You’ve read dozens of books,
listened to countless podcasts
and vision boarded your entire future.
You know you’re meant for something more.
You’ve got something special to share with the world.
You know you’re different. A real glow getter.
You’re ready to find your purpose, live it and get paid…
But you still haven’t found the right mentors, the most effective training
or the diverse learning environment you need to grow your business and your life.
Our 6-month coach training program provides high touch training for women identifying leaders. It’s a personal and professional development program for women who want to enhance their coaching skills, grow their personal brand and develop a next level business strategy. Coaching is a catalyst for profound change, and the power of coaching is a domino effect, first transforming the coach and then quickly rippling into relationships, families, businesses, communities and beyond. Coaches and female entrepreneurs need REAL leadership skills to be catalysts for change.
Real growth. Real joy. Real connections. Real impact. Real change.
IGC Coach Training offers 62 Approved Coach Specific Training Hours (ACSTH) from the International Coach Federation (ICF) and 10 ICF Mentor Coaching hours. The experience goes beyond a coach training program: it’s an actual life changing adventure, where you get the support of an entire community of coaches, mentors and entrepreneurs as you create the next version of you.
The #1 training company for coaches and entrepreneurs
There are thousands of life coaching certification programs available online and in-person. In a few minutes, you can go online and download a self-help program by Gabrielle Bernstein, Oprah or Brené Brown. There are courses, books and workshops being marketed to you on a daily basis. It can feel confusing and overwhelming, especially when many people who call themselves “coaches” aren’t actually credentialed or certified! By the way, the International Coach Federation (ICF) says the lack of credentials is the largest threat to the coaching industry right now.
What do you REALLY need to do this work?
IGC knows: REAL training, REAL certification and REAL business.Every successful life coach, business coach and leader must play two roles. First, the role of coach, where you are a guide, teacher and leader. Second, the role of business owner, where you show up as a founder and entrepreneur. In the early stages of our businesses, we often find ourselves taking on multiple roles, including COO, Marketing Director, Sales Manager and more!
As successful leaders and coaches, we’ve spent years taking polls, doing market research and having conversations with new coaches, entrepreneurs, wantrepreneurs and coaches to be. We wanted to understand why so many of our colleagues gave up after graduation and what made the difference for us. What did we find? More than half of business coaches, life coaches, health coaches and mindset coaches never fully launch their coaching businesses. Across the world, accredited coaches who have invested thousands in coach training and accreditation are still unable to bring their dreams to life. Why?
First, there’s an energetic gap that most trainings don’t address. Students are afraid of failing, unclear on where to start and overwhelmed by the big to-do of building a business. Second, there’s a lack of strategic business knowledge being shared in the coaching industry overall. Created by two professional coaches, one an entrepreneur and one an educator, IGC’s Coach Training addresses both the art of coaching and business. Focus and flow. Experience and results. Being and doing.
Our Coaching PHILOSOPHY
Founded in 2015, Inner Glow Circle’s coach training company was designed based on the International Coach Federation’s Core Competencies and Ethics. From this foundation, we also utilize two main modalities: strategic, experiential learning and the metaphysical study of ontological coaching.
Experiential learning is the process of learning through experience. By gaining experience in the field, we generate our own learnings, reflect on them and move forward based on our findings. Through testing, we find out what works for us and what doesn’t. We observe leaders we look up to and use their examples as inspiration, always creating our own version along the way.
Ontology is a metaphysical approach that addresses the nature of being. It asks us to take a look at who we are being in each moment. The mindset and manifestation work that’s become so popular in the self-help industry is actually based in science and serves as the foundation for our training. We work to rewire our neurology to positive thought patterns to be able to create the results we desire.
Destiny only works when we do! In order to grow into the coach and leader you are meant to be, you must learn how to show up powerfully for your clients, your career and your life, regardless of circumstances. IGC Coach Training teaches you how to access your highest level of being so you can create your coaching practice and evolve as a leader.
Included in your coach training is the IGC Mastermind. The Mastermind provides a safe, open sisterhood and live community for you to practice our core coaching concepts. There is also a separate forum for coach training students where you can connect and create around your new coach training insights.
We attract clients all over the globe, from all across the US to London, Italy, Australia, the Cayman Islands and beyond. Our coach training program is available from the comfort of your home or office so that we can connect internationally. The program is delivered through video conferencing, phone and online.

