What is Coaching?


  • Career Transition

  • Personal and/or Professional Roadblocks

Coaches come from all walks of life. Whether you’re in the corporate or education sectors, consulting, communications, law, or healthcare, Coaching is where your life experience, business expertise, and people skills intersect and produce meaningful, measurable results.

“I know I could be good at this and I’m convinced I will be a great coach one day. But how do I get there from where I am now?”

You learn by experience! The best training ground is actual coaching in real world situations. You can immediately apply your newfound knowledge directly with real clients. Coach Training Alliance programs are designed to put your new skills in context, try them out, and make them relative to your previous experience

If you wait to start coaching until you have mastered it, you’ll never begin. That is, after all, why they call it a practice.  Your interest in investigating coaching is significant indicator that you have the skills and passion to build a great coaching business, why not start today?

Knowledge is potential power.  Actual power comes from integrating knowledge into practice.

Coach Training Alliance gives you the experience in learning that puts these skills into action.  Our programs are tailored to your expertise, so you feel challenged and accomplished after every class.  More importantly, you will learn by doing not just watching a webinar or reading a book.

You want training that answers the following questions:

  1. What skills do I need and how do I develop them?
  2. How do I establish my business and get clients?
  3. How do I set up a coaching relationship with my client?
  4. What happens in coaching sessions?
  5. How do I manage my clients?

Good training doesn’t need to be expensive or take years to complete. Our programs combine:

  1. Quality curriculum and resources you can read and discuss in class.
  2. Practical information on coaching skills, marketing and being an entrepreneur.
  3. A community of coaches where you can share ideas, wins, and challenges.
  4. A safe environment where you can coach and get valuable feedback about your coaching.

Choose your coach training based on the program offerings, your instinct, and your personal experience with the course orientation and your communication with the instructors of the training organization. The program should:

  1. Provide a structure with an easy to follow learning sequence.
  2. Place you in a learning environment with other coaches and mentors.
  3. Facilitate and support client acquisition and income generation.
  4. Immerse you in real world training that is practical, not theoretical.

Coach Training Alliance’s Certified Coach Program explores all these fundamental blocks of a successful coaching program.

Certification is not required in order to begin coaching clients for a fee. Good training, however, will show you multiple ways of engaging people in positive experiences that show you at your best. What prospects and clients care about most is what you can do for them? As the coaching industry has grown, matured and become more mainstream, certification becomes more often required by the clients.

Some training organizations and associations offer their own certifications. Each vary in terms of time, fees, and examinations required.

For some programs it can take years and a significant investment to get all the pieces in place to become a certified coach. But most importantly, you need to be sure coaching is the right fit for you without spending an excessive amount of time or money.

Our Certified Coach Program is the shortest in duration and requires the smallest investment meanwhile providing comprehensive coach training from renowned, certified coaches.
