10. What do executive coaches in the U.S. earn?
In the HBR Research Report, “What Can Coaches Do for You?” by Diane Coutu and Carol Kaufman in January, 2009 there is a survey of rates. The low was $200 an hour, the high $3,500 an hour and the median hourly cost of coaching was $500. (The high is less than that for management consultants. The U.S. marketing consultant Jay Abraham, for example, charges $5,000 an hour.)
