Pasadena, CA - Over the last few decades, the coaching industry has come a long way growing in leaps and bounds and becoming more mainstream because of so many dedicated certified coaches that have made it such a widely recognized global phenomenon.
Christine Martin is a retired executive and leadership coach of Innovation Coaching, a former University Ethics Professor, and is currently an evaluator of coaches with the International Federation (ICF) the world’s largest organization of professionally trained coaches.
“Coaches are not therapists or advice givers, telling you what to do, instead they ask powerful questions so you can dig deep within yourself, shift your mindset, and do exceedingly well in life without anyone telling you how,” says Christine.
In the mid-90’s when coaching was just evolving. Christine was a University Ethics Professor and business consultant helping people set up successful companies. When by chance she attended a coaching conference and was offered a position with the ICF which she graciously accepted. Awestruck by how powerful coaching was, Christine became a member of their board of directors, opened up her own practice Innovation Coaching, and began traveling all over the world developing her skills while meeting amazing people. Over the years, she became very instrumental in setting ICF globally.
Today, retired from coaching, she continues her influential work as a coach evaluator for those desiring credentials ensuring that ICF continues producing the most quality individuals meeting the rigorous standards so all coaches adhere to the highest ethical principles.
With her caring, results oriented passionate approach Christine has made a powerful impact in coaching ready to make people champions.
