What is the average salary of coaches?
In general, only large groups offer positions for in-house coaches, whom they employ in their HR departments. Here, the annual starting salaries usually amount to between EUR 30,000 and EUR 45,000. With increasing experience and activities involving a higher level of responsibility, such as executive coaching, in-house coaches may earn up to between EUR 70,000 and EUR 90,000 per year. Most coaches in Germany work as freelancers. Depending on their qualifications (e.g. an academic degree in psychology or business administration), experience and customers, their hourly rates usually range from EUR 80 to EUR 150; top coaches may even charge fees in the high three-digit range.
