You will also be coached on how to leverage your circle of influence, the ILEC world recognized brand and how to become a recognized leadership executive coach in your local market.
ILEC is a virtual business and your franchise territory is not for a specific location; however, your physical location must be within your base state. You may leverage your circle of influence and market to and accept clients outside your base state; however, you may not participate in pro-active in-person marketing activities outside of your base state without prior approval. We generally will not place more than one ILEC Business per 250,000 population.
It depends on your efforts, how many clients you have and the services you provide. You can start charging for 3-12-month coaching engagements once you complete your training. You can also offer your clients game changing workshops, retreats, and proprietary ILEC online leadership programs.

This includes your franchise, training and marketing fees. As you learn more, our franchise disclosure document will break down the detail of the investment.
Our brand differentiators are unlike anything else in coaching today.

Upon completion of the ILEC training, franchisees will be prepared and confident to deliver the proprietary ILEC coaching experience. The ILEC franchise is a turnkey business with an established brand that can be launched day one without having to develop the systems that you need to attract and coach your clients. It takes more time for an individual business owner to establish themselves with the same brand recognition as an existing franchise system.
You can do either! A single license franchise allows one person to be certified as an ILEC coach. Under a single license you can bring in support to help with business development and administrative task. However, if you want to expand your coaching business you can explore a multi-unit license. As a multi-unit you can also build a support team to provide business development and administrative support to your coaches.
Consider this: a Gallup poll found only 18 percent of managers demonstrate a talent for managing and mentoring others – which means 82 percent of managers are not adept at leading people. This lack of leadership costs United States corporations up to $550 billion annually. This is where ILEC comes into play. This shocking gap in leadership development and demand for leadership coaching makes ILEC an excellent franchise for those who enjoy helping others succeed.
