There are a lot of executive coach educational programs out there. After significant research I selected the Center for Executive Coaching. I couldn’t be more pleased with the instruction and support provided by Andrew. And as a bonus the program attracts top caliber students from all over the world. The network one develops as a CEC graduate is second to none. I highly recommended CEC for anyone looking to build, or improve an executive coaching business.

Andrew is the business coaching expert who saved me from investing my life time savings in coaching schools that do not teach far beyond asking open ended question! He is an amazing author too.

Jeff Oliver, MBA, PHR, SHRM-CP

VP, Talent Management | Certified Executive Coach. People & organizations have unlimited potential when grounded in culture, purposeful work, and adequately supported. I leverage strategies to deliver on that potential.

Andrew’s program for Certified Executive Coaches is an unbelievable experience. As an experienced coach and practice owner he inspires confidence and credibility to everyone he mentors and teaches. The highlight of my time learning from Andrew was his practical approach to helping drive results for clients and working through multiple coaching methodologies to explore all of the tools at my disposal. I made the right decision to pursue learning from Andrew versus the multitude of other coaching programs available. Those who recommended CEC to me did me a true service- ensuring my investment was worthwhile and that the time spent would be a return on investment. I’m appreciative of Andrew’s passion and commitment to his member coaches, and I recommend his program to anyone who wants to be a serious Executive Coach, creating value and helping leaders become the most effective version of themselves. Beyond learning from him, he is likely one of the best Executive Coaches out there.

Global Workplace Wellness Certification Provider I CERTIFIED EXECUTIVE COACH I Transitional Leadership Expert I President, Consultant, Trainer, Speaker “Workplace Wellness Centre of Excellence”

If you are seeking gold standard, best-practice executive coaching skills, methods, toolkits, robust mentoring and peer coaching opportunities in your journey to becoming a Certified Executive Coach, look no further. I have been researching Executive Certification Programs for many years and once I found Andrew’s, I knew my search was over. As a global training provider myself of Workplace Wellness Certifications and Executive Wellness Leadership Programs, I had high standards in what I was seeking (i.e., applied/experiential skills-based learning, implementable toolkits and continued learning and mentoring opportunities). I recently completed his 3-day intensive (which I highly recommend) and am most looking forward to continued learning/mentoring from him, his faculty members, and program graduates via his weekly interactive seminars.

Peter Anderson, PhD

Empowering leaders (especially in higher education) to grow resilience, solve workplace culture problems, and build high performing leadership teams. Lead with Empathy – Affirm Diversity – Create Belonging.

I’ve spent most of my professional life teaching and mentoring people or training&observing people who are learning to teach – I’ve spent a lot of my professional life being trained – I’ve spent a lot of my life lately on zoom. So, believe me when I say I was worried about doing an intensive training course online. BUT, this was one of the most rewarding programs I’ve been part of online or in person, not only for the content and the approach, but also for the active involvement and networking. Coaching is not really training or teaching, it is empowerment. Andrew, one of the most generous people I have had the pleasure of working with in this industry, has empowered all of us in the program … and now we can help empower leaders. Thanks, Andrew.

From a wealth of business experience, Andrew Neitlich has created the best executive coaching training program available. As a former university professor, I know good teaching when I see it.

From the moment I spoke to Andrew, I was totally enthused about working with him. His no-nonsense style cuts through to the heart of how he gets results in coaching and training others. He speaks to you plainly and openly. He admits what has worked and what hasn’t and most crucially lets the learner/coachee explore what is right for them. His style was authentic and energizing to be around. The people attracted to The Center for Executive Coaching are top-notch, and I had one of the best cohorts of coaches I have had in a long time. I hope to continue working with Andrew, I highly recommend him.

Maxine Dotseth

Certified Executive Coach | Business Consultant | Leadership Coach | Sales Performance | Career Transition | Board of Directors Leadership

I researched executive coach certification programs extensively. To say that I landed in one of the best offerings is an understatement. Andrew’s knowledge of coaching principles coupled with practical business application is outstanding. As both a practicing executive coach and skilled trainer, he has exceptional content and focused training methods. The caliber of cohorts and extensive knowledge brought forward by Andrew is a compelling learning and growth experience that I can now apply to my coaching business.


Lauren F.


Andrew and his instructional methods are exceptional, the hands on experience his program provides takes you out of normal instruction style and gets you right into applying the skills. The feedback loop of the process where you’re working with other high level professionals and executives is authentic and meaningful, not contrived. I cannot recommend the program enough, if you’re looking to grow, expand your expertise, or reinforce your skills, this is the program for you.

Straightforward, relevant, and ability to make an immediate impact! These are just a few of the many benefits that come from partnering with Andrew to become a well sought after resource for any business or organization wanting to persevere in a time of uncertainty. I can’t thank him enough for his energy and value and would encourage any person or organization to utilize and learn from his expertise!

I cannot speak highly enough about the Center for Executive Coaching (CEC), Andrew Neitlich, and the outstanding executive coaching certification program. It is, by far, the best training in which I have participated. The depth and breadth of the content is unparalleled, as is the personalized support that continues after the end of the program. Andrew shares his contact information and he’s not kidding when he says that he will get back to you within a day. His response is unfailingly immediate and thorough. He is interested in you and your success. The CEC certification program created instant value for myself and for my clients. The practical methodology that Andrew teaches is one that I have been able to leverage and implement with positive outcomes immediately after completing the program. This is because the tools and skills that CEC participants learn are ones that provide greater impact, results, and value for clients. My only regret is that I did not sign up sooner. Run as fast as you can to take advantage of all that the Center for Executive Coaching and Andrew Neitlich offer.

Dean W. Moyer

Founder The Moyers Coaching and Consulting

When a friend encouraged me to take advantage of Andrew’s Center for Executive Coaching training sessions I was a bit skeptical. Why? He said, “without question this is the best training I have ever received.” “the best…ever?” He persisted and I decided to go. Boy was he right. From the moment of registration to the present (6 months later) it has been a life-altering experience. Here are several reasons why: the communication, the sense of being part of something significant, the resources, the quality of presentation and interactive learning, the tools, the new network of like-minded friends and the on-going accessibility to Andrew and his wisdom. I’m so glad I accepted my friends invitation. You will be too.

I am now a seasoned coach in my country, Zimbabwe, Africa. During my initial stages in developing my coaching career, I discovered Andrew and found his programs and great advise very useful for the growth of my coaching business.

Kemmy Safdie

Helper to businesses through Strategic Planning President The Safdie Group- Strategic Advisor & Executive Coach

I was a skeptical New Yorker when I was considering joining the Center for Executive coaching a couple of years back and I am so happy I did not give in to my skepticism :)

The information Andrew provides in the Member area alone is “worth the price of admission” never mind the fact that Andrew is an amazing teacher!! What I love most about the program is how real it is, no “fluff” teaching core competencies with clear understanding (I also doubt there is any Coaching program out there that actually teaches you how to build a business)

What amazes me most is Andrew’s dedication to his students, I have rarely sent an email with a question or asking for advice that I did not get a response within an hour (from a Man that has a full time business).

I highly recommend joining the Center for Executive Coaching to grow your career, start a career or just for continuing education.

Craig A. Coffey

Founder & President | Executive Coaching for Senior Marketers | Diversity & Inclusion Champion

Andrew Neitlich is the founder and leader the Center for Executive Coaching. He has developed a comprehensive, engaging and excellent certification curriculum packed with high quality, robust resources and toolkits designed to address the wide variety of opportunities you will face as an Executive Coach. Andrew personally facilitates the program that consist of interactive training and hands on peer-to-peer coaching. He has a teaching style that leverages his pragmatic business acumen, passion for Executive Coaching and quick-witted candor resulting in an engaging, open atmosphere and great collegial spirit. Importantly, this is program is not weighed down by theoretical business concepts and jargon. It is practical and accessible information to help you be a better coach for your clients. If you are considering becoming an Executive Coach or are already in the profession and want to deepen your skills, I would highly recommend the Center for Executive Coaching.

Jennifer Schmelter, CPTD, ACC

Executive Coach helping organizations turn their human capital into their greatest strength

Andrew’s program at the Center for Executive Coaching is the best investment I have made in my business to date. I have been in the program for 9 months, attending both online sessions and the in-person seminar. The tools and resources made available to us as new coaches are invaluable and Andrew does an outstanding job of explaining best practices, walking us through case studies, and giving us live coaching practice during our calls. In addition to coach training, we receive access to Andrew’s business development modules. These modules alone paid for my investment as I gained the skills I needed to close contracts I may not otherwise have won.

