Organizations are allocating more than $1 billion annually for coaching because the ROI (return on investment) is seven times the initial expense.*
What is Coaching?
The aim of coaching is to help the client see new possibilities for thinking about a situation and supporting them in choosing action(s) they might take to get results that are better than the results they are getting now.
Professional Coaching is a highly validated partnership between a coach and client, engaged in a thought-provoking and generative process. The coach acts as a strategic thinking partner, expanding the client's focus, thinking, and awareness of their opportunities and challenges. This interaction accelerates the client's progress and moves the them into more informed and mindful action. Coaching is primarily a present and future focused tool reliant on the belief that clients have the ability to work through situations and develop their own solutions.
