Sowing Seeds of Coaching Excellence 

The IFCE was founded by Alexis Goggans, PCC & Christian Hartley, PCC in 2020 with one mission- to create diverse cohorts of competent and confident coaches who become leaders in the coaching profession. Since 2017, Christian & Alexis have provided life, leadership, and executive coaching to leaders, organizations, and agents for social good. Together they have more than 12 years of formal experience deepening their study of coaching while running successful coaching businesses. We are excited to share these experiences with the next generation of leaders answering the call to coach.
