The Importance of Coaching Accreditation
Life coaching is becoming more and more a trend. Not only that the industry itself expands every year and touches geographical areas outside the high-developed West, but there is also an increased demand for coaching. However, the boom of coaches and coaches came with a drawback. Untrained professionals claiming to be coaches are putting in danger the image of this industry. And here comes the need of regulating bodies and codes of ethics.
Therefore, being a coach now requires a training, a certification and respect of a code of ethics. The 2016 ICF Global Coaching Study shows that in numbers. 73 % of coaches have received accreditation. The same study suggests that there is an increase to 6% of accredited coaches under the age of 35. Additionally, nearly two-thirds of younger coach practitioners (61%) view coaching as a profession as opposed to a skill set, and nearly half (48%) strongly agree people or organizations that use coaching should expect their coach to be credentialed.
