Coaching Workshop – Ontario

How You Will Benefit
Coaching in organization and leadership settings is an invaluable tool for developing people across a wide range of needs. The benefits of coaching are many; 80% of people who receive coaching report increased self-confidence, and over 70% benefit from improved work performance, relationships, and more effective communication skills. 86% of companies report that they recouped their investment on coaching and more (source: ICF 2009).

Using coaching does not mean that managers should no longer direct and supervise their teams, but rather that their management style becomes more adapted to a given situation and responds better to the needs of their team members. The managers’ ability to use employees’ strengths and offer systematic recognition and encouragement engenders involvement, commitment and the willingness to go the extra mile.
