Why Become A Certified Coach?

Certified Coaches Federation™ Certified Coaches enjoy the following lifestyle and career benefits:

  • A greater sense of fulfillment and purpose in life - because you're making a difference.
  • Improved relationships - both at home and at work. Our Certified Coaches learn new ways to not only communicate your ideas but also to understand all modes of communication in a whole new way that is natural and easy to practice.
  • Positive self-esteem and as well as increased levels of self-confidence.
  • More life balance - namely financial, spiritual, physical and emotional.
  • Greater connection to the world and your life purpose.
  • Ability to overcome obstacles and setbacks.
  • Enjoy an abundant lifestyle while also making a positive contribution to the world.

Wisdom does not operate on a time or space continuum! Consider your own life for a minute: odds are if you reflect back over the times in your life when you grew the most and stretched to become more, those events happened in moments. Perhaps you can recall a certain book you read or experience you had that gave you a new perspective that you didn't have only moments before. In an instant, wisdom can change your life! The Certified Coach Practitioner™ Course has been called two days of deep insight and wisdom-oriented moments!

Furthermore, do your homework. You'll find programs that are more expensive than ours. You'll find programs that are more time-consuming. Some colleges are now even offering coaching courses that last for more than a year.

In the Certified Coach Practitioner™ online course, you'll learn how to go out and start helping people. You'll build a powerful foundation from which to launch your new career, but you'll never be "finished" learning. We continue to support your learning process through our Continuing Education tutorials: Building Your Business tutorials, which cover marketing, promotion and advertising, and Coaching Skills & Strategies tutorials, which cover the process of coaching, including defining your target market, how to get your first meeting off on the right foot every time, ways to build your brand, how to deal with difficult clients, keys to long-term coaching relationships as well as how to manage the typical challenges that make coaching such a worthwhile career choice!

Why Do People Hire A Coach?

Certified Life Coach

Life Coaches provide tools to help their clients live their lives to the fullest. Through the introduction of new perspectives and techniques, which reveal hidden potential and identify limiting beliefs that sabotage growth, effective Life Coaching creates an arena to build new and expanding, constructive beliefs.

Life Coaches support their clients to identify their strengths and weaknesses and then provide strategies for personal development based on their client's strengths. Through this process, Life Coaches can, AND DO, focus and guide their clients to create an individualized plan of action to turn their intentions into reality!

Life coaches help their clients identify good habits, which move their lives forward, and bad habits which hold them back. Moreover, it's the coach's responsibility to provide the necessary guidance and support to facilitate their client's objectives.

Life coaches aren't counselors or therapists; they are not usually qualified to diagnose or treat mental health matters. The Certified Life Coach’s primary role is to provide a strategy and support system for their clients to achieve their goals.

Many companies now offer the services of a Certified Life Coach to employees who may be laid off or who are transitioning to retirement. Many leading divorce attorneys pay for a one-hour consultation with a Certified Life Coach for clients who are experiencing the breakdown of a marriage. It's just good business to provide this kind of service.

Certified Executive Coach

Compared to Life Coaching, which targets individuals and is focused on personal development and personal goals, Executive Coaching is for professionals, executives or organizations who are seeking to achieve professional goals and optimize effectiveness. For Executive Coaching, the emphasis is on business expansion, productivity, and career development. A Certified Executive Coach also takes into consideration work and life balance concerns when working with professionals.

Our Executive Coach Certification Program allows executives and corporations to measure their return on investment, usually, within weeks!

I took this course for personal growth and to help me with engaging people in a business venture. It was not what I thought it would be. It surpassed my expectations in so many ways.

For one it incorporated concepts that I already believe in and practice and explains the science into the WHY and HOW the CCF coaching process works with people. I had an awesome experience role-playing and experiencing the tools provided in their Guide book that accompanies the course.

I also think it's affordable and once a graduate one has access to continued learning at a discount to become a master at this and create a business. I would highly recommend the course.
