Professional coaching and professionals developing coaching skills are a powerful catalyst in the business, nonprofit and healthcare domains. Executive and leadership coaches play a critical role in developing high-performing leaders who lead in a VUCA world (volatile, uncertain, complex, ambiguous). In nonprofit organizations, coaching helps empower leaders and communities to live their missions more effectively. In the healthcare industry, applying science-based coaching competencies can improve motivation and the capacity of patients to develop and sustain health-giving behaviors. As treatment of lifestyle-related chronic diseases consumes 70% of healthcare costs the field helps meet a growing human and economic crisis. The business and healthcare market for coaching is growing rapidly.
