Yes and it’s worth it so long as it’s paid for

How much is typically the cost

Accenture will pay for it - just search my learning

Did it as part of a client engagement. Pretty pointless, with a test that can’t be failed. Free credentials are free credentials, though.

I’m sure it’s technically possible to fail, but think of driver license written test.

I did it because I needed a certification as a prerequisite to get promoted. It was sorta useful since we use a hybrid version of scrum for our projects. So I would say it depends on your situation to determine how useful it would be.

So I am planning on leaving ACN soon like in a month and I want to get the cert and refresher before I start my new role. There’s a possibility of it coming in handy. So idk if I can or should get ACN to pay for it. I am okay with paying out of pocket if it’s few hundred and not few thousands.

Thank you I’ll look into it!

I have been researching coaching programs and really want to do it but can’t decide if I should go with a 3k program or a typical 10k program that are recommended by man like Ipec or co active. The 3k is also nice in that it’s a 4 day intensive / full days to get you the hours for ICF ACC certification. It’s with the academy of creative coaching- I haven’t heard a ton about them but the only one I can find to get your all the requirements for under $4k. Any thoughts on those options? Or Academy?

I adopted a dog early in 2021 when I was a biglaw M&A associate. From the start, he was always under my desk when I was working and sat as close to me as possible. He was a little doggie doughnut sleeping on my feet. This went on every day for 11 months until I went in house. Nothing else has changed, but since going in house, my dog doesn’t sit in my office anymore. In hindsight, I understand now that he was comforting me because he knew I was so stressed. Dogs are amazing. That is all. ✌🏻🐶
