In 2008 coaches, organisations, professional bodies, coaching clients and training groups from five continents came together over a period of a year to discuss the future of coaching with more than 200 individuals taking part in conversations.
Of these 61 agreed to spend five days in open dialogue in Dublin to explore the future the outcome of which was the Dublin Declaration.
This set out core tasks for the field and called on all concerned with coaching to take forward the work. This call was taken up across the globe with any initiatives completed but many still outstanding
The Declaration still provides a clarion call to us all to come together for the good of our clients, the field and society.
The declaration can be read below:
