WHO USES LIFE COACHING?

Three surveys of coaching clients conducted by the International Coach Foundation have found that people seek out life coaches to help with several core issues (ICF 1998, ICF 2004, ICF 2009).

  • Self confidence, time management and work/life balance are strong motivators for seeking coaching.
  • Career opportunities, business management and work performance are also core motivators.
  • Improving relationships, interpersonal and communication skills, and family dynamics are reasons people seek out coaching.
