About the Center for Executive Coaching

The mission of the Center for Executive Coaching (CEC) is to educate and train executive coaches to get outstanding results for their clients.

The CEC has developed a proven, step-by-step system and methodology that shows people how to coach executives, establish their credibility in a competitive marketplace, and get great results. We began in 2001 when some management consultants and trainers asked CEC Founder Andrew Neitlich to train them to become executive coaches. Since then, hundreds of highly accomplished professionals from six continents have joined our program. A 1,000-office business coaching firm hired us to create a “private label” executive coaching curriculum for their professionals. Also, we are an approved International Coach Federation (ICF) coach training program; the ICF is the leading standards organization in the coaching world.

We believe that we now offer a total package for executive coaches seeking success in the market. This package includes a process, structure, and content to become an outstanding coach and get results…along with a proven marketing system for authentic, educational-based business development. To help our members attract even more clients, we recently launched an executive-level coach and consultant matching service.

At the request of our members, we now also train in-house corporate coaches and executives to use our practical and powerful coaching methodology.

Despite this growth, we keep each class small and highly personalized. While other programs invest heavily in a glitzy marketing presentation and polished sales professionals, we prefer to attract a very few, very committed members who seek substance and a roadmap to success. Then we give them everything we can to help assure their success.

When you join the Center for Executive Coaching, you are not a student but rather a “member for life.” We take great pride in the fact that members continue to contact us for advice and guidance – or just to touch base and bounce new ideas around – long after they get certified. Many continue to join in on our weekly tele-calls; that’s because we constantly add new content and deliver our core content in new and creative ways.

You can contact us at any time with questions about our certification programs, to locate an executive coach near you, for group training programs, or for more information about us.
