After running into an Empower Network blog by Justin Verrengia, I decided to check out the type of coaching out there and ran into the International Coaching Federation or the ICF.
Now, Justin Verrengia (aka, the Hippie Jedi) is not a member of the International Coaching Federation and for that matter, neither are most other Job Killing Coaches out there, but it’s for a good reason.
The International Coaching Federation is more coaching for larger businesses to increase productivity and maybe even income. Professional coaching can be used at any level of your business career.
The statistics that the International Coaching Federation have on their page are actually quite impressive and getting stats on other life coaches out there might be well worth it.
According to the ICF website, their coaches can help bring in “fresh perspectives”, enhance your decision making skills and increase confidence. They also say that if you use one of the coaches you should expect an improvement in productivity and satisfaction in life and work along with attaining relevant goals (Not sure what that specifically means….relevant to what?)
International Coaching Federation – Productivity Stats
The ICF has stats on their website pertaining to professional coaching.
Here are the stats which were found on: http://coachfederation.org/need/landing.cfm?ItemNumber=747 and were the result of an independent research study commissioned by the International Coaching Federation.
- 70% Improvement in Work Performance
- 61% Improved Business Management
- 57% Better Time Management
- 51% Improved Team Effectiveness
- 60% Better Self Confidence
- 73% Better Relationships
- 72% Better Communication Skills
- 67% Improved Work/Life Balance
- 86% claim they got their investment back
- 99% Satisfied wen hiring a coach
- 96% would hire a professional coach again
The International Coaching Federation has a whole page of case studies and industry report here.
My only issue with the stats is that some are related on just questioning the clients and I’m unsure of how scientifically valid they are.
What was the basis of “self confidence” and was a pre case study done prior to the collection of the final results?
Were all participants subject to the same conditions, same management, same scenarios (not likely) and were there other variables accounted for?
To me it looks as though a group of people were questioned prior to and after the case study. This would be ok, however, it is my belief that this type of approach would skew the results in favor of the International Coaching Federation because people were aware that they were being “watched”.
Being aware that you are being held accountable and “watched” will automatically increase productivity and when you increase productivity, your self esteem goes up.
So making these percentages look as though they are a result of the ICF is a bit misleading.
I’m willing to be a camera in the room would produce similar results, or even having associates hold one another accountable.