Andrew makes the logistics of the program simple and is extremely reliable and responsive. The personal support and feedback he provides outside of the sessions is outstanding. I would recommend this program to any business professional looking to enhance their coaching skills or open their own firm. Andrew’s no-nonsense approach, years of experience, and sense of humor make this program as enjoyable as it is valuable.


Casey Richardson

Managing Partner at Authentica | Board Certified Coach

The Center for Executive Coaching strengthened my outcomes focus in one-on-one client work. Specifically, Andrew’s curriculum design provided comprehensive content and ongoing community support. Most importantly, the dedicated time in the on-site program has already translated to immediate value for existing clients.


Jacob Benson

Principal Consultant – Global Cloud Architect at Sirius Computer Solutions

Andrew, and the Center for Executive Coaching have had an incredibly positive impact on my life. The program itself is comprehensive, easy to follow, the learning opportunities (from Andrew and other participants) are endless, and the resources provided to you are second to none. Andrew’s style is no-nonsense and straightforward. His experiences as both a coach and founder of the coaching program are incredibly valuable and provide real value, especially to someone new to coach.

I would, will, and have recommended Andrew and the Center of Executive Coaching for anyone who is new to coaching or is looking for a program to take their existing coaching practice to the next level.


Patty Hardt

Advising executives to help solve their greatest challenges while improving their company’s enterprise value.

Andrew Neitlich and the Center for Executive Coaching (“CEC”) provides exceptional value for those executive coaches that want to be more than a certified executive coach. Andrew’s training and his sharing of real-life coaching experiences is invaluable. I recently attended the CEC executive coaching certification seminar which was structured to allow for the practical application of the coaching material. I not only left with my coaching certification, but I also doubled my confidence as a coach having applied the concepts and training in real time. The CEC has amazing resources for not only becoming an executive coach, but also provides for the many other aspects of building a thriving and successful coaching practice.


Lee Goldstein

Lead Organization and Leadership Development Consultant

I was extremely impressed with Andrew and the Center for Executive Coaching. The certification class was conducted well and provided a valuable opportunity to learn and practice coaching skills. As the main presenter, Andrew connected with everyone in the class and present the material in a manner that was both informative and entertaining. Andrew was able to translate his vast experience in terms that coaching beginners could easily understand. I believe that everyone walked away with a strong belief that using Andrew’s methodology would produce impactful results. I provide my highest recommendation to Andrew and the Center for Executive Coaching.


Jared Harding

People are my purpose.

Andrew’s excellent and practical approach to coaching, developing professional experience, and suggestions for building a successful client-centered practice helped my career trajectory considerably. Since attending the certification from the Center for Executive Coaching, I often refer to the ideas and discussions we had to craft a strategic plan for my own organization and personal growth. I will value the professional skills I gained through our interaction and will value it as a premier experience in training for my career.


Claudia Minner

Helping people thrive personally and professionally through life-changing conversations

I just received my Certificate in Executive Coaching, and I thank Andrew so much for everything. All of his individualized support and guidance has made a world of difference in transforming me into a high quality coach. I would recommend this program to anyone, and I appreciate the caliber of this training immensely. Though I have my certification, I plan on continuing to listen to seminars to enhance my learning as they are invaluable lessons. I look forward to leveraging my new certification in my career, and cannot recommend this program to elevate your coaching practice enough!


Gayle Nicholas

CHRO at Allied Benefit Systems and Managing Director, Deployant Advisors, LLC

Wow! What an experience working with and learning from Andrew. While intense, his certification class program is very worthwhile and gratifying. The class structure allows you to learn in an environment of professionals with Andrew guiding and leading with an unsurpassed depth of knowledge, experience(s)and passion that is infectious—all with a great sense of humor thrown in. I wish I had done it sooner and highly recommend Andrew as a trainer and coach. I feel prepared to enter my own journey of coaching thanks to Andrew!


Dan Williams

Chairman Emeritus at Garver

I had the opportunity to attend one of Andrew’s training sessions. Of all of the executive coaching certification programs available, the Center for Executive Coaching provides the most practical training. The resources the center provides are absolutely phenomenal. Andrew is an outstanding teacher and presenter and I found my time with him very valuable. I look forward to continuing to work with Andrew and the Center for Executive Coaching.


Robert (Bob) Stone

Vistage Chair | One of the World’s Top 100 Innovators | Sharing my Coaching Experience & Expertise

I am very fortunate to have had the opportunity to have been coached by the late great Bill Johnson (The Trillion Dollar Coach) and, more recently, over the past several months by Andrew Neitlich. Both have been life-altering. If you have the opportunity to learn from Andrew jump at it, you will not be sorry! The deep business experience from both his work as an executive consultant and as a senior leader in the enterprise that Andrew brings to his teachings is vast. Learning from the intellectual property that Andrew has developed separates him from all the other coach/advisor certifiers.


Andy Cornell, MS, PHR®

Principal Consultant – Global Cloud Architect at Sirius Computer Solutions

Andrew is a leading expert in the area of executive coaching and strategic advising. I received my Executive Coaching Certification through Andrew’s organization, Center for Executive Coaching. I entered the training with high expectations regarding the content, and my expectations were far exceeded. The training was insightful, unique and immediately applicable. The knowledge I gained will have an immediate impact on my business initiatives and goals. The program includes great resources and tools to help implement coaching strategies and tackle the most relevant business issues. In addition to the content, Andrew’s facilitation of the workshop was top notch with powerful insights and a healthy amount of humor to make it a great training experience.


Corrin McCloskey, MPH

Communication, Public Relations & Business Development Leader; Executive Coach & Physician Leadership Champion

Andrew is the real deal. His no nonsense, direct and results driven approach to coaching is refreshingly honest. He gives you all the tools you need to be successful in addition to being available for his members. I have found that the Center for Executive Coaching is an incredibly high caliber of true visionaries and industry leaders. The decision to join this program may be the single best decision I have made for my development and career.

Sandy Hansen-Wolff

Business Owner, Speaker, Business Visionary & Consultant

I received my Executive Coaching Certification through Andrew’s live training. His insights, exceptional knowledge base, ability to manage brilliant but independent leaders and format for this program was over-the-top in content and skill-building exercises. I’d recommend Andrew and his programming for any professional who wishes to be on top of their game. Amazing work Andrew!

Dennis MacGillivray

Growth Leader Development Expert Partnering With Professional Service Firms; International Speaker

With decades of experience at a global consulting firm, I had been coaching professionals for 10 years before joining Andrew’s program to become a Certified Executive Coach. Now, as I juggle weeks full of coaching calls, I dial in as often as possible to Andrew’s teleclasses. I usually pick up at least one fresh concept that I put immediately to use with clients. I know of nowhere better to go for a steady stream of practical coaching ideas that clients value highly. He’s also funny (occasionally).

Dan McGuire

Technology Executive | CTO | Leader | Financial Services

Andrew’s program at the Center for Executive Coaching is well-organized and well-presented. Between his sessions, his associates, the excellent materials and the network of prospective coaches in the program, Andrew has found the formula to create a strong ecosystem for real learning and success. In evaluating students, his attention to detail is really incredible and his feedback is thoughtful and future-focused. I highly recommend both Andrew and the Center for Executive Coaching.

Marriot Winquist

Certified Executive Coach for Women Leaders in Technology & Business Strategy Consultant

I recently attended the Executive Coaching certification seminar offered by Andrew Neitlich from the Center for Executive Coaching (CEC). I really appreciate Andrew’s straightforward, no nonsense, and effective approach to executive coaching. He stresses the focus on our clients and their results, and provides simple, common-sense frameworks that can be immediately applied to any coaching engagement (or for many business discussions, for that matter). The 3.5-day seminar itself was engaging, with plenty of opportunity to practice, evaluate, and even come up with new ideas and frameworks ourselves.

Andrew is also very committed to his students, offering continuous support for us far beyond the seminar or the length of the program classes. As someone who has reached out to him at different times with questions on specific coaching situations, I can attest that he is true to his words on his support and responsiveness.

Whether you are new to coaching and want to establish a solid foundation, or you want to sharpen your coaching skills to complement your leadership experience, I would highly recommend Andrew and the CEC.

John Reitano

Medical Doctor in Private Practice – Adult and Adolescent Psychiatry

There is much to learn from Andrew at the Center for Executive Coach Training & Certification Seminar in Sarasota, FL. He distills concepts into readily comprehensible frameworks and serves as a model of how to align a professional life with one’s personality. You leave with a good understanding of what to do next and access to the tools needed to advance an executive coaching practice.

