Effectiveness Coaching

 

 "I undertook coaching with Veronica over a two year period to work on my effectiveness and visibility within my company. Veronica has a wealth of knowledge in the subject, and guided me to think critically about my approach in the workplace, and implement improvements. She was very approachable, enthusiastic, and genuinely had my best interest at heart. I highly recommend her." Cameron Yates, Senior Engineer.

There are many research findings that demonstrate the benefits of coaching. Below are some examples of these:

 

  • A study conducted by MetrixGlobal on a Fortune 500 telecommunications firm found that executive coaching resulted in an ROI of 529 percent at the firm.[1]

  • PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), made executive coaching a core business strategy in 1998. The company has formed an internal faculty of executive Coaching which is responsible for supporting the coaching program for partners and senior staff. The Human Capital Leader at PwC estimated the return on investment on the initiative of approximately six dollars for every one dollar invested.[2]

  • According to Alastair Robertson, manager of Accenture's worldwide leadership development practice, a large employer in the hospitality industry saved between $30.7 and $61.2 billion by coaching its top 200 executives.[3]

 

Effectiveness coaching supports individuals to become more effective in the workplace. The focus is on defining goals and formatting and action plans to achieve these based on the individuals needs.

 

Effectiveness coaching is usually 6 - 8 sessions and each session is usually 60 – 90 minutes in duration. Sessions are usually scheduled approximately 2 - 3 weeks apart. The exact number of sessions, their duration and frequency is determined based on the individual needs and objectives of the individual.
