They say “No man is an island.” The same is true for coaching – at its most effective, coaching takes a blended approach of group coaching supplemented by coaching of individuals within that group.
Common leadership challenges faced by organizations
A Conference Board study of over 20,000 executives globally identified these are the most common leadership challenges:
- Aligned and engaged human capital
- Managing change and diversity
- Customer orientation
At Coacharya, we believe that group coaching is the key to addressing these, and other organizational challenges.
Coaching is an effective way to improve performance
According to the ICF Global Coaching Client Study, people who were coached reported improved work performance, better business management, more efficient time management, increased team effectiveness, and more growth and opportunities.
The same study found that coaching clients’ noted greater self-confidence, enhanced relationships, more effective communications skills, better work-and-life balance, and an improvement in wellness.
The vast majority of companies (86%) said that they at least made their investment back. In fact, almost one-fifth (19%) saw a ROI of 50 times their investment, while another 28% saw a ROI of 10 to 49 times the investment.
Nearly all companies or individuals who hire a coach are satisfied.