Kelly Stuart

Executive Director, Physician Ethics at Bon Secours Mercy Health System

I just finished my first executive coaching seminar in Sarasota with Andrew. The energy and content were amazing. Andrew brings technical knowledge and skills, practical perspective, experience, and refreshing candor to teaching. The seminar is definitely a worthwhile investment for executive coaching skills training.

Linda Bahrke

Population Health Administrator at Mosaic Life Care

I recently attended the Center for Executive Coach Training & Certification Seminar. This seminar exceeded my expectations. Andrew has extensive experience and openly shares this experience in a practical format. He has excellent presentation skills and the ability to communicate in such a way that there is immediate applicability to your particular situation. If you are considering adding coaching to your skill set, I highly recommend the Center for Executive Coaching.

Paul Edelman, PhD

Executive Coach | Facilitator | Board and Family Office Advisor

If you are looking to learn executive coaching skills, practice coaching, or earn certification as a coach, Andrew Neitlich and his Center for Executive Coaching (CEC) programs are the best investment you can make. Andrew is a Harvard Business School graduate with extensive business, consulting, and coaching experience. His pragmatic, results-oriented approach reflects his deep appreciation for the world in which his clients live.

Andrew is down-to-earth, approachable, and generous. He is not one to talk theory, yet the methods he teaches and the way he teaches them are consistent with the most advanced conceptions of how people learn and grow. He knows that new or developing coaches naturally feel uncomfortable. This discomfort interferes with coaches’ ability to differentiate their thinking.

What Andrew has done is to go through the entire domain of executive coaching and differentiate all of the imaginable kinds of situations in which a coach might have the opportunity to be helpful. He tackles each of these situations systematically in the chapters of his book, the modules of his tele-classes, his coaching tool kits, his many helpful spreadsheets, and his in-person seminars. He breaks each topic down into its component parts or elements, offering frameworks the learner can use to organize their thinking. Then, he provides examples of appropriate coaching questions to ask in the context of these frameworks.

After breaking each topic down, Andrew offers participants the opportunity to apply what they are learning through demonstrations, case examples, and practice coaching. Completing Andrew’s programs has enhanced my ability to integrate my skills and experience across a broad range of coaching situations.

I am grateful to Andrew for providing this experience, and I recommend him and the CEC programs most highly.

Eddy Massier

General Manager, Multi-Channel skilled and fervent Brand Builder, Certified Executive Coach (ICF)

As a Senior Executive my intention was to acquire a deeper understanding of and get certified as a coach. Andrew‘s program / CEC had been recommended to me by different people. Looking back, it has provided outstanding value for the money and time invested. Andrew‘s program is practice and real business life oriented, keeping theory limited to the essential. It covers a wide area of very business relevant areas and introduces coaching as a practice and opportunity to create real value in the respective areas. By doing so Andrew ensures that clients familiarize themselves and comprehend the critical competences and guidelines stipulated by the ICF, too. He does so predominantly through practicing and feedback which really sticks. Another key benefit of CEC is the wide range of availability tools, the network opportunities and the possibility to acquire additional skills and certifications – as in my case as Master Facilitator. CEC is an excellent program to prepare you for being a coach, to improve your skills if you are already a coach, to prepare you for ICF certification and to provide you with invaluable tools and ideas to develop your niche or coaching practice.

Elizabeth Bisordi

Experienced transformational business & strategy leader.

I had the good fortune to train under Andrew at the Center for Excellence in Coaching. He is one of the most common sense, attuned coaches and trainers I have encountered in my almost 40 years in business. He is no-nonsense and rather than filling people’s heads with theory, he had a practical way to impart real knowledge and expertise around bringing value to clients. Time spent with Andrew led to understanding how to assist and coach executives in solving real business issues that could bring value to both them and their businesses. He brings unique and real value to the forefront.

Daniel Bolena, CSM, PMP, MBA

Global Sales Enablement Coach at ServiceNow

Without any hesitation whatsoever, Andrew is an amazing Executive Coach. Additionally, he is a Coach’s Coach, taking his in person coaching seminar has positively changed the trajectory of my coaching aspirations and career.

There is no substitute for what Andrew brings to the market, he is the Porsche of Executive Coaching.

Beverly Winkler

Strategic Leader – Talent & Learning Development – Organization Development – Certified Executive Leadership Coach

Andrew is an executive coaching dynamo! His name and the CEC program was repetitively shared with me by other executive coaches I respect and counsel with across diverse industries. I’ve been a coach and mentor for many years and his training was unbeatable. During his CEC training program he offered no-nonsense practical suggestions and tips to help me add tremendous impact in my executive coaching relationships. This program and ongoing CEC tools available online plus Andrew’s availability by phone and email will provide the new and seasoned coach a tremendous opportunity to expand their skills.

Ron Lutz

Executive Vice President – Chief Client Officer @ Miller Zell / Non-Profit Board Member / Speaker / Certified Executive Advisor – CEC

As a C-Suite exec I have had the opportunity to work with numerous coaches throughout my career. I recently attended Andrew’s Center for Executive Coaching certification intensive seminar…..and if you are a professional executive coach, or have aspiration to be one……RUN, don’t contemplate, make the decision to seek Andrew and the CEC out as quickly as possible. Pragmatic, focused, straight to the points that matter, and heavy results oriented. You will leave inspired, eager, equipped with the “right” toolsets for any executive coaching situation. The bar has been elevated, thank you Andrew!

Shelly DeVore, DNP, FACHE

President at S & J Leadership Enterprises

Andrew has a no nonsense approach to executive coaching. He is dedicated to developing senior leaders within organizations and does so through the Center for Executive Coaching. If you want to up you coaching skills or develop new skills, reach out to Andrew for assistance through the CEC, you won’t be disappointed.

Kristofor Gfell

Leadership Advisor / Certified Executive Coach / HR Leader

A recommendation from a trusted colleague led me to join Andrew’s Center for Executive Coaching (CEC), as well as the in-person Certified Executive Coaching Seminar. This decision is THE game-changer for my burgeoning leadership coaching business. Andrew is a talented teacher, with a style unlike anyone I have come across in a learning environment. His self-awareness is evident, as he candidly shares his own strengths, weaknesses, experience and techniques with the group. This is an authentic compliment to his straightforward, insightful, and results-oriented style. The tools Andrew has compiled (far too many to list) can be easily implemented and are designed to support clarifying issues without unwanted theoretical jargon. Bottom line – if you want training that instills confidence, boosts skills, and offers generous resources then look no further than Andrew and the CEC.

Carol Heady

Customer Service|Leadership|Author|Speaker

The CEC seminar I recently attended provided tremendous value and I’m looking forward to applying the framework process to the real world. As a result of attending the seminar there are some tweaks I can make immediately to what I’m currently doing with active inquiry and my welcome kit (to the client). I must mention, I made some invaluable connections, so thank you for creating that opportunity.

Bud Brainerd, DMin. CEC

President at CSF34 Consulting

Professionalism matters. Expertise matters. Value matters. The investment of time and money, both in limited supply, must generate results that matter. Andrew delivered on all three points. Words that come to mind from the Center for Executive Coaching training: focus, clarity, results. I came away better equipped to help clients understand what is at stake for their company and for them personally. I am now confident I can provide a minimum of 5x to 10x ROI for every client.

Jessica Hagey

Director Organizational Development and Well-being at Mosaic Life Care

The training I received from Andrew through the Center for Executive Coaching was engaging, practical, and applicable to internal or external coaching. I was able to take away impactful action steps and items that I will use in my position as an internal coach immediately. All aspects of the training experience were very pleasant from the location to the group of peers in the program and most importantly Andrew’s straight-forward, insightful approach. If you want a training where you are immediately able to apply the skills you are learning about to increase your effectiveness as a coach, this is for you.

Dennis MacGillivray

Growth Leader Development Expert Partnering With Professional Service Firms; International Speaker

If you want to up your game, pick up the phone and reach out to Andrew – you’ll be impressed with his responsiveness, his unlimited energy, his ongoing generosity, and his ability to model excellent coaching behavior effortlessly. His self-effacing style and somewhat unfiltered humor make him riveting – his extensive body of material and pure relentlessness will make you a better coach/advisor/consultant, no matter where you’re starting from.

Andrew has not only developed a fantastic toolkit to empower executive coaches to deliver impactful results, but he is also super candid about his 20-year experience of successes and failures, which is pure gold. No hype only practical, proven, and powerful information.

Andrew’s high energy and great sense of humor create an intense and delightful experience. Once the seminar ends we maintain life time direct access to Andrew and to a vast library of online trainings which are additional gems from this program.

