Certified Behavioral Coach Award – Individuals
The demand for coaching is at an all time high. And this is not confined to sports.
In the last ten years the coaching industry has exploded. Membership of the International Coach Federation has more than tripled. A report by the market research firm IBISWorld at the end of 2014 said coaching is a $1 billion industry in the U.S. alone. [Marketplace]
The International Coach Federation, a nonprofit global professional organization of personal and business coaches, had just 1,500 members in 1999. By 2013, that number rose to more than 17,000 members across 132 chapters in 34 countries. Many coaches specialize in niche areas to attract clients looking to set specific goals. [work.chron.com]
