Preface

When global leaders like Eric Schmidt, Chairman and CEO of Google, states getting a coach was “The best advice I ever got”, you know coaching isn’t going away any time soon. As of 2007, it is estimated that there were over 1,000,000 coaches worldwide with approximate annual worldwide revenue produced by coaching at 1.5 billion USD (Price Waterhouse Study). More and more people are hanging out a shingle and calling themselves “Coach” but are they doing it right?

Statistics from various surveys and research state more than 75% of global coaches aren’t making a sustainable living. But those who are, are not only making a name for the profession but are setting trends with the people and within organisations they’re servicing.

If becoming a coach is your dream, then do it right. Before you decide to dive into the deep end of coaching, get all your ducks in a row. You need to consider all that’s involved to get the right training for your stream of coaching, what you need to be credentialed, and design a successful business model to support your work. This will help you make the best decisions to move forward.

In this book you’ll explore what coaching is, how you get started, what you need to decide whether or not to give up your day job in order to make a difference and the reality checker questions and answers you need to make those decisions.