HEAR FROM OUR STUDENTS
“Coach training with IGC made me a better leader, and ultimately led me to create Poppy Row, my size inclusive clothing brand for women. So many women in IGC shared our Kickstarter and have become our clients! Due to coach training, my business feels more aligned than ever. I hadn’t expected such a monumental shift.
In a week, you can hop on a call to connect with your body, work on your marketing and get your money mindset in check. The online community is the most active I’ve ever seen. I am consistently impressed with the life-changing, deep conversations we are having. Coach Training is still one of the best investments I’ve made!
As a personal development devotee from a celebrity styling background, I knew I could go even deeper with my clients. I would invest in this training even for a lot more than I paid!”
“I had been working with clients in the nutrition counseling field for over 4 years, but something was missing. My training and education never touched on the coaching and connection piece. I knew there was something missing in my relationships with my clients, and myself.
With IGC’s Coach Training, I found the confidence, commitment, passion and determination to finally start my own online nutrition counseling business (a dream I have been considering for over 3 years)!! Thank you, Inner Glow Circle! You are my rock!
IGC’s programs offer an undeniable bond, structure, learning environment and place to grow in a sacred space with your peers. There are no judgments. No wrong opinions. There is always support where support is needed. Inner Glow Circle was the first time I ever truly decided to invest in myself, and I have never looked back.”

this is for you if
You’re itching to quit your boring AF job, start your own business and expand your impact. You just need the right support, accountability and resources to get there.
You 1000% know you want to be a life coach. You’ve researched program after program searching for the perfect fit and now, you’re here.
You can coach like nobody’s business but can’t sell enough packages, programs or digital products to make this work as a career. You need help scaling to your next level (and quick, to avoid burnout)!
You finished another life coach training or health coaching program, but need more business training. Knowing how to coach isn’t enough! You have to be a successful entrepreneur too.
You want to help people through your work, but you’re not sure whether to go to grad school (and wait 5 years) or take another path that you can start right now.
You’re a natural coach, but you need more training! Whether you’re a sales manager, yoga studio director or consultant, you want to take your ability to motivate others to the next level.
“I completed another ICF Accredited Coach Training program, many leadership trainings and have 10+ years of experience working with leaders, but it was my time with IGC, going through coach training and working in the Mastermind that actually brought me to the point of being a CEO.
My business is booming. I’m starting to grow my own team. I’m coaching leaders, helping 6-7 figure entrepreneurs scale, supporting new entrepreneurs as they escape corporate, training leaders and executives across the country and designing learning solutions.
I’m providing HR consulting solutions for startups and corporations. And I’m on the faculty at Northeastern and Columbia. I’m multi-passionate and I’m in love with what I’ve created. I couldn’t have done it without IGC.”
“The group of women I found through Inner Glow Circle’s coach training have been some of the most talented, beautiful and supportive ladies around. My views on female relationships have ABSOLUTELY changed. I no longer see us as competitors but as allies in our mutual climbs to the top of the world!!
Before this path began, my belief in authentic connections between women was dismal and very half hearted to say the least. I didn’t believe that there was a way we could offer each other support, without judgment and be authentic with our constructive feedback without sabotaging each other.
Thankfully that’s changed. I’ve been focusing on changing my mindset, my schedule, my life, my path all for better purposes. I’ve worked on moving completely out of ego and being free with where spirit guides me to go. It’s been an eye opening, reality-changing experience with Inner Glow Circle.”
“I researched several well-known coach training programs, and there was always something missing. When I found Inner Glow Circle, I finally figured out what I was looking for the entire time: a community of like-minded empowered women, driven by heart centered leadership and divine feminine intuition. This was exactly what my soul was yearning for!
Committing to IGC coach training was life changing. It gave me the opportunity to build my leadership skills and launch my own coaching business, but it goes way beyond that. IGC is a safe, sacred container that allowed me to grow and heal through the fears, obstacles and blocks that came up during my training.
It allowed me to dig deeper into my intuitive abilities and weave them into my coaching practice. It’s a place where I finally felt safe being all of me! Thank you IGC for creating this beautiful, sacred space, where women can grow, flourish and be in sisterhood with one another. I feel deeply blessed to be on this journey with you.”

Nope! Our coach training program is for women who want to coach–and don’t necessarily want to limit themselves to any specific niche or title. You see, we believe in the fundamental power of coaching and understand that this skill set is transferable. Therefore, we teach you all of the foundational coaching skills and you work with your trainer to specifically decide how to use these skills in the business you desire. For example, we’ve trained life coaches (of course!), business coaches, health/wellness coaches, executive coaches and career coaches. In addition, we’ve trained stylists, photographers, consultants, teachers, corporate trainers, counselors, therapists, and bloggers–just to name a few! Our in depth-training and generous amount of hours spent 1:1 with your trainer will allow you to specialize or branch out in whatever way you desire.
