Professional Career Coach

Training and Certification

 

Turn The Career Conversation

You’re Already Having

Into A Meaningful,

Rewarding Coaching Business

What if you were given a set of frameworks, proven by thousands of people already, to take the same types of conversations you’re already having—those energizing moments where you get to help others change their lives and careers—and use those frameworks to:

Have the tools and confidence to help more people – We’ve created the world’s first and ONLY Career Coaching training and certification that guarantees you will leave with your FIRST client. We give you everything you need to go forth and continue finding the types of people you want to work with so you can make an even greater impact.

Be your client’s career transformation hero, no matter what situation they’re in – We can show you how to help a wide variety of people, no matter what stage of their career they’re in, and become more efficient and effective as a coach. Plus, instead of putting all the pressure on yourself to give them the right answers, we’ll show you how to help your clients uncover the answers they already have hidden inside them.

Craft a lifestyle that perhaps you’ve only dreamed of…until now – Imagine being able to call your own shots and unlock new levels of freedom, all while doing the type of work you love. I personally work from a quiet local coffee shop 4 times a week and take my family to another country for a month each year. What does freedom look like for you? We want to help make that your new reality!

 

The reality is, without learning what modern coaching methods actually work and without a streamlined approach for consistently delivering results to your clients and/or get NEW clients…there’s a whole lot of trial and error to work through.

But doing so can be more straightforward and happen a lot faster than you may think! Here’s what happened for other people that found us and decided to put our Professional Career Coaching training and certification into practice:

From Zero Clients To An Entirely New Level Of Income And Freedom

We helped Olivia get her very first clients, and then even more over the six months we worked with her!

From Zero Clients and $0 Coaching To Achieving Her $3,000 Goal Before Class Was Even Over

Mimi’s initial goal was to make $3,000 from her coaching. By following our process, she was able to achieve that before 90 days were even up!

She went from ZERO clients to creating her coaching offer, getting clear on who she wanted to help serve, and learned how to close sales in a “non-salesy” way she felt good about.

“It’s a little bit magical…”

Karen Senger, reflecting on her overall experience:

“The training really gives you the skills and the tools and the actual practicing. It puts it all together and makes it happen and you start to really see how you can blend all of these different things together to help people to achieve their goals. And it’s, it’s kind of a little bit magical. The way it works, it’s definitely an art and a science.”

The #1 Thing Missing From Today’s Coaching Training And Certifications

 

Whether you’re an aspiring career coach or already a career coach wanting to grow a successful business, there’s one problem I see often that a lot of people we end up working with were previously frustrated by as well.

Maybe you’ve experienced it, too:

You go full Alice In Wonderland and slip deep down the rabbit hole of information on all things career coaching.

You want to find out what it takes to go from just giving out advice pro bono—as great as it feels to do so—to having clients who happily pay you for your expertise.

However, something weird keeps happening as you click through each of your search results:

Most of the sites look like they were made in the late 90’s. What gives?

Yet you don’t let this stop you and you keep searching because you just can’t shake the thrill, the joy, the reward of helping others see the best in themselves…only to discover one other glaring issue:

Those trainings and certifications leave you hanging, looking over the edge of a cliff.

You get to learn about being a coach but then what?

What about the business side? What about building a coaching practice? What about marketing and attracting the clients that you’re most excited to work with.

Also why do most certifications not have anything to do with Career Coaching?

An even more interesting question to ask…

What Do The Most Successful Coaches

Have In Common?

Hint: It Has Nothing To Do With Being All Over Social Media, Going Back To School, Or Taking The Full-Time Leap Of Faith!

 

All that stuff? Not necessary. In fact, a lot of that can backfire if you go about it the wrong way!

So the question that everyone asks us still remains:

“How do you make sure I’m successful as a career coach? Or at building a business as a career coach, if I choose to?”

As a starting point, it’s important to remember the people who are most successful at becoming better coaches and business owners are those who ask themselves how they can help others first.

