Coaching works. When done well, coaching is a highly effective development tool that’s personally and professionally rewarding. The benefits of coaching to business include accelerating the pace of change to address challenging financial climates, as well as motivating, retaining and enthusing key employees. My own MSc research into coaching found that it is positively related to increased employee engagement as measured by the Gallup Q12 WPA scores, with Recognition (as measured by Q4) and Trust (as measured by Q10) being the most responsive to a coaching approach.
But if you are anything like me, then you will want to make up your own mind. To help you, I have detailed below evidence to demonstrate that coaching is a worthwhile investment.
