Benefits of Coaching

An ICF global Study shows that people reported improved work performance, business management, time management, team effectiveness, and growth upon coaching, along with greater self-confidence, relationships, communications skills, work-and-life balance, and wellness. Companies (86 percent) said that they at least made their investment back. One-fifth (19 percent) saw a ROI of 50 times their investment, while another 28 percent saw a ROI of 10 to 49 times the investment. A stunning 99 percent of people who were polled said they were somewhat or very satisfied with the overall coaching experience.
