How to Become a Credentialed Coach in 6 Months

What would your life look like if six months from now you had a recognized coaching credential and a coaching practice started, maybe even a client or two?  In the next few minutes, I’m going to show you how to accomplish exactly that. 

I’ll share with you the three key things you need to be up and running successfully in six months.  I’m Kevin Glenn, founder of Sapphire Coaches. I spent over three decades in the corporate world as a manager and senior executive. 

Sapphire Coaches is accredited by the International Coaching Federation and our team has helped hundreds of coaches get credentialed.  So let’s jump in and talk about what you need to have in the next six months.  #1 is training. 

You need a proven coaching model or framework that allows you to put your knowledge and life experience to work.  It has to be repeatable and deliver consistent and tangible results to your clients. 

This is about not winging it anymore.  The second important thing to consider is having a credential that’s recognized worldwide. 

The International Coaching Federation, also known as the ICF, is the world’s largest credentialing agency for coaches.  There are more than 30,000 active ICF coaches right now.  Having an ICF credential gives you instant credibility as a coach.

Finally, you need a plan to get clients. That can be daunting, especially for new coaches. But still, a great coach with a recognized credential and no clients kind of misses the mark. 

So to sum it up, if six months from now you want to be up and running as a professional coach, you need excellent training, you need a credential, and you need a way to get clients.  If the coaching conversation today has piqued your interest, take a few minutes and join the Sapphire Coaches team in a live webinar designed to get your questions answered. 

In the webinar we’ll cover how to choose the best coaching style for you, how to guarantee you get results for your clients, and how to win your first 10 clients as a new coach.  Just click the button and submit your details to register. 

I look forward to seeing you on the webinar
