The State of the Industry

Key Takeaways from the 2016 ICF Global Coaching Study

By Magdalena Mook, CEO and Executive Director, International Coach Federation.


In 2016, ICF commissioned its third global coaching study, conducted in partnership with PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP.

The 2016 ICF Global Coaching Study is the most extensive and ambitious industry research project to date, providing an updated picture of the coaching professional worldwide.

As more individuals and organisations realise the effectiveness of coaching in achieving their goals, the coaching profession itself continues to thrive in many ways.

The International Coach Federation (ICF) has been on the forefront of the industry for more than two decades, committing itself to understanding how coaches work and how coaching ultimately impacts individuals, businesses, relationships and overall quality of life.

The study captures detail from more than 15,000 professional coach practitioners and managers and leaders who use coaching skills, contributing valuable insights into a growing population on the coaching continuum.
