LEXINGTON, Ky., June 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Janez Hudovernik is a runner, an Executive Coach and a father of six. He is also the only coach in Slovenia to hold an International Coach Federation (ICF) Credential.
Hudovernik, an ICF Associate Certified Coach, shares the story of his coaching journey in the second video in ICF's Credential Legacy series. The video is posted on ICF's Credential Legacy microsite at ICFCredentialLegacy.com and on YouTube.
In the video Hudovernik shares his belief that "coaching is the leadership style of the future." He also welcomes viewers into his home and describes how coach training and the pursuit of an ICF Credential have changed his approach to parenting. "I would recommend that any parent become a coach," he says.
"By earning an ICF Credential, coaches like Janez demonstrate their quality and integrity," said ICF Executive Director and CEO Magdalena Mook. "In a marketplace where the term 'coach' is used rather freely, ICF Credential-holders exemplify the skills and experience of a professional. An ICF Credential is a clear signal for clients to expect quality service and excellence."
The video series is the latest component of ICF's ongoing Credential Legacy Campaign, which spotlights testimonials and industry research illustrating the numerous personal and professional benefits associated with the pursuit and achievement of an ICF Credential. The first video, featuring ICF Professional Certified Coach Julia Mattern (USA), premiered in March 2014. ICF will premiere additional videos that tell the diverse stories of ICF Credential-holders from around the world throughout 2014.

ICF is dedicated to advancing the coaching profession by setting high ethical standards, providing independent certification and building a worldwide network of credentialed coaches.
