Client Funnel

Picture clients come right to you. No marketing. No cold calls. No hassle. CareerPoint does all the legwork and matches you with coachees. Have someone in your network who wants to be coachees? You can add them to your client portal.

Mentor & Success Coach

Being guided through the coaching process and having regular check-ins with your success coach takes the stress out of certification. Program coordinators match you with practice clients, ensure you understand the coach portal, and provide tools to help you feel confident in the CareerPoint Employee Value Curve and Value Driver System.

Professional Development

We’re never finished learning even in our professional careers. The CareerPoint team wants you to continue growing your coaching skills. As the world changes, like the shift towards hybrid work, we need to help coachees pivot and address new challenges. Optional professional development resources and training will keep you feeling confident and up to date.

Coach Toolbox

The coaching dashboard has all the tools you need at your fingertips. With the dashboard, you’ll keep track of client notes, schedule appointments, and always have access to the coachee’s reports.

Curated Resources

Having the right piece of content to support your coachees makes coaching easier and more powerful. CareerPoint’s content creation team curates top content to match the needs of your coachees. If there isn’t a resource you want or need all you have to do is ask.

What our coaches have to say

Christy Talor

The coaching methodology is something I wish I’d understood when I was in management because I could’ve used it to coach my past employees around advancing in their own careers

Elana Paru

I used to say that my dream job was to serve as a guidance counselor for early professionals and thanks to my private coaching and consulting work combined with my CareerPoint coaching, my dream is becoming my reality.

Rachel Levy

As a coach, I have been inspired by the coachees who switch from thinking about leaving their jobs and realize how much they can offer their current company. They finish with a renewed energy and interest in showing their strengths to their colleagues and their managers.
