The 2012 ICF Global Coaching Study found six in ten coaches experienced an increase in clients over the previous 12 months and that trend in the demand for coaches is expected to continue. According to the study, the biggest obstacle facing the coaching industry in the future is untrained individuals. "It is important that a client trust their coach and believe that individual is invested in their future. A certification from an accredited program may help job seekers in their selection of a career coach," says, Susan Whitcomb, founder of The Academies.
While the Certified Career Management Coach program is perfectly appropriate for people with little or no experience in the coaching/careers fields, it also attracts experienced professionals says Lyndsey Lehman, Vice President of Operations. Lehman explains, "The program is very comprehensive - teaching everything a coach needs to know in terms of coaching skills AND career management. Plus, it offers many opportunities to practice coaching in the class and receive live feedback from the instructor, which is priceless."
