We are grateful to our graduates for their kind words, which we hope will give you comfort that you are making a smart decision to join us…
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.

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.

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.

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).
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.
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.

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.
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.
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.

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.
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

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.

The tool-kits and resources provided are like everything else, outstanding.

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.
Managing Director, Accenture Strategy
Andrew is brilliant.

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.

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.

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!!!!
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.
HarperCollins Leadership Author | thoughtLEADERS Trainer | Executive Coach | Speaker | Wharton, Bain, CIA, CFPB alum
Andrew and the Center for Executive Coaching provide outstanding training! I am so glad I found CEC after looking extensively for the right program to learn how to coach. The breadth and depth of the tools and templates offered are fantastic. Andrew’s personal responsiveness is fantastic too. I can’t imagine a better training for executive coaching exists anywhere. I highly recommend it for anyone.
CEO of ZurickDavis, Inc.781-938-1975
Andrew’s Center for Executive Coaching runs a 4 day “boot camp” for future coaches several times a year, at which participants learn a lot about coaching and role play different coaching scenarios. Having participated in one of these sessions, I am qualified to say that it is an intense learning experience which is also inspiring, fun, and can lead to a cohort of fellow coaches with whom to practice coaching and get overall support from afterward. A valuable feature of Andrew’s sessions is the attention given to starting/running a coaching business, something not covered in most other coaching training programs. Once you complete a CEC program, you become a member for life and have access to resources going forward (such as online videos, case studies, reading materials, coaching tools, and telephonic classes). The CEC program has been accredited by the International Coaching Federation (ICF) and is approved for Board Certified Coaching training.
Andrew himself brings refreshing humility and humor to the sessions. It is eminently clear that Andrew knows coaching cold, and is eager to share his knowledge with others. He is a very straightforward, unpretentious person – easy to like and trust – and eager to bring real value to participants of CEC sessions. I would be happy to speak personally about Andrew and CEC, and can be reached at JeffZegas@ZurickDavis.com.

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.

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.

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.

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

After the 4 day intensive training, I came back with the tools and knowledge that I needed to help build my confidence as an internal leader coach in healthcare.

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.

Based on a recommendation of a colleague at Andeavor, I enrolled in the Center for Executive Coaching’s certification program. This program exceeded my expectations in every way: the program was fast-paced, engaging and relevant. I really appreciated the additional focus on building a coaching business and on assessments.

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.
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 are the real deal! If you’re looking for the ideal balance between training in the theory of coaching and practical tools and guidance from the ‘real’ world where results matter and you’ve got a business to build– look no further. The in-person seminar option was a great compliment to the teleclasses, which are also highly informative and educational. I looked at a lot of programs before selecting the CEC and haven’t regretted my decision for a moment since signing up.
Creating accountability and organizational alignment, while mitigating leadership challenges for organizations.
The Center for Executive Coaching’s certification program is the best training I have received in my professional career. The training is practical and applicable for anyone interested in becoming an executive coach. Each participant is also awarded access to an amazing toolkit, that will help guide the coach in a myriad of situations. Andrew’s style makes the training fun and fast paced. The three and a half days of training flew by. He also draws great participants from all over the United States and beyond. Andrew also has a strong desire to see all participants succeed and offers tremendous support that continues long beyond the training. I strongly recommend this training to anyone who coaches executives or other leaders.

I recently attended the executive coaching training provided by the Center for Executive Coaching. It was one of the best learning experiences I’ve had in my career. The content was relevant and the approach was pragmatic. Andrew is an effective and engaging facilitator / trainer. His approach of using breakout sessions to reinforce the learning objectives was very effective and gave me an opportunity to learn more about my fellow coaches. Another benefit of this is that you build a natural network of like-minded professionals. He also provides real-life case studies to illustrate the coaching process and its challenges. I highly recommend Andrew as a coach and his seminar on executive coaching!

Executives, athletes and highly driven students work with me when they are restless for more.
Andrew’s experience, knowledge and energy are worth the investment to the Center for Executive Coaching.

Andrew clearly presents his proven frameworks with a practical approach. His curation of the material is both energizing and valuable. His authenticity and care for his customers is refreshing. In the world of five star reviews, Andrew is the secret sixth star of excellence!
Innovation | Culture | Taking Action
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.

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’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.
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
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.
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.
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.

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

“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!

“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.”
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.”
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 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.”

“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.”

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.

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.”

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

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!

Executive and Leadership Coach ★ Organizational Development Consultant ★ Strategic Leadership & Foresight Advisor
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!

His dedication and desire to see other’s succeed is authentic and generous – a rare trait in today’s business and personal environment.
Andrew has an innate ability to see the space between the leaves – to challenge your conventional wisdom on one end to extend your own capacity and an intuitive capability to stretch you beyond your present circumstance. His transparent nature, affable personality and ‘patience of Job’ coupled with his quick dry humor are a joy to experience and a pleasure to be around.
You won’t find a better business mind, a more talented facilitator, mentor or a business advisor for your organization who can put more meat on the bone than Andrew. It’s my pleasure to call him my friend and confidant and indeed my pleasure to offer this recommendation on his behalf.
Certified Executive Coach, Thought Leader, Trusted Advisor, Solution Provider
“To experience Andrew Neitlich as a mentor, trainer, or coach, and/or a business and marketing guru is refreshing, unique and inspiring! If you are serious about becoming a coach, you would be remiss if you considered any organization other than The Center for Executive Coaching for certification and training. Andrew’s accessibility is second to none in the industry. His methodologies are proven and continually evolving for ‘best practice’ solutions and offerings. Affiliation with Andrew and The CEC is a win for me as an Executive Coach, it is a win for my clients with any problem on any scale, and therefore a win for the integrity and longevity of my business and professional future. Thanks Andrew!”
Peter A. Wolf, M.A., Sebastopol CA
“This is a full, rock-solid, rubber-hits-the-road training. Andrew Neitlich’s ability to nimbly combine depth from experience, to adapt approaches for a varied learning group, and to teach with generous sincerity is remarkable. Bring your best self to this training; others of your caliber (and to strive for) will likely be there. Work hard to give like you will be receiving. Afterward, look in the mirror. You’ll need a seatbelt and sunglasses.”
Four-Time Olympian, author, and speaker
“Having competed in four Olympic Games and experienced the best that coaching has to offer in the athletic arena, I know expert skills in this field when I see them. Andrew Neitlich, and his Center For Executive Coaching is unmatched. Andrew has the ability to take a multi-faceted situation and break it down into proven processes that can be brought directly to the field. It was obvious that every person who attended the seminar graduated armed and ready to implement our visions with Andrew’s proven processes. It was a true pleasure, and beyond a worthy investment, to take part in the Coaching program.”
CEO at Gardner Properties, LLC
“When I recently decided to train as an Executive coach/Business Advisor, I selected Andrew’s program at the Center for Executive Coaching (CEC). I’m not a big fan of academics and Andrew promised a Results Focused experience without the ‘fluff.’ Andrew has delivered 10 times more value through his program than I expected. His no-nonsense approach and frequent use of personal examples (failures and successes) has been truly transformative. What really sets him apart as the coach’s coach is his brilliant ability to frame even the most complex business processes in a clear succinct toolkit for his members to use or modify to suit their coaching style and requirements. I would highly recommend any of Andrew’s products and services to anyone who is serious about bottom line, nowhere to hide business coaching.”
Pamela Pappas MD, MD(H)
Wholehearted Doctoring, Founder/CEO
“I’ve just returned from an immersion in Andrew Neitlich’s Center for Executive Coaching live training, and am also part of his ongoing online seminars. It’s my great pleasure to recommend Andrew as a powerfully incisive, clear-thinking leader and trainer in the coaching world. Able to quickly perceive and explain the many moving parts of executive function, he’s created a wealth of succinct, usable frameworks and tools that produce positive results for leaders and their organizations. With high energy and dry wit, Andrew can move rapidly between paradigms — making his points clear no matter what your background. He’s as effective helping owners of billion dollar companies as he is with struggling nonprofits. He trains coaches to deal with whatever situations they might encounter in their specific areas, and calls things exactly like he sees them. If you’re ready for down-to-earth, truly useful substance, Andrew Neitlich is the real deal. I’m very grateful for his mentoring, and for the way he helps us all move towards excellence.”

