Earning WABC’s Chartered Business Coach® (ChBC®) involved the opportunity to consider my practice in a safe physical and mental space where I could take stock of my life and explore my agenda. This is a crucial aspect of a leadership development program that incorporates self-discovery principles while capturing emerging awareness. The combination of thorough research, theory linked to practice and a reiterative writing process deeply reinforced my bridge-builder identity in various disciplines (coaching, consulting, counseling and psychoanalysis) and my identity as a business coach able to deal with change at both personal and organizational levels. Even more, the ChBC® process offers a virtual work-based learning methodology that is at the forefront of adult learning and now, more than ever before, this is a strength of this credential.
WABC’s ChBC® grants clients that I have the specialized expertise and knowledge required to be at the pinnacle of my profession. The re-certification process every five years also allows coaches to demonstrate they have kept their learning and practice up to date.
