  • 67 percent of global coach practitioners are women, with the highest concentrations in North America, Eastern Europe and Oceania

    54 percent of global clients are women

    66 percent of respondents are women who identify themselves as managers or leaders that use coaching skills

    The 2016 ICF Global Coaching Study is the third such industry research project commissioned by the International Coach Federation (ICF) to provide an up-to-date picture of the coaching profession worldwide.

    The study was conducted by PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP with a six-month survey period that began in July 2015. Available in nine languages, the survey was completed by 15,380 respondents from 137 countries, making it ICF’s most extensive industry research project to date.

    The 2016 study found that women make up the majority of global coach practitioners (67%), with North America (73%), Eastern Europe (70%) and Oceania (68%) reporting the highest percentages. Female coach practitioners were more likely than men to cite life, vision and enhancement (15%) and career (9%) as their main coaching specialty.

    Additionally, two-thirds (66%) of managers/leaders using coaching skills are female and 34% are male.
