Bringing commitment to CANI constant.
Receiving and accepting feedback to willingly learn and grow continuously.
Consistently staying abreast of the coaching market, trends and development.

Effectively managing self involves:
Demonstrating personal awareness of who you are, including your strengths and stretches.
Taking responsibility for what you can influence.
Taking yourself lightly with a good sense of humour.
Managing your own emotional state.
"You do the work and you go to work on yourself, in a way TCI parented me. It taught me the things that I needed to hear growing up."

Demonstrating genuine care for the client's perspective and personal style.
Normalising and validating the client's truth.
Demonstrating empathy rather than sympathy.
Bringing insatiable curiosity and staying open to exploring new perspectives.

It’s been awesome! You all need to be here! Those ICG core competencies that we have to learn became real for me, and are now something that I am going to use on a daily basis with my clients. They’re going to help me be a better coach and a better person I actually really loved that everyone was so involved and so excited that each person that came up got a standing ovation. The excitement in the room was electric. It’s just taken it all to another level!

Standards need to be high, that type of value has really spoken to me this weekend. The trainers have been awesome! I’m just so happy to see TCI coaches as well, getting up and developing their coaching skills, hearing their perspectives as essentially just one of us amongst the students. The variety of trainers has been fantastic, it has added so much flavour to the training!
- Barry McElhinney
I’m really excited and so happy I’ve joined the ICG membership, I would encourage others to do so because there is a lot of value. The thing that’s standing out for me from the summit was really raising my standards and keeping the promises I’ve made to myself. It was super! They were just really awesome! It has exceeded my expectations.
- Irma Zimmermann
I feel myself just engaging in everything that I’m doing and where I’m at. I love this new model that Sharon’s introduced because it’s giving me a lot more flexibility across the whole realm and figuring out where the clients at and where I’m at. The values been really big. It adds a whole new dimension to the way I perceive everything. I’m loving that because I’m really able to get some clarity around where I’m at with my clients and myself.
- Steve Hall
I think it’s perfect! It’s great training with great people and I feel fully pumped and ready to rock on in the future! I’ve got a lot of breakthroughs this weekend. A lot of things have blown my mind and challenged my beliefs. I love it!
- Sergey Borovik
I’m always excited to be at TCI! I feel like I feed off of the environment and the people. It just gives you a more whole feeling, being able to create a more wordly understanding than a simple one-track understanding for me. It’s been the playfulness and how the coaches bring that into the coaching environment to relax the client, out of that comes the creative learning moment.
- Amanda Ghea
It gives you a credibility that is hard to find out there in the coaching world. It elevates the coaching industry, it elevates us as coaches within that industry. It gives us certainty and respect and all of those different things to our clients so that they know that they’re getting quality. What I also love is that it’s an international recognition.
- Sasha Dumaresq
Love the Wow team! You're all pretty amazing at TCI, Absolutely love the new direction. I love the possibilities that it opens up for all of us and the coaching environment. Loving the reassurance it's given me around my approach!
- Sharon Hickey
It's awesome hearing that there are people and organisations out there that are genuinely interested in the professional bodies we're associated with and the standards of that body. Got heaps from Hayley's session. Simple strategies filled with awesome value!
- Yaja Nowakowski
Phenomenal, I loved it. I love the people, I love the culture, I love all the ideas that are coming out. It’a exactly what I wanted, the energy that I pictured. It gave me a really good outline of what the standards are and where I want to be.
- Kellie Lloyd
It’s been great catching up with everybody. Just seeing all the fantastic people, and other people coming up into key. What I’ve been doing this year is actually those attributes, “What do I need to be to be where I need to go”, and applying that now. It effects everything, I loved today!
