Please join us for our 3.5-day intensive seminar and certification program that is sure to be a highlight of your career. People leave this seminar with confidence, deep skills, and an incredible sense of energy, passion, and possibility about succeeding as an executive coach. You also get practical, powerful tools and strategies to attract and delight clients. The process couldn’t be easier, because you receive your Certified Executive Coach certification upon successful completion of this Executive Coach Seminar. Plus, the program doesn’t end with the seminar. It includes the full Distance Learning program and ongoing support. That way, you can start now and build a base before the seminar, and also get ongoing education and support after the seminar ends.

NOTE: If you have at least 8 participants, we can come to you with our training! Contact us at 941-539-9623 or info@centerforexecutivecoaching.com to start the discussion.

Advantages of attending our coaching seminars include:
  • Personalized attention, because attendance is limited. We usually sell out at least a month out.
  • You are automatically enrolled in our ongoing distance learning program, so that you receive ongoing support before and after the seminar. You can always participate in our weekly calls, network with our members, access your member area for updated content, and get one-on-one support whenever needed.
  • Meet an incredible group of highly accomplished professionals, whether to form alliances or add to your network for support and idea generation long after the seminar.
  • Enjoy high energy, practical case studies, and the momentum that comes from back-to-back practice.
  • Get the best guidance in the industry about positioning your executive coaching service, whether as an internal or external coach.
  • All hours count towards an ICF designation, if that is a goal.
  • You leave energized, more confident, and with both a 30-day and long-term plan.

Note: This seminar throws out many of the rules of traditional “instructional design” that make most trainings so frustrating and boring. Our members are impatient, results-driven, highly effective professionals. We treat you the way you expect to be treated, without fluff, boring lectures and theory, or slow-moving discussions of ground rules and process before every session. Instead, we keep you engaged and involved, with an emphasis on improving your coaching skills and confidence in a high-energy, fun environment. At the same time, Founder and Director Andrew Neitlich personally leads the training and is accessible if you need one-on-one time for your specific questions.

“Your seminar was simply amazing. I have met a lot of people in my career who are dynamic and electric. You move to the top of that list. I have a better framework to build my new business with renewed enthusiasm. The coaching demonstrations, especially about limiting perceptions, were kick-butt and hit home. I will also be working on my book thanks to your encouragement.”  – S. Reynolds

“This seminar is a game changer.”

T. Hobbs, EVP, Practice Leader, Integrated Health Strategies

“The Center for Executive Coaching Seminar sets itself apart from other coaching certifications in a several ways. Firstly, it teaches multiple processes (not just one) that are the most in demand in real world offices. Secondly, CEC really covers the gap that most other programs have, which is how to effectively implement the processes it teaches. The business and marketing sessions, and training to create our own frameworks sets this program far apart from others. For those looking to coach in professional organizations, I highly recommend the Center for Executive Coaching.” – M.K. Oke
