Sponsorship levels based on your organizational needs

An organizational membership is called a sponsorship of the Institute of Coaching. The sponsorship program is a purchase of multiple Institute of Coaching memberships for an organization’s constituents. An organization is enabled to register a specified number of Institute of Coaching memberships at fair market value for individuals identified by the organization, which includes volume discounts that recognize economies of scale.


The organizational sponsorship is offered in tiers based on the number of memberships and services provided. As with individual memberships, sponsorship fees reflect the fair market value of the services and resources made available to members and so are not tax-deductible as charitable donations.The sponsorship tier level is calculated based on the total sum of the number and price of sponsored members at each level (affiliate or fellow) that a sponsor selected to include in their sponsorship package and the total price of the additional sponsorship services they selected for the annual sponsorship term.

Custom Membership Options

Select the number of individuals you would like included in your sponsorship and their membership level. You can choose between two membership options (affiliate or fellow) for each individual. You can also choose specific tailored organizational benefits that best support your organization. Your sponsorship tier level will be calculated based on the total number of members and services selected.

We always have profound respect for the presence of IOC and its contribution toward raising the credibility of coaching. To us as a company, we treasure various co- learning opportunities created by the IOC, in which we exchange wisdom with various researchers and practitioners of coaching and organizational development. With our sponsorship of the IOC, we believe that we can continuously contribute to the development of the coaching industry and work together with these important stakeholders to build assets for this industry.

Wataru Kurimoto, Director and Executive Coach, MCC, Coach A

As a practitioner and not an academician the IOC has been invaluable. The overarching purpose of bringing together the science of coaching to the art and skill of coaching has been invaluable to our entire organization. Rubbing elbows, as it were, with the kind of people that the IOC attracts has added a dimension and depth to our work that I didn’t know was there. Anyone serious about coaching as a vocation should look to join this amazing and thoughtful group.

 Steven Scanlon, CEO, Rewire

First, I learned from the latest research on coaching to stay critical towards my own biases as a coach and to notice the dogmas that are holding us back as coaches. Second, I got inspired by top executive Coaches such as Carol Kauffman and David Noble who shared their perspectives on how to help clients grow their leadership. I started using their framework and approach. Third, the latest research on Coaching Effectiveness in Healthcare and within other sectors broadened my awareness of what is really helping clients to cope with mental health issues.
