So You Want to be a Career Coach: the UK's top Career Coach's Guide to Becoming a Coach

An E-Book by Ros Toynbee

Every month I get calls and emails from people just like you wanting to become a career or life coach. They ask me how I got into it, whether I'd recommend it, and how can they embark on the journey of becoming one.

If you're thinking of becoming a coach, then this e-book is a must-read for you.

The coaching profession is both saturated and unregulated, and it's essential that anyone going into this new and growing profession goes in with their eyes wide open. This e-book is a 'warts-and-all' view, a personal view, of what it's really like to be a coach today.

In So You Want to be a Career Coach, you'll discover:

- my story: how I, Ros Toynbee, Director of the Career Coach went from a career in law and broadcasting, to becoming an internal coach for the BBC and number 1 in Google for career coaching, plus my tips for making your background work for you

- the pros and cons of being an coach, whether you want to be an internal coach for your company, an independent coach or a coaching associate for a coaching company

- what you can expect to make financially per year if you work as a coach (it varies as to whether you are a life, a career, or an executive coach)

- whether you're suited to being a coach, and especially the business side of coaching (or not)

- the trends of the coaching profession and how they are shaping the way that coaches work and market themselves

- further resources including information on how to find the right coach training for you, coaching associations, useful books on how to make a living from coaching, finding your first mentor coach, accreditation, and more

This 21 page pdf is packed with relevant and timely information, which up until now hasn't been isn't readily available (as far as I know) in one easy place.

My intention in writing this guide is to not only save you a lot of time and energy doing this research for yourself, I hope it'll give you clarity about whether coaching as a full time career really is right for you. Even if it turns out it isn't for you, there's ideas for how you can still use coaching skills in other ways, or how you can use the services of a career coach to help you identify what your right livelihood would be.

P.S. So You Want to be a Career Coach is also suitable if you're interested in general life - or leadership and management - coaching. The E-Book includes information that is still extremely valuable for you to know, and sets out the most recent ICF and Meyler Campbell studies on what life and leadership coaches earn too.