HR Strategic Business Partner / Certified Executive Coach /Organizational Design Consultant / Communications Consultant
“I have just completed a four-day off-site Executive Coach Training Program with Andrew, and have to say it is one of the best programs I have ever attended. And believe me, as an HR Professional, I have attended many! There are many wonderful things that I could say about the program, but I’ll zero in on just two that brought me value. 1) Andrew understands that executives have very limited time to spare, and zero time for fluff coaching. The CEC program prides itself on value-focus, results-driven coaching; real results, real situations, real solutions. This approach is huge for me in my Consulting & Coaching business. It’s reality in today’s world, and Andrew has proven methods and tools that are spot on & Incredibly useful. 2) Andrew’s personal style and approach is awesome! As a leader and facilitator, he provides the right mix of support while giving you the freedom and opportunity to push yourself to the next level and really groom and grow your coaching skills. Andrew is very approachable and gives terrific guidance and invaluable business insight. His wealth of experience is unbelievable, and he is very open in sharing his experiences as learning opportunities for his CEC Coaches. Once you go through this program, you are a member for life, and therefore the learning opportunities never end. We also had many opportunities to work with fellow classmates to cultivate our skills, and that hands-on approach was extremely valuable to me.
I highly recommend anyone who is serious about pursuing Executive Coaching as a career to explore CEC and all the benefits you will gain from this top-notch organization.”

“I began working with Andrew at the Center for Executive Coaching and just completed his 4 day seminar for executive coaches. My expectations were surpassed. Andrew has a laser beam intensity that cuts through with a remarkable precision and insight. I left the seminar with enough ideas to keep me busy for a long time. Andrew brings such a wide range of tools to the table coupled with practical and organized action steps. The other participants in the seminar were top notch and the community aspect of the training was invaluable as we practiced our coaching with each other. I highly recommend Andrew’s program if you are serious about coaching.”
Service Excellence Strategist and Speaker, Certified Performance & Executive Coach, Lean Six Sigma Green Belt
“If only I could put into words just how much value the Center for Executive Coaching brings to all the coaches in his program, I would! I just came back from his last executive coaching conference and the investment is nothing compared to the value. His methods and toolkits are nothing short of brilliant! There are so many programs out there, and I guarantee that these are the best! This program delivers value beyond measure, and as an added bonus, you will have a partner for life! If you are contemplating it, stop thinking and just do it – you will be glad you did!”
Business and Professional Coach | Executive Coach
I decided to attend Center for Executive Coaching because after 13 years of successful coaching I was worried I was getting flat. I considered half a dozen programs before finally deciding on CEC because of its content and the strong endorsements from established professionals in the coaching business.
I was looking forward to this content but was blown away by Andrew the Coach. I’m old and bitter, and can clock a phony from across the county but Andrew is the real deal. He was the one that authentically helped me figure out the balance -not the difference- between me being a consultant and me being a coach.
Since my time getting certified, the support The Center has given me has been so applicable and useful that I have been overwhelmed at times, but Andrew himself has been very available for smart questions.
Executive Coach & Management Consultant
While researching Executive Coaching training options, I had high standards. My selected program needed proven coaching concepts and techniques, a robust toolkit promoting practical application, and insightful guidance from the owner both during and after my certification. Andrew Neitlich’s Center for Executive Coaching exceeded all my expectations. Andrew is a prolific author of multiple, extremely helpful books as well. I highly recommend Andrew!

is so far reaching. He can address almost any business issue that may surface. What I liked is that
Andrew is able to cut through all the noise and provide you with tangible strategies, frameworks
and training to get you on your feet fast as a coach. In addition, what makes this program stand
out is Andrew’s commitment to making himself available to help us individually should we
encounter any challenges that we are unsure of how to handle once we leave his session – he is
literally an email away. I highly recommend this course to anyone who is results focused – you
won’t be disappointed.
My interaction with Andrew through the Center for Executive Coaching was an enlightening
experience. He is an astute tutor and gives invaluable support towards attaining one’s goals. His
books are also a rich resource and are well structured for easy discernment. Being a foreign
participant he has been very helpful, making this process worthwhile and I applaud him for his
efforts. I look forward to maintaining my association with his organization.

