The Scoop on Professional Coach Credentialing
Ten years ago most clients, corporate or individual, didn’t really ask about coaching certification. Having a certification might have been a slight competitive advantage but was by no means essential. The market has changed—on a number of fronts. According to a recent report published by the ICF in partnership with PricewaterhouseCoopers, it is estimated that there are almost 50,000 professional coaches worldwide. Today’s coaches come from a myriad of backgrounds and professions including human resources, business, law, teaching, psychology, ministry, counseling, and more. Coaching is not regulated by any U.S. states (yet), but the marketplace is increasingly demanding coaches who are professionally trained and credentialed, and who demonstrate a continuing commitment to professional development.
Read an overview about the professional coaching industry and the credentialing process in this “mini-whitepaper”. I’ve also recorded a few short videos to help explain the world of coach credentialing and the ICF process in particular. Hope this is helpful!