The seminar attracts accomplished professionals from around the world and diverse industries which open the doors to create lasting professional relationships and a support system with like-minded people.

Jeff McCaffrey

Helping Executives Aim Higher and Achieve More

Andrew is a top notch facilitator, trainer and coach who makes things simple, understandable and doable. He is hands on, practical and eager to help. His Center for Executive Coaching is a world class organization that attracts the most elite talent that I’ve seen. Whether you’re an aspiring coach or a seasoned practicing coach wanting to up your game, Andrew can prepare you for success, with the knowledge and tools needed to be in the upper echelon of top coaches.

The seminar that Andrew facilitates is highly organized, well paced and just a stretch for each learning exercise that adds maximum value. We also have the advantage of practicing with other experienced and beginning coaches where he observes and mentors as we do. The weekly tele-classes with Andrew are tight-knit and well manageable groups where Andrew can teach, role-play and take many questions all throughout the calls. The tool-kits and resources provided are like everything else, outstanding.

I highly recommend joining the Center for Executive Coaching as it has far exceeded my expectations in quality of material, the access to resources and above all the leadership of Andrew Neitlich. I’ve never felt so prepared for anything like I am now, to be an extraordinary coach, because of joining the Center of Executive Coaching.

Nancy Burdette

Executive HR Business Partner

I would highly recommend Andrew and the Center for Executive Coaching. Andrew’s leadership approach, hands-on business experience and direct communication style complements the CEC program training. The program provides extensive resources and support in transitioning into the field of coaching. The quality of program’s participants is top notch including former CEO’s, accomplished business owners, and established executive coaches looking to take their practice to the next level. Having acquired numerous certifications over my career, this is by far the best program I have completed.

Therese Hill

Managing Director, Accenture Strategy

Andrew is brilliant. While he is being authentic, engaging, and hilarious, his speed-racer brain knows exactly the next insightful question to ask to lead to breakthrough thinking and solve deep-routed business problems. He is an inspirational teacher with very practical lessons and processes. I highly recommend Andrew and the Center for Executive Coaching.

Meredith Kelly Oke

Executive & Career Coach, delivering globally by phone & Skype

The Center for Executive Coaching Seminar sets itself apart from other coaching certifications in a several ways. Firstly, it teaches multiple processes (not just one) that are the most in demand in real world offices. Secondly, CEC really covers the gap that most other programs have, which is how to effectively implement the processes it teaches. The business and marketing sessions, and training to create our own frameworks sets this program far apart from others. For those looking to coach in professional organizations, I highly recommend the Center for Executive Coaching.

Dr Priti Nanda Sibal

Andrew’s teaching style is very engaging. He keeps it very straight forward and involves lots of exercises during his sessions. This makes it very effective and very seamless. The role plays and coaching him on his Profile XT were amazing add-ons. Seeing the difference it could make in one’s leadership is unbelievable. I enjoyed and learned every minute I was in the workshop and I feel it was great decision to be present in-person in the seminar. The toolkits are very practical and the team is so amazing that the whole seminar in addition to being a learning platform becomes very insightful for us.

The best part is, it does not end here. Andrew makes himself available to coach and mentor you and support you in closing engagements. He actually makes you move forward by making you accountable. Having him as a sounding board and a mentor is a recipe to my success.

His practical experience and no nonsense approach to the “real world” of consulting was a fresh breath of air. I am better prepared to grow my business and focus my executive coaching practice based on his guidance and mentoring. If you are considering working with Andrew as an executive coach or business consultant, I highly recommend him. His sense of humor and high energy make the engagement a wonderful experience.

Andrew and the Center for Executive Coaching exceeded my already high expectations. The program provided me with robust coaching toolkits, clarity on my brand and positioning, insights into where I’ve been holding myself back, a plan for tapping into my powerbase, an exciting new network of successful peers, mentorship opportunities, and most importantly, a deep understanding of how to practically apply what I learned in order to improve my business and clients’ results. The ongoing resources and community that you gain from the CEC are astounding. Andrew also addresses what many programs do not: how to market yourself, approach pricing, and conduct effective sales conversations. He is not afraid to be transparent and to answer the difficult questions.

I personally enjoyed Andrew’s teaching style and quick wit. He is engaging, no-nonsense, results focused, and it is obvious that he truly cares about the success of all of his students. I have no doubt that my experience with the Center for Executive Coaching will prove to be a game-changer in my business. I would highly recommend this program to all internal and external coaches.

Greg Stinsa

President at SS3 Business Consulting: Helping Leaders & Organizations Make Extraordinary Gains in Sales.

Andrew is one of the most amazingly individuals I have ever met in 30 years in business. His Center for Executive Coaching is beyond transformative. His unique framework teaches his students the real world of coaching. He has toolkits, methodologies, processes and solutions to EVERY possible situation you could ever encounter. Finding Andrew was an absolute blessing.

Andrew is an extraordinarily successful professional coach who works with executives and companies across the country. He is an even better mentor and teacher. He provides incredible value for his on line study programs and his 4 day seminar for coaching certification was perhaps the best event I ever attended. The content was invaluable and the caliber of people attending was off the charts with company and university presidents as well as NASA engineers, entrepreneurs and other brilliant minds. It was just inspiring to be the dumbest person in the room and consistently interact with people who give you incredible insights and help you refine your coaching.

Andrew is best in class professional coach and mentor!!!!

Alyssa Snider

Vice President & Chief Human Resources Officer at Universal Stainless & Alloy Products Inc

I was fortunate to attend the Center for Executive Education in-person certification in May 2018. This was one of the best decisions I have made in my life. It quickly became clear to me that I had chosen the right coaching certification program for me; the content of the program was top notch, the toolkits and follow up calls present unlimited opportunity to continue your education and deepen your skillset, and the other participants in the class were so impressive. It was worth every dollar of the money spent to attend.

Andrew’s teaching style is very engaging. He moves quickly enough to not allow boredom to enter the room, and stops when needed to bring people along. One of the things I appreciated most about Andrew is that he doesn’t mince words. If you’re not getting it right, he’s not going to coddle you. For me, this approach was extremely effective – tell me what to fix, so that I can do it. He does this from a place of truly caring about you, as a coach and as an individual. He’s responsive to questions, both in the calls and or email/phone messages.

I’m grateful to have Andrew in my life as a coach/teacher/mentor, and hope that you too have the opportunity to work with him one day. As an internal coach, I was initially skeptical if I’d find value in the setting up a coaching business information, but I found that it opened doors in my mind for future opportunities.

Thank you Andrew!

Dennis Kight MA BCC ACC

Board Certified Executive Coach ACC Level Coach, International Coach Federation (ICF)

When I decided to pursue coaching as a full time profession, I did a lot of research to find the right program for me. I had attended a webinar that Andrew held and was immediately impressed by the way he presented coaching. I joined the program in January 2018, and began attending the weekly calls. I was impressed by how much my confidence grew, along with my knowledge base of coaching. Andrew has a unique way of teaching that I find quite enjoyable. In the Center for Executive Coaching, there is always a practical business related approach to coaching, there is no fluff or reliance on theory. It’s easy to see how a particular case or scenario can be applied in the “real world.” In addition to teaching you the coaching principles and foundational skills needed to succeed, Andrew also teaches you how to start up and run your own practice. My confidence as a coach was further boosted when I signed my first client.

I had the privilege of attending the Center for Executive Coaching 4-day certification program in May 2018, and enjoyed not only meeting Andrew in person and working with him, but I also enjoyed meeting and working with the other participants in the program. I was impressed with the backgrounds that each participant brought to the table, and enjoyed being able to partner with each of them during different assignments throughout the program. I would highly recommend Andrew as a coach, and if you are looking to become an executive coach, look no further than the Center for Executive Coaching for your certification. My coaching certification with the CEC has been one of the best investments I’ve made in my personal development.

Mike Sweeney

Board Director and Executive/Business Coach

I just returned from the Center for Executive Coaching seminar in Sarasota, FL after participating in approximately three months of live virtual CEC training prior to that. The four day seminar was great and really built on the lessons from the live calls . I don’t know how Andrew keeps his energy level so high for the entire 4 days…but he does! In addition to the content, workshops and real-life examples Andrew provides at the seminar, one of the best parts for me was the interaction with the other attendees. It was a diverse, talented and very collaborative group of professionals. It is a group of people who will become an important part of my network. I strongly encourage others who are considering or continuing a career in executive coaching to sign up for the CEC program….you won’t regret it.

