Why Financial Coaching?

Financial Coaching is…

Why the FFC® Program?®

The FFC® program is a great fit for anyone who wants to become a Financial Coach, or use coaching skills in their work as an educator, counselor or planner. Whether you are starting your career or seeking to add to your professional skill set, this program can help you tie your financial content and client communication together to support your clients in creating healthy financial habits.

FFC® Building Blocks…

The Modules

Our program models the coaching relationship by meeting you where you are and supporting your professional development on your terms. You may already have a strong financial foundation and want to add coaching skills to your toolbox, or maybe you already hold a coaching certification and want financial-specific coaching training. Coaching is not a replacement for financial counseling or planning but a way of working with clients to support them in taking charge of their financial choices and implementing action plans.

Our training provides a clear process with a focus on mastery of coaching skills, allowing each individual to bring their own unique personality and expertise to the coaching relationship.
