The Center for Executive Coaching is the leading coaching training & certification company for professionals seeking success as coaches to leaders, executives, managers, and up-and-coming talent — especially in dynamic and complex organizations. We have trained over 2,000 coaches in 32 countries, and now give our members license to use our complete toolkit of two dozen, best practice coaching frameworks. Most coach training programs are not equipped to teach the realities of the market and how to develop solutions that get practical, measurable results for clients. The Center for Executive Coaching is the exception. We are fully accredited with the International Coach Federation as a Level 2 coach training organization (formerly called ACTP), and we also provide training for those who want the Board Certified Coach certification.
Andrew Neitlich is a seasoned coach, leadership advisor, and trainer. After graduating with distinction from Harvard Business School in 1991 (with stints on Wall Street, real estate, and work with micro-businesses in Kenya before then), Andrew led multi-million dollar consulting engagements for an international consulting firm. He also rotated as the firm’s Director of Training and Professional Development, responsible for the training and development of 3,200 professionals.
When some of his former colleagues saw his success and noticed that he was smiling a lot more as a coach than he ever did as a consultant, they asked him to teach them how to be coaches. When these initial colleagues started referring people to him for coach training, the Center for Executive Coaching was truly born. The Center has experienced significant growth since its inception, with members in 27 countries around the world, accreditation with the International Coaching Federation (ICF) as a Level 2 coach training organization (formerly called ACTP), and frequent requests for trainings. However, Andrew insists on limiting membership and keeping the Center for Executive Coaching small in order to provide highly personalized support to members.
Andrew has written a number of books about leadership and coaching, including The Way to Coach Executives (which is also the proprietary textbook for Center for Executive Coaching members). In partnership with Guerrilla Marketing Founder he co-authored Guerrilla Marketing for a Bulletproof Career, and Guerrilla Marketing for Coaches.