 

How I Unexpectedly Got My First Career Coaching Client Ever

 

Focusing on others is first is exactly how I got my very first paid career coaching client.

It happened through an unpaid local speaking engagement. I spoke for 15 minutes about careers, then a week later met with my very first client and collected $600.

I didn’t know that I was going to get a client. I gave first, regardless of the outcome.

You likely already focus on helping others pro bono, expecting nothing in return.

Now, we can give you all the resources and frameworks you could ever need to take those same kinds of conversations you’re already having and have people eager to come to you and invest in your expertise and the value you provide them.

Anyway, once you’ve got who you’re going to help (and how) in mind, successful coaches will tell you it’s then a matter of:

Learning from other people that have already been there. Get help so that you can figure out what small but consistent habits and tasks make up the top 5% of what you should be focused on to reach your next milestone in as little time, and with as little frustration as possible.

Even if you don’t want our help, I urge you to get help from people that have done this before. You don’t want to spend 10 years creating, developing and refining a process that gives you the confidence to coach clients through every step they need to make sure they come out the other side with a career that makes them happy!

Taking the time to set yourself up for success for the long run. We have all of our coaches create what we call a “Plan for inevitable success” identifying what they will do in advance when things go wrong (and how they will celebrate when they go right). Who will you call to support you? Who will tell you to get back on the horse? Who will take you to dinner when you get your first client?

Creating an unshakeable foundation. For some people, creating a solid foundation might mean changing jobs to something more flexible or higher paying as you’re pursuing a career coaching business.

For others, this might be having some very open and honest conversations with their partner to communicate you’d love their help and support as you figure out exactly what the journey looks like.

Spending the time and effort to get a few things right like a job that helps you get where you want to go or solidifying support from your family can make everything else possible.

3 Of The Biggest Roadblocks

You’ll Encounter Along The Way

Obviously any journey toward greatness can’t ALL be rainbows, unicorns, and butterflies…

Anytime we push ourselves, we’re bound to hit some roadblocks that test and teach us. That’s why even the world’s most elite high-achievers have coaches.

Frankly, the coaches they have probably even have their OWN coaches too, right?

The reason why is simple:

No matter how many coaching moments you’ve successfully navigated over the years—whether those were casual conversations or paid for by someone…

No matter what you’ve managed to achieve in the past…

…there are several different types of roadblocks that can show up to throw you off your game and ruin what could—and probably would—have been an otherwise meaningful and rewarding journey.

And in those moments, it’s critical to have someone (or an entire cohort!) in your corner to help you practice, stay motivated, and hold you accountable.

Anyway, you’ve probably encountered one or more of these roadblocks over the years:

 

Coaching Roadblock #1 – Standing Out

 

It can be easy to feel overwhelmed or doubt yourself when it comes to figuring out how you’re going to ever know WHO you want to notice what you have to offer and HOW you’re going to stand out enough to attract them.

Nobody wants to just blend in with every other coach, right?

If you encounter this roadblock and begin to struggle with standing out, you may lead yourself to believe the same outdated or outright wrong myths so many coaches fall victim to—sometimes before they ever give themselves a chance to start:

  • Thinking you can only stand out if you’re on social media (wrong)…
  • Wondering how on earth you can thrive amongst other, more “established” coaches…
  • Believing you have to limit yourself to one niche, one offer…

Once you break through this roadblock, you’ll see for yourself just how easy it can be!

 

Coaching Roadblock #2 – Imposter Syndrome

 

Imposter syndrome is quite common, even among high achievers. It turns you into a master of self-deception. In other words, imposter syndrome influences your thinking in a way that blinds you from your own greatness and past achievements, and steers you far away from ever taking action toward your goals.

You become your own biggest enemy, allowing yourself to plant little seeds of doubt in your brain that manifest into thoughts like:

  • “What if I can’t actually help the people that trusted me to do so?”
  • “Is the stuff I’ve been telling people really all that helpful?”
  • “Am I actually worth what I just asked for?”
  • “Who am I to think I have any kind of real credibility to charge for this?”
  • We help you conquer this roadblock, too, so you can feel confident in being able to help your clients regardless of what stage they’re at, and help you realize exactly why you ARE worth what you’re ready to charge for your expertise!