Before signing up for Andrew’s executive coach certification program, I was toying with the idea
of starting my own consulting practice. I was considering other local coaching practices and
couldn’t be happier about picking Andrew’s program. I immediately saw the value – his program
focuses on teaching coaching methodologies and business development. The coaching
methodologies are very pragmatic and allowed me to hit the ground running. Since participating
in the program I have been able to help people develop their own insights to use their time more
strategically and consider different career paths. I am confident that Andrew’s approach to
coaching will help me succeed as I am starting my coaching and consulting practice. If you are

In only 6 months since I finished Andrew’s CEC program I have now earned my PCC Credential
and just signed my 3rd $50K+ company contract. I have also contracted with 5 individual clients
paying between $1500 and $2000 per month. I searched extensively before choosing the CEC
and found NO other program that offers the combination of exceptional, practical content, a
coaching toolbox my clients love, and branding and marketing content that has been THE key to
my success thus far. The only thing standing in the way of a $1M per year business is me!! The
cost and payment options were reasonable and affordable and the value is 10 to 20 times the cost.

walked away with so much more. The seminar was packed with interactive sessions where we
could practice our craft and were provided constructive feedback. Andrew is a true professional
and provided the participants with more than just knowledge and information, he also gave us the
confidence to start our own business and provided us the tools we needed to get started. Andrew
is so comfortable and confident in his process that he isn’t afraid to share what he knows and

Substance and Value. Andrew Neitlich delivers. Having recently completed the Center for Executive Coaching four day certification course, I could not have been more impressed with the course content and delivery provided by Andrew and his team. Whether you are coaching in private practice, in house with an organization or simply want to expand your professional development, the CEC course is the real deal. The four days consisted of a good balance of course material discussion, practical application of the material and follow-up evaluations.
It is clear that Andrew is not only a subject matter expert in business and executive coaching but has the practical experience to add a necessary “real life” element. He openly discussed where he has been successful and times when he had to rework an approach in order to gain traction. It was an honest, straight forward and refreshing approach. The course which I attended attracted very diverse group of international professionals from Fortune 500 corporations, top tier consulting firms and individual entrepreneurs.
I look forward to working with Andrew and the CEC team far into the future.

I am energized, confident and ready to move forward as an Executive Coach! Andrew and his team did a terrific job of providing excellent content and delivered the material in a straight forward, no nonsense way that I appreciated. Four days went by very quickly and we had the time to practice what we were learning, which was very meaningful.

I recommend this course to anybody who is serious about coaching and wants to learn from an expert. “
Catarina Mendess Executive | Leadership | Career | Coach | Consultant | Trainer | Facilitator
I have had the privilege of knowing Andrew while I was doing the Coach Master Toolkit Training.
I highly recommend Andrew’s training if you want to stand out as an executive coach and succeed in this complex, challenging and competitive world. He creates a safe, fun and engaging environment.
There are at least 3 compelling reasons to choose Andrew’s training:
1. Knowledge: he is one of the best well prepared trainers I have had in my life (including the time I was at college for my Legal degree). He is not only an expert as he is a natural born teacher. He makes it clear and easy to understand even the most complicated concepts. He has an astonishingly strong knowledge about the business world at large and the specifics of executive coaching.
2. Experience: his solid business background and consulting experience give us a deep perspective about the business world. He’s got a pragmatic, effective, clear approach with lots of amazing frameworks that helped me to create a robust toolkit.
3. Commitment: Andrew is deeply committed to support his student’s growth not only on the coaching perspective but also as persons. He makes an effort inside and outside the training setting to help coaches progress in their knowledge and experience. He really takes us beyond what we might believe is possible with a very honest, appreciative and consistent feedback.
3 words can summarize Andrew:
- Performance (he is excellent on helping us to focus on what really works, what is already tested and not the “fuzzy” stuff. He is truly a professional).
- Passion (since the first contact you can feel his passion for helping others and making a real difference in their lives. He is very good on dealing with different cultures and understanding different perspectives with respect and compassion).
- Purpose (he is much more than an outstanding leader, trainer or executive coach. He expresses his gifts in a humble way and serves others very well which made me always feel engaged and motivated to grow and learn more!)
Sandra Greens Founder at Handbags in the Boardroom
Andrew’s executive coaching program far exceeded my expectations. He provides a wide range of proven frameworks that work and my clients love. He is always available for advice – and has a direct no nonsense style which I really have appreciated. He not only wants every participant to become outstanding coaches, but he helps every step of the way with business development. He will only help if you ask for it – so you have to be willing to step up to the mark. He is extremely knowledgeable and willing to share his war stories as well as his successes. Despite having graduated last year – Andrew is more than happy to help with any issues / questions I have. It’s well worth the investment!
Marla Grant, Esq.s Optimizing results and peak performance for leaders
When I decided to become an Executive Coach, I extensively researched the many coach certification programs and am extremely grateful that I chose the Center for Executive Coaching. Andrew’s program offers the ideal combination of practical, content-rich materials geared towards achieving high impact results as well as regular opportunities to gain experience practicing coaching. With his humor, interpersonal insights and humble nature, Andrew creates a safe and fun learning environment. I also like how he not only shows us how to coach, but also how to develop a successful coaching business. His comprehensive and creative toolkits are full of valuable, useful content that will help us efficiently deliver substantial results. He makes a ton of helpful resources available, including himself. One thing I particularly admire about Andrew is that even though he has so much experience in this business, he is always encouraging us to create, innovate and try to make his approaches or the toolkits he provides even better. In addition to the distance learning program, I attended the live seminar and Andrew did a tremendous job making it and keeping it fun, full of meaningful content, interesting, engaging and very interactive and hands-on for all of the participants. I felt enriched, empowered, enlightened and inspired throughout the entire program and feel energized and well-equipped as I prepare to launch my coaching business.

He hits that “sweet spot” of a practical, efficient, no-fluff approach while maintaining authenticity and sensitivity to the interpersonal dimensions of leading effective organizations. His tool-kits for helping executives address challenges are thorough, relevant and user-friendly.
The value of Andrew’s courses go beyond the structured sessions. Once you sign on with Andrew, he stays available for follow-up questions and advice, and his on-line resources are always accessible. His last words at the in-person seminar I attended were: “Call me if you need anything. I take this seriously: I want to help you if I can.”

He gets me out of my comfort zone and is truly passionate about helping me get better. In addition, the relationships and network I have built and keep building with other trainees has changed my career: I feel strongly supported and connected. If you are looking for a theoretical and fuzzy executive program, then Andrew is not for you. But if you are looking for a result-driven, profound and fulfilling program, I highly recommend the Center for Executive Coaching.

The FL Executive Coaching live seminar was very good use of my time and investment for several reasons 1) My ability to take the use of the coaching tools to a higher level 2) To gain expert insight to challenges 3) New strategic contacts made. This program sets itself apart because it is so real world and the tools are excellent and actionable. Andrew genuinely has “skin in the game” when it comes to our success. My sincere thanks Andrew!

