Many misconceptions exist about the benefits of skills and leadership coaching. That’s because due to the qualitative, subjective nature of coaching work, the return on investment (ROI) has been difficult to quantify.

Companies like Engine Room Business Innovation have the data to track the personal and professional changes that matter most, validating this investment.

Learning Agility + Strength Finder assessment tools specifically designed to reflect behaviours that people can change/manage.

  1. Greater self-awareness. 
  2. Improved communication

What Makes a Person Excel? Strengths-based approach to development and performance managment

A strength-based development strategy starts by focusing on what people do well. It then emphasises and builds on those strengths to help individuals become even more productive.  

  • A person's greatest talents - the ways in which they most naturally think, feel and behave - represent their innate power and potential. Below are some key principles that strength coaching utilises for achieving the best results for individuals:
  • We focus on developing a person's talents into strengths and managing their weaknesses.
  • We know that only some behaviours can be learned - so we focus on these.
  • The best in any role, deliver the same outcomes using different behaviours - so we teach flexibility.
  • Fixing weaknesses prevents failure; building strengths leads to excellence - hence the primary focus is on strength development.

In the best organisations, when compared with their peers, employees who received strengths-based development were found to have up to 18% increased performance*

*including performance ratings, productivity and sales data

Coaching helps to improve individual focus and  performance while developing greater personal and professional competence. 

Helping individuals to focus, integrate business and personal priorities, sharpen their skills and overcome hurdles to better performance.

The benefits of coaching – it offers an unbiased outsider’s view. Having an objective outsider provides two immediate benefits:

  1. They help us see ourselves and our actions and behaviours in a way that we generally cannot on our own.
  2. They help keep us accountable for our goals and plans. 
The program provides:
  • Professional support from an experienced coach dedicated to unleashing the highest potential of individuals.
  • A tailored approach to meet business objectives and the individual’s specific needs and constraints.
  • Proven, world-class tools and instruments for improving performance  and changing behaviour.

One of the most common misconceptions about coaching is that it only benefits those who are executive-level leaders. Fact – Coaching skills can be effective at any level.

Everyone can benefit from having the tools to better understand and regulate themselves. Everyone can benefit from having the skills and resources to improve their own well-being. Everyone can benefit from developing mental strength and resilience.

No matter what stage you’re at in your career — or whether you’re working with a personal or professional coach — coaching can make a difference.

We use the Holistic Coaching Style

The holistic approach to coaching considers the whole person when creating creates goals and tactics. The coach does not typically prioritise one aspect of the coachees’ life over another. This can benefit clients seeking guidance in a variety of areas, simultaneously. The holistic coaching style can also encourage clients to bring their whole selves to work, which has proven to increase productivity and retention.
