While the mean scores of both the ICF certified and renegade respondents were generally quite low with regard to the extent their changes as a coach in recent times “feel like decline or impairment,” a significance difference (at the .05 level of confidence) was identified. Those with ICF certification were more likely to identify decline or impairment than were the renegades. At the same time, the ICF certified respondents were more likely than the renegade respondents to believe their own future development as a coach to be very important, the level of confidence being at the .05 level.

As we move to our report on the final two questions, we wish to note that the respondent scale changes from a 1-5 rating to a scale that ranging from plus 3 to minus 3. Hence, the mean scores will usually be lower than is the case with the previous questions.

    What a terrific paper! And I’m not saying that because my name is spelled correctly or my ideas are accurately presented. The distinction between internal/external locus of control, the renegades/certified distinction, and the frontier town analogy are all stimulating and thought-provoking ideas.
