Why Coaching Certification

Globally executive and business coaching has soared to become a $10-billion industry thanks to waves of uncertainties and disruption precipitated by rapid development in technology, rise of millennium workforce, globalization and rise of China. With command-and-control management style giving way to highly participative and empowering leadership, and best-known-methods to agile and adaptive learning, coaching will continue to gain appeal because it works for a VUCA world, intensified only by the 2020 Covid pandemic: Coaching deals with employee engagement, growth, creativity and achievement by removing roadblocks to development and performance as no other development tool.

In this context of coaching skills being a new currency for the 21st century workforce and a coaching approach or culture far transcending the needs of executives, coaching has been rated the top desired skill for front-line managers (Chief Learning Officer Magazine), and the demand for trained coaches operating both internally and externally has fueled the need for coaching certification programs. In the US alone, there are more than 200 coach certification programs, which helps make becoming a certified coach one of the most popular career shifts in the last decade.

What does ACSTH stand for?

Program Overview

Our MMS ACSTH Leader as Coach is a 4-month intensive virtual ACSTH program. This program teaches masterful executive coaching, using the original MMS coaching methodology, coupled with the ICF Core Competencies, with the addition of the executive coaching context/ framework.

The approach is based on these 3 key assumptions:

  1. People have an “Inner Knowing” regarding what is right for them
  2. People possess the inner resources to manifest what they want in their lives
  3. People and organizations can have their lives be the way they truly want them.


Our TECC provides over 66 ICF-accredited training hours and presents 18 3-hour modules. There are also 10 mentoring sessions included (7 in group setting and 3 individual), along with a 6-month subscription to the Learning Management System with additional coaching videos by Dr. Carter-Scott. Supporting documents and videos will be accessible on our e-learning platform. After this training and the completion of 100 coaching hours, the candidate is then eligible to take the CKA (Coach Knowledge Assessment) Exam in order to receive their Level 1 Associate Certified Coach (ACC).

Benefits of Participation

  • “Safety and Permission” are the cornerstones of our training methods. Integrity, ethics, and confidentiality are the essence of who we are over a period of 4 months.

  • Designed for the professional who has limited time and desires maximum results, you get live Webinars – minimum time away from corporate leadership with focused and time-proven training techniques to produce optimal outcomes.

  • Customized for international and local professionals, differing styles, beliefs, attitudes, and behaviors are addressed to work most effectively in both East/West paradigms.
