Show Notes

Did you know that in 2016, you and I could be visiting over a cup of coffee and decide we wanted to be health & wellness coaches... then walk out the door and start calling ourselves a health & wellness coach? Or – a wellness company could hire nice people, put them in a call center with a script and then tell employers they offered health & wellness coaching. There were no standards. That all changed in 2017.

Welcome to the latest episode of the Catalyst Health, Wellness & Performance Coaching Podcast - today’s guest is Leigh-Ann Webster, the Executive Director of the National Board for Health & Wellness Coaching, or NBHWC, which brought standards of practice, a code of ethics and more to the world of health & wellness coaching. She is the only person in our 180 episode history to join us on 3 separate occasions. Yes – she – and the timely insights she has to share are that important.
