International Coaching Federation coaching efficacy study

A study among survey of over 2,500 International Coach Federation (ICF) member coaches designed to assess their perception of their coaching outcomes was conducted by Grant and Zackon (2004). Overall, coaches report:

  • Improvement in self-awareness, goal-setting, life balance, stress, self-confidence, and self-discovery in over half of coaching clients.
  • Improvement in quality of life, communication skills, project completion, health or fitness, and relationship with supervisor and/or co-workers in over a third of clients.
  • Improved family relationship(s), energy, and increased income in many.

This 2003 online assessed data on credentialing, prior professional background, and current coach practice preferences. The greater majority of coaches had graduated from or had been enrolled in coach training program. Virtually all had a prior professional background.
