Hear how Isla, accredited senior coach and master mentor overcame many challenges to set up a thriving coaching / mentoring / consultancy and training practice. Isla’s business is supported by her team of associates serving a wide range of international clients.
When asked ‘why is accreditation important’? Isla said “Credibility is key to giving clients the reassurance that their coach or mentor is properly trained , experienced and professionally accredited. Being committed to being good at what you do is not enough; you must be your best for the sake of your client. Therefore, demonstrating best practice is crucial for practitioners. You can achieve this is by keeping up to date with developments in your field, to stretch yourself through continual personal development, all of which is in the best interests of your clients. Being accredited helps to define excellence in a field where anyone can claim to be a coach or a mentor without demonstrating proficiency or skill”.
