Nowadays everyone can call themselves ‘coach’. Coach is not a protected profession. If you go to the doctor, you know what you can expect in terms of quality. Unfortunately, this is not the case with coaches.
How do you know that you make a good choice? In addition to a good rapport, you can pay attention to the education someone has followed and the quality labels you see on a website.
Unfortunately, nowadays there is a proliferation of quality labels and that is why I wanted to follow a course that is internationally high regarded and guarantees quality within the professional coaching world.
I joined the Co-Active Training Institute and got certified as a Professional Co-Active Coach (CPCC). I’m also a licensed Firework Career Coach.
Excuse me for the following boring piece of text, but I would like to share it with you.
Co-Active Coaching is the largest personal (so not online) coaching training programme in the world. It is considered to be the most rigorous program available for professional coaching development, given the many training and practice hours.
Both the Co-Active Coach training and the Firework Career Coach program are accredited by the International Coaching Federation. This international organization focuses on promoting the quality of the coaching profession by setting high standards, offering independent certification and building a worldwide network of trained coaching professionals.