 

Coaching Roadblock #3 – Time

 

Allow me to put a BIG, bad myth to rest right here.

When it comes to finding the time to improve your skills as a career coach, finding people to work with, or building a business around doing so if you choose to…you do NOT have to take the full-time leap of faith.

You also don’t have to sacrifice precious time or resources going back to school, in order to become an effective and legitimate career coach.

Our team will show you why it’s not about the TIME you spend coaching.

It’s about the VALUE you can deliver.

Because of this, you can often spend less time coaching each client and still be just as effective.

And that means even if you only want to start part-time, you can.

We will hand you every single process and proven framework we’ve used and relentlessly refined, since 2013, to grow Happen To Your Career to where we are today.

Instead of burning the candle at both ends trying to make progress (or worse: risk giving up entirely), using what we share with you will enable you to:

  • Keep your schedule chaos-free.
  • Streamline all aspects of your coaching.
  • And scale to new levels of impact, income, and freedom on your time…

Best of all, you’ve got a whole lot of people in your corner ready to help you!

What If You Were Surrounded By Your Own Cohort Of Career Coaches Who Are Learning And Leveling Up With You?

Becoming part of a strong cohort of experienced AND aspiring career coaches and business owners alike is without a doubt one of the things the people we work with love most about our coaching programs.

One of our past students, Jennifer Spoelma, gave a perfect example of the same type of feedback we get from a lot of the other people who work with us.

Before coming to us, Jennifer was just about ready to leave her full-time job and jump into running her own business as a career coach.

She had done a lot of her own research and even worked with a handful of clients on a pro bono basis, but to feel fully confident, she wanted the support and resources she knew she was missing.

Some of her thoughts after finishing the Professional Career Coaching training:

“Everything that I needed to walk my clients through…I was able to get through this training.”

“What I’ve gotten from the professional career coach training is, first of all a network of other career coaches and business owners. I think that was really valuable for me to be able to learn from people who had successfully been running career coach, career coaching businesses, but also to have a cohort of other students and Business Builders who are in the same stage of starting off with me. I valued those connections and insights a lot. And the other thing that I really gained and found to be really powerful about my experience was the access to resources and processes. So basically everything that I needed in order to walk my clients through, I was able to get through participating in this coach training and not just having the resources but also knowing how you use them and getting into practice.” – Jennifer Spoelma

The Secret To Going From “Pretty Good” To Confident, World-Class Professional Career Coach

Having a close-knit cohort of people you can group up and practice with allows you to do what my friend Mark would call “getting your touches in”.

Mark is really, REALLY into soccer.

He coaches soccer.

He’s the President of the local soccer league.

He has a side business doing soccer training.

The guy lives and breathes soccer (or “football” for the rest of the world).

But what’s this got to do with you and career coaching?

Well, Mark once shared an insightful theory with me about how to work with kids to help them become remarkably better soccer players—something I’ve never forgotten and applies well here.

He points out that it’s NOT about how long those he coaches are at practice, or whether or not they have more expensive cleats, or even whether or not kids understand the “strategic” level of the game at an early age.

What DOES help them become much better much faster is?

Touching the ball more times.

If most of their soccer experience is spent getting ready to play, and then getting to the field, and then waiting on other people on the team for their turn line to do passing and kicking drills, then they only have 40-80 kicking opportunities in a practice.

Instead, what if practices were arranged so they can kick, pass, or dribble a soccer ball 400 times during that same time?

Or what if they spent less time traveling to practice and used that same time kicking the ball?

Mark says that when he sees the kids who are focused on continually “getting their touches in,” their skill grows more quickly than those that aren’t.

This means that if you can minimize the amount of time these up-and-coming soccer players spending “prepping to learn” and spend more time applying the learning, then they actually learn faster.

