How can a coach improve individual performance & the work environment? (August 18)
Imagine what it would look like if teams measurably improved their overall performance and had an even more positive work environment?
Over the past couple of years, I have learned how much I enjoy professional coaching and how incredibly rewarding it is. When you work with someone 1 on 1 and can help them evolve professionally, and especially when they have that ‘ah-ha’ moment, it feels fantastic to know you helped them find their own answers.
The research is clear that there are undeniable benefits to having a professional business coach. The International Coaching Federation provides the following statistics:
· Increased Productivity (up to 70%) Includes Work Performance, Business Management, Time Management, Team Effectiveness
· More Positive People (increase up to 80%) Includes Self Confidence, Relationships, Communication Skills, Life/Work Balance
· Return on Investment (86%)
Further, sales teams who use a sales performance coaching had 161% more wins (salesforce)
Based on all of the articles and data I was seeing on the benefits of investing in a business coach, I decided to get feedback from some of my current and past coaching clients. Their feedback could be summarized into 3 primary areas of benefit:
1)A confidential conversation with someone external to the company to provide an independent perspective
2) Help with performance improvement and professional development
3) Ability to speak openly and freely

If professional athletes can benefit from working with a coach or multiple coaches, so can you!
Based on my own experiences working with people, and fully backed up by a whole bunch of data, coaching works. If you feel that you and/or people in your organization could benefit from working with a coach, let’s set up a time to have a conversation to explore how I can help.
