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 perfect world, tough situations would never drag people down – especially in a place of business. Unfortunately, we all know this is not the case. Rough times can affect a person’s mood and morale, which is particularly problematic for their work life. Many people find themselves dealing with difficult situations and people at work every year. Whether it’s a cluster of circumstances or a particular team member who is causing the stress, no one has to go through these issues alone.
Coaches can help a person discover strategies and tools to handle difficult situations and people effectively. Having the right approach to these troubling instances is key for maintaining confidence, peace of mind, and other characteristics which are important, both personally and professionally.
Coaches will work to understand the situation, discovering the root causes of the problem as well as the external and internal resources available to stop it. Sometimes, dealing with a situation alone is hard because stress and anxiety can stop a person from thinking clearly. Clear-minded coaches with an outsider’s perspective can apply their expert knowledge of counseling and mediation, effectively serving as a voice of reason in even the tensest situations.
The coach will help brainstorm strategies for helping a person correct their situation and/or learn how to be less affected by it. Getting help from a professional allows a person to conquer their situation, rather than feeling like it has conquered them.
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.
