In the U.S. alone, spending levels associated with coaching were estimated to increase from 1 billion1 in 2004 to 2.4 billion2 in 2006, and is projected to grow 18 percent annually. Coaching is one of the fastest-growing areas of leadership development, yet this emerging field is extremely fragmented, with few barriers to entry. Positive returns on coaching investments rely on the ability of coaches to link their work to business strategy and development.
