Coaches who have obtained a certificate in one of the major international organisations seem to enjoy greater popularity. However, completing such a training does not in any way guarantee whether the coach will have customers or not. Chances are, that a coach with competences confirmed by an international certificate will be more effective (it is also a form of quality work guarantee for The client), but also the certificate gives the coach greater confidence in the process, usage of tools and in his contacts with the Coachee .