This is the difference between “knowing” how something works and actually “being able to confidently perform it.”

Learning how to become a highly effective career coach or learning how to build a successful coaching business work in much the same way.

And it’s why our highly-interactive way of helping you with career coaching works so well for everyone we work with.

We Will Show You Everything We Know About

Creating Your Own Meaningful Work and Freedom

By Helping Others Change Their Lives And Careers

I’m Scott Anthony Barlow, Founder and CEO of Happen to Your Career. I’ve been training coaches since 2005, and have worked as a coach in many roles since 2003.

I’ve helped thousands of people make successful career changes and hundreds of people start small businesses. I’ve created one of the world’s leading research backed career change methodologies.

And over the years, I’ve also personally worked one-on-one with over 200+ people, helping them achieve goals like:

> Getting their first customers…

> Reaching their first $10,000+ month…

> And catapulting countless coaching businesses to new heights, once we helped them get up and running…

You met some of them at the top of this page already. Here are a few other people we got to work with through our Professional Career Coaching Program:

Joining me on the team are several other equally accomplished coaches who together have several decades worth of experience working with people in a variety of roles and industries.

Everyone from janitors and CEOS to literal rocket scientists, and everything in between.

Our mission has become to change the way the world thinks about and does work.

I want people to be able to use their unique signature strengths when they’re contributing to others.

But while we’re great at helping those we get to work with, we’ve also recognized that Happen To Your Career can’t achieve our mission alone.

Because no matter how many people we earn the opportunity to help here, there will be many more around the world that still need guidance.

And that’s where YOU come in.

I recognized we need to empower more people—people like you who have a passion for helping others achieve their best lives and careers—to provide this help.

That’s exactly why we’ve created a training and certification to help you take what our company has learned over 15 years of working as a coach and helping coaches all over the world start their businesses, coaching practices and freelance work.

A few other things you might find interesting:

  • Over 25,000 people have been through our courses and coaching programs, successfully using these resources to empower themselves to stop settling, hone signature strengths, and start making an impact on the world…
  • We produce one of the best Career podcasts according to Forbes, LifeHacker, CNBC and over 100 other publications. In fact, we’ve officially reached the milestone of having over 1,000,000 downloads of our podcast episodes!
  • Finally, as part of our movement, we’ve developed and refined the world’s first and ONLY Professional Career Coaching training and certification program that also guarantees you will leave with your first paying client!

You Could Even Say I Wrote THE Book On How To Become A Career Coach!

This Program Is Not For You If:

  • If you’re not sure if career coaching is for you and you’re looking for a possible path to help “figure out” your life…
  • If you’re allergic to hard work or interacting and collaborating with your coaches and cohort of other career coaching students…
  • If you’re just looking for a way to make money instead of truly caring about helping people find meaningful work or helping them improve their lives and careers…

Although the coaching industry continues to experience explosive growth, frankly, there are a lot of broke or ‘wannabe’ coaches just looking for a way to make a quick buck and keep their financial ship from sinking.

If that’s you, or any of the other criteria above applies to you, then I’m sorry but this program is not a good fit.

However, if that’s NOT you, you’ll be happy to know you’re in good company.

Even when I personally decided I wanted to do more with becoming a career coach and help others do the same, I never did so out of desperation or for lack of knowing what to do next with my life.

I was still enjoying a long consecutive string of dream jobs. I simply wanted to do something more meaningful that took advantage of my strengths. And, well, here we are!

Together with our incredible team, I want to show you that it truly is possible for you to do the same, and empower you with every single tool and framework we personally use in our own business.

With that in mind…

This Program IS For You:

  • If you want the skills needed to be a successful career coach, as well as the confidence and proven frameworks to go out and make an impact on people’s lives and careers…
  • If you value being on the inside of a highly-interactive community of experienced and aspiring career coaches and business owners alike, ready to practice and grow with you…
  • If you’re ready to invest the effort it takes to be a successful career coach or business owner, experience more meaningful work, and create a new lifestyle that gives you greater levels of freedom and income…

…then our Professional Career Coaching training and certification program is ABSOLUTELY for you.