I did a ton of research on executive coaching certificate programs before signing up for Andrew’s Center for Executive Coaching program, and I am so glad I did. Many of the online programs you’ll find are shallow fluff, and Andrew’s program is the exact opposite: It is both wide in the number of issues he covers, and deep in the specific tools he equips you with as a program participant. He is full of great advice and resources, and his in-person workshop helped me develop my own coaching approaches in exciting and unexpected ways. I’m looking forward to continuing to learn via the online/conference calls program. On a more personal level, I’ve greatly enjoyed Andrew’s dry sense of humor and quick wit, which makes the learning experience even more pleasurable.
Michelle Gormans Marketing Technology Leader | Business Strategist | Leadership and Organizational Performance Coach
Being in the professional services field most of my career, I know that you don’t get far without being able to establish credibility right out of the gate. After taking a look at other programs, Andrew’s nowhere to hide approach hit home. He is fully committed to my success, doesn’t let me off the hook and in the course of four days of uninterrupted access to his experience and skills as a leader, trainer, coach and now mentor – I am a changed person. I would highly recommend Andrew as both an executive coach or an executive coach trainer – if you want results and are prepared to work, Andrew will deliver, and then some.
Karl Pisters President of The Coaching Group, Inc.
First of all, Andrew did not ask me to write this recommendation. I have worked with Andrew in his capacity of director of the Center for Executive Coaching (CEC). I entered the training for certification purposes after having been a coach for many years, thinking it would be a review, at best. The last nine months have been my most intense learning curve since graduate school and the best business decision of my career. The recommendations that he has made, both academically and business wise, have been right on target. He drills down and there is no fluff, and he does it in a self-deprecating way that results in pure learning. He pushes his students in a very skilled manner. My firm had the best year to date in 2014 and there is no question that is due to implementation of specific ideas and recommendations. His marketing states that he is always accessible via phone and email and that has proven true. Being part of the CEC continues to be a motivating part of my professional development and service delivery to my coaching clients.
Nicolette Willss Experienced Sales Professional at Cumulus Media
Choosing the Center for Executive Coaching (CEC) to advance my practice to the next level is the best professional career choice I have EVER made. After searching for a program comprised of practical applications with practical tools, high-caliber professional peers, and depth of content, I chose the CEC not only because it met these criteria but also because of Andrew’s direct approach and intrinsic drive to get results for CEC members and clients. In our first conversation, Andrew made it clear he is meticulously selective about both content and members, and this focus manifests throughout the entire process; from the first call to the in-person seminar. His no-nonsense style and wit make training sessions engaging and fun, and the quality of CEC members and instruction culminated into several transformational moments – including a key realization while attending the in-person seminar which realigned my coaching goals and niche focal points. That is what Andrew does best; he creates fertile environments for learning and growth where practical application collides with discovery and opportunity. If you are ready to invest in yourself and your practice and are willing to put the work into this rigorous, intensive program, follow the process, and remain open to new insights, there is no doubt you will leave with all of the tools needed to successfully coach executives and build a fruitful practice. I highly recommend Andrew and the Center for Executive Coaching!
Mark Freemantles Entrepreneur and Executive Coach
The difference in the Center for Executive Coaching (CEC) and other coaching programs is the real, “no-fluff” content, tools and ongoing support they provide to ensure your success as a coach. I was looking for a program with a proven coaching methodology, a teacher with real world coaching experience, and training that would allow me to provide measurable results to my clients. It was essential to me that the content have depth and provide me with the relevant skills and tools I needed to help seasoned executives. CEC provided all of this and more. Andrew is a master communicator who teaches with a unique combination of wit and intensity clearly conveying powerful coaching techniques and methodologies to his students.
Victoria Trabosh, CECs Author. Speaker. Certified Executive Coach. Philanthropist.
There are rare moments in any entrepreneur’s career when a myriad of issues and challenges can coalesce at the same time. I had that experience while attending the Center for Executive Coaching Certified Executive Coach Program in November 2013. I have worked as a full time executive coach for the last 10 years and this was the most valuable and effective program I have ever attended. It not only added geometric value to my coaching business, but to me as a coach. Andrew displays an uncanny ability to get to the heart of issues, model the process and then allow the class to immediately put into practice what they just watched and learned. Andrew’s wide breadth of knowledge, warm professional teaching style and ability to navigate a high energy and intelligent audience kept me focused and learning throughout the entire process.
If you didn’t get the idea to this point, this is an unsolicited and complete endorsement of the Center for Executive Coaching and Andrew’s work. If in the past you only had a hammer as your tool, everything looked like a nail. With resources, information, training, access to Andrew, and peers who are playing a high level game of success for themselves and their clients, you will leave with the tools necessary to build your biggest goals and the goals of your clients.
April H. Armstrong, APR, CEC, MCCTs HELPING LEADERS SUCCEED WITH THE “PEOPLE SIDE” OF SENSITIVE, HIGH-STAKES PROJECTS AND INITIATIVES
After four months of training with the Center for Executive Coaching (CEC), I just returned from a capstone seminar with CEC founder Andrew Neitlich, and a cohort of phenomenal executive coaches from around the world. I selected the CEC for my formal coach training for two reasons: (1) emphasis on helping clients measurably accelerate business results and (2) practical tools that can help executives and leaders at all levels immediately begin to improve performance – their own, and that of their organizations. I cannot recommend the CEC highly enough. The learning format is highly flexible yet rigorous; and the in-person seminar is invaluable, both in really ‘burning in’ the learning; and in meaningfully expanding one’s partnering network.
As a triathlete and a business executive myself, I know firsthand the difference expert coaching makes in both elevating and accelerating performance. I am looking forward to applying the tremendous toolset and additional expertise I have gained through the CEC with my clients who want to create sustained, high-performance organizations and cultures.
Brent Brady, MHA*, M.Div., MCCT, PCC, CEC, CTs Administrator (Organizational Development), Hospice Operations Executive & Consultant, Professional Certified Coach
As I write, I am two days removed from attending Andrew’s four-day Executive Coach Certification seminar. I wanted to take a moment to thank Andrew and share a few takeaways. First, Andrew makes this seminar. He is a very gifted coach trainer. His depth of insight, quick wit and love for coaches make long days pass too quickly. Second, the number of practical tools provided is amazing. In my experience, this is one thing that sets the Center for Executive Coaching apart; participants walk away with tools they will use every day to add value to clients. Third, being together with 20 high-capacity leaders heightens the learning. It is a safe place to hone coaching skills, think creatively and build collaborative relationships that will last long after the seminar ends. This seminar is unlike any I’ve ever attended. I’m grateful to Andrew for investing in coaches. I’m glad to be back in my office, with an expanding support network, and with the plans and tools that will take my coaching practice to the next level. Thanks Andrew.

