3 Trends That Are Redefining The Coaching Industry

3 Trends That Are Redefining The Coaching IndustryThe Coaching industry has topped $1 billion and is expected to have a yearly average growth rate of 6.7% through 2022 (MarketResearch.com). This growth provides a powerful new opportunity for Leadership Development Experts.

According to a recent article in Forbes Magazine:

As the executive coaching industry continues to grow, so does the number of ways in which this niche is going to change in the not-so-distant future.

  • Coaching will overtake Consulting
  • Working with a coach will be the norm, especially for those wishing to propel themselves further and faster
  • Coaching will no longer be just for the elite, but used more commonly at all levels of an organization
  • Experienced coaches will gain prominence and be in high demand

To catch this wave, it is essential to FOCUS your coaching practice on these 3 key areas:

  1. Digitalization: In-person coaching and training is disappearing. Be prepared to diversify delivery methods to remain valuable and relevant through on-line micro-learning sessions, webinars and digital coaching.
  1. Laser-sharp Focus on Interpersonal Skills: With all the emphasis on AI, robotics and machine learning, most of the work done by human beings will require strong interpersonal skills and emotional intelligence. Organizations are placing a premium on those skills. The ability to build mutually accountable relationships quickly will be paramount to success. Coaches who can effectively help people learn and apply these skills will prevail.
  1. Deliver Measurable Results: Time frames for both short- and long-term results will be tighter. Proven strategies will be in great demand. This makes pre- and post- assessments, structured feedback and other tools to quantify outcomes imperative.