“I’ve Become Fascinated With Helping Others In Career and Life…”

“I would recommend the professional career coach training to anyone who wants a deep understanding of how to help people reach success in the ways that matter to them. I’ve become fascinated with helping others find happiness in career and life and PCC showed me how to help others achieve confidence and clarity in their lives.” – Allison Curbow

So if you’re still with me and you’re ready to get started helping others improve their careers and lives like Allison above did with the same PCC program, here are the two tracks available to you.

You Can Choose From Two Tracks That Give You Targeted Training & Extraordinary Results

 

In a nutshell:

Track 1: Coaching Mastery focuses on the technical mastery of helping clients as a career coach.

Track 2: Building A Thriving Coaching Business is specifically for those who want to take everything they’ve learned about career coaching so far and turn that knowledge into a thriving coaching business.

(More details on both of these tracks available down the page, in a moment…)

Once you’ve decided which track makes sense for you (we can help with this if you need), you’ll get to meet your new cohort of like-minded coaches who will be joining you once things get rolling.

You’ll also be assigned a mentor coach—someone from our team that’s highly experienced as a coach, knows the professional career coaching program super well, will hold you accountable, and offer any support you might need.

Then the fun begins!

Regardless of which track(s) you choose, both work the same way:

We believe it’s incredibly important to create hands on, real stakes training, so you can apply what you’ve learned.

We also know that it’s the practice and application of the knowledge you’ll gain that actually creates skills.

We do this through a highly-interactive combination of learning, training, practice, active application and collaboration!

Every other week, on Wednesday at Noon PST / 3pm EST, we will hold a 90-minute class over Zoom.

If you aren’t familiar with Zoom already, no sweat. It’s free and quick to download, and lets you collaborate with your coaches and fellow cohort members through voice and video.

The first half of each class, we will go over the most important things you have to learn for each current module you’re on.

The second half of the class, we work together in groups to apply what’s being learned.

As we’ve covered already, this is something previous students loved the most about this program:

Working together with your cohort, you begin to create an even stronger sense of community with other people just like you.

More important than that, it helps solidify everything you are learning.

That’s why on the off weeks where you don’t have your main classes, we have our 45-minute Professional Career Coaching labs where you can continue practicing the concepts you’re learning in class.

Make no mistake about it, though:

The whole process is fun, collaborative, and straightforward. But it’s not going to be easy!

Extra Credit: Career Coaching Certification!

Please know career coaching certification is a separate process that takes place after going through the training program, but it’s fully optional.

Why do we split apart the certification and training? A few reasons:

First, we recognize that not everyone cares about having our Professional Career Coach designation for their business or credentials and just want the skills, tools, proven frameworks, and knowledge to run their own practice.

Second, there are significant benefits to becoming certified that we want to make sure remain meaningful for those who’ve chosen to go this extra step—including:

  • Receive the Professional Certified Career Coach Seal to place on your website, LinkedIn or marketing documents.
  • Ability to use the PCC (Professional Career Coach) designation after your name. Example: Scott Anthony Barlow, SPHR, PCC
  • Eligible to be part of the Happen To Your Career Referral Network
  • Eligible to obtain a license to use Happen to Your Career program materials for your coaching.
  • Get a students only discount on HTYC events, Business Growth Coaching, and more

Third, we want to make sure that each coach can confidently meet our coaching standards that the training itself prepares you for.

Finally, in order to provide all of this at the highest level our students have come to expect, getting certified is an intense mentorship process that takes roughly 1-6 months depending on each student, and involves a lot of personal time, attention and practice with your coach.

It’s a big investment of our own time, as much as it is for those who join. And just as we will show you how to find and work with the kind of clients who fill you with joy and excitement because they are the right fit for what you offer…we want to make sure anyone who raises their hand to get certified is a good fit, too.

