The process that generates successful relationships among successful people. The endeavor which facilitates living the changes. Coaching = Greater Awareness & Learning = More Strategic and Effective Doing = Stronger Results
What is a COACH? A facilitator who will connect the profound personal motivations, the professional objectives and the vision of the organization. A „cartographer” who gives you points of reference and who accompanies you during the repositioning process. A professional you personally choose as agent of change in order to obtain real and natural performance. A companion on your way to success. “Coaching now is part of the standard leadership development training for elite executives and talented up-and-comers at IBM, Motorola, J.P. Morgan, Chase and Hewlett Packard. These companies are discreetly giving their best prospects what star athletes have long had: a trusted adviser to help reach their goals.” CNN.com
Why is Coaching so powerful? It engages a client on a one to one basis and focuses on achieving the results, challenges, changes or learning most valuable to the individual and the organization. It establishes an ongoing, confidential relationship with high levels of accountability that results in the right things getting done. It increases awareness, cultivates a more strategic view, challenges assumptions, shifts perspectives and supports rapid development. It supports individualized learning and growth in key interpersonal, business and leadership competencies that most benefit the individual and organization.
Why is Coaching so powerful? Several studies on executive coaching (Manchester 2001, MetrixGlobal 2001) have demonstrated that a well- executed coaching program can achieve between 500% and 700% return on investment. In one study seven out of ten participants put the value of the return to the company at over $100,000. Exceptional coaching combines the analytic and the intuitive with solid executive experience. It doesn’t just get better results, it gets the most meaningful results.
