Why Coaching?

The behavior of a company's leaders is crucial to the entire organization. Leaders set the tone and model behavior for the entire organization. A leader's greatest tool in leading others is the combination of their personality and behavior. A leader's greatest contribution is how well they communicate ideas, influence those around them, demonstrate the behavior they talk about and inspire others to join together in accomplishing a common goal. Executive Coaches work with leaders to develop leadership skills - encouraging them to lead by example and to develop motivated and committed teams.

Coaching benefits both the organization and the individual. Studies on coaching report an ROI of 5 to 7 times the initial investment. One reason this may be so high is that coaching can be customized to address individual needs, with week-to-week support and opportunities to integrate learning into real life work experiences.

In a survey of 4000+ corporations on their involvement with corporate coaching, the primary benefits of coaching reported are (in order)

 Improved individual performance
 Bottom line results (including profit)
