BECOME A COACH
Coaching is evolving every day, creating new opportunities for professionals who wish to pursue a different career path. If you are passionate about supporting others in finding their own solutions and are ready to overcome new challenges, a career as a professional coach might be a viable option.
Here is what you need to know to become a qualified professional coach:
1. Before you invest in training to be a coach, ask yourself: Am I passionate about helping clients pursue their own solutions? Do I have the skills and knowledge to start coaching? What else do I have to offer?
2. Being trained to become a coach will not only give you credibility in the industry but will help build your professional network. So, look for coach certifications that are accredited. With the accredited coach certification, you demonstrate your knowledge, skill, and commitment to high ethical and professional standards.
3. Being certified gives you credibility and a competitive edge in the industry and helps you build a professional network.
