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%.

"Prior to Intention Over Fear, I was lost. I had no idea of specifically what I wanted to do. I would wake up in the morning not happy about my job...She (Racquel) helped me to put those thoughts into action to open my mind about what I wanted to do...because of that, I'm in the process of opening up my own family daycare. I'm excited"

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.

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. :)
“Zach helped me very much during my starting time in a new position, which was very demanding. He always helped me gain new insights and staying motivated and positive.”
― Vanja, Non-Profit Leadership, Switzerland
My time spent with Laura was highly productive and a great experience. She taught me ways to prioritize my goals in a systematic fashion that will allow me to focus and progress through them. My career requires me to be inside my head a lot and having Laura teach me different methods of handling that will help me more than I can ever explain. Laura listens very well and provides the necessary tools needed to grow. Thank you very much for all your help!

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.

Dealing with Feeling Overwhelmed at Work

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.

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.
