Be a Confident and Effective Business Coach

The world of small and mid-sized businesses (SMB) is very different than other work environments – fast paced, high energy, extremely fluid, action oriented, multi-tasking on steroids. For more information about the SMB sector, please check out the FAQs.

As a Business Coach, you’ll be expected to hit the ground running and provide value right away. To do this, you need to understand the business world – culture, terminology, structures, challenges, best practices – or you’ll quickly be washed out. In addition, you need to have coaching techniques and tools that are geared specifically to the business environment, addressing their pain points and blind spots.

The Business Coaching Jumpstart provides you all that, and more. You’ll also receive CCEUs to renew your ICF credential and be eligible for a money-back guarantee.*

The foundation of our training is the VALUE™ Business Coaching Model, which has been developed, used and enhanced since 2009. It is time-tested and effective.

The BCJumpstart program is a unique blend of 10 weekly live teleclasses, focused on a coaching framework and techniques, tools and interactive practice sessions. After the live teleclasses are complete, you’ll have a full year of Mastermind and support resources, including 10 online, self-paced learning modules that focus on the business environment, culture, structure, and terminology, plus monthly Mastermind calls, a private FaceBook group, and expert interviews with small business CEOs. Everything you need to start and grow your Business Coaching practice!

The next Business Coaching Jumpstart starts on Monday April 11, 2016, 9:00-11:00am PT. The weekly live course will conclude on Monday June 13, 2016. Each class session will be recorded.
