Culture within the association is characterized by the exchange of knowledge and know-how, creativity and intense dialogues.

It is the objective of the German Federal Association of Business Coaching (DBVC) to professionalize the field of executive coaching and to promote and develop executive coaching in practice, research and teaching and in further education.


Our Approach

With the help of our “four-pillar-concept” we bring together all relevant representatives of the executive coaching market on one single platform:

The “four-pillar-concept” is the key element of our efforts to improve quality within executive coaching. To ensure that this concept is implemented in a credible way, the founding members made the decision to create a new organisation.
