches credentialed by the International Coaching Federation (ICF), is grounded in world-class, hands-on coach training and transformational leadership experiences. 

Our instructors offer a wealth of knowledge and experience as thought leaders in a multitude of disciplines including ontological coaching, diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEIB), holistic healing, leadership consulting, financial wellness, and business development.

Our students benefit from rigorous training and an abundance of mentor coaching feedback so they are best prepared to provide their coaching services to a global world challenged with living and leading with agility, resilience, and cultural competence.

TESTIMONIALS

“We came to Coach Sophia a bit broken as a team and she healed us. She taught us what it means to be a life coach, and we are so grateful that we can share her knowledge, light and warmth with our students. What we received was perfect for us, and we are forever grateful.”

TARYN, EDUCATION LEADER

“Lorene moves quickly and skillfully providing tools which can be used to reach success … I now have a more enthusiastic, confident attitude at work. I am taking on new responsibilities, exercising new skills and ‘owning’ my position as a manager.”
