WHY IS COACHING A GOOD IDEA?

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%.

It was a pleasure to work with Mitch. Mitch has the unique ability to identify key aspects of my personality and give me great personalized ideas to deal with some of my most challenging situations. For many of my meetings I felt I may have been too busy to attend and considered cancelling. I never did and each and every meeting was fruitful and fulfilling. I never regretted any time I spent with Mitch. I would recommend Mitch to everyone.

I highly recommend Coach Mike as a Personal Coach. During our time together he held me accountable for my forward movement and did so with humor and vivid imagery. His use of intuition and suggestions helped me to overcome a negative work environment.
Berserk is my other name that people called behind my back. People at office dreaded to be associated with me. Many personal relationships broke before it took off. I was angry at the world, at people, at colleagues. I thought they lacked the basic civic sense, thought they lacked courtesy, thought they were trying to corner and hurt me. I began to hate myself and this world. I found myself lonely and hated. I browsed and found your online coaching on emotional well being. Joining SISOSU is the best thing that happened to me. My anger was not about anything outside but it was definitely trying to make me a better person. Thanks for opening my eyes. Now I am calmer than many I know and have few good friends. I am in love too. :)
Looking deeper into myself and my life both past and present has allowed me to identify certain behaviours that I have here at work. By understanding this behaviour and how it translates in the workplace, I have been able to identify my own strengths and weaknesses. You have helped me see how my behaviour affects the responses I get from my colleagues, which in turn can affect my whole day and demotivate me. By changing my response to people here, I have noticed that their behaviour towards me has changed too. The impact of that is huge, and has given me endless confidence. I feel much more part of a team and much more valuable as a member of the company.

Q. What was going on in your life before working with me? A. Although I attend networking events on an occasional basis, I was usually too reserved to go up to people to talk – hence I usually relied on being introduced to others or talking only to people that I was familiar with. Q. What brought you to book a coaching session(s)? A. I wanted to make some changes in the way that I handled social situations so I would be better equipped in future. Also, I was hoping to gain some tips on how to improve my networking skills so that I could become better at it. Q. How was your experience during the coachingsession(s)? A. It was great! Liz is really friendly and easy to talk to, and she was able to pick up on certain points that I hadn’t noticed before to help me find ways to improve. Her listening skills and attentiveness during the sessions were also very encouraging as I was able to open up and speak candidly about what was happening and what methods I was using to deal with them. Beyond what I had signed up to do, Liz was also really helpful in speaking with me about other areas in my life that I could work on – offering encouragement and identifying methods to help resolve those issues. Q. What benefits did you gain from the coaching session(s)? A. I’ve become more confident during networking sessions to approach people I’m unfamiliar with, and also learned how to talk in a group of people. On top of that, I’ve also been working on other issues I’ve been facing at work and collaborating with my colleagues to find resolutions together. Q. Would you recommend the coaching session(s)to others? A. Yes! If you feel that you’re willing to put in the work, and also have the resolve to achieve something at the end of it.

Nicole has been the best mentor and life coach I could ask for. Unlike others, Nicole never pressures me into a decision. She provides insight, after asking for permission, and asks questions for me to find the right path. From what I’ve experienced, this is better for long-term growth and better for development. Nicole gives you permission to experience your emotions and encourages you to leave room for discovery. By rooting herself in facts and neuroscience, you learn through osmosis ways to better react to a range of situations. I highly recommend Nicole Gravagna, PhD, to anyone looking to explore themselves and grow into their fullest self.

Dealing with Difficult Situations and People at Work

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.

CLIENTS LOVE OUR 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.
