Last year, most coaches were optimistic about demand for their services. This year, clients are joining in their optimism. Seven out of ten executive coaches and those who hire them say demand is going up. Life and personal coaches are optimistic, as well. In our survey sample, every buyer of coaching services sees demand going up in the next year.
