06 Sep Why Getting ICF-Certified Matters in Coaching and My Experience with the Academy for Coaching Excellence
Today, I’d like to talk about something that’s near and dear to my heart: the importance of getting certified as a coach, specifically through the International Coaching Federation (ICF).
As someone who’s gone through the process, I can tell you it’s more than just a fancy title—it’s a game changer. And for those who’ve been considering diving into the coaching world or leveling up their current practice, you’re in the right place.
First off, let’s talk about the ICF. It’s the gold standard in the coaching industry. Getting certified through the ICF isn’t just about adding credibility to your name; it’s about gaining a deeper understanding of your craft. You get exposed to top-tier methods, practices, and tools to ensure you’re giving your clients the best possible guidance. Clients especially corporate and know the difference. If you’re also looking to expand your coaching to speaking, organizations who hire you will more likely trust and commit to a speaker/coach who’s got the ICF seal of approval.
My Experience at the Academy for Coaching Excellence
Now, let me share a bit about my own certification experience. I chose to get my training at one of the most rigorous schools out there: the Academy for Coaching Excellence (ACE). What makes this academy stand out is its focus on a wide range of coaching skills and a solid grounding in ethical standards. They are also one of the more rigorous schools out there – one of the few Level 2 Certified Coach Training Schools in the world. The mentors at
ACE really push you to grow, not just as a coach but also as an individual.
What is Ontological Coaching?
ACE is focused on “ontological” coaching is a form of coaching that is based on one of the branches of meta physicis called: “ontology,” which is the study of being. In simpler terms, it focuses on the whole person—their thoughts, language, and emotions. This approach ensures that the changes are not just superficial but deep-rooted. It’s not just about achieving goals; it’s about fundamentally changing how you see and interact with the world.
You might be curious to know that my focus is on entrepreneur coaching. Entrepreneurs face unique challenges and there’s nothing I love more than helping them sort through the complexities of running a business. We tackle everything from reaching your goals to learning life long skills to help with emotional intelligence. It’s incredibly rewarding to see my clients soar.
