Twenty years ago coaching was a hot new trend, today it's the favorite tool for anyone who wants to hone their offering and get ahead.
According to the International Coaching Federation's (ICF) Global Coaching Client Study the average US coaching client is between 45 and 56 years old, has a master's degree and is looking for help improving their business, work/life balance and career opportunities.
Not only do these findings belie the notion that coaching is a new age hipster trend, but it shows that 66% of coaching clients are people reaching the middle of their careers. People who have their foot at the top of the ladder and are looking for a competitive advantage.
