ICF Global Coaching Survey
Have a Voice in Coaching Research

The Global Coaching Study is commissioned by ICF and conducted by PwC. It’s based on a comprehensive survey of the coaching industry, and explores topics including industry size and revenue, the business and practice of coaching, and perspectives on industry trends.


For thirteen years, ICF and PwC have been partnering to conduct industry research on coaching in organizations and on coaching clients. To date, three Global coaching studies have been published and three Global Consumer Awareness studies.


The 2019 survey launched on May 31, 2019 and will be available to take through December 2019. You may also invite managers, leaders and coaching clients to participate in the survey.

Click here and have your voice heard in this important research.
You can also view an executive summary of the 2016 research on the
