Founded in London in 2012, the ICU emerged as a vocational university. As a school for Professional and Executive Coaching, it addressed the teaching of Coaching with a base established on an international platform of research and knowledge.
Currently present in 13 countries, the ICU’s mission is to provide its students with benchmark teaching, which is unique in its knowledge and practice of Coaching.
Our crest represents excellence with its double circle, in a nod to the Maieutic process (“giving birth”) as the origin of the client’s “Elenkos” or questioning in the search for goals (the top part of the logo). Finally, Praxis (practice), based on the representation of the client, who is the centre of the entire process, towards achieving the client’s established life objectives.
