Research Proves the Advantages of Holding a Credential

ICF research has revealed several reasons coaches benefit from becoming a credential-holder.  According to the 2012 ICF Global Coaching Study, credentialed coaches report a higher-than-average income worldwide compared to non-credentialed coaches, with the exception of the Middle East and Africa.  According to the 2010 ICF Global Consumer Awareness Study, clients who worked with an ICF credential-holder were more likely to be satisfied with their coaching experience and would recommend coaching to others.  In the 2010 ICF Global Consumer Awareness Study, 84 percent of adult consumers who had experienced a coaching relationship reported that it was important for coaches to hold a credential. -- The International Coach Federation
