How Does It Work?

Once you decide to become a W4C3 Coach, you're just a few steps away from being matched with your first client!

  1. Complete an application.
  2. Our administration team will review your application to make sure you have fulfilled the requirements for being one of our coaches. 
  3. If you meet the requirements, you will receive an email (be sure to whitelist [email protected]) letting you know you have been accepted and instructing you on next steps which includes paying your annual registration fee ($35).
  4. Once you complete your registration and we have all the materials we need, you will be activated as a coach.
  5. We match coaches and clients primarily based on time zone and availability. We do review the client's situation but most clients can work with any of our professionally trained coaches.
  6. When you are matched with a client, you and the client will receive an email that outlines contact information for both of you and has a copy of the client's application attached. You, as their coach, will also receive a copy of their intake questionnaire. 
  7. Within 48 hours of being matched, you will reach out to your client and set up your first session. Ideally, you'll also go ahead and set up the entire series of 12 sessions so that they can be on your client's calendar and yours as well before the dates re completely filled. 
  8. You will coach your client via phone or Skype (or some other phone or video conferencing platform). Please note that all W4C3 coaching sessions are conducted by phone/video calls.