Sarah Drijfhout-Sellen

Founder at Concord Direct – Leading Sales Professionals

Andrew embodies the no-nonsense, straight-talking, authentic (dare I say caring) qualities we wished all business leaders aspired to in the corporate world. Once you’ve worked with him and seen him in action you’ll realize you’re working with someone with massive integrity and a laser-sharp attention to what’s happening in your business, in business leadership and in the business world at large. His experience and judgements are inciteful and on-point. Listening, challenging and driving change Andrew helps business leaders to understand their pain points while leaving them firmly in charge of the wheel and accountable for making those changes.

In Andrew’s coaching training his fast pace and passion are extremely energizing, – it’s a refreshing change from the 99% of fluff that’s out there in the marketplace. He has realistic, real-world understanding of the drivers in business and he’s highly effective in both communicating and instilling this on the CEC ICF accredited training. You should leave one of his programs with no excuses for failure, and he’ll continue to give you support for as long as you need. What’s more you’ll meet a tribe of phenomenal characters along the way, with plenty of opportunities to hone your executive coaching skills. Andrew’s training package is formulated with success in mind for all those leadership coaches ready to rise to the challenge. If you dare to succeed you will not regret signing up to of one of his programs.

Inspirational! Thank you Andrew.

Jeannine Lanoux

Executive Coach | Leadership Development Facilitator | Designer of Competency Based Career Ladders

Having received coaching training over multiple jobs during my professional career, I was somewhat skeptical of what a seasoned practitioner could learn from Andrew at the Center of Executive Coaching. When my very experienced and talented mentor/coach asked if she could practice what she was learning at CEC on me, I happily obliged and was simply stunned by the improvement in her skills. I signed up immediately and have been delighted by the practicality and everyday usefulness of the skills Andrew teaches. He is a pragmatic and dynamic teacher whose direct style is extremely engaging. He teaches with real world examples and cases, lots of practice rounds and skill-building, all led with a good dose of humor. If you are looking to invigorate your coaching proficiency, or looking for a powerful coaching intervention in your business, Andrew and CEC are the place to go.

Andrew is able to package up complicated concepts, tools and models in such a way that the essence of the core skills are very accessible to aspiring coaches.

This makes his program very powerful for people who want to have a maximum impact coaching senior level executives.

I have travelled from Australia to attend the Center for Executive Coaching program and whilst I was expecting great things, the course exceeded my expectations and made the effort and the whole trip to Florida worth it.

Andrew has developed a comprehensive, engaging and excellent course packed with high quality, robust toolkits, resources and a wealth of information designed to address a wide variety of organisational challenges. The 3.5-day program was both intensive, practical and perfect for executive coaches – even better if you aim to be an ICF or BCC coach. Andrew not only delivers the program with high energy, enthusiasm and a great sense of humour, he also provides an insightful, straight-forward approach in applying the frameworks he has developed over the years. It is clear that he is highly committed to developing and improving quality in the coaching industry and just as dedicated to helping others grow effective and successful coaching practices.

I highly recommend Andrew and the Executive Coach training program of Center for Executive Coaching to coaching professionals who are interested in continuous learning and growth

Mark Kogelnik

Vice President & Executive Coach | Consulting Services at Watterson & Associates, Inc.

I’m excited to implement and share the practical takeaways having just spent time with Andrew Neitlich of the Center for Executive Coaching. The peer mentoring and hands-on practice Andrew led was invaluable to advancing my appreciative inquiry. His facilitated, interactive training session provided a fun, open atmosphere to learn behavioral and perceptual coaching techniques.

Specifically, Andrew’s quick-witted, candid, business-oriented style helped demystify the perceived ‘magic’ often accompanying assessment and coaching. The tools he has compiled, and various resources available, are easy to use and clarify the issue at hand without convoluting the point with unnecessary theoretical jargon. He clearly practices what he teaches, as he was highly effective at modeling real-time coaching and consulting.

Andrew’s take on the importance assessments can have in various consulting and coaching engagements nicely complement today’s business needs. He provided tangible ways assessment results can be incorporated into a variety of business coaching engagements.

I highly recommend Andrew, and the Center for Executive Coaching, for those looking to advance their practices by gaining hands-on training, real-world advice, and a framework with easy-to-implement tools. In addition, I would not hesitate to engage Andrew with the most challenging business and executive coaching engagements.

Ann Dieleman, MBA, CEC

Growth Strategist | Leadership Advisor | Executive Coach | Board Member

I had been researching executive coaching programs for some time when I discovered the Center for Executive Coaching. Days away from selecting submit to “XYZ program”, I met a graduate of the “XYZ program” and a graduate of the CEC program. During our lunch the CEC graduate raved about the program. The XYZ graduate stated the one they went to would be a waste of my money and time. After a brief call with Andrew, I enrolled in the CEC.

I often hear “you’re unlike most executive coaches I meet…in a good way.” Why? Enrolling in the CEC was one of the best investments I made for my clients and my practice.
• The technique Andrew uses is straightforward, pragmatic, results-oriented. He pushes you to achieve while encouraging with doses of humor and sprinkles of lessons he’s learned.
• The methodologies equip you to solve most any problem you encounter with a client and create immediate impact for the companies they lead and for them as a leader.
• With the relationships you create at the Seminar, graduates you’ll connect with online and ongoing support from Andrew, you gain a network to some of the best executive coaches in the World for continued learning.

If you’re serious about mastering the craft of executive coaching, this program is for you. Simply ask a graduate you meet at lunch.

Ron Tester

Ron Tester

I was very circumspect when it came to evaluating coach training programs. I spent many hours mulling over websites, watching videos, reading industry standards, reviewing marketing collateral, and seeking opinions from those I respect. In the end, I chose to participate in Andrew’s Center for Executive Coaching. I am extraordinarily thankful that I made that choice. Andrew is a gifted teacher who shares his experience, insights and methodology with clarity and humor. Despite his impressive resume, education and accomplishments, he doesn’t dominate as he teaches, choosing instead to collaborate with coaching students in the learning process. Don’t misunderstand—he has a structured, rigorous methodology that prepares executive coaches to make a significant impact. He just shares his methodology in a human, humorous way. During our frequent interactions, Andrew has always been welcoming and insightful, an ally who wants what is best for us because it makes us better for our clients. I strongly recommend Andrew as a coach/instructor and the Center for Executive Coaching as the program of choice to learn effective executive coaching.

Andrew and the Center for Executive Coaching stand out from competing programs for two main reasons: 1.) The incredible wealth of frameworks, toolkits, and resources; and 2.) Andrew’s accessibility. If you’re someone who’s considering Executive Coaching training, Andrew will provide you with myriad resources — well beyond those that any other organization provides. Want a framework for Strategic Planning? You’ve got it. Want something for Facilitation? It’s there. How about Negotiation? You bet. You’ll have templates and starting points galore that are tremendously helpful to allow you to rapidly frame your thinking in a coaching situation. Then, Andrew’s accessibility is the icing on the cake. He’s an incredibly busy guy, but you get his phone number and his e-mail address and a lifetime of support from him. Few people would be so generous with their most precious asset. Whether you’re looking for a certification or looking for training to make you a better coach or looking for some coaching for yourself, look no further than the CEC.

He tells it like it is – and at the same time, creates a very supportive environment, so that his learners feel comfortable taking risks. I am thrilled that I chose Andrew’s program, and appreciate that he offers access to the program website and materials for life. The Center for Executive Coaching is top notch, thoughtfully executed and flexible. What’s not to love?

I received coach and leadership development training previously that ignited the spark and desire to help others, but felt something was missing. I was searching for something more pragmatic that I felt could make an immediate impact and get to the heart leadership development and help businesses and executives solve complex problems. I found exactly that with Andrew and the Center for Executive Coaching. I just completed the 3.5 day intensive coaching seminar, and I just can’t say enough about how it’s prepared me to help others in a way that will make a lasting positive impact to organizations and leaders. Andrew was very engaging and used practical methods to quickly improve each of the seminar participant’s coaching and leadership development skills. I now have the necessary tools to help my consulting and leadership development practice thrive. I would highly recommend Andrew and the Center for Executive Coaching to anyone looking to make a significant difference in their lives and others.

I just completed Andrew’s workshop for Executive Coaching certification and am thrilled with the experience. Unlike many programs I researched, Andrew’s approach is practical and business focused. There is a good balance of theory and specific examples. There was also ample time to practice skills and share ideas and approaches. He helped establish a network of talented contacts that will help me continue to build my expertise and grow my practice. Andrew also offers a bounty of tools, resources and on-going support. I’m grateful for the experience and the connection this great coach.

