How 5 Bridges Alumni Are Using Their Coach Training

People often ask what is needed to actually launch a coaching practice.

The answer varies from state to state, but for most, the bottom line is that once you have completed the legal checkoff list for your state, you simply need to be good at your craft.

Most of us don’t check the credentials on the wall of the massage therapist, we just go back if they help us out.

Bridges Coaching Life coach certification is designed to help you do just that – actually help people out! While there is a Next Level Training that Bridges offers (contact us if you want to know more), the first level course was designed to be one-stop shopping. You will have everything needed (skills-wise) to set up sessions that actually help people.

Here are a couple of shout outs to a few of our alumni and their organizations!

Barb Ranck – Your Clear Next Step and Courageously Imperfect

"Barb shared, Hi Cindy! My site is which stands for CI Coaching & Development. CI stands for Courageously Imperfect. It's a powerful perspective to take when coaching individuals and couples to lead themselves well! I have a mix of virtual programs and coaching, and I specialize in using the Enneagram as a tool for deep self-understanding. I am so very thankful to have been part of your program to be able to be doing what I am doing today. #DreamsBecomingGoals"

Eric Peoples – Professional Speaker, Executive Coach, Church Planter, Missions Developer

Eric on Bridges Coaching – "Bridges Coach training has given me a pathway to lead with curiosity. This mindset shift has allowed me to enjoy the journey of another person’s life, helping them toward the clarity they need. So, rather than feeling like I need to drive people to a certain outcome, I have learned to guide the conversation toward where the Holy Spirit is already leading them. Taking coach training offered me opportunities in Executive coaching that would not have been nearly as effective without Bridges Coaching."

Joshua Finley – Pastor, Speaker, Author, and Coach

Josh recently left this message Cindy: "Thank you for all your on-going coach training! We’ve been able to help scores of people with live and online training modules. We’ve also included it in our mastermind’s the most transformative part. This skillset has single-handedly blessed our family with tremendous additional income, vacations, missions trips, investments, and the pure joy of helping people gain real traction with their God-given dreams. I’ll be forever grateful for your investment in us."

Alex and Jodi Seidler – Missions Leaders, International Speakers, Life Coaches, and Organizational Strategists.

Alex said this about his training: "Helping numerous organizations with strategic leadership coaching and goal setting. 🙌🏻🙏🏻❤️🔥🌎 Our Global continued to add amazing team members, I have them get certified as well to make sure the coaching culture permeates everything we do."

And I saved the best for last. Our Bridges team!
