As I previously announced in my open letter to all our stakeholders in December 2015
, both our enormous achievements and growing global footprint have set the stage for WABC to choose its new strategic priorities for the next five years. With this in mind, WABC offered all key stakeholders the opportunity to recently participate in a global survey to help us bring the most relevant, high quality, targeted business coaching support and services to you in a sustainable way.
As our plans mature, we look forward to updating our key stakeholders on further survey results and decisions — and we thank all of you who took time out of your busy lives to respond for helping us better understand your world and our role in it.
The Worldwide Association of Business Coaches (WABC) is the first global professional association to exclusively represent the business coaching industry
. Since its inception in 1997, WABC has dedicated itself to raising the profile of business coaching—still an emerging profession—and to differentiating it from coaching in general. By engaging in disciplined self-regulatory activities to increase public trust in our industry worldwide, WABC has done more than any other organization to identify the tasks, qualities and skills of the business coach.
We've built our reputation as a leading global authority on business coaching by insisting on the best: the highest membership standards, the most rigorous evidence-based programs, the most advanced business coaching credentials. Our activities set the gold standard for business coaching and help decision-makers around the world when they screen, hire, train and evaluate business coaches. Our membership—now spanning over 40 countries and steadily growing—includes internal and external business coaches who work with entrepreneurs, managers, CEOs, presidents and professionals from all industries in the public, private and non-profit sectors—from start-ups to Fortune 100 companies.
Whether you are a business coach, trainer of business coaches, someone thinking about a career in business coaching or an organization wanting to hire a business coach or expert to help you build a coaching program or culture, WABC is your leading global resource.
