“I don’t have enough time.” I often hear this roadblock from people who are hesitant to commit to coach training, graduate school, or some other development program.
As an Admissions Coach at iPEC, I speak with social workers and therapists who tell me that their patients often come to them during a time of great need or struggle. Often, they are battling depression, addiction, or trauma. In some ways, they’re coming from a non-functional place, and your goal is to help them become functional again.

One of the biggest misconceptions I hear from people when they are considering enrolling in the iPEC Coach Training Program is that they’ll need to quit their job in order to have the time to complete it.
