Executive coaching is advisable for new executives as well as others who are new to leadership to take up for enhancement. These executives could be among those who are entrepreneurs for the first time owning their businesses, or could be working in a company, or working for the government, or in a non-profit or religious organizations.

Be aware that coaching clients are done by some past executives who are retired or unemployed even without the certificate. Anyhow, it is still advantageous to get the executive coaching certificate if you are planning to coach clients for some reasons.
The number one advantage which would make clients choose you over the other coaches would be your credibility because of your certificate. Considering that a good amount of money would be required when hiring an executive coach, clients would then want to make sure that they are investing their money in a proper way.

Others may have the opportunities to start coaching even before they got their certification because of the network in the business they have, or through other entrepreneurs and religious leaders, and they can at first offer free consultation before they offer coaching services for a fee.
