According to a 2008 ICF Global Coaching Client Study of 2,165 coaching clients in 26 countries, companies that had used professional coaching for business purposes experienced a medium ROI of 7 times their initial investment. Equally important, 80% of the respondents reported positive changes in self-esteem, self-confidence, relationships, communication skills, and work/life balance.
Coaching works because it empowers people to change
without telling them what they should do.
Empowerment Coaching focuses on helping people pursue goals, explore options, make wise choices, overcome obstacles, and celebrate their achievements. It is based on the principle that the people you coach will understand, value, and apply what you help them to discover for themselves, not what you tell them.
This is outstanding training. I have been to other coaching training, and this is much more thorough and comprehensive. It gave me a solid basis for coaching that can be used in other contexts as well. Thank you! – R.B., Grand Rapids, MI
This is an excellent, organized training presented in a practical way with opportunities for practice and reflection. And it is taught by experienced, qualified coaches. It is time well spent. – SK, Holland, MI
This was a very hands-on conference that actually allowed us to immediately put into practice what we were being taught. The role plays were an excellent way to give us a chance to deal with real-life situations. By actually coaching and being coached, I was able to see how valuable this service is. Thank you for providing a non-threatening place to learn more! – L.N., Grand Rapids, MI