What an Awesome weekend of learning! Thanks to Andrew and the Center for Executive Coaching. This past weekend I had the incredible opportunity to be part of a group of talented professionals to learn and to understand the concept of Executive Coaching as presented by Andrew Neitlich and the Center for Executive Coaching. There is a void in leadership development and that void can and must be filled by the theories of Executive Coaching as demonstrated by Andrew’s extensive research and teaching. Andrew’s facilitation of the program was well thought out with strategies and tools that can be applied in a very systematic way to effectively develop your coaching practice whether it be internal or external coaching. The three-and-a-half-day session was not filled with PowerPoints (thanks!), rather it was packed with methodologies and tools that you were able to learn and practice immediately during the break-out sessions. I particularly liked this format since it gave us a chance to practice the concept and then comeback and ask clarifying questions. Andrew was patient and had a great sense of humor which made understanding his materials as it related to realities of the business world. My only regret is not knowing these concepts when I started my HR career almost two decades ago. I am enthusiastic about the new concept of Executive Coaching and looking forward to using it as part of my HR portfolio. I am appreciative of the format where Andrew’s CEC also gives you access to much-needed tools for your practice as well as a lifetime of resources through CEC. Thanks to Andrew and his team at CEC, I have a unique niche within the HR profession to continue to develop leaders by being a Certified Executive Coach through Andrew’s organization, the Center for Executive Coaching. I am looking forward to this journey. Thanks, Andrew.

I just attended the CEC executive coaching seminar and it was outstanding. Andrew Neitlich has a very approachable style and shared so much great knowledge and experience. And I truly appreciate his candor and humor. It was an action-packed three and half days and I’m leaving with a wealth of information, not just about how to effectively coach managers and executives but also how to market my services. His robust toolkits will be a huge help to me in my coaching practice. He also took a very personal interest in each of the attendees and has committed to being available to us for consultation going forward. I highly recommend the CEC program.

Geoffrey Ryan

Founder, Executive Coach & Senior Human Resources Consultant

Finally! An organization that grounds their executive coaching program in business reality and supplements it with coaching theory and proven coaching skill development. I had been looking for an Executive Coaching Certification program that would leverage and supplement my two decades of experience as a global HR executive, consultant and coach. The Center for Executive Coaching was the one and only organization that met all of my criteria while offer a path to numerous coaching certification programs including Certified Executive Coach (CEC), Board Certified Coach (BCC), and ACSTH – ICF approved coach specific training hours. Andrew is an outstanding facilitator, expert in coaching and the key to what made the CEC right for me. His ability to bring everything back to the fundamental question of “what problem does your client have and how are you going to add value to facilitate the resolution of that problem as a coach to your client?” demonstrates his understanding of what really matters to his clients and brings into sharp focus the value proposition that executive coaches should have to offer their clients. The “icing on the cake” is that I am now a life-long member of The Center for Executive Coaching and have all of the resources of the CEC (including Andrew) at my disposal during my journey as a Certified Executive Coach.

Doreen Kelly

Head of School at Ravenscroft School

I just completed the Center For Executive Coaching Seminar and I pleased to report that it was excellent in all facets of the experience. Andrew did an excellent job administering the program and met various learning modalities as he is an excellent facilitator. I recommend this seminar to all those we are interested in improving their craft as well as exploring future business aspirations.

From the first time I spoke to Andrew about considering attending, I knew his programme was different. I knew I made the right choice as soon as I arrived at the Hotel. I found the learning atmosphere as well as the people who attended fantastic. Andrew led the program in a pragmatic, but highly engaging way. I have 15+ years of coaching experience, but learned so much during the course! The CEC not only builds capability, it increases confidence in those who attend. I have also made some real friends from the programme, which also helps build your network.

The other key differentiator I found with this program is what happens after your certification. Andrew’s resources that are available to you are excellent quality and his personal support of you if you need a quick touch point is second to none. This program is great value for money.

DeAnna Bokinsky, MHA, FACHE

President – Vision Point Partners, LLC

When I decided to become a certified executive coach I researched quite a few different programs for the right fit. I weighed the pros and cons of each and reviewed comments/recommendations and started making a list. But when I found the Center for Executive Coaching program, I no longer needed the list. The Center for Executive Coaching is the “all-in” program – you are part of it for life. The value of that in and of itself is worth the cost of any program. The network you find when you join is amazing and once a member, you feel like you are part of something bigger than yourself….and it means so much to feel like you are not alone in your path to success. Andrew gives 100% to this program and is there for me/ us anytime. He provides resources upon resources and is there for advice whenever you need. I do not just recommend this program but I stand behind it 100%. It has given me the courage, the confidence and the resources I need to be successful. Thank you to Andrew and his staff and affiliates for a truly rewarding experience.

Jackie O’Connor

VP Operations & Client Services, Certified Executive & Leadership Coach

Andrew is an extremely bright and insightful expert in his field of executive coaching. He draws from his deep work experience and high intelligence to quickly assess and adapt in the moment and deliver critical insights, guidance and support to his clients. He is open and collaborative and committed to the success of others. He’s an excellent resource and true partner. I highly recommend Andrew in the capacity of an executive coach and/or the CEC for anyone interested in obtaining an ICF-approved coaching certification.

Valarie K. Horton

After extensive research, I decided to join the Center for Executive Coaching. I was immediately impressed with Andrew’s direct contact and guidance regarding the Executive Coach certification.

Soon after I joined, I had the privilege of attending Andrew’s seminar in Sarasota and it was absolutely top-notch! Andrew personally delivered a wealth of information, providing the knowledge and tools to be successful as an Executive Coach. However, what sets him apart is his sincerity, his heart for those he mentors in his program, his leadership, his direct style, and more importantly, his lack of tolerance for mediocrity. He is refreshingly authentic and focused on practical and measurable coaching that in return, creates an edge unmatched in the industry.

I cannot recommend Andrew and the Center for Executive Coaching highly enough. With Andrew as my mentor and as a member/alumna of the Center for Executive Coaching, I know I have the resources I need to further my success and thereby, the success of my clients.

Ed Augustine

Strategic Advisor | Executive Coach | Vistage Worldwide Advisory Board Chair

Andrew Neitlich is a superb coach, trainer, facilitator, thought leader and resource for all things related to coaching business leaders. I value his practical and frank style of communicating in his many training sessions, presentations, articles and books about the coaching profession. Above all, it is his integrity and the results he achieves that have earned him my highest level of respect and admiration. I take great personal and professional pride in endorsing Andrew and his Center For Executive Coaching and look forward to his additional guidance, support and inspiration as I continue to develop my own executive coaching practice.

Nicole Provonchee, MBA

Marketing & Communications Expert, Executive Coach

When I asked leading coaches who taught them how to be a coach – one name kept coming to the top of the list: Andrew Neitlich. I was lucky enough to participate in Andrew’s executive coaching program in 2017. Quite simply – Andrew is the real deal. His instincts are impressively accurate, his feedback is concrete and actionable and he offers his students an impressive wealth of resources then can immediately implement.

He will challenge you to be the best leader you can be, while also supplying you with the tools you need to be successful. If you get a chance to work with Andrew, I strongly recommend taking the opportunity.

Michael H. Walker, SPHR

Head of Learning and Development at Goodwill of Central and Coastal Virginia February 22, 2017, Michael H. was a client of Andrew’s

It is my pleasure to recommend Andrew and the Center for Executive Coaching. I recently completed my certification program. Andrew was my coach, instructor and mentor throughout the process. He brings passion, energy and amazing insight into the process of coaching and solving leadership and business issues. The program provided an opportunity to learn through lots of practice in real-world scenarios along with immediate behaviorally based feedback from Andrew. The program also provided the added benefit of a network of peers with which to learn and work.

Andrew’s commitment to me as a student goes beyond the workshop, making himself available through online seminars, access to toolkits and so much. I am confident that the preparation he has provided me will enable my coaching and consulting practice to continue to grow.

Keri Kozlowski

Executive Coach | Leadership Development Speaker | Attorney Mediator

I spent a year researching Executive Coaching Certification programs and Andrew’s Center for Executive Coaching program was the perfect fit. Andrew’s presentation style and seminar format is engaging, interactive, and immediately impactful. Everyone in the seminar was a professional in both demeanor and expertise and I am proud to call each attendant my peer. If you are looking for an Executive Coaching Certification program that will give you the tools and ongoing support that you need to succeed, then I recommend Mr. Andrew Neitlich.

