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%.

Whether it’s a demanding boss, a questionable co-worker, or a massive workload, there are many factors that can lead to a professional feeling burdened down. Anyone dealing with feeling overwhelmed at work may find the problem is worsening, as the stress can cause even the most focused employee to lose concentration and morale. Feelings of stress and anxiety can also carry over into a worker’s personal life, affecting their mood even when they’re off the clock. Coaches understand that workers sometimes get bogged down with all the demands of their job. By examining these feelings and discovering how they manifest, coaches can help them find some relief.
Part of the process involves discovering why the person is feeling overwhelmed. We all have different trigger points, and sometimes these are harder to discover especially in a professional environment. Workers often go into “autopilot mode,” ignoring stressors for the sake of getting the job done.
Coaches can help workers examine their job thoroughly and objectively, picking out the factors which contribute to them feeling overwhelmed. The next part of the process involves discovering strategies to deal with these issues in a strategic manner. The solution sometimes involves switching things up at work. Other times, it can be as easy as taking a different mental approach to the demands of the job.
With qualified coaches helping them, overwhelming feelings can be eliminated, or at least mitigated, so they’re always excited to come to work.
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.
