“I absolutely believe that people, unless coached, never reach their maximum capabilities.”
-Bob Nardelli, CEO, Home Depot
Coaching has become highly regarded as a tool to gain competitive advantage and sharpen the skills of individuals—especially top performers.
Why is coaching so crucial to development? The things that characterize a coaching relationship are rarely found in other development opportunities. Coaches fill a vital need that no one else can meet. The coaching relationship is:
- Highly personalized
- Real time
Having a coach is like having your own personal navigator. It is having someone in your corner that is committed to your success. Imagine a relationship, which by design, places total focus on you.
Imagine the benefit of regular conversations with a skilled professional. Imagine a safe place to think, to dream, to clarify, and to achieve.
A Certified Coach, unlike most other parties in an individual’s network is:
- Objective and unbiased
- Highly skilled in facilitating learning
- A confidential resource and sounding board
Does coaching work?
According to surveys conducted by the International Coaching Federation, 98.5% of clients are satisfied with their coach. Additionally, a survey of 100 executives, mostly from Fortune 1000 companies concluded that a company’s investment in providing coaching for executives realized an average return on investment of almost six times the cost of the coaching. With all the pluses, it is clear that almost anyone can benefit from a coaching relationship.
