The benefits of coaching as perceived by clients.
In 2009 ICF (the International Coach Federation, a non profit organisation) commissioned a study on Coaching and survived several clients.
The result of the study contained the benefits of coaching as perceived by the clients, in three main areas:
- Increased Productivity
Professional coaching explicitly targets maximizing potential and in doing this unlocks latent sources of productivity and effectiveness.
- Positive People
Self-confidence and self-trust are critical to meet organizational demands and face challenges.
- Return on Investment
Coaching offers a good return on investment for individual clients and offers a significant return on investment for companies.
- Satisfied individuals and companies
A stunning 99% of people who were polled said they were somewhat or very satisfied with the overall experience.