When I decided to move my executive coaching skills to the next level I immediately knew that Andrew’s Center for Executive Coaching was the right place. Besides providing an excellent learning platform, Andrew continuously demonstrated his ability to bring structure and clarity in very complex leadership challenges, teaching me how to coach executives and their teams much more effectively. Moreover, Andrew keeps impressing me by his high integrity, punctuality, and high energy. Andrew is indeed a consummate professional.
Judy Brauns Principal, Braun Leadership Consulting
Andrew’s Center for Executive Coaching program is superb! The program is pragmatic, helpful and insightful. I researched many other programs to attend and am glad that I chose his program. I continue to find value in his insights, coaching and the cohorts he has created so we learn from each other. Excellent, value-added program.
Karen Klingbergs Certified Executive & Leadership Coach, Business Coach, Experienced Trainer and Facilitator, Bilingual
Andrew’s depth of knowledge and ability to share his expertise is outstanding. The tools and information that I have access to through CEC and ELEVATE are allowing me to position myself successfully as an executive and business coach and thanks to him and my involvement with the CEC I have a totally different outlook on the future of my business. Andrew is genuinely committed to the success of the people he works with and is very easy to reach out to. His feedback is always relevant, timely and challenging and it has made me stretch my thinking and move out of my comfort zone to think about ways to add more value to my coaching practice and help my clients get better results. Andrew is someone you want to keep close for a long time.
Randy Warrums Corporate Vice President – Learning & Organization Development
I first read Andrews book and was very impressed with the content. I took his workshop and found it to be a great value in my professional life. Andrew was able to help me by connecting me to a professional who could provide a business solution to something that we have been searching for two years to provide. Andrew is energetic and able to connect all levels. You won’t go wrong using him to help build you career.
Eric Briseboiss Président, spécialisé en coaching et formation en entreprise pour développement d’affaires
Andrew Neitlich is one of a kind!
This is the most powerful communicator I have ever met, he knows how to drive and when to listen. His wide experience in many fields makes him a solid stone to step on to make your business or yourself grow and go way further you could go alone. J.A. Barker said “A leader is someone you choose to follow in a place you would not go by yourself!” Well let me tell you that if you choose to follow Mister Andrew Neitlich you will discover things and places you couldn’t imagine they were existing. A true passionate leader, wonderful instructor and the best executive coach you could be with. Thank you Andrew for your generosity,
Jeff Millers President, Owner and Certified Business Coach at ActionCOACH
I have been associated with Andrew and the Center for Executive Coaching since February of 2012. After attending his certification workshop a few weeks ago, I can honestly say that it was a career altering experience. The content was presented with absolute clarity and logic, and the team interaction allowed for great learnings that I have already been able to apply to my coaching business and work with clients. The value received from my association with Andrew has surpassed all expectations. Both the program and Andrew has been an experience in concrete value, return on investment, and , true integrity. If you are thinking of joining the CEC, stop thinking and just do it.
Rick Albees ICF-Certified Career and Executive Coach
I recently spent four days with Andrew at his intensive executive coaching workshop. The ICF-accredited Center for Executive Coaching has been an incredible experience personally and professionally, and spending time with Andrew and other workshop participants heightened the value even more. I continue to be amazed at Andrew’s generosity and with how “right on” he is in his understanding of what it takes to be a great coach to people — executives, managers, and “front line.” More impressive is how he understands coaching from an entrepreneurial perspective. He makes you think about how NOT to simply offer a service, but to truly make a difference to clients. I highly recommend you read his books and consider attending CEC.
Phyllis Horton-Macks President PMack Enterprise Consulting | Certified Executive Coach | Change Management | Strategic Planning| Speaker
I have worked with Andrew for an extended period of time to achieve Executive Certification. Andrews’ approach to build Executive Coaches is exceptionally professional. I love his no frills business style of helping his clients. He helped me move through a point of stagnation in as little as 10 minutes. I can’t thank Andrew enough for the change he has made in me and the great results for my company.

Gavin Pommernelles EVP, Chief Human Resources Officer at Harte Hanks
Andrew has helped me to bring structure and methodology to my experience in coaching executives. The learning is highly interactive and includes a lot of practice with one’s own and other real examples which reinforces the concepts. It allows one to learn while gaining confidence in one’s own abilities. Andrew’s style through the program has been supportive and tough by giving constructive feedback and moving me forward to the next level of coaching complexity. He has been available for individual brainstorming throughout my time on the program. The guidance in marketing oneself as a coach as well as the connections I have developed with partners of Center for Executive Coaching and as fellow delegates has been invaluable. I have no hesitation in recommending Andrew for your own coaching development and as a highly impactful executive coach

