#Accredited August 8

Coach4aday blog posts are ideas that are shared to help people grow and learn. Would love for you to consider following the blog with one of the like buttons. You can follow by email at bottom right of post.

My twitter handle is @coach4aday2 if you want to follow the blog that way.

Each year the blog takes on a different focus. In 2019 the goal is for each post to bring you the reader a lesson, quote, message, or story that can help you grow.


Just left Radford University yesterday after doing a Coach4aday leadership presentation for thirty talented leaders.

RAD Group Picture


Radford University is ACCREDITED by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) to award associate, baccalaureate, masters, specialist, and doctorate degrees.

In essence when a school, college, or university has been ACCREDITED it a former of quality control for students and the public.

Often times there will be confusion between ACCREDITED, license, and certification.

Came across a great blog called Council on Accreditation Blog. They had a great post on this topic

Here are the differences and similarities


Accreditation is both a process and a credential

The accreditation process is voluntary

Only organizations, agencies, or programs can be accredited

If an organization is accredited this means they conducted a thorough self-assessment and compared themselves to recognized standards of best practice. Accreditation means that the organization, agency, or program was able to demonstrate evidence of implementation to all of the relevant standards. It is a rigorous process conducted by a third party organization.


Licensing exists primarily for public safety and the well-being of consumers

Typically, licensing is involuntary

Individuals, facilities, programs, organizations or agencies can be licensed

Individuals are often licensed by their respective state to practice counseling, social work, or nursing.


Certification demonstrates the capability to provide a specialized service or particular program.
Typically, certification is voluntary, but sometimes regulatory bodies require certification in order to provide a specific service

Individuals, facilities, programs, organizations or agencies can obtain certification

Certifications at the organizational level can definitely vary, including the terminology.

As I drove away yesterday I realized that the journey of leadership is like the process of becoming  ACCREDITED. To grow as a leader you have to go thru a self-assessment to see if you meet the standards of best practices. The subtle difference is we serve as the accrediting agency using our integrity and commitment to grow as a leader. We get to do the accreditation not anyone else.

The group I was with yesterday dubbed Team RAD is well on there way to being ACCREDITED.
