Who is Coach U?

Founded in 1992, Coach U is the world's first coach training institute. Coach U has created programs that have allowed the communication skill of coaching to become something that "anyone can learn". Coach U has contributed to the development of coaching by training professional coaches at a time when there was no coaching profession except in the sporting world. Many of the most active coaches in the U.S.A. today are graduates of Coach U.

Thomas J. Leonard, Founder of Coach U, founded the International Coaching Federation (ICF) in 1995. The ICF, the largest governing body of coaching in the world, has established a global coach certification system and set the global standard for coaching through a variety of activities. The ICF has grown into a coaching organization with over 25,000 ICF certification holders and over 35,000 members. Coach U’s Training Programs were one of the first programs in the world to be accredited by the ICF for coach certification (as an Accredited Coach Training Program: ACTP).
