Why Do People Choose Coaches?
Some people seek help in working on a life change or a career change while others may need to begin a business or change the focus of their business; still others may want to improve specific job related skills. There are as many coaches as there are learning possibilities, performance possibilities, and quality of life possibilities. There are career coaches, transition coaches, life/personal coaches, executive coaches, sales coaches, small business coaches, organizational/corporate coaches – the list goes on and on. Coach University estimates that there are more than over 10,000 people actively coaching throughout the U.S., and over 250,000 people have gotten advice from a coach over the last ten years.
The bottom line is that people choose coaches to learn, to perform, or to improve their quality of life.
