Benefits of Coaching
In their 2008 study of Business Coaching, the American Management Association (AMA) noted:
“Many organizations are chronically concerned that they don’t have the right talent to succeed, and this is especially true in the area of leadership.
They view leadership as among the top issues affecting their organizations both today and in the future, yet they’re often dissatisfied with everything from succession planning systems to leadership development programs.”
Read in today’s context of reduced staff levels, agile aspirations and rapidly-changing roles, managers are right to worry. They may have the tools and the resources to do the job, but lack the leadership or technical vision. High performance teams are built on trust, openness and commitment.
Of the international organisations surveyed by the AMA, 80% responded that coaching had been successful. The figure in North America was 70%.
