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%.

Everything in life is about balance. This is especially true when it comes to our balance between work and life. Important commitments like careers and family/personal matters require attention – but sometimes it seems that one or the other is getting more of us.
A person who dedicates too much time to their personal life may end up facing financial difficulties. Those who dedicate too much time to work, however, many end up with strained relationships and an overabundance of stress.
Finding the right balance between the two can be hard, as our dedication to one area can cause us to fall short in another. Professional coaches are sometimes necessary to help people at improving work/life balance, and for ensuring they stay on the right track in the long-term.
Improving the balance between work and life involves understanding our schedules, our commitments, and the best way to coordinate the two. An outside perspective can be helpful in these situations, as they can reveal solutions and strategies for creating a good balance.
When we find the right balance, both work and life become more enjoyable. We’re more likely to have better relationships, smoother finances, and a more comfortable life overall. Even those who have struggled for years to find this balance can make progress by working with trained coaches.
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.
