Five reasons why investing in a coaching qualification could be right for you

Are you considering improving your career prospects with a coaching qualification? Here are five reasons why it could be a good decision.

With research showing that 7 out of 10 of working women think their career progression will slow as a result of the pandemic, there’s never been a better time to take back control of your professional development and invest in a coaching qualification.

To help you, here are five reasons why a coaching qualification could be right for you.

1) You need to future proof your career

Coaching skills are highly valued by employers. You can use them on a daily basis to improve individual and team performance, build confidence and resolve conflict.

So, whether you want to expand your current role or are looking to catch the eye of recruiter, a coaching qualification will help you stand out from the competition.

2) You want to feel motivated and inspired

As the saying goes, you’re never too old to learn something new.  The older we get, the easier it is to stay in our comfort zone where we feel safe and secure.

A coaching qualification will kickstart your learning, helping you move into your stretch zone so you feel motivated and inspired to fast-track your career.

3) You’re looking for freedom and flexibility

Embarking on a coaching qualification is an invaluable way to explore a new career whilst continuing in your day-to-day role. As a coach, you can choose who you want to work with, where and when you want to do it. It allows you to have a second income stream or to take the plunge to change career and become a full-time coach.

4) You want to grow your business

In business, people really do buy people. The ability to have confident coaching conversations, either formally or informally, is the secret to building strong and successful relationships with your team, agencies and customers. 

A coaching qualification will give you the tools you need to set yourself up for success and help your business go from strength to strength.

5) You want to find more fulfilment at work

It’s particularly rewarding to help other people have their light-bulb moment or overcome a challenge that has been holding them back. Developing your coaching skills to help other people reach their full potential will give you a greater sense of purpose and meaning, both in the workplace and at home.