Nicole Cutts, Ph.D., CEO, Cutts Consulting, LLCs Licensed Clinical Psychologist, Success Coach & Certified Executive Coach
Andrew is a consummate professional and I greatly admire him. I have learned so much from him and the work he does through the Center For Executive Coaching. Once I became a part of the CEC community it was like drinking from a fire hose! His work ethic, intelligence and integrity are very apparent. He is organized and thorough in all he delivers. He is an excellent teacher who lays out a solid learning plan and sticks to it. He is also generous with his time and available to his students. I highly recommend him and the Center for Executive Coaching!
April D. Schilpp, CECs Certified Executive Coach / Leadership, Organizational and Communications Consultant
When I was researching professional certification programs for leadership coaches, I knew I had found a home in Andrew’s Center as soon as I saw the word “results.” That’s not only what Andrew and the Center for Executive Coaching has provided for me and my business, that’s its key distinction from any other program I reviewed. His “special sauce” focuses on helping his clients continuously improve, measure their progress tangibly and ultimately achieve practical, focused outcomes, regard of their industry or aspirations. It was a no-brainer for me which program to choose from the beginning, and it was one of the best decisions I ever made.
From the moment I hired Andrew, I had access to a wealth of creative and useful materials that instantly made a real difference in how I worked with my clients (there’s that “results” word again!). I completed my certification through a focused seminar that was so dynamic and powerful, I am confident it will propel me to a new level I couldn’t even have imagined several months ago (and I’m pretty ambitious!). Thanks to Andrew and his unique approach, I not only have mastered new skills to coach my clients to success, but I also have tools that will help my coaching business grow. What’s more, I have ongoing access to a network of diverse yet like-minded professionals to support and challenge me along the way. I’m grateful Andrew shares his brilliance with the rest of us, and I’m even more glad I chose so well!
Jack Levitts Owner — Levitt Executive Advisors
I just returned from Andrew Neitlich’s Certification Program thru the Center for Executive Coaching (CEC). These three and a half days were among the most inspirational, motivational and educational of my entire career.
I have been a member of CEC for the last several months, participating in Andrew’s calls and constantly receiving benefit from my participation. Andrew has brilliantly packaged a comprehensive program for teaching the skills and behaviors needed to have a successful Executive Coaching practice. His books are easy to follow and his tools are very powerful, yet easy to use. But the true magic in this process is Andrew himself…he shares his experience and expertise in a very powerful and engaging manner that hits hard and is easy to understand. His program is not ‘fluff’ at all..it’s good, solid information that is delivered in a direct manner with a lot of real life examples to back it up.
One of the highlights of Andrew’s program is that when you are certified, you are not done..Andrew’s members are members for indefinitely…we can attend calls, reach out to Andrew for support, or continue to use the information on the member site as much as we’d like.
I look forward to an ongoing relationship with Andrew and the Center for Executive Coaching…and I would strongly recommend this program to any serious coach or person thinking about going into coaching.
Teri Cittermans Helps CEOs say what they’re really thinking to improve performance, engage employees and increase bottom-line results.
I’ve just attended the Center for Executive Coaching in-person training and feel energized and ready to take the Tech coaching world by storm. Andrew’s direct style and no-BS approach is why I chose this program, and I couldn’t have made a more solid decision.
Andrew’s training ingrains best practices into your make up, so they become second nature. I left feeling confident in my knowledge and abilities – so much so, that I can now claim the title as expert in my field. His approach is comprehensive and elegant. He breaks concepts down into simple, straightforward practical coaching.
In addition, Andrew is absolutely generous with his time, tools and resources and willing to lend support whenever needed. He’s constantly reminding us that he’s there to make sure we’re successful and is willing to stand by us in any way he can, well after we “complete” the program.
I feel I’ve become part of a supportive community of amazing coaches and am excited to see how the next phase of coaching unfolds.
Thanks so much Andrew!
Lindel James, Certified Executive Coaches Certified Executive Coach; Certified Sales Coach, Consultant & Trainer; Certified Guerrilla Marketing Coach, Consultant
Andrew’s training is very comprehensive and he is incredibly supportive. His knowledge and skill are superb and his eagerness to pass on this knowledge and assistance is much appreciated.
The fact that his classes are so interactive is of great value because it is when we learn and apply our new knowledge that we become proficient and ultimately experts in a field. Andrew is masterful at engaging participants as well as the facilitating the sessions. The content of the training in the all of his programs is broad and deep.
I have worked with coaching “gurus” in recent years, and I assure you that the training that Andrew Neitlich provides in his courses are “head and shoulders” above any of my past experiences and for a much lower, more reasonable investment. I am seeing the results of his programs already!
Can’t thank you enough, Andrew.
Bernice Boyden, SPHR, CEC,PCCs Executive Coach – Leadership Coach, Consultant and Speaker on the Topic of Leadership Influence & Effectiveness
It was with great pleasure that I recommend Andrew Neitlich to anyone that wishes to gain a greater knowledge in the Executive Coaching arena. His Executive Coaching Certification Program is excellent! I have completed several coaching programs, and Andrew’s is by far the most interactive, most valuable and complete program that I’ve seen. Not only is the information great, but Andrew is very accessible and eager to assist, which is price! Again, I highly recommend Andrew if you want real-world experience, knowledge and advice.
Sean Coffeys Senior Manager, Organizational Effectiveness
Last year I enrolled in Andrew’s Certified Executive Coach program through his Center for Executive Coaching. The program came highly recommended through the International Coach Federation. Before enrolling in the program, Andrew spent time with me walking me through the curriculum and answering any and all of my questions. By the time I enrolled, his enthusiasm had become contagious and I couldn’t wait to get started! The program was, by far, the best experience I have had in my coaching development. Andrew is an expert and the sessions are engaging, knowledge packed and incredibly informative. The tools that are provided, books, sample materials as well as the added benefit of Andrew’s expertise has undoubtedly made me a far superior Leadership and Executive Coach. My copy of his book, How to Coach Executives is literally falling apart from use! It is something I refer to daily in my work. I would recommend to anyone who wants to become an Executive Coach or to become a superior practitioner, contact Andrew immediately! AMAZING.
Carlos Merlas Managing Director at Merla Leadership Group
I highly recommend Andrew and the Center of Executive Coaching to anyone who has a desire to become an Executive Coach. Andrews’ in-person workshops and virtual webinars are simply the best. Highly interactive and bringing the value-add needed to learn how to coach executives. Through his Accredited Certified Coach training and his Master Certified Coach Trainer program I have been able to further develop skills and insights which enabled me to close engagements with Executives and bring up my credibility in the market-place.
Carroll d’Arcimoless Executive Coach
Andrew Neitlich is an exemplary executive coach, author and teacher who really knows what he’s talking about and is able to share his knowledge and expertise with those around him while constantly showing his high ethical values, his sense of humor, and his truly caring about others. He comes with my highest recommendation.
Kelly Lee Bennetts Elite High Performance Strategist and Coach, Executive Coach, Business Coach & Master Life Coach
Andrew is brilliant!! Seriously brilliant the least of which because he is a Harvard MBA with many years of coaching experience quite the contrary. I mean because he “gets it” he truly understands people and how to get the best out of them both his students and his clients. In short he is not stuck in academia or in flaky coaching methodology. He is serious about serving his students and his clients and getting results. He focuses not only on how to coach executives but on how to actually build your coaching practice! To my knowledge no other coaching program offers this? Both his clients and his students at the Center for Executive Coaching benefit from Andrew’s to the point, cut to the chase coaching and teaching style. Andrew’s humor drives the lessons home and help to make them even more real. I appreciate Andrew using real current live examples to teach and make his point and allow time for students to participate. I am so proud to be associated with the CEC, Andrew and the rest of my fellow colleagues at the CEC. I have gained so much learning from Andrew’s program and the opportunity to connect with the rest of the entire CEC’s alumni is fabulous for future learning and future business. Andrew not only walks the talk he is the real deal the total package, a class act and his program is top drawer.