Amber King

Executive Coach at Navicent Health

Whether you are an entrepreneurial Executive Coach or an internal Executive Coach, the Center for Executive Coaching seminar is unequivocally a top rated training program. Having spent years in an Executive Leadership role and attending the endless monotony of mediocre presentations at best related to strategy, employee engagement and the likes; the CEC seminar completely surpassed all my expectations. The model in which Andrew utilizes to deliver the information is equally engaging as it is applicable. His tenure as an Executive Coach, complimented with his genuine interest in your success is the perfect equation for a program that is sure to propel you forward in your career.

Gayle Grader

Talent and Leadership Advisor/ Business Advisor/ Executive Coach/ Strategist/Ideator/Connector/Catalyst

Andrew has created the ideal executive coaching program for those who want to work with top notch rising and executive business talent. I spent several years trying to decide on a program, and I am here to say he delivered exactly the kind of training, tools, and support system I was looking for. I highly recommend anyone seeking to develop their executive coaching skills to look closely at this program, particularly if you are more business oriented. Not only was the content exceptional and the group dynamics great, Andrew turned out to be a phenomenal teacher and mentor.

Dr. Rochelle Webb, CEO

I help businesses and educational institutions optimize business and classroom performance.

It is with great pleasure and confidence that I recommend Mr. Andrew Neitlich, Director, Center for Executive Coaching. Andrew is a master coach with exceptional facilitation and communications skills. His curriculum and practical toolkits provide a tangible accelerator for executive coaches. Andrew has an exceptional ability to develop a quick but comprehensive and accurate assessment of his clients, which in turn results in a collaborative relationship that moves the client towards goal achievement. Thank you Andrew for your leadership and mentorship as an executive coach!

Temeca Richardson

Certified Executive Coach

I cannot express how incredible the executive coaching program is at CEC. When I stumbled upon the page, I wanted to join immediately, but told myself to wait and try to find a reason why this was ‘too good to be true’. So, I searched and searched and everything that I looked at checked out, so I joined. I was on vacation in Belize when I actually joined! Andrew has been so incredible and so accommodating. He avails himself to me when I need him and he never stops teaching. Never! Now, I feel like I have the tools needed to start and grow my coaching business. If you are looking for ‘light coaching’, this isn’t the place. If you want to have everything that you need to start, run, and scale your business, then CEC is the place to be!

Julie Chance

The investment I made with the Center of Executive coaching is one of the best investments I have made in training and I have made a bunch! I consistently use the skills and tools I learned in my business and with my clients.

Heather Moster

Expediting the path for technical experts to become extraordinary leaders

The CEC is one of the rare finds in the coach training industry that combines the best of pure coaching with practical frameworks designed for a wide variety of leadership, strategy, and organization challenges commonly faced by clients. Andrew’s programs are relevant, and he brings to life the power of the content through real-world examples, role-plays and tutorials that are available to students live, on-demand, and beyond certification.

Andrew is unbelievably responsive throughout the program and provides valuable advice around ways to create frameworks and entire programs for clients. This has helped me open up new possibilities for client engagements and advance my coaching wheelhouse to the next level to get results for my clients.

Within the two months of being enrolled in Andrew’s program, I began implementing the CEC tools with my clients. For example, I worked with the president of a fast-growing site planning and surveying firm to engage and mobilize the organization. That same client just retained my company for all of 2017, and I know the CEC frameworks and training I leveraged helped secure that contract.

The CEC has proven to be the unifier of my practice, bringing together my previous behavior change coach training and corporate experience. I highly recommend Andrew’s programs for anyone serious about developing a robust coaching practice that’s built around best practices and service excellence.

Anthony Mulkern

Helping entrepreneurs grow enterprise value through growing their executive leadership.

Andrew is an extraordinary and unique presenter and individual, whose combination of authenticity, vast knowledge, real-life experience, and humor make you wish the seminar could last much longer. His commitment and passion to helping others becoming more successful executive coaches shows in all that he says and does. The organization he has built is an invaluable resource for sole practitioners and others looking for tools, feedback, skills, and a highly supportive network. I highly recommend his certification program, and can attest to leaving his seminar inspired and energized.

Erin Whitehead Curatu

Chief Executive Officer at Kick The Ceiling

I knew when I came across The Center for Executive Coaching it would be different from all the other programs out there. Andrew’s coaching program is welcoming and fun. It teaches you methods that actually work. My clients have amazing things to say about my coaching and it’s all because of the frameworks and tools that Andrew teaches. I had the pleasure of attending one of Andrew’s certification conferences. It was well thought out and time well spent. I was able to practice and refine my coaching skills the entire time, not to mention make new friends for life. Being around other like-minded individuals who offer encouragement and support isn’t something you’ll find anywhere else. I highly recommend The Center for Executive Coaching to anyone who is thinking about becoming a coach – it’s simply amazing!

Andrew is a great coach, instructor, and mentor. I have had the pleasure of interacting with Andrew for the last 6 months and am impressed with the content and insight every time. Andrew’s honesty and sense of urgency is refreshing and challenging. I particularly appreciate how he builds both halves of my coaching business every interaction. He is always helping me be a better coach with tools and techniques, while also holding me accountable to building my business. I enjoy the interactions and the people Andrew brings together to grow. I highly recommend his onsite 3.5 day intensive as a real accelerator for success.


Debora McLaughlin Executive Coach PCC, CEC

“Having worked as an external coach for over 13 years, I learned businesses require coaches and consultants to have a proven framework positioned to provide a return on investment. No other formal training has provided me with the degree of resources and skill building like that given by Andrew and the Center for Executive Coaching. Knowing how to identify business concerns, market effectively and solve systemic issues within organizations has resulted in larger doors opening, repeat engagements and long-term clients. Within the first two classes, I received an 18k contract using “engage and mobilize.” My use of the frameworks and executive coaching skills learned resulted in an additional 115k of business within 9 months of joining the program. Not only that, I am working with healthcare and technology CEO’s and executives and teams to help them to achieve their goals and rediscover the meaning in leadership. I love what I do, each day. If you want to spend less time trying to get business and more time delivering results I highly recommend the Center for Executive Coaching and Andrew’s genuine support. ”


Harjot Singh, MD

“Andrew is the best Coaching teacher I have ever had, bar none, and I have had a few. Here are the highlights that any prospective student needs to know:

  • He teaches classes himself instead of farming out to other people.
  • There is lifetime access to materials. You have permission to use the materials for lifetime.
  • The mentor coaching needed for ICF is included.
  • The hands on training with tons of chances to learn and practice coaching.
  • Training about assessments especially Profile XT is excellent.
  • He answers emails without fail.
  • He genuinely wants his students to succeed beyond even what he has accomplished, and it shows – a true teacher.
  • The support to grow your business is immense
  • Did I mention the whole business development series that are included in training?

Availability of advanced materials for advanced coaches.

Please feel free to contact me if you have other questions.”


Lynette Bear DNP, CRNA, MBA

“Andrew is well known for his training programs, coaching skills, his attention to detail and his life long commitment to his students. You may not know that Andrew succeeds where many fail–he is a superstar coach for healthcare leaders. He has worked with healthcare systems and leaders to help create success in a difficult, competitive field. Combining Andrew’s coaching techniques with my executive leadership background has given me the tools I need to drive my coaching to an entirely new level. Thank you, Andrew! This was one of the best investments I could have made in myself!”


Eric Anderton

“If you’re struggling as a business coach or consultant, and are looking for practical help that has a bottom line impact , contact Andrew. I have personally had a 400% ROI from the courses I’ve taken with him. His approach is straightforward, easy to comprehend, and rooted in deep understanding of what it takes to be successful. If you want to personally chat with me about the work I’ve done with him, I can go into much more detail. Feel free to contact me through my LinkedIn profile. Thanks Andrew for all the work you do. Your integrity, quality, and excellence separate you from the rest!”


Pamela Kindel Connors, FWS, CSW, CSS

“Upon just completing Andrew Neitlich’s 4-day seminar I would highly recommend that any business professional seeking the most dynamic executive coaching program look no further. This seminar by far was the most energizing and interactive with the opportunity to partner with other business leaders and coaching professionals in a very inclusive and supportive environment. Andrew has truly built the most comprehensive coaching program through the CEC that provides you with the most value through on-going personalized support as a member for life! With that and the coaching toolkits provided, I feel confident and empowered to successfully impact my career going forward!”


Becky Arruda

Certified Executive Coach & HR Consultant

“I recently attended the Center for Executive Coaching seminar in Sarasota, FL and had the privilege of working with Andrew. He did a fantastic job of creating an engaging and interactive experience for the participants, without using mind numbing presentations. I learned a tremendous amount from him on how to improve my coaching technique and how to apply a practical framework for working with clients. He is a truly a master in the coaching arena. I also participate in his 3x weekly calls, which he holds personally. This speaks volumes to his commitment to this program and to the success of others. I highly recommend becoming a part of the Center for Executive Coaching to both aspiring and experienced coaches.”


