How will a coach help me get a plan, define a dream, or achieve a goal?  A coach will take you through the process of exploring opportunities and possibilities, considering challenges, identifying resources, creating strategies, defining action steps, and managing accountability.  A coach is a partner with the training and competencies to empower you being your best self.

The research shows the impact of coaching:

  • AMOCO Corporation, now part of British Petroleum, evaluated coaching over a ten-year period. The investigators reported that “compared to other AMOCO managers, coaching participants consistently demonstrated improved performance, increased ratings of potential for advancement and 50% higher average salary increases.  Moreover, the participants themselves attributed these results directly to the coaching they had received.”
  • Fortune Magazine cites an average return on investment of 600%.
  • MetrixGlobal LLC found coaching produced a 529% ROI and the financial benefits from employee retention boosted the overall ROI to 788%

How does coaching work to help me move forward?  Reflect on the difference between being told what to do and creating your own solutions.  A coach is trained through their coaching certification to empower you to discover your own answers and develop your own strategies.
