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%.

Speaking skills are vital for all areas of life. But speaking in a group can sometimes present new challenges that catch us off guard.
Group settings like family gatherings and business meetings may require us to hone our skills at speaking to more than one person. This can require practice and preparation, and it’s something many people struggle with.
Speaking effectively in group settings requires us to have confidence in our verbal skills, but this isn’t always easy. Some people are very private, so group settings aren’t their preferred environment. Others aren’t confident in their speaking skills due to a lack of practice or even previous struggles in this area.
Professional coaches can be helpful when we’re looking to gain the ability to speak effectively in a group. Whether we’re trying to communicate an idea to our entire family or our whole work team, there are steps that can be taken to make things easier.
Understanding the differences between speaking to an individual and speaking to a group is the first step. Keeping things clear and concise is important, as is ensuring our message gets across.
Coaches can help us gain the talent and confidence necessary to handle speaking in any group setting.
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.
