The International Coach Federation (ICF)* found that: “Professional coaching brings many wonderful benefits: fresh perspectives on personal challenges, enhanced decision-making skills, greater interpersonal effectiveness, and increased confidence. And, the list does not end there. Those who undertake coaching also can expect appreciable improvement in productivity, satisfaction with life and work, and the attainment of relevant goals.”

Their research showed:

Increased Productivity – Professional coaching maximizes potential and, therefore, unlocks latent sources of productivity:

  • 70% improved work performance
  • 61% improved business management
  • 57% improved time management
  • 51% improved team effectiveness

Positive People – Building the self-confidence of employees to face challenges is critical in meeting organisational demands:

  • 80% improved self confidence
  • 73% improved relationships
  • 72% improved communication skills
  • 67% improved life/work balance

Return on Investment – Coaching generates learning and clarity for forward action with a commitment to measurable outcomes. The vast majority of companies (86%) say they at least made their investment back.

Satisfied Clients – Virtually all companies and individuals who hire a coach are satisfied:

  • 99% somewhat or very satisfied
  • 98% would repeat the experience
