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%.

Humans are creatures of habit. Especially in a professional environment, people enjoy familiarity and things they know well.
Since adjusting to change can be so difficult, many people resist it at first. Organizations often struggle to implement largescale changes, as employees may favor the older ways of doing things. When this type of resistance manifests itself in an organization, knowing how to address it is important.
Addressing the resistance isn’t just necessary for allowing the new changes to take hold – it is also important for ensuring all employees are comfortable and acceptant of the new changes. Coaches understand the organizational environment, and they know just how difficult change can be. These professionals can provide insight to help managers cope with the resistance they’re facing, while also giving them steps to handle the issue.
Understanding organizational resistance to change and taking steps to address it can help us become less affected by it. Coaches can help us view the change from the perspective of employees, so we can understand the pushback. Strategies for helping address this phenomenon include company briefings and memos to give employees the information they need to adjust.
Change is never easy – but professional coaches can help any organization adjust a little easier.
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.
