Are you feeling stressed out by work demands? Or suffering from low self-esteem? A coach might be the answer you’re looking for. Seventy-nine percent of respondents in the 2009 International Coach Federation Global Coaching Client Study rated self-esteem/self-confidence as “very important” or “somewhat important,” followed by 76% who said the same of work/life balance.
The study found that while motivations vary somewhat based on the type of coaching sought, self-esteem and work/life balance surface as generally quite important regardless of coaching type, as do the following general motivation factors: relationships, interpersonal skills, communication skills and work performance.
Benefits in self-esteem/self-confidence were also experienced by 52% of participants who did not have this area as a primary objective when entering into a coaching agreement, according to the survey.
