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%.

In a professional environment, creating and cultivating good relationships is vital for success. However, sometimes these relationships must also be ended.
Firing employees is usually not easy. Terminating a team member can be stressful, and result in serious legal ramifications, if handled improperly. To ensure they handle this important process correctly, many people turn to trained coaches for guidance.
Those who specialize in the area of business, staffing, and human resources know that losing employees can be a tumultuous experience. Breaking the news is one thing, but there’s also handling backlash and making sure the empty spot on the team doesn’t slow down production.
In some cases, firing a worker requires planning ahead and putting certain things in place before delivering the official termination notice. In other instances, it can be as simple as learning how to phrase things properly to break the news in a professional manner.
Every situation is different, as the reason for the termination can change the circumstances. Regardless of how fast the firing must take place or how long the employee has been with the company, coaches can provide valuable guidance for making the process go a little smoother. In a sensitive situation like a termination, this third-party assistance can be very helpful.
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.
