Tracy Sinclair, MCC

Tracy Sinclair is a Master Certified Coach (MCC) with the International Coaching Federation (ICF), and is a specialist in the field of coaching and who is dedicated to the development of the coaching profession and the coaching community. In recognition of her efforts, she was named as one of the Leading Global Coaches winners of the Thinkers50 Marshall Goldsmith Coaching Awards of 2019 and 2021 and was a finalist for the Thinkers50 Coaching and Mentoring Award in 2021. She is also a member of the Marshall Goldsmith 100Coaches.

Her work encompasses coaching, teaching, mentoring, supervising, assessing and consulting in service of utilising coaching as a resource for human development. She has volunteered for the International Coaching Federation (ICF) since 2012 holding several Global, EMEA and UK leadership positions on Boards, Committees and Task Forces. She is a published author and co-authored Becoming a Coach: The Essential ICF Guide, published in 2020, which provides a comprehensive guide to coaching for coaches at all levels of skill and experience, the psychology that underpins coaching and the updated ICF Core Competency Model. Tracy also specialises in working with organisations to support the development of coaching culture and regularly speaks on many coaching and leadership-related matters for audiences around the world.

She is passionate about exploring and understanding the optimal human condition and loves to work with organisations and individuals who want to be at their best and reach their fullest potential. She is also deeply committed to exploring how coaching can be utilised as a positive force for social change and progress and, in 2020, she founded Coaching with Conscience which specialises in offering high quality coaching and coaching related services in support of positive social impact. Her two key areas of focus in this work are offering coaching and the development of coaching skills for young people and leaders (18-25-years old) and utilising coaching as an effective vehicle to support wellbeing and be a proactive intervention to help avoid mental health challenges. She collaborates with the UK’s leading mental health charity, MIND, to bring coaching services to individuals who support people with mental health challenges in the community.

Tracy initially began her work in the corporate sector after spending six years in Spain as a translator post-university. On her return to the UK, she developed a highly successful career in International Operations and Project Management and Quality Consultancy. Tracy held senior leadership positions within EMEA Operations for Bank of America, International Operations for Lloyds Register Quality Assurance and Quality Consultancy for American Express, EMEA.

Since 1997, Tracy has worked within the field of leadership development and has worked with clients across a broad range of industry sectors including Goldman Sachs, Greene King, BMW, Amnesty International, Nokia, Fuji Bank, Legal & General, BP, Ford, GSK, ABN AMRO, Standard Chartered, Unilever.

She currently sits on various UK, EMEA and Global ICF working groups to promote and enhance professional coaching.

She was the President of the UK ICF from 2013-2014 and Immediate Past President in 2015. Tracy was an ICF Global Board Director from 2016 – 2021, serving as Treasurer in 2017, Global Chair in 2018, Immediate Past Global Chair in 2019 and Vice Chair and Director at Large on the International Coaching Federation Global Enterprise Board in 2021. She is the Co-Chair of the ICF’s Global Task Force on Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Justice.

She is also a trained Coaching Supervisor, Mentor Coach and an ICF Assessor.

Tracy’s clients describe her as “insightful, intuitive, professional, powerful and warm,” and she, herself, says: “I love to work with organisations, individuals and teams who want to be at their best and reach their fullest potential. Transformational positive change and learning is achieved through a conversation that results in you thinking, feeling and acting differently. I will have that conversation with you!”