(This is why certification is not automatic or guaranteed…)

Rest assured, though: Either way, you will leave our Professional Career Coaching training empowered with everything you need to go out and produce amazing results for your clients and yourself.

What Happens After You’ve Gone Through

The Training and Certification?

Here’s what you can expect after you come out of the training and become certified as a PCC

  • You will know how to work with a large variety of people in nearly any industry to help them identify their own ideal career.
  • You will understand a process and a framework to lead any client through nearly any situation OR when to help them get additional resources
  • You will have everything you need to get your first clients or get a role with a company you want to work with.

Meet Michelle Robin

We helped Michelle land her biggest client at the time. Now she runs a full scale personal branding company where she lands 5K clients all the time!

Meet David Mariano

We helped David refine the coaching process and framework he was using and then to get his very first clients! We also helped him build out the initial marketing for his business and create his first pricing and packages.

Meet Kimberly Ramsawak

Kimberly launched her first ever services and course offering to obtain her first premium clients.

What Is The Investment Cost for the Training?

We’ve been meticulously researching other programs for years and have found that other certifications cost $2,000-10,000.

Then afterwards, you still have to go find a business coach or business training program that may cost anywhere from $2,500-$15,000.

This can quickly skyrocket your total investment to as much as $25,000+

That’s not even counting your time spent finding the right combination of programs and certifications.

Because to make matters worse, these programs aren’t specific to career coaching or career coaching businesses.

We’re committed to offering a disproportionate “Return on Investment” with our program, training and preparation for your future.

And we make sure you have everything you need inside one program to take control of your life and create your own career coaching practice.

Best of all you can choose just one track or enroll in both tracks.

Here’s The First Step To Take:

Once you click the link, you’ll be taken to a page where you can fill out the free application and schedule a call with our Director of Student Success.

“Do Or Do Not. There Is No Try.”

 

You Now Have A Very Exciting Journey Awaiting You And An Equally Important Decision To Make!

If you’ve come this far, I’m going to double-down on my guess that you know in your heart and mind already that helping people change their lives and careers is calling you.

The only question then is what getting to the point of feeling 10,000% confident you can help your clients—at any stage of their careers—will look like.

You could spend the next several years—easily a decade a more as we have—figuring it all out on your own and risk getting burnt out or giving up on something you’ve already discovered you’re amazing at.

Or there’s the path you already know is the smarter and more efficient way to Make It Happen:

Learning the same proven modern frameworks, tools, and skills our company and coaches have spent more than 15 years creating and refining. Resources that will save you countless years of guesswork and frustration, and empower you with the skills and confidence to address any situation thrown at you.

There is an entirely different life out there waiting for you. It can be fueled by a career or a thriving business where you get to help people create meaning in their own life and work.

As you’ve probably experienced through helping others by sharing your advice, it’s incredibly rewarding!

And it gives you the keys to lead the type of life desire and deserve. It gives you more autonomy and flexibility than you could hope for.

But at the end of the day, only you can make that decision for yourself!

Frequently Asked Questions

 

When does it begin?

The self paced version of Professional Career Coach Training – Coaching Mastery doesn’t have a specific timeline – Immediately after you register you will get access to the very first section of the program to get started. From there you decide when you want to begin and you set the pace. 

You can complete it anytime after enrollment. 

 

When does it end?

The training itself is set up in 7 high impact modules to maximize your coaching learning. It is set up so that you get access to each module every 2 weeks after you begin, however you can actually complete those at any pace that is right for you. 

After you complete the training, you may begin the certification process at any time (which involves demonstrating your skills and working one-on-one with a mentor coach). The certification process lasts about 1 – 6 months depending on how frequently you are coaching. 

 

How will the training take place? 

Self Paced: Every other week, training will take place via video conferencing software similar to Zoom, where you can be interactive with our group and the facilitator. In between trainings, you will complete a variety of work including reviewing materials (videos, readings and audio content), skillbuilding practice, collaboration with other members of the cohort, mentorship meetings, etc.

