I get asked this question, by both other coaches and by clients.
- What is a Master Certified coach?
- Does it really make a difference to the client?
- Why bother?
It is true that the road to MCC is a long one, needing to log at least 2,500 hours of coaching, pass assessments many times along the way, have mentoring, provide references, answer written exam style questions and hundreds of hours of coach specific training. It is a rigorous process. Why bother?
Indeed, why would a coach bother when they can attract their desired clients and fees already.
The answer is simple: the client has a much richer and deeper experience. A Master Certified Coach has learned how to masterfully coach a person in areas the client might not have known existed about themselves which leads them to a whole new level of operating and clarity. It is true there are coaches out there who are powerful coaches without this credential. But if you are looking for a coach that you know has been tried and tested, the MCC credential is a robust benchmark.
I was on a panel discussion with 2 other fellow MCC’s where we discussed what motivated us all to pursue this highest global coaching credential.
to this 60 minute discussion and please leave your questions or comments if you have some to share.
