"Coaching is a conversation which creates expedited results and enhanced relationships" - Jennifer Britton
I like to describe some of the benefits of coaching as a focused conversation space which helps people - individuals, groups, teams - get results faster, quicker and better, and also enhanced relationships - things like stonger trust, better ability to work across differences, clarity around where collaborative goals are aligned and not.
Benefits of coaching have been identified as:
Enhanced productivity measures such as:
•Improved work performance (70%)
•Improved business management (61%)
•Improved time management (57%)
•Improved team effectiveness (51%)
and Enhanced positivity measures such as:
•Increased self-confidence (80%)
•Increased relationships (73%)
•Improved communication skills (72%)
•Improved work life balance (67%)

If you leverage coaching at your organization what do you see as the benefits? What supports enhanced results and relationships?
As a team this week have some discussion around how coaching can support the team, or what it will take to support enhanced results and relationships.
Have a great Thursday,
