ICMA Coaching Program

WCMA Members have complimentary access to the ICMA Coaching Program.

1-1 Coaching

As a WCMA member, you have free access to ICMA’s Coaching program. Coaches can help you chart a path in local government, find information you need, and guide you to the answers that are right for you to difficult career questions. Coaching offers value for people at any stage in their careers by providing coachees with the opportunity to see their situation and opportunities from a fresh perspective.

Coaching sessions can take on many forms. Some are casual, informal networking and check-ins. Other pairs set up a more formal relationship and continue over time. You also may choose to get perspectives from more than one coach. For more details, see the ABCs of 1-1 Coaching.
