This is a one of a kind, centralized view of the most popular coach training and certification programs, and the questions your should ask yourself when considering which one to select. I wish I had this when I was evaluating coach training and certification programs. It would have saved me a lot of time and anxiety. While I am happy with the program I selected, I wish I’d had broader exposure to more programs outside of the 2 to 3 I evaluated on my own. This book give you just that!
