About one-to-one coaching:

Whether you are a rising professional or seasoned manager, individuals at any stage of their career can benefit from coaching. Seek career guidance, ask project advice, and gain new perspectives by reaching out to ICMA coaches ready and eager to help.

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. 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 can also choose to get perspectives from more than one coach. For more details, see the ABCs of 1-1 Coaching in the Coaching Resources section.
