Reasons Certification Matters

When you complete a professional business coach certification program, you’ll understand the powerful coaching fundamentals that are necessary to help your clients maximize their results. You’ll also understand the biggest mistakes that untrained business coaches make and why they make them.

 

Business coaching is an art and a science. There are fundamentals and competencies that must be adhered to to provide high-level coaching to your clients.

Your certification provides credibility to your prospective clients, but even more importantly, it provides you the skills necessary to be an outstanding business coach.

 



Certification is Only The Beginning!

What Our Certified Business Coaches Have to Say

 

We asked our member business coaches what they thought about the Professional Business Coaches Alliance (PBCA) and we got the following feedback on our certification program, business coach trainers, annual conferences and the overall alliance. Want to hear more? If you are interested in learning more about the PBCA we can connect you with some of our Business Coaches and let you talk with them directly!

“The initial training with the PBCA was great, but it’s the ongoing discussions, training and interaction with business coaches from all over North America that really make it impactful. Couple that with a framework and a set of tools that gets better every year and you have an amazing value that really powers my business coaching practice.”
