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%.

Time can change people, and it can even change their perceptions of things they once loved. Many people arrive at their current job feeling excited and driven. But this luster can sometimes fade, leading to a situation where workers would no longer feel the same amount of spark they once had on their first day.
Rediscovering passion and joy in work is key for being a happy and successful professional. Noticing the good aspects of the job not only makes a person feel better, but it also allows them to focus more on any task at hand. We all know that life on the clock can change drastically due to managerial shifts, economic fluctuations, or sometimes, simply the passing of time. When a person’s attitude about work has changed and they no longer like the way they feel about it, professional coaches can help.
Coaches can gather information about a person’s background, their current job, and what exactly has changed to alter their perception of their work life.
In some cases, the loss of joy and passion is due to a change in the job. Other times, the person may tend to focus more on the negative than the positive stuff. Professional coaches know how to create an effective strategy to help workers rediscover what it is they love about their jobs in the first place, as well as help them rekindle the excitement they once had for their profession.
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.
