Getting the Results You Need

“Only those who risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.”

– T.S. Elliott


You want to make changes and reach your true potential, both on and off the job. You are ready to zoom forward. You know that you want to make the investment of time and money into your own professional development.  This post is the second in a series designed to help you find and hire the perfect professional coach.

Why invest in a professional coach? According to a recent study by Manchester, Inc., executives who received coaching services realized a sixfold ROI (return on investment).  Wow!  Imagine achieving as much in a single day as you did in the previous week.

The most specific improvements were in the areas of:

  • Working relationships up 77%
  • Teamwork up 67%
  • Productivity up 53%

These results speak for themselves.  Working with a professional coach can truly give you the boost you need to achieve the goals you’ve always dreamed of, both inside and outside of the office. Coaching isn’t for people who have hit “rock bottom”.  I have some people who seek my coaching services who are feeling overwhelmed, but in general, individuals who want to improve are the best and the brightest.  They want strategies to help their inner brilliance shine throughCoaching provides customized professional development and heightened personal awareness that no other method can offer.

But how do you ensure that you are making a wise investment and hiring the very best coach who has your best interest at the heart of the engagement?

Stay tuned to this series of posts to help you get the information that you need to find the perfect coach.  Can’t wait for the next post? Buy the book Awakening the Workplace and turn to page 109 to read more about finding the perfect coach.
