This survey by The Conference Board Council on Executive Coaching focuses on external coaching practices as well as the growing use of internal coaching. How long do coaching engagements last? How much time do coaches spend with a client per month? What types of coaching are performed? What are some criteria for choosing between an internal and external coach? Results for both types of coaches are featured in this report, which also includes a global comparison of rates and, where available, comparisons to previous surveys on executive coaching.
