2013 ICF Organizational Coaching Study
Much recent research points to coaching within businesses and organizations as a growing and evolving segment of the profession. The 2013 Organizational Coaching Study provides information and new insights about the value, effectiveness and impact of coaching.
ICF contracted the services of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP International Survey Unit (ISU) to undertake a Global Organizational Coaching Study designed to gather reliable, in-depth information from people within organizations who make decisions about coaching. The objectives of this important study were:
- To find out how coaching fits into organizational structures;
- To find out why the firm initiated coaching and discover if there are now specific criteria that trigger the use of coaching;
- To find out how coaching is defined within the organization and how the roles are defined;
- To find out the perceived pros and cons of different types of coaches;
- To ascertain the level of training, qualification and/or accreditation that organizations require of their internal coaches;
- To discuss the criteria that organizations use to identify the most suitable coaches;
- To ascertain how coaching decision-makers go about finding the most suitable coaches; and
- To find out how coaching is evaluated in organizations.