Adam Gunn

Engineering Director – LATAM at SABMiller

“I recently became a member of the Centre for Executive Coaching and attended the 4 day certification seminar in Sarasota FL. Andrews enthusiasm, energy and knowledge comes across in spades! I was delighted with the practical focus of programme as well as Andrews commitment and personal support for both the aspiring coach looking to define a niche in a crowded market, as well as the experienced coach looking to inject new direction or impetus to an existing practice. I am looking forward to continuing my own personal and professional development with the CEC community over the coming months.”


David Nye

Senior Business Management Consultant | Executive Leadership & Team Coach

“What sets the Center for Executive Coaching apart from others is that Andrew really understands the business problems of today, and how coaches can help provide various solutions to meet the needs of the market. To put it simply, Andrew gets it! I attended his seminar in Sarasota, FL, and also attend his weekly tele-classes. The course content presented is very valuable, and instantly applicable to my own consulting and coaching practice. Andrew has a great delivery style that keeps everyone interested and engaged at all times. What is also unique about him, is that he remains accessible to his students for simple and complex questions about coaching, business, and client development. He is a resource you can count on as a trusted advisor, both now and in the future.”


David Schulman, M.S., LMHC

David Schulman, M.S., LMHC Leader Advisor and Developmental Partner. Principal, DBS YOU and COMPANY, Inc.

“Andrew’s leadership in the development of today’s best prepared executive coaches is unrivaled. While there are other very smart and committed players in the wide variety of executive coaching programs available, in my view, Andrew has distinguished himself as the dean of U.S. executive coaching. He’s done so not only by challenging CEC candidates with a most rigorous core curriculum. He has also equipped and trained each in an arsenal of frameworks that dispatches fluff from the executive client experience. Andrew also makes sure that no one graduates without understanding that they are going into the coaching business. Unlike any other program out there, CEC prepares and continually supports executive coaches in connecting to the clients that need their help. The CEC program provides ongoing professional growth to graduates, which keeps practitioners current and sharp, as well as ongoing enterprise support. Andrew works tirelessly to find new ways for his graduates to achieve and maintain professional excellence. As a caution, if you like chit-chat, filler, or a leisurely pace, uh, this might not be the program for you. Andrew is a terrific guy, but he’s hell-bent on getting you prepared.”


Jesse Calloway

Certified Executive Coach / Experienced Operations Executive / Ph.D. Engineering Management / Adjunct Faculty Member

“Andrew’s training course for executive coaching truly went above and beyond. Not only did he provide very insightful methodologies and approaches for success, he also, and very creatively I might add, closed the loop regarding how the best market personalized coaching services. I left the training session feeling engaged and energetic. Thanks for a great ‘push’ Andrew.”


Austin Joseph

“As a fellow ‘Guerrilla Marketing’ author, I recommend Andrew without reservation. I’ve been studying with him for the past 7 months to prepare for the PCC certification. His content and demonstrations have been transformational in building my practice as a coach, consultant and speaker.”


Mary Ellen Wasielewski

CEO, BLT Strategies, Executive Coach, Transitions and Transformation, Speaker, Consultant

“If I were gathering a high-capacity team to tackle critical strategic and operational challenges, Andrew would be among the first invited to the table. He brings a wealth of insight, creativity and experience. Under Andrew’s direction the Center for Executive Coaching is the Gold Standard which all coaches of BLT Strategies must rise to. I searched for 2 years before deciding on where to get my certification and recognized no other company has quite the cachet as CEC. His program teaches as a coach, how to quickly became a trusted advisor, encourager and advocate. Andrew has the unique ability to help those around him become both better leaders and better people. For that I am grateful.”

If asked to rate Andrew’s executive coaching certification program on both content and facilitation, with a Likert scale of 1 through 5, I would give it a 6. By far the best continuing education/ certification program I have ever participated in. Andrew’s technical subject matter expertise in both executive coaching and business consulting, coupled with his outstanding facilitation skills and powered by his impressive educational background make this program an absolutely stand-out Executive Coaching certification program. Given my extensive research of other ICF approved programs, I highly recommend his program as the investment worthy top choice.

Andrew and his program are outstanding! He is very hands-on throughout the program and more importantly he continues to provide support even after you obtain your certification! The program offers many opportunities to practice the skills you learn and the tools provided are invaluable!! I recently attended the Executive Coach Certification intensive workshop and I can honestly say that I walked out of the session feeling much more confident in my abilities as a coach and excited about what I will be able to accomplish in the future as result. Thank you Andrew!!

The curriculum is first-rate and the tools provided to his students give them a clear competitive advantage in the field.

Outstanding class, Andrew! I have had the opportunity to attend many Coaching seminars over the span of twenty years. Seminars hosted by Organizations such Walmart, The Home Depot, The Gap inc and more. Companies with resources to hire the best money can buy. They brought in very talented people, yet your course on Executive Coaching was by far the very best I have attended. It was inclusive, challenging, smart and engaging. I have coached and trained many leaders in the above organizations, individuals that in some cases surpassed me career wise. Through your course on Executive Leadership, I now understand why, but most importantly, I have the toolkit and the vision to get back into the game. Great Job to the Center for Executive Coaching. Thanks Andrew for making your life business – the business of helping leaders like myself to reach for the “gifts” we are all born with! Regards Dale Green President and Founder Gideon’sFlight “Ambassadors for Men.”


Marderé Birkill

I attended the Executive Coach training program over the past eight months. I have a great appreciation for Andrew’s input and resourcefulness. He has a wealth of experience, one could take this program a number of time over and still be learning. I look forward to an ongoing relationship with the centre, the lifelong membership and arsenal of tips and tools is an immeasurable benefit to any new coach. Definitely a best in class program.


Heather Ahlburn Emerick

Here’s what I like about Andrew- he is completely straightforward, honest and listens to what people are saying. His approach to coaching is logical and the tools offered by the Center for Executive Coaching are smart, practical and results oriented.

Michael Ikona, Psy.D., CEC

C-Suite Leader | Strategy | Certified Executive Coach | Organizational & Leadership Development | Project Management

When looking for an executive coaching program to help me meet the ICF’s certification requirements, I was very picky. After searching for a few weeks, I discovered a colleague of mine was currently enrolled in the Center for Executive Coaching (CEC). She was very pleased with the program, and her endorsement made me feel comfortable about enrolling. Needless to say, this program has proven to be very, very good! Andrew doesn’t only talk about the ICF competencies (although there is a lot of talk about it), he also talks about his experiences as a full time executive coach. Moreover, he has countless toolkits available for members that can help coaches whose clients are in specific situations. Having access to the toolkits alone are worth the price of enrollment! I have become a more effective coach since my enrollment and give Andrew and the CEC my highest possible endorsement! – Dr. Michael D. Ikona, Psy.D


Vic Pemberton

Andrew, WOW! Thank you for what you shared, how you shared it, and the simplicity in the way you shared. So much information with a great way to put it together into a workable coaching scenario, I feel like there isn’t any situation I cannot help someone get to where they want to go. I have already signed up clients, only 2 months since the class, that will pay for all the training and travel. This is a great roadmap to help me meet my goals, of helping others meet theirs!


Danny Barakat

Certified Executive Coach at Administrators Europe srl

I had the chance recently attending the executive coaching seminar in Sarasota, Florida held by Andrew Neitlich, the Founder and Director of the CEC. The seminar is a great opportunity that is practical results oriented and offers the best coaching methodologies and toolkits.

Amy Olson

Wow, my experience working with Andrew and the CEC has been outstanding! After much research for executive training programs, I decided upon CEC. I do not regret my decision at all. Andrew has a unique approach combining both coaching and consulting techniques to provide solutions for executives. There are very practical tools that can be applied immediately to help executives achieve their individual and organizational goals. The ROI that they receive is minimally worth 5-10 times their investment, and I can say the same about the CEC training program. It has been worth every dime invested!
Andrew is great to work with too. He has a witty personality that keeps students motivated and engaged. Yet, he is also very personable, caring, and always available. I would also highly recommend the in-person training session at Sarasota. It was invigorating! I was skeptical about spending the extra money, but I am so glad that I did. It was highly engaging, and the lifelong friends made are invaluable. I left the seminar revitalized with new visions to achieve. Thanks, Andrew! For anyone looking for an amazing executive coaching training program, you have found the best.
