Scientific studies show that coaching is a great investment. It increases life satisfaction and professional success and improves relationships.
The Journal of Positive Psychology found that coaching has positive effects on the outcomes of performance/skills, well-being, coping, work attitudes and goal-directed self-regulation.
Also, ongoing coaching is more effective than a one-time intervention. A study showed that while group training with managers increased their productivity by 22%, including a one-on-one, eight-week coaching session for the managers pushed up productivity by 88%.

Academia can be tough on even the most studious and hard-working individual. Sometimes it can seem that no matter how hard we try, the grades just don’t come up. For those who are chasing a degree, academic problems can be very stressful to deal with.
Not only does a struggling student have to deal with the pressures of completing their assignments, but they do so knowing that failure could mean wasted time and money. When the pressures of good academic performance prove to be too much, many people opt for academic coaching.
Much like tutoring, coaching sessions give students help from trained professionals. Those who understand how academia works and the problems students face can provide valuable assistance. Not only can they help students cope with the overwhelming stress that academic programs are known for, they can provide strategies for better academic performance.
Sometimes we need to change our study habits, while other times we simply need a more in-depth grasp of the subject material. No matter what problem a student is having, outside input from a coach can add some clarity and much-needed control to the situation.
Regardless of a student’s major or academic standing, academic coaches can be a great asset in helping you succeed.
What I most appreciated about working with Lynn Saboe was her ability to listen and effectively challenge me to develop executable plans that fit my style and experience, and to implement these plans in just two months. Thanks to her support, the quality and speed of my transition was substantially enhanced.

Zsofia Juhasz is an accomplished coach, who uses powerful questions to help her client move forward. She is empathetic without being soft, she is strong without being tough. She is also adept at listening for changes in energy levels, and celebrating when she hears a positive change. Adept at using imagery to help reframe perspectives, and visualisation to create positive goals, she skillfully guides her client to the end goal. I highly recommend her services.
