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%.

Listening is not a passive skill, but rather an active one. This is lost to some people, who find themselves hearing words but never quite understanding the meaning behind them.
Becoming a better listener can help us build stronger relationships, retain information more effectively, excel at our jobs, and more. Listening may seem simple enough, but there is a science behind it that many people are unaware of.
Effective listening requires absorbing what a person is saying, understanding the point behind their words, and retaining the meaning behind them. When we feel we’re struggling with learning to listen properly, enlisting the help of a professional coach can be the right move.
Coaches understand how important good listening skills are, and they know the difference between passive listening and active listening. They can provide strategies for helping us remain focused, and ensuring we get the full message behind a person’s words when we hear them.
As our listening skills improve, we can gain a better understanding of one another and how we can communicate more effectively. Listening is a major part of good communication, and when we can excel in this area, we can reap benefits in almost all areas of life.
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.
