Life coaching had a bad rep in prior decades. It was perceived as not sexy at the time. An airy-fairy, elusive, unprofessional approach to personal improvement. But there have been big changes...
Thankfully, the coaching industry has come a long way this century - accredited and rigorous training programs; the International Coaching Federation (ICF) leading ethics, governance, and certification; and many people seeking a balanced life, with emphasis on wellness solutions before medical intervention.
The global economy is rapidly changing also. We no longer expect to work in the same company or even the same industry all our life. The rise of automation and AI means many entry to mid-level jobs won't exist in their current form in 10 years. We must stay relevant and evolve in order to excel. Many people are pursuing a meaningful career, work-life integration, and redefining success; disenchanted by endless rounds of redundancies and operating restructures many industries now experience, wanting to live their dream, or seeking out a purpose driven life. With improved access to top quality coaches, and a better understanding of the joys and benefits of coaching, more people are working with a coach in order to thrive and succeed in all areas of life.
