What people do after the PCC
A majority of graduates are actively involved in coaching people in some capacity.
- Many hold full-time jobs and coach people in their organizations or on the side
- Many start coaching practices, either as their main source of income or as part of a larger consulting practice
- Some do not take on coaching clients, but use the language and practices of coaching in their jobs and everyday lives
Most of our workshops are open to graduates as a way to continue developing their competence and participating in a community of coaches. These programs include:
Communities of practice
Graduates have access to a rich network of people and resources for ongoing learning and development. Many have joined—or started—a community of practice with fellow graduates. Examples of existing communities include book clubs, professional development circles, a case consultation group that meets by telephone, an Enneagram for Coaches study group, women’s circles, and an Integral Men’s group.
Making a living as an Integral Coach
Making a living through coaching means starting a client-based business. Graduates who succeed in starting and growing businesses typically possess not only competence in coaching, but also several additional attributes such as marketing skills, a good network of support, the ability to craft a powerful offer, effective pricing, organizational skills, and perseverance. It also helps to have a clearly identified niche. This typically grows out of a coaches’ existing network, coupled with issues or possibilities about which they are passionate. You may contact us for resources to support you in developing these skills.
