What is the Difference Between the “MEECO Designation” and
Other Industry “Awards”
1. The MEECO Designation is NOT an award. It is an earned DESIGNATION that must be renewed every two years.
2. Designation earners are audited each year for consistency in meeting the requirements and standards.
3. The MEECO designation is a recognition system presented from the MEECO Leadership Institute™, a research and think tank institute focusing on “employment sciences”™. It is not an association of coaches consisting of professionals who do not work mainly at the top of organizations, as well as career and life coaches.
4. MEECO has wider holistic views to evaluate success. MEECO stands for Measuring the Executive Coaching, Employee Experience, and/or the Corporate Culture in Organizations as tied to the ROI/ROA and ROE.
5. The MEECO designation is bestowed by a group of master level coaches and top business consultants—it is determined by a panel of independent judges. These judges are selected based on decades of experience in their fields and embody a diverse skill set by representing such fields as: the Human Capital expertise from one of the Big 4 Accounting firms; the head of coaching from one of the most respected Executive Outplacement/Leadership Consulting firms; and the founder of a large and highly successful coaching company and more.
6. Receiving this designation does not require that a member of the Association of Corporate Executive Coaches or a member of the MEECO Institute be employed by the applicant.
7. The MEECO Designation is emulated as the trend setter. Prior to 2015, other programs recognized outstanding organizational coaching initiatives.
In 2016 they have started to mimic the MEECO Designation as an award, in that they have added that they now: honor businesses and organizations with coaching programs that fulfill rigorous professional standards, address key strategic goals, shape organizational culture, and yield discernible and measurable positive impacts.
