TRANSCRIPT

 

Well hello my friend! Welcome to the Coach with Clarity Podcast. My name is Lee Chaix McDonough and today we are talking about coaching certifications, or specifically coaching credentials that you can obtain through the International Coaching Federation. So today's episode is going to be a little different for me because in many ways, I am updating a previous episode. So all the way back in Episode 25, I walked you through everything you needed to know about coaching certifications, specifically what to do if you were interested in pursuing a credential from the International Coaching Federation or ICF. Well, there have been some significant changes to the credentialing and accreditation process that ICF uses. So today, I am going to share with you what those updates are, and how that affects the programs and services I offer in Coach with Clarity, because it does in a big way, and in ways that I think will ultimately benefit my programs and make it easier for you to develop your coaching mastery and obtain that coaching credential.
