There are plenty of people who are business coaches who have never been trained to be so.
Some of them are good. Some are great! Some are absolutely terrible.
Basically, its the same as anything else, really – if someone has been educated, then there’s an expectation that they should be better at a thing than someone who has not.
That said, I have completed training from three coaching schools, am certified in or completing certification for multiple disciplines, and I have a successful career in business to pair with my coaching.
I could not imagine attempting to coach without the training I’ve gotten.
