Coaches For Community

Welcome to the C4C community. Thank you for your interest in the Coaches for Community (C4C) programme.

Main focus for the 2017:

  1. To build up a network of coaches who are both professional and compassionate towards the needs of our community.
  2. To create platforms to acknowledge and recognise C4C coaches through events and social media.


Our "Coaches for Community" (C4C) initiative is to serve the larger community as coaches and in turn engage ICF members by providing them with opportunities to serve the community. We have worked with a variety of non-profit organisations and charities. We aim to partner with the organisations we serve to design a program that meets the needs of their stakeholders that they are serving.

Characteristics and criteria of a C4C Coach:

  • Being open and willing to work with the coachee and the non – profit organisation, respecting their differences and constraints.
  • Be able to commit to the project from start till end, especially those group sessions that are mandatory to attend for project brief/orientation.
  • Being helpful to the coachee and their organisation. Many of the coachees aren’t familiar with the coaching process and framework and thus they may not know what to expect out of this project.
  • Be open to change of schedules. Have an understanding and discussion with the coachee on how to work around such situations where needed. Be creative and understanding.
  • A current member of ICF, with an updated coach profile page and a ready CV for the non – profit organisation to refer to.

INSIGHT Leadership Programme

10 coaches

ICF is partnering with Agency for Integrated Care (AIC) to support their INSIGHT Leadership programme 2017. AIC was incorporated in 2009 and its key roles include supporting the growth and development of the Primary Care and Community Care/Intermediate and Long Term Care (ILTC) sectors and gearing up the healthcare system to cope with the increasing needs of a rapid ageing population.

The Community Care provide services to persons who need further care and treatment after being discharged from a hospital as well as community-dwelling seniors who may be frail and need supervision or assistance with their activities of daily living. Many of these providers are non-profit, faith-based, voluntary welfare organisations. The service providers include Community Hospitals, Nursing Homes, Home or Centre-base providers.

The INSIGHT leadership programme is part of AIC’s initiative to develop the leadership capability for this sector. It is a highly customised programme, designed to meet the unique needs of leaders in the sector. It consists of three modules. The first focuses on personal mastery, the second helps ILTC sector leaders gain better insight and understanding of the current and evolving issues of the sector and the final module provides tools to help leaders lead with vision and drive change in their respective organisations.

AIC would like to provide the opportunity for these leaders to benefit from having the guidance of an executive coach. And this will provide them with a more holistic leadership programme.

AIC would like to invite you to be part of the leadership journey of the INSIGHT participants as their executive coaches.
