Do you desire to be a health, life, relationship or business coach? Your first step is to choose a coach certification program that will equip and empower you to confidently launch and grow a coaching business. Although many programs promise you the world and offer quick and cheap programs your future coaching career is not the place to scrimp! It is important to choose a certification program that is right for you. In addition, as a Christian your needs and desires are specialized. Choosing a program that honors your core beliefs and values is a high priority. Although there currently are no legal requirements for having a coaching certification, having the knowledge and tools to confidently serve your clients will make a world of difference!
The following tips will equip you to choose a Christian life coach certification program that is right for you.
Tip #1 Choose a coaching certification program that aligns with your values
Not choosing a coach certification program that is in alignment with your values can lead you to find it difficult to relate or feel connected. You may feel a need to keep your guard up. This is distracting and energy-intensive. Having a program that does not align with your beliefs and values is like trying to have a conversation with someone who speaks another language!
Choosing a Christian life coach certification program that aligns with your values will give you greater ease and comfort and trust.
Tip #2 Choose program that is based on practical experience and results
When I received my degree in business I found it odd to be learning about business from professors who had never even owned a business!
Book knowledge is great. But I have found that experience is greater.
Choosing a coaching program that is created by an experienced coach who has achieved success in the area you are embarking upon can save you years of trial and error. It can also save you thousands of dollars! Real life experience will give you insights you would never get from only a textbook.
Tip #3 Choose a coaching certification program that is holistic and recognizes every individual as unique and divinely created with a purpose
Choose a coaching certification program that is holistic. Look for a program that is concerned with the whole person spirit, soul, and body. Seek a program that acknowledges each person as unique and created with a purpose. It is also important to choose a program that is not just behavior modification but rather focuses on inner transformation by the renewing of the mind. (Rom 12:2). Choose a comprehensive coaching certification program that focuses on the role of the heart knowing that “the issues of life flow from the heart.” (Prov 4:23)
A holistic coaching certification program should include the tools and resources to equip and empower individuals to heal, balance, and live their calling and prosper physically, financially, relationally, spiritually, and financially. (i.e. in all things).
Holistic coaching is based on the fact that every person is created in the image of God, unique and precious. It is not a “cookie-cutter how-to” system. It should equip and empower both you and your clients to build a life by design and not default.
#4 Choose a program that is comprehensive and provides practical tools and application you can use immediately.
It is important to choose a coaching certification program that is comprehensive and provides both the information and the tools you can put to practical use immediately.
A comprehensive coaching certification program should address subjects such as understanding how our brain works and how change occurs. It should equip you to understand the role of emotions in your health and in designing a life you love. The program should teach how habits are formed and changed. Look for a program that equips you to create a spiritual practice that is right for you and produces lasting results. A comprehensive coaching certification program should address the real-life issues you and your clients face and create positive and lasting change including overcoming a mindset of fear and lack, managing time, creating life balance, breaking financial limitations and set points. It should equip you as a coach to create rapport and build relational equity.
#5 Choose a coaching certification program that you can complete at your pace with both online and offline support.
You are busy. It is important that you can learn and complete your coaching certification at a pace that works for your schedule. Look for a program that allows you to study online and adds a live group or individual support, teaching and mastermind opportunities.
