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%.

Sometimes the highest people in a professional hierarchy can be the hardest to deal with.
This isn’t always the case – but anyone who has ever been in this situation knows how hard it can be when the big bosses act inappropriately or have a poor attitude.
This type of behavior at the highest levels of a business can have a nasty effect. Namely, it can trickle down and affect the entire team if the situation gets bad enough. Addressing the negative behavior and tone of dysfunctional boards of directors and board committees sometimes requires outside help.
Professional coaches with a background in business know how hard it can be when the board of directors or high-ranking committee members have problems. The problem could be individual attitude issues, difficulties working together, or a combination of the two.
Coaches can help discover the cause of the problem and advise us on how to move forward positively. Sometimes it requires us to go through the available channels to discipline or retrain these individuals. In other cases, the solution is as simple as mediation or even a change of attitude to deal with the issues.
No matter how difficult the situation has become at the top of the managerial ladder, coaches can help bring clarity and control.
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.
