International Institute of Project Coaching

Welcome to the International Institute of Project Coaching.

We support a global community of professional and like-minded project coaches and consultants.  Together, we are building the project coaching profession and cultivating best practice in project management, program management, portfolio management, governance, business analysis and organizational change management.

While the IIPC refers specifically to “coaching” in its designation, we espouse the use of both coaching and mentoring in the project sphere.

Why Project Coaching?

The world over, more and more organizations are realizing the benefits of project coaching.  These benefits are threefold:

  • For the organization development of a culture of project success, capacity,
  • For the team project success,
  • For the coachee development of individual’s skills and knowledge, support

Through our Members and Certified Project Coaches we know that:

  • Coaching teaches and reinforces good disciplined project process
  • Coaching builds soft leadership skills
  • Coaching results in the development of trust between the coach and coachee
  • Coaching influences and supports the coachee to achieve more than they believe they are capable of achieving
  • Through coaching, organizations see incremental growth in the coachee, their team and the organization
“My current project is large, complex and abstract, and there was no
precedent to learn from within my organisation for this type of project.
Project coaching really helped me to define a logical project life cycle
and establish a methodology for managing the project.”
Dr. Lesley Whitehurst
