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%.

It’s often said that people have more similarities than differences. While this may be true, our differences can often cause misunderstandings and even friction in some cases.
Cultural differences are a good example of this. They can result in language barriers, confusion about mannerisms and customs, and even disagreements about the proper etiquette to display in any given situation.
Understanding and working through cultural differences are important for helping us get along and ensure we don’t inadvertently disrespect another person. Whether it’s in our personal or professional lives, handling cultural differences sometimes requires us to seek outside help.
Coaches who understand different cultures and how they can have differences are valuable in this area. They can help us realize how peoples’ cultural habits define them, and what their culture truly means. This, in turn, can help us understand how differences develop between us and how to work through them.
Working through our differences may require us to meet a person half way, and compromise on certain issues.
In some cases, we can correct our own behavior simply by gaining a better understanding of where the other person is coming from. The result can be better relationships both personally and professionally.
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.
