Have you completed the survey yet?

The Global Coaching Survey is designed to provide an up-to-date picture of the coaching profession and empower you to embrace the opportunities and meet the challenges ahead.

The survey is available online at www.coachingsurvey2019.com.

The survey will remain open through December 2019.

The survey is available in nine languages: English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, Portuguese, and Spanish.

The survey is open to both ICF Members and non-members who are:

  • External coach practitioners
  • Internal coach practitioners
  • Coaches who self-identify as both external and internal coach practitioners
  • HR/talent development managers/leaders who use coaching skills
  • Managers/leaders who use coaching skills


This survey explores diverse topics, including:

  • Industry size and revenue
  • The business and practice of coaching
  • Perspectives on industry trends, including regulation, technology and more


The 2019 Global Coaching Survey is commissioned by ICF and conducted by PwC Research. PwC hosts the survey on a dedicated website, and respondents can have confidence that the information they share will remain secure and confidential.

  • This is not just an ICF Member survey. It is open to both ICF Members and non-members. The participation of non-members is crucial to its success.
  • This is not branded as an ICF study. Doing this enables us to cast a wider net and enhances the credibility of the research findings.
  • Throughout the field period, PwC will distribute periodic, formal reminder emails with a link to complete the survey to members of the ICF community and to past survey respondents. These emails are credible and have been authorized by ICF. If members have questions re: the credibility of an email from PwC, they may direct those inquiries to icfpr@coachfederation.org.


This is the fourth iteration of the Global Coaching Survey.

  • The 2015 survey had 15,380 valid responses from 137 countries.
  • The survey is designed to engage with as many coaches as possible to provide an up-to-date picture of the coaching profession and empower coaches to embrace the opportunities and meet the challenges ahead.
  • This will be the second time that managers/leaders using coaching skills are included in the study. In 2015, their inclusion enabled us to achieve powerful insights into the growth of coaching cultures within businesses and organizations.
