The Best School of Coaching in the World

Updated on November 5, 2015

School of Coaching

What's the best school of coaching in the world? That's like asking what restaurant serves the best burger in the world. It's a very subjective question, and there will be many different answers and many different opinions.

Where's The List of Best Coaching Schools?

You could try to compile a list of the best schools of coaching. You could gather information from the Internet and try to rank the schools. But, would that be a valuable use of your time? Probably not. Because this is such a subjective topic, determining the best school of coaching, and trying to make a list is just a pure waste of time.

Find the Best School of Coaching for You

Finding the best school of coaching for you is not really about making a list or ranking all the coaching schools in the world, it's about looking for a few important and specific attributes and making sure the school's philosophy and style fits your needs.

How to Find the Best Coaching School for You

Here are 7 keys to finding the right school of coaching for your needs:

  1. Specialty. Does the school specialize in the type of coaching you want? Do you want to become an executive coach? If so, look for a school which specializes in executive coaching. Whatever specialty you are interested in, look for a school which offer that specialty as part of their curriculum.
  2. Experience. Though experience and the number of years in business doesn't count for everything, it does count. A school's experience and history can provide you with a good picture of what they can offer you.
  3. Reputation. It is crucial to search the Internet and speak with others to find out a school's reputation. A good reputation is one of the most important considerations when choosing a coaching program.
  4. Budget v. Costs. This can be a difficult decision for some people. If you don't have much to spend, should you just go with the cheapest? Or, does a higher price mean better instruction? Though there may be some correlation between price and quality, price does not guarantee high quality.
  5. Coaching philosophy. Every coaching school will provide a description of their coaching philosophy - even if they don't call it ā€œphilosophy.ā€ It's usually in the words they use to describe their vision and how they teach.
  6. Training hours. Comparing training hours across various coaching schools may give you an idea if you are going to get your money's worth. The hours should include both live and online training.
  7. Quality. This is the most subjective aspect of a very subjective subject. The program should offer a broad curriculum, and its timeline should allow for sufficient time to learn and integrate the skills and knowledge taught in the classes.
  8. Business education. Does the school of coaching teach you about starting and running a business? This is not a deal breaker, but knowledge about how to run a coaching business can be invaluable, and help you succeed in a competitive industry.
