Professional coaching is often described as the most effective way of moving past the present circumstances of your life, career or business, to fully explore and achieve the most meaningful possibilities.

What might be possible if you regularly worked with someone to help you identify, focus and follow through on what was most important to you?

What sort of changes would be possible if that person provided the right mix of support, insight and challenge to keep you motivated, organized and progressing faster?

And if that person was an experienced and independent sounding board that held you true to yourself, would you be better able to achieve your most meaningful and fulfilling goals?

Of course you would, and that is why the client satisfaction rates of professional coaching is 98.5%. (And that is an average for all coaches!)

“Coaching is unlocking a person's potential to maximize their own performance. It is helping them to learn rather than teaching them. Clients say coaching brings out their best by helping them focus, break down tasks and clarify their values.” - Fortune

Magazine “The greatest good you can do for another is not just share your riches, but reveal to them their own.” - Anon

Some clients come to coaching because they want to be more effective, change or move forward in their career, start a new business, or simply make more money.

Many want to get better organized, enjoy better health and relationships, have more leisure time, worry less, feel like they are more in control, make more of a difference, or find out what they are truly meant to do with their lives.

Whatever a client wants, it is the coach's job to help them get it. And along the way a great coach will help clients discover what really matters to them, find out what brings them fully alive, and help them to create extraordinary lives full of effectiveness, fulfillment, balance, meaning, success and happiness.
Professional Coaches are highly trained professionals who help clients achieve their most meaningful goals faster, and with least effort. Masterful coaches have the ability to draw out the very best in clients, and then guide them towards a more productive, balanced and fulfilling life. Typically, coach and clients work through a process that includes:
  • Clarifying a vision of the most successful outcome that the client might achieve through the coaching.
  • Designing a strong and effective coach/client working relationship.
  • Clarifying a client's values to assist in decision making.
  • Developing a solid, step-by-step plan to achieve the desired results.
  • Ongoing support to help implement and follow through with the planned actions.
  • Finding the right approach or perspective to make the entire journey rewarding.
So, let's say you're interested in seeing how coaching could help you. How do you navigate through all the choices, sort out the different specialties, make sense out of the different trainings and qualifications? Please read on, we would like to simplify all this, and help you make the best decision for you. (Or, if you are ready now, just click on CONTACT)
Surveys show only half of coaching clients care about a coach's training and certification. We suggest you join the half that cares. Here's why.

There is a big difference in the quality and quantity of the training coaches receive. (As much as a factor of 10.) Check out our coach training comparison chart that highlights some of the major differences. (COMPARE TRAININGS)

Better training and greater experience do translate into far better results for you. If you do your homework and choose the right coach, you'll get a lot more value from your coaching experience.

And while any well trained and experienced coach will be able to assist you on a wide variety of issues, if you are looking to maximize the value of your coaching experience, you will also benefit from being matched with a coach that is the best fit for you in a number of areas including;
  • Agenda - What you want to accomplish through coaching. Life coaching? Career transition? Time management? Relationship? Health? Balance issues? General motivation? Executive or leadership or management issues? Small business? Personal growth? New business start-up? etc.
  • Personal Style - Beyond a popularity contest, what coach is going to give you the support you deserve and call out the very best from you?
  • Experience Level - Get the coach you need to accomplish what you desire. Why pay for more expertise than you need?
Unlike many approaches to therapy, coaching is future based and doesn’t deal with old roadblocks. It is focused on helping people discover what it is that really gets them excited - what gifts or talents contribute the most to their success and fulfillment. When clients develop clarity on who they really are, and what they want their life to be about, they rarely have a problem moving ahead strongly. In coaching this is done within a partnership of trust and confidentiality.
  • Clarifying a vision of the most successful outcome that the client might achieve through the coaching.

At Coach Central we only refer clients to experienced professional coaches (the best of the best) who have distinguished themselves within their profession. (Literally the top 10% of their profession.) These coaches are further divided into 2 levels of training and experience. All our coaches have graduated from an International Coach Federation (ICF) accredited coaching school. All are Certified. All are members of the ICF and are bound by its ethical and professional practice standards. (VIEW ICF GUIDELINES)

Mentor Coaches - These are our most highly trained and experienced Certified Coaches, the top 3% of the Profession. All Mentor Coaches are certified and possess world-class expertise in a number of specific coaching disciplines such as leadership training, relationship skills, coach training, marketing, practice building, career transitioning, emotional intelligence, marketing, business development, team building, etc. (To draw a parallel to the medical profession, at Coach Central our Mentor Coaches would equate to medical Specialists, who in addition to being a General Practitioner have gone on to acquire additional experience and specialized knowledge.)

Certified Coaches - This is a true Professional Coach, fully trained, very competent, highly skilled. (This is the coaching equivalent of a General Practitioner.)

All our coaches are screened by Coach Central staff, and are expected to maintain an unblemished record of delivering solid service and value to their clients and commit to ongoing professional development. We guarantee your satisfaction. And client satisfaction levels are routinely tracked and used to re-qualify coaches. We are very picky about who we invite into Coach Central. We only work with kind, smart, coaches with integrity, who are passionate about helping people. And all our experienced coaches are highly trained through an ICF accredited school. MEET SOME OF OUR COACHES
Step One
To make sure that you are well prepared to make a great decision on selecting the best coach for you, we recommend that you read several of the articles or case studies on coaching. (ARTICLES) We also suggest you give some thought to what you most want to achieve through coaching.
Step Two
Then just click on the REQUEST FORM link. The form will provide you with the option of being matched with the best coach for your needs or choosing the coach you would like to talk with from our selection of Certified Coaches. Or you can simply contact and talk to our experienced client advisors at 877.212.1922 Toll Free, or email us at info@coachcentral.info

Step Three You would then talk with the coach, or coaches, on a complimentary basis, sample their coaching style, and make the best decision for you.
Again, because we believe in the value of the coaching delivered by our highly qualified professional coaches - and believe that you the client should always be in control of your coaching - we leave it entirely up to you to determine when the coaching has achieved its desired outcome. In other words we don't require you to sign a contract, you are free to discontinue the coaching anytime you want. However for clients wanting to achieve significant breakthroughs, it is prudent to mentally commit to at least 3 months of coaching. Making big changes can often be tough. We want to make sure you make it. (Experience has shown that the average client-coach relationship lasts for 8 months.)

You can try coaching for as little as $500 per month. There are no mark ups, you pay the coach's standard fees.