After over 20 years as a nonprofit executive, I decided to investigate opportunities to transition into the coaching field. Andrew’s practical, yet highly substantive program along with his deep personal involvement and caring for each of his students has energized and focused me. He offers multiple pathways to succeed and his credibility and honest feedback serve as a guide. If you are considering moving into the coaching field, don’t hesitate to sign up for his course.

It is my pleasure to recommend Andrew Neitlich and the Center for Executive Coaching to any professional who is looking to add coaching to their business building toolbox. While I had participated and become certified through another coach training program before hiring Andrew, I must say that his attention to detail and full anticipation of my needs as a business owner was impeccable. He is very knowledgeable and well versed in all of the tenets of coaching. I love that he took the time to create toolkits and assessments to aid you in helping your clients reach results. And for those who need help establishing their practice as a business, his program also offers insight, instruction and strategy to build your business in addition to honing your coaching skills. I honestly wish I’d found Andrew and his program prior to beginning my coaching career because the Center for Executive Coaching is a one-stop shop for professionals, entrepreneurs and coaches who want to hone a skill that will shift the lives of others for years to come. If you are looking to get a coaching certification or continuing to develop your coaching skills through more advanced education, I wholehearted endorse and recommend Andrew and his coach training programs.

Dula Jamess Coach/Consultant/Advisor
I consider myself privileged to be associated with Andrew as a student of Executive and Career Coaching at his institute and to be mentored by him through his ‘no way to hide’ coaching approach. As an energetic, visionary and results-oriented teacher he has inspired me to broaden the scope of the coaching practice that I had originally set out to do, to seek to build a sustainable business and make a bigger contribution to society. He has a great wealth of knowledge of and experience in the coaching and marketing industry and I appreciate his openness and generosity in sharing this with others. Andrew’s unique ability to convert a vast amount of complex information into simple and elegant language and frameworks while keeping substance and depth provides a ‘turn-key’ suite of instruments for new coaches to implement in their practices. This also facilitates and accelerates understanding, application and learning, both for the coach and client. I value Andrew’s focus, persistence, patience and positive reinforcement while facilitating the classes. For me, this demonstrates that he truly walks the talk by standing for the person’s commitment and potential, which is one of the mindsets that an executive coach must have to succeed and provide value to their client. Thanks, Andrew, for upholding your students to high standards of performance and, most of all, for supporting us in becoming the best we can.
Rana Kabbaras HR Consultant at Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority
I was skeptical about joining the CEC when I first read about Andrew in the internet. I said it is too good to be true. In fact, I navigated the net and read about a lot of training and coaching certification providers. I was lost. I have decided to join Andrew’s program because this is exactly what I needed: Simple, practical and to the point program. I wished to get what I read and frankly, I got and am getting much more… Thank you for your professionalism and generosity.
Mary Carethers, CEO Innovation Connections Influence Executive Coach & Innovation Consultant for Innovation Leaders | 28 years P&G R&D. incl. R&D VP/12 years Exec.
Over the past several months have been enjoying Andrew’s Center For Executive Coaching Training Class and just recently attended the Executive Coach Certification program. Both have been of high and immediate value to me. I have received expert training in a very safe environment and Andrew has been very generous with his knowledge and time not only for the content but also for helping with current coaching problems. The tools and templates he provides are nothing short of fantastic. This class stands out from the rest due to 1) the easy to use tools/templates, 2) the extraordinary connections with other coaches, 3) the open and transparent teaching for executive coaching, but in addition and unique, for career coaching and importantly the key marketing aspects to have a successful business, 4) on-going support for years to come. I am so much more confident than just a few months ago, so much so I now have my first paying client and already putting the coaching tools and learning to use!! And with his coaching I recognize I have a much stronger base of potential clients than I originally thought to turbocharge my practice. I’m now certified through the Center for Executive Coaching. The learning has far exceeded my going in expectations and I’m energized and confident that I’m on a successful career path. Mary Carethers
Joan Verbonitz Panik, MBAs Vice President, Senior Human Resources Business Partner at Wells Fargo

Andrew Neitlich is a brilliant leader, executive coach, and mentor. In the Center for Executive Coaching, he shares his vast experience and insight with other professionals striving to become great coaches as well. The CEC is the premiere organization of its kind, and I am eternally grateful to Andrew for establishing it. Andrew has been invaluable in my project to expand my professional practice into the realm of executive coaching. He has helped me to develop my unique strengths and to market them to executives in search of solutions to their most pressing problems.
Zack Jourdans Associate Professor & Department Chair of IS & Management | Executive Coach
During the Center for Executive Coaching training, Andrew Neitlich provided brilliant, innovative, practical content that is on par with the top business schools, and he delivers the content in an engaging and humorous way. If that is all you received from the training, it would be well worth the trip to Sarasota, FL.
The value increased exponentially for me because of watching a master facilitator and trainer at work. You will learn so much about training professionals and facilitating teamwork among high functioning teams just by watching him. Additionally, seize the opportunity to let Andrew coach you in front of the class. He will help you have insights that will take you the next level of performance in your career.
In summary, I have spent well over $100,000 on training and education, and Andrew and the CEC provide a career and life changing experience like no other. It was the best investment that I have ever made.

