Education Search Service (ESS)

The International Coaching Federation (ICF) does not offer initial education and training to become a coach (we only offer professional development for practiced coaches). As the accrediting body for coach-specific education and accredited providers, we cannot recommend any specific coaching education organizations.

To ensure quality education, ICF accredits coaching education organizations that meet the high standards set forth by ICF and ICF Coaching Education. To find ICF-Accredited Providers we suggest that you use our Education Search Service (ESS) below. The search for a coach education program is a highly individual process that depends greatly on your personal preferences and goals. The ESS is designed to give you basic information about all ICF-Accredited Education Providers.


For further information, please contact this training organization rather than the ICF office. The ICF recommends all approved programs equally and cannot recommend one program over another.

Organization Description:  
Program Description: The Flex Executive Coaching Programme represents a point of reference on managerial coaching issues, aimed at organizational development, team management and relationship management.
Through a strong managerial focus, the programme explores the links between coaching and organizational development with particular attention to the development of coaching skills. From this perspective, the Executive Coaching Programme of the Luiss Business School introduces participants to the practice of coaching in the managerial and organizational fields. It allows them to acquire new skills and tools to develop in-depth knowledge and practice of professional coaching and its theoretical foundations, valid for the accreditation of the most important international Coaching associations.
The programme aims to immediately provide tools and methodologies applicable in the practice of online coaching to train professionals in the "New Normal" era. The objective is also to focus attention on issues which, following the advent of Covid-19, have become more than current, such as the concept and importance of "business health" and a correct working style in the own professional context in the light of the strong changes that this is going through.
During the programme, participants have the opportunity to explore the many applications of coaching (individual coaching, group coaching, team coaching) and the different areas of application (life, sport, business). Specific modules are dedicated to the coaching contract, the reference ICF standards and the code of ethics.
The Flex Executive Coaching Programme integrates moments of theory with active experimentation to train the use of questions, presence, listening, feedback, intuition and the use of metaphors. The participant is also accompanied through a "journey" among the elements of emotional intelligence, developing self-awareness and the ability to recognize and regulate one's emotions. The partnership and the relationship with the client are treated with a view to the development of responsibility while theoretical models and practical exercises are dedicated to the management of effective communication and the coaching mindset.
