What is a Niche Coaching Certification?
Niche coaching uses universal coaching principles alongside more targeted strategies based on what areas of life a client wants to improve. Coaching niches can include:
Some coaches also hone in on specific populations or age groups. For example, a life coach might focus on helping recent graduates find their first job, help retirees find purpose outside of their past employment or help empty-nesters embrace their next phase of life.
Getting a niche certification for your coaching business can help you more effectively market your services because you’re promoting a specific outcome they will achieve rather than just “coaching.” In fact, failing to choose a niche is one of the biggest mistakes new coaches make.
