Episode 206: 3 Reasons You Shouldn’t Get A Coaching Certification

In this episode I’m sharing 3 reasons why you shouldn’t get a coaching certification. Whether you’re an aspiring coach or you’ve already gotten started, and you’re considering investing in a formal coaching certification, I want to share 3 reasons why this might not be the best option for you – at least at this stage of your coaching journey.

I’m definitely not against certification, education or training but I don’t want you to go and get a certification purely because you think it’ll make you feel more confident or that your clients will take you seriously or because it’s the only way to improve your coaching skills. Tune in to learn 3 reasons why you shouldn’t get a coaching certification… at least, not yet.

In This Episode You’ll Learn:

  • Why a coaching certification will actually make you less confident than you are now
  • Whether clients will take you more seriously if you have a certification
  • If it’s irresponsible to become a coach without a coaching certification
  • How I became a coach
  • Tools and resources to improve your coaching skills without getting certified
