Making it as a Coach

Summer is in full swing and we hope you are taking the time to enjoy your favorite pastimes. For many, summer is a time to catch up on reading, reflect on the first half of the year and make plans for how to finish out the year strong. If your reflections and plans involve becoming a coach or making sure you are successful as a coach, this newsletter is written for you.



Almost daily we receive inquiries from people who are interested in becoming a coach but have many questions and at least a little trepidation. Questions we frequently get asked include;


  • What does it take to become certified?
  • How long will it take?
  • What training and education programs are needed?
  • What are the keys to making it as a successful coach?


Other inquirers have started a coaching business and are looking for tools to help them strengthen their skills and add to their tool kit. If you are thinking of becoming a coach or already one and looking for tips, tools and techniques to help you succeed, we’ve created a new webinar just for you.



In this free webinar we will discuss what it takes to become a successful coach. We bring our years of experience in coaching to discuss the formal requirements, education and training needed, as well as the soft skills, traits and attributes that are common among successful coaches. We’ll also discuss challenges and pitfalls that tend to keep coaches from reaching their full potential and how to avoid these.

  • Join our next FREE Webinar on the topic of Making it as a Coach, Monday, July 25 @ 11 a.m. Pacific. We’ll walk you through what it really takes to make it as a coach. We'll cover the formal education and training requirements and then take it a step further. We’ll dive deeper into soft skills, traits and attributes of successful coaches. You'll leave with a clear understanding of what it takes to make it as a coach, how to strengthen your coaching skills and if coaching is right for you. Be sure to join us. Click here to register.
