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%.

Not everyone finds their passion or their calling early on. Some people even struggle to discover their purpose in the world despite having plenty of talent and ambition.
Even the fastest learner or the hardest worker may be unclear about what it is they’d like out of life. Many people find themselves with the following thought process: “Finding what I want to do in life is hard. How can I add some clarity to this decision?”
Coaches can work with individuals to help them discover what they want to do in life. Sometimes, this involves a few different considerations. The first is to consider what talents a person has and what sort of activities they find fulfilling.
Making this decision also involves considering what the world needs, and what sort of things can help other people. Finding a middle-point between a person’s abilities and the needs of others can make this important decision much easier. Sometimes making the decision can be hard without help. Our thinking can sometimes become clouded by the expectations of others, and even previous choices that have left us feeling less than fulfilled.
Discovering what to do in life is an important decision for living a happy life and helping others. Professional coaching provides some much-needed support for anyone making this decision.
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.

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.
