What is an international coach?

An international coach does not give advice, but rather creates an environment where clients feel heard, discover their true potential, find solutions to obstacles, and make meaningful change in their lives.

A coach certified by ICF works in a collaborative, professional relationship with clients and does not apply special techniques or tools (e.g., balance wheels, scaling, etc.)

Coaches sell their time although responsibility for desired results remains on the clients. Which allows the clients to achieve their goals, relying on their own strength.

What are the opportunities of a professional coach with ICF certification?

Certified coaches can help clients through BetterUP, a company that sells coaching services and is worth more than one billion dollars. All of this can be done remotely.

Become fully independent and be your own manager. Create a coaching practice as your main or additional source of income. Offer your services starting at $100 + per hour.

There are 1.3 billion English speakers around the world.
Endless opportunities to help others on many topics, from relationship challenges to building a business. Since coaches do not give advice, they do not need to be an expert in a particular field.
Everyone needs a coach. When everything goes well, people turn to coaching to maintain success and achieve new goals. When things don’t go so well, people want to make the right changes in their lives.

Why is our course without Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP)?

There are many training programs based on the use of NLP tools. Unfortunately, this is also the case in some ICF accredited programs, as it is not always what ICF accredited programs are taught. This is also why there are now only 8% accredited coaches (catalog here) out of the total number of people who call themselves coaches, since there is no way to get a coach accreditation using NLP.

In coaching, nobody programs anyone.

There is neuro linguistic programming (NLP), that is, the programming of the nervous system / brain with words, and there is coaching

On Wikipedia, NLP is a pseudoscience

"... NLP is based on outdated ideas about the structure of the brain, incompatible with modern neuroscience ..."

NLP tools imply assessment

The NLP practitioner, after evaluating the request, chooses one of the NLP tools at his discretion. For example, "balance wheel". Coaching is about non-judgement

NLP is not taught in USA and EU universities

We did not find any NLP training programs at public and large commercial universities in the United States and Western Europe. But there are found 46 coaching training programs

We guarantee