Juliet Murphys In-Demand Career Coach to Fortune 500 Professionals ♦ Executive Coach ♦ Millennial Career Strategist ♦ WOW Resume Writer
When I was researching executive coaching programs I wanted to be sure that I found a program that was all about the client’s career success and not one that spent time asking clients meaning questions leading to nowhere. When I found Andrew, I knew that his style of coaching was exactly what I was looking for. Andrew’s approach is direct, no-nonsense and 100% results focused for the client and naturally the coach. Since I started in Andrew’s executive coaching program my confidence has increased exponentially and my business is growing. I attribute this to not only Andrew’s training but his strong emphasis on business development. He has given me so many ideas and tools for my business that I’ll be busy for a very long time with no shortage of new services to add to my business line. Even if you are a seasoned executive coach, I recommend your taking that extra step by joining the Center for Executive Coaching. You will realize your ROI with just one client.
Rick Albees ICF-Certified Career and Executive Coach
I enrolled in the Center for Executive Coaching in 2012 and have already found it to be an extremely worthwhile experience. Andrew displays a unique blend of styles – confident, accessible, eager, expert, curious and supportive, to name a few – all of which make the experience relevant for anyone wishing to pursue a career in coaching. I learn something new every day and look forward to completing the course in the months ahead. Thank you, Andrew.
Bob Canino, CEC, CCC, MCCTs Managing Principal at The Captree Group, Certified Executive and Career Coach
As an established coach and consultant, I was searching for a certification program that would advance my skills even further and allow me to tap into the expertise of other professionals beyond my comfortable circle. Andrew Neitlich and his centers for executive and career coaching provided these elements in spades. His extensive coaching experience, ICF affiliation, international network, and straight-forward teaching style raised my coaching skills to new heights. I researched all the top credentialing organizations and dollar-for-dollar you will not find a better value. More importantly, Andrew is a magnificent, engaging teacher chock full of real world experience backed by proprietary methodology. If you are dedicated to the coaching profession, want to avoid a cookie-cutter approach to learning, and be backed by a perpetual support system, I highly recommend Andrew and his programs.
Kiran Fakirs Director at Afri-market Products (Pty) Ltd
Andrew is a consummate professional, presenting key business and leadership concepts in an executive coaching context. His concepts are presented with practical tools and techniques that enable a practitioner to implement these within a short time period with demonstrable business and behavioral change results. He demonstrates that coaching services at all organizational levels can form a key building block in any organization’s change management intervention to achieve personal and organizational results.
Neil Pollocks Managing Director at ProcureTrade Pty Ltd
It is always exciting when you meet someone like Andrew. You know someone has an edge when a week later you are doing something differently and getting a result you never thought you would.
I have no hesitation to recommend Andrew. Andrew has a very refreshingly clear thinking approach to Business and Executive coaching.
He empowers the learner and skillfully applies coaching techniques throughout the course, how many people do you know that can keep a group of 20+ people enthralled for 4 days of intensive learning, without burning the learner out, but rather leaving the person feeling, “I am getting this”, “I am being empowered” or “For the first time I have value driven tools to help my client”.
Andrew is a very extraordinary person who never leaves you feeling inferior.
Angelo Kehayass Faculty Member and Supervisory Coach at SACAP
Andrew is an amazingly energetic and articulate trainer/coach who has a depth of knowledge I have rarely seen. His material and tools are extremely useful and applicable to a broad range of applications for me as a consultant and coach. It was an absolute pleasure to be part of an amazing experience with a group of superb individuals who are all leaders in their own right.
Roberta Fiore-Kittells Executive Coaching, Leadership and Team Development Expert
As a highly experienced coach I found tremendous value in working with Andrew and the Center for Executive Coaching. This program is one of the best I have attended. Andrew is very knowledgeable, delivers the program in a fast paced and practical manner, (the coaching tools are extremely valuable) and highly responsive to individual participant needs. Without a doubt he is exceptional at helping participants with marketing. I already have a full coaching practice but this program will allow me to take our firm to the next level.
Cynthia Samuelss Obsessed with helping business owners learn the TRUTH about Marketing and how to improve their hiring process.
I attended Andrew’s most recent Executive Coach Certification workshop and I was impressed with Andrew’s willingness to openly share his “wealth of knowledge,” frameworks and other tools with us so we can be successful. He has a straight-forward, no nonsense approach to his business with a soft heart underneath it all. Not only did Andrew share his “success tips” with us he also guided us through processes to build or sure up our business foundation — thank you Andrew for investing in us!
John M. Fulwider, Ph.D.s Managing Partner at Fulwider Macfee
Andrew’s Center for Executive Coaching certification program is an outstanding value. Andrew delivers on all the promises he makes. He really does offer as much one-on-one assistance as members like me want, via phone and email. He really does constantly add value with twice-weekly calls where he teaches coaching concepts and demonstrates how to market coaching services. He really wants to apply his considerable skill to helping members tune up their marketing collateral. So you’ve got the highly accessible personal touch, and then you have the mountains of quality printed reference materials he sends you, which I’ve got dog-eared and highlighted like crazy. Andrew is the real deal—I’m so glad I found him.
Diane Wian, ACCs Sales Manager | Certified Business Coach
Andrew’s course, The Center for Executive Coaching, is a great one for anyone seeking to sharpen and hone methods of engagement with executives and with their issues, at any level. The tools and methods Andrew has put together for the CEC course reflect his considerable experience, creativity and laser sharp solution orientation. Andrew’s keen desire to help clients move along to desired outcomes as efficiently and as effectively as possible is always at the forefront of his suggestions and proposals. Andrew’s ‘no fluff” approach is refreshing honesty and authenticity at its best.
Andrew freely shares templates and tools he has created, and when the situation calls for it, ably imparts wise counsel and/or asks laser sharp questions to help broaden a perspective. I appreciate what I learned in this course, and as a graduate, am grateful for access to updated tools and Andrew’s counsel for life! Thank you so much!
Skip Reynolds, MCCT, CECs Provides Simple Strategies for Remarkable Results in Leadership
I can’t express enough how much Andrew’s energy and authenticity has had an impact on me. He has a spirited quality that is both motivational and powerful that immediately draws people to his message. In all my years in the field of employee development and public speaking, I have only met a few people who can “light it up” with passion and compassion at the same time. Passion for what he believes in and compassion to share his knowledge so others can strive for their own success. He wears it all on his sleeve, and that is refreshing. Andrew’s commitment to the growth of others and his entrepreneurial spirit is both enlightening and uplifting. Andrew’s CEC program is packed with valuable information as well as practical experience and practice. This has to be the top program to get your own business up and running immediately. Thanks Andrew!

My goal in joining this program was to develop my skills in Leadership and Coaching; however, Andrew introduced a new “development” concept to me, Wow!

I was like Thank GOD! WOW I love you for that! great yet affordable!

Andrew instructed me as a student of the Center for Executive Coaching. Andrew’s guidance led to a promotion into management in my one Corporate Career, grew my other corporate career as a REALTOR into a global referral and consulting network, and guided my book launch and executive coaching practice to heights I never dreamed of. Without his leadership, I may still be in my hometown as an entry level employee with pent up passion and creativity that may have never gotten out. Andrew motivated me to channel my abilities in ways that have helped my community and expanded my boundaries into new levels I never thought possible. He offers more than just a certification, coaching, or guidance. He teaches what he knows in a responsible and empowering way unlike nothing I have ever experienced.
