As the international interest in online and web-enabled coaching intensifies ILCT and OTI are working together to ensure uniform adoption and extension of a best practices approach. Building on ILCT's experience as a leading provider of an ICF Accredited Coach Training Program and OTI's pioneering work in establishing the Ethical Framework for the Use of Technology series, ILCT and OTI are working together to train therapists and coaches alike in the use of technology in counseling and coaching services respectively.
In a statement released today, DeeAnna Merz Nagle, CEO of OTI stated, "We're looking forward to bringing all of our global experience and resources in the use of technology in the helping professions to the field of coaching. LCT’s longstanding history as the leading, international provider of coach training and online coaching resources for counselors, psychologists, therapists and other helping professionals makes it an ideal partner for OTI. ” OTI will in turn be inviting its member therapists to look to ILCT as the source for coach training as it is the first provider of training for therapists and counselors seeking the Board Certified Coach credential.
