THE RESULTS OF BUSINESS COACHING

Studies by the International Personnel Management Association have shown that productivity increases by 88% when trainings are combined with coaching as opposed to 22% with trainings alone. The International Coaching Federation has conducted a survey of 11,000 coaching clients, most of whom requested help with time management, business relationships, and career. We have summarised the findings as follows:

  • 98.5% found their investment worth it, regardless of cost.

  • 85% wanted the coach as a sounding board, because they find it challenging to talk to their stakeholders or board of directors for advice and feedback.

  • 78% wanted an independent person to act as a motivator to hold them accountable to their planned goals.

  • 57% wanted an independent friend.

  • 51% noticed enhanced self-awareness, greater self-confidence, better goal setting skills and higher results on business targets.

  • 50% were seeking a coach for improved life-work balance.

  • 40% wanted a coach to help them with their goal setting, especially financial goal setting. 40% noticed that their communication skills had improved as a result of coaching.

  • 33% noticed that they experienced more fun in their lives as a result of coaching.

  • 25% noticed that coaching had improved their earnings.
