The Research and Science Behind Coaching

What is coaching?

Coaching is a highly personalized form of professional leadership development with an action-oriented approach. Coaches partner with coachees to increase self-awareness, generate insights and level up thinking that can lead to a lasting mindset and behavior shifts with impact on company performance. Coaches may use a combination of questions, tools, frameworks and content to personalize the learning experience for each person.

Everyone needs a coach. It doesn't matter whether you're a basketball player, a tennis player, a gymnast or a bridge player.

Why coaching?

The world is moving from “finding a steady job” to career growth, work life balance and ongoing mentorship.

87% of millennials say professional development or career growth opportunities are very important to them in a job.

85% of Employees are Disengaged

People are looking for growth, leadership, and direction. Coaches foster performance through a personalized approach and get to know people as a whole person. Learning and development programs should be personalized, engaging and provide ongoing feedback to meet the needs of millenials.

Coaching improves retention and engagement

Organizations with formal mentoring have 20% lower turnover, 46% higher leadership quality, and fill roles 23% more quickly. While we do need development paths for people, it’s even more important to give them development coaches!

Today, Everybody is a Leader

The 2019 Deloitte Human Capital Trends report found that 80% of HR leaders believe they need to develop leaders differently. Over 85% of employees around the world are disengaged or not engaged in their jobs, and the Number 1 Reason people quit their jobs is lack of opportunity to learn and grow.

Personalized coaching provides a path to train your people at levels, even before they are in leadership roles. New managers often face challenges like resolving issues between teammates, motivating and evaluating employees, and finding the right resources to support them. Coaching can address the problems a new manager might face by providing a neutral thinking partner who can help them work through these issues.
