Why is there tremendous growth in the coaching industry?
The coaching industry growth is due its powerful impact on businesses and the individuals they hire. Coaching focuses on what is most important in all areas of people's lives, understanding that unhappiness in one part of your life significantly impacts us as whole. Specifically: 1) Companies are moving away from "traditional employment contracts" due to radical organizational changes such as downsizing, restructuring, mergers. 2) Certain industries have a shortage of qualified employees, causing businesses to invest in individuals' development. 3) Managers are facing increasing demands for competitive results. What they are trained for and what they are required to do on the job, have become a significant disparity. 4) The increasing expectations on workers to perform at an all-time high level, has caused workplace pressures and job insecurity for them. 5) When creating businesses goals, as well as top-notch customer satisfaction, Companies must develop inclusive, collaborative work environments. 6) As life and results coaching has become more prevalent; the conversation, language, and openness to taking charge of their own lives in this way has increased its appeal.
