Coaching is a partnership with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process to inspire them to maximize their personal and professional potential. Clients are encouraged to self-discover and set action goals to lead to a more desirable future.
Coaching is one of the fastest growing professions in the world today. While one does not take a board exam, nor is there state licensing or educational prerequisites – you may find it beneficial to become ICF credentialed to be successful. Credentialing demonstrates that you have the training and core competencies to be a coach and are affiliated with an organization that provides on-going learning and are a member of a community of best practices.
ICF is the gold standard of coaching throughout the world with membership exceeding 35,000 in 139 countries.
Becoming a Certified Professional Coach means you're an invaluable partner for a business, individual, or team as you support and guide them through their challenges using proven and specific techniques that you learn through the Coach Certification Training Academy training process.
Coaching has become very popular because it works! Coaches support their clients to self-discover and own their goals and outcomes. We deliver this service in a safe environment that is free from judgement, shame, or blame.

Earning a coaching certification provides an enhancement to your experience – and your resume. Many executives and leaders become certified coaches to develop their communication skills and emotional self-discipline to better lead and to more effectively manage their teams and the performance and growth of their organizations.
