The Global Coaching Study is commissioned by ICF and conducted by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC). The study is based on a comprehensive survey of the coaching industry, and explores topics including industry size and revenue, the business and practice of coaching, and perspectives on industry trends.
The 2020 ICF Global Coaching Study (GCS) quantifies the size and value of the coaching industry worldwide and by region. The study was designed to engage with as many coach practitioners and managers/leaders using coaching skills as possible to provide an up-to-date picture of the coaching profession and empower coaches to embrace the opportunities and meet the challenges ahead.
The Executive Summary and Final Report for the 2020 GCS are now available.
Download the Executive Summary for free below. The Final Report is available to ICF Members for $95 USD. The price for non-ICF Members is $295 USD.
Because the survey for the 2020 Global Coaching Study closed right before COVID-19 changed the world forever, that research represents a new benchmark for us – the last global survey of the coaching industry conducted entirely before the dramatic changes COVID-19 has made to how we live and work.
To understand the initial impact of these changes on the coaching industry, ICF commissioned COVID-19 and the Coaching Industry, a snapshot survey designed to assess the impact of the pandemic on the coaching industry worldwide.
The results of COVID-19 and the Coaching Industry are available now.
To continue gauging the impact of COVID-19 on the coaching industry, ICF commissioned another snapshot survey, 2020 COVID-19 and the Coaching Industry. Learn more about that the results of the initial snapshot survey and to participate in the 2020 survey, click the buttons below.
