The IRCM’s Future Direction Department works closely with the Industry Leaders and the Steering Committees.

The steering committees are industry advisory committees made up of high-level stakeholders, experts, and consumers who provide guidance on key issues specifically relating to the coaching and mentoring industry working closely with the International Regulator of Coaching and Mentoring, CIC (IRCM).  The steering committees support the future development of the coaching and mentoring industry; and works to ensure that the focus/actions of the IRCM remains as far as possible in the best interests of the complete industry.

The IRCM’s remit is to grow consumer confidence in the industry through an agreed Unified Code of Ethics and Standards; and the Unified Industry Core Competencies; and provide a clear direction for the industry.   Therefore the IRCM’s Steering Committees are an integral part of the Future Direction Department.