 

How long is the group training class?

Sessions are every other week and last 90 minutes apiece. This is long enough to go deep but still manageable on most schedules. We’ve found most people prefer this over meeting every week for an hour. 

 

How many people have you helped start businesses?

Through our brand Happen To Your Career we’ve had an impact on thousands, however Scott has worked directly and personally one-on-one with over 250 people to get their first customers, reach their first $10,000 month, or grow their business. 

 

What time do the group classes take place?

The program is self paced so there is no requirement to be at a certain class at a certain time. If you would prefer a live online class environment, we do have a version that runs twice a year. 

 

How much time should I anticipate spending each week?

The entire program is structured for between 5-7 hours of work and actions each week. That said, we find that as you enter Track 2 of the program (where it’s focused on your first customers and building your business) the more time you put in, the faster you will get results (from what we typically see). This is because at this stage the work is directly on your business or practice. 

Additionally, we see that what people put into it, they get out of it. 

Lastly, some areas are easier or more difficult depending on the person.  For example, anything that I have to do that involves writing takes me twice as long as the average human being. Expect those individual factors, but we’ve created the course with 5-7 hours per week in mind.

 

Is there an examination for the professional certification in addition to the aspect of membership?

Yes, the actual Professional Career Coach Certification itself (separate from the training) requires working with one of our  HTYC Coaches (to see you in action) so we can see you coach and understand you can “walk the walk.” Along with some other examinations, we want to ensure that you are well-prepared and versatile for the coaching world.   

 

What are the technical requirements for the course? 

You just need a computer (actually you could do the entire thing on your phone because it’s enabled for mobile but I wouldn’t recommend it)

 

Is there any advice on online marketing, website building, etc, or marketing templates including?

Yes! Part of Section 3 of the Program involves building your business (especially marketing & technology).  In the program, we focus on how can we deliver the most essential coaching practices to you and give you that information which you can access at any time. Think of a box filled with marketing, business, and website goodies of information that you can pull out and use anytime.

 

Is there any community building during the training program such a slack channel or facebook group? 

Of course! We think community building is essential to the course, and we’re planning on launching a Facebook group for all of our awesome students to hang out and chat.  

 

Why did you choose to create your own certifying body instead of partnering with the ICF or other coaching organizations?

Ultimately, one of the biggest reasons we chose to create our own certifying body and not go through ICF or other coaching organizations is because we have a distinct difference in beliefs when it comes to coaching fundamentals and what it takes to get results for ALL clients. One of the things we recognize is that what you really need to build success and create massive action for clients does not just come from  “traditional coaching” alone. No matter where in the world people are coming from or the profession or industry, we’ve seen it all and come back to the same fundamentals.  

There is core information and certain behaviors that some people don’t have as we are helping them make massive career changes, getting a promotion, etc. To get the results that our clients are looking for (at the speed they are looking for) requires a combination of coaching, consulting, strategy, and other aspects. We believe the best coaches can operate in these multiple roles and truly help people forward (and we have the data to back it up). 

We think the ICF is wonderful organization that has done (and will continue to do) amazing things for coaching.  However, if we want an even better coaching format, we have to move beyond what is “traditional coaching” and require a much higher level of what our coaches know.   

 

Are there any other hidden costs or expenses I would need to pay for? The short answer is “no” there is nothing else you must pay for from us. 

We will be providing a supplemental book list that allows you to dig deeper on specific topic areas that will benefit you. When you get to Stage 3 in business building, we will provide a list of recommended tools that make your life easier. Some are free, others are not None are required. Your spending is at your own discretion.

However, we do find that in order to reach many people, you need a website and en email provider.

Lastly, depending on the part of the world you live in, there may be certain costs associated with obtaining a license to do business (or other requirements to obtain a license).

 

What’s the final day to register? 

The final day to register for the self paced PCC Program is December 20, 2019 (end of day Eastern Standard Time)

 

What’s the schedule of the Program? 

The self-paced program is whenever you want to begin.
