What happens?

A typical coaching session lasts about an hour and can take place in person or by phone.  The session is a conversation structured around questions like these:

  • What do you think is the most important thing for us to address today/what result would you like to take from our meeting today?
  • What is currently going on/what factors are influencing you and your circumstances?
  • What is most important to you right now and what obstacles do you face?
  • What are the action steps that you feel would help you move towards your goals?

Does Coaching really work?

You bet it does! Research consistently demonstrates that productivity, skill development, morale and relationships all improve dramatically when training is combined with coaching.

  • Training alone produced a 20-25% increase; training plus coaching produced an 80-85% increase! [1]
  • MetrixGlobal LLC found that coaching produced a 529% return on investment! [2]
