Rising demand for executive coaching programs is helping to increase income potential for well trained, certified coaches according to Barbara Fagan, co-founder of Source Point Training (http://www.source pointtraining.com).
According to the 2012 ICF Global Coaching Study, revenues from professional coaching has nearly doubled over the past few years: globally to $1.9 billion, $707 million in North America alone. The same report shows that in North America the average annual income has risen to about $50,000 with median annual incomes at about $30,000. Industry trends also show that top-earners are now earning in excess of $65,000 a year.
"Rising demand is not only coming from corporations, but from individuals who want more productivity at the workplace and greater satisfaction from their work," says Fagan. "And the rise in demand is fueled by report after report that shows how effective professional executive coaching really is."
Fagan shares, "Many people ask me about Life Coaching and what the difference is from our designation at Source Point Training of Certified Professional Performance Coaches (CPPC). When studying with people like Dr. Covey, Larry Wilson, Lou Tice and the works of Peter Druker, I observed similarities in each of their philosophies in one key area - objective results."
At Source Point Training, we teach our coaches the ground of being performance coaches which is ontological. This means that as we are coaching on particular outcomes, we are also seeing all the inter-dependencies and what will change as a result of achieving a desired outcome.
"In order to be effective today, we cannot live our life in a set of compartments," says Fagan. "The way that our world is changing, we see the cross over between work, play, family, friends and business associates."
In Fundamentals and Mastery of Performance Coaching, we equip each participant with knowledge, skills and abilities to become a professional performance coach. Fagan is proud that the ICF has approved their curriculum for 141 CCE units. That’s more than most other coach training organizations.

There is a stronger case than ever for offering employee coaching in the workplace, according to new research conducted by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) based in the UK. The report, entitled “Taking the Temperature of Coaching,” highlights coaching as a cornerstone of high performance that focuses on the professional development of individual employees. "Coaching continues to be important in maintaining high performance and developing more agile employees, work practices and organizations [sic]," says Dr. John McGurk, adviser for learning and talent at CIPD.
“Companies with a coaching culture have a proven record of higher levels of employee engagement. Right now is a great time to develop these skills as competition for recruiting and retaining the best talent becomes more competitive as businesses recover and expand". Fagan shares, “We certify our coaches as Performance Coaches because we feel this is where coaching is headed - coaching higher levels of personal and professional performance.”
People who find themselves in a career transition and who have extensive life experiences in different fields see being a professional coach as a means to generate income and contribute to others. Medical and therapeutic practitioners, fitness trainers and physical therapists are taking up coaching to increase client progress. “This is a great time to become a professional coach,” Fagan adds.
Fagan will be hosting a live webinar on August 21st to answer more questions about coaching trends for today and how you might be a candidate to become a Certified Professional Performance Coach. She will conduct a real time coaching session with people who attend this session. You can join her presentation by registering at Source Point Training Webinars.
