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%.

Many people work very hard at what they do, and struggle to overcome every obstacle in their way.
However, obstacles and hindrances aren’t always a bad thing. Sometimes they can help us work harder, and many people even elect to impose restraints on themselves for this purpose.
Restraints can come in the form of self-created deadlines, restrictions on available options, and even limits on the amount of people that can participate in a project. While these do hinder us in certain ways, they can also function as a catalyst for productivity and serve to benefit our progress in the long-run.
Self-imposed restraints present difficulties in the short-term, and this is where professional coaches can come in handy. Trained professionals can offer third-party input to help us work through restraints we’ve put on ourselves.
Working through self-imposed restraints can require us to push ourselves, change our thought process, and even discover creative new ways to accomplish the same goals.
The restraints may even need to be reevaluated, if they are determined to be more of a hindrance than a help. Self-imposed restrictions and limitations can be useful in some instances – for overcoming the difficulties they present, coaches are a valuable resource.
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.
