Atlanta, GA June 5, 2017 – Intercontinental Coaching Institute revealed today that its CEO, award-winning Gender Advocate, Author and Master Certified Coach, Dr. Shekina Farr Moore, was invited to, and officially became a member of, the distinguished Forbes Coaches Council.
The Forbes Coaches Council is an exclusive, invitation-only organization comprised of elite, successful, leading executive business coaches and career coaches. Members are hand-selected by the Council’s selection committee. Dr. Moore’s expertise will serve the council well as she leans on her impressive track record in education, gender advocacy and civic service experience coupled with her notable expertise spearheading the Intercontinental Coaching Institute. The company offers national training, certification and support for coaches and coach trainers.
“I am happy to join the Forbes community, along with other world-class Forbes Coaches Council members who are hand-selected, to become part of a curated network of successful peers. I am most looking forward to connecting, bilaterally, and providing new pathways for the women and coaching clients I serve,” said Dr. Moore.
The council members get access to a variety of exclusive benefits and resources, including the opportunity to submit thought leadership content and insight on industry-related topics for publishing on Forbes.com.
Dr. Moore’s contributions will be published monthly on the Forbes platform. The timing is concurrent with Dr. Moore’s recent launch of the Open Your Own Academy Program at Intercontinental Coaching Institute (www.traintocoach.com). There, coach students receive a comprehensive course training in opening and running their own dynamic coach training program with convenient study plans and investment options.
“I believe empowered people empower people. I cannot think of a better way to serve than to be both visible and available,” Dr. Moore shares. “Often women serve in the background. Because my life’s work focuses on the advancement of women and girls, I am proud to see the number of successful women, especially women of color, represented on this Forbes platform. All women have valuable contributions and they should be seen and heard. My hope is that my moves encourage another woman to maker her moves.”
