The August 25, 2009 Wall Street Journal reports that demand for executive coaches and business coaches is steady and, in some cases, is rising despite - or even because of the recession.
Why is demand for coaching still so high even while the economy is struggling? Simple. Coaches help businesses, executives and employees improve their bottom line. They make more money. And isn't that what most people want during a recession?
But as you've probably noticed, I'm a bit biased about coaching. So you may be tempted to ignore me when I tell you that MSNBC called coaching one of the top five careers for 2009, or that Google CEO, Eric Schmidt says everyone needs a coach, etc., etc., etc.
So Ignore me. Just read what The Wall Street Journal says about coaching in the recession.
