"Leaders learn through tests and challenging situations. Leaders learn best when out of their comfort zones and forced to try new behaviours. Leaders learn best from the best. Everything is theoretical until you have been there. Seek out new places and experiences to build stockpiles of examples. "

–Robert Thomas, 2008

Coaching Produces Results

Coaching produces results. Recent studies on coaching report an ROI of six times the initial investment. Coaching is often customized to address individual needs, with week-to-week support and opportunities to integrate learning into real life work experiences. This sustains any leadership and life training programs, in contrast to other training models where learning is often forgotten upon leaving the training room.

In a study of 100 executives from Fortune 1000 companies who received coaching for six months to one year, the improvements for executives who participated in coaching were:

  • Working relationships with direct reports (reported by 77% of executives)
  • Working relationships with immediate supervisors (71%)
  • Teamwork (67%)
  • Working relationships with peers (63%)
  • Job satisfaction (61%)
  • Working relationships with clients (37%)

In the same study of 100 executives, companies reported improvements in:

  • Productivity (reported by 53% of executives)
  • Organizational strength (48%)
  • Retaining executives who received coaching (32%)
  • Cost reductions (23%)
  • Bottom-line profitability (22%)
