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."
As a result, many coaches who either did not attend a formal foundational coach training with an ICF approved training organization or have taken some time away from coaching, are now seeing the growing demand and taking action to refresh and enhance their coaching skills.
"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)," says Fagan. "When studying with people like Dr. Covey, Larry Wilson, Lou Tice and the works of Peter Druker, I observe similarities in each of their philosophies in one key area - objective results. Our coaches focus on "performance" that generates "results," Fagan continues.
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 interdependences 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 more and more the cross over between work, play, family, friends and business associates."
In our Mastery of Performance Coaching, we equip each participant with knowledge, skills and abilities to become a mature, highly skilled, professional performance coach. Fagan is proud that the ICF has approved their combined Fundamentals and Mastery curriculum for 141 CCE unites. That’s more than any other coach training organization.
"Our Mastery program is a great way for coaches to reignite their passion for coaching, re-enter the profession, raise the bar on their skills and successfully launch their coaching business" says Fagan. "Our program includes experts in branding, marketing and launching a coaching business. Our coaches complete the training with all of the tools and skills needed to very quickly have a successful coaching business."

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. According to a new report from the Aberdeen Group, businesses that invest in employee training tend to reap the benefits in terms of improved engagement and retention levels.
“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.”
