Leadership Coaching Certificate

Remember that little league coach who taught you to “keep swinging”? Or what about the vocal coach who showed you that practice doesn’t make perfect, but perfect practice makes perfect? Or what about that college mentor in your life who might not have had the title of “coach” but certainly had the impact?

Let’s face it, a good coach can change your life. 

Are you ready to be that life-changing person for someone else? A Leadership Coaching Certificate from Huntington University is the ideal pathway for you to gain the coaching skills you need with the hands-on training that will set you up for success.
