What is Financial Coaching?
We started with these fundamentals: defining financial coaching and providing a common set of standards and core competencies to ensure high quality, successful programs.
RAISE Texas Definition of Finacial Coaching: A client-driven process in which individuals and families work to reach personalized goals related to improving their financial well-being. Coaches should not provide expertise on their clients’ financial issues, but offer tools and resources, encouragement, and monitoring throughout the process of self-directed behavior change.
