Certification for Professionals in Asia Pacific & Greater China


Center for Executive Coaching

The Center for Executive Coaching is the leading coaching training & certification company for professionals seeking success as coaches to leaders, executives, managers, and up-and-coming talent — especially in dynamic and complex organizations. We have trained over 2,000 coaches in 32 countries, and now give our members license to use our complete toolkit of two dozen, best practice coaching frameworks. Most coach training programs are not equipped to teach the realities of the market and how to develop solutions that get practical, measurable results for clients. The Center for Executive Coaching is the exception. We are fully accredited with the International Coach Federation as an ACTP, and we also provide training for those who want the Board Certified Coach certification.

Thanks to Dr. Carmen for making this a very lovely and practical training. She always came prepared and has been engaging throughout our time together, holding us accountable and giving us relevant assignments. I also made some very good friends along the way. This is a lifelong commitment to invest in ourselves and also to benefit others through coaching.

I know I have made the right choice and this is a life-long decision. I am confident that with the learning today, I will make a lot of difference moving forward.

Johnson Kao

President at Standard Fiber (China), Shanghai

I got so much out of this training I don't even know where to start. Let me highlight three things: First , I’m so new to coaching that it has always been something so new and hard for me. Now the training has demystified the whole thing. I now know there is a process and steps to follow. This training has given us so many tools that we can use in different situations. Very powerful indeed. Second, I have experienced coaching and that’s life changing. Now when I learn how to coach and use the tools, I see the impact in coaching even just for 10 minutes. If I continue to coach people on a consistent basis, imagine how many people I can impact and touch. Third, this really gives burned-out senior executives, like me, a new and clear roadmap on how to move forward and what to do. Now I have a new purpose. I can use the tools and skills and my experience to help people inside the company, and friends outside.

Joyce Yang

Executive Coach, Singapore

Thank you Dr.Carmen for host this training. I am now more convinced than ever that coaching is impactful. I have experienced first hand that the more we do coaching, the more energy we will gain. When we are energetic, our clients will be energetic as well. Another thing I really enjoy is the diversity that we have among our group. We have different backgrounds. We come from different countries. But it seems like we have known each other for quite a long time. It has been an amazing 3 days. The member area is a treasure chest. I will keep on digging from it.

Joy Hsu

Consultant, Shanghai

Coaching is amazing! I have fallen in love with coaching. I don’t want to be a consultant anymore, I want to be a coach from now on.
