Why Choose the Quadrant 3 Leadership Coach Certification?

Cherian applied for the Quadrant 3 Leadership Coach certification to get better at building his team. This program was perfect for giving him the strategies to do that. It also helped him work through the differences and overlap of individual goals versus organizational goals.

“What’s so helpful about the Quadrant 3 Leadership Coach certification is the ability to say, ‘We’ve got to understand what these people are saying about themselves, how these people approach problems and challenges in their lives.’ This is the higher hardwiring…”

What was the process like? Were there surprises?

“The certification taught me that it’s…really understanding how to move from delivery or a deliverable… to a much broader relationship with a client that has that entire person in mind.”

“The certification really helps me to have conversations with clients, to be able to see that there’s the individual people that have their own self-talk and their goals, but then you have the organizations and its collective cultural self-talk and its goals, and how those are different. Working through those pieces has been really exciting for me in the last several months of really diving into what this looks like.”

Would you recommend people do the Quadrant 3 Leadership Coach Certification Program?

“I have already!”

“Now that I have learned this, I feel much more confident approaching the client relationship.”

“This coaching certification solidified, for me, the journey that I was already on.”
