Why Coaching is Catching On?


While I may be one of the most passionate advocates of coaching, I am not alone. The coaching industry is exploding (over 50,000 practitioners and $1 billion) as more and more people experience the power of coaching to transform individuals, teams and organizations.

The old ways of managing and leading are not effective in today’s environment. Everyday people are turning to coaching as a new way to lead and manage. And they are getting powerful results. Why do coaching skills work so well in this new environment? Here are a few of the key reasons.

  • Results. Organizations that have implemented a coaching culture are seeing results in improved employee engagement, communication effectiveness and improvements to the bottom line. 

  • The new work environment requires new leadership skills. There has been a tremendous shift from routine, repetitive measurable work, to work that involves critical thinking, analysis and creativity. The old carrot and stick approach to leadership no longer works and can even have devastating results in today's organization. 

  • Adaptability and sustainability. The new work environment requires a way to lead that will produce positive and sustainable results; a leadership approach that is continuously adaptable to internal and external change.

Are you looking for new ways to lead and manage? Do you feel stuck in your career? Team dynamics got you down? If you haven’t already joined the coaching movement I have a special offer. We are holding a special virtual Using Coaching to Lead™ class.

Using Coaching to Lead™ is a 2-part class that provides an overview and introduction to coaching. This is a hands-on class where you will learn what coaching is, how it is being used to transform the work environment and two coaching skills you can start utilizing immediately.

Find out what all the excitement is about and how you can benefit from the power of coaching. The class is offered as two 90-minute virtual sessions for a total of 3 hours of focused learning. We are offering this at a special introductory price of $29 – a $229 value. Spend just 3 hours to learn first-hand how coaching can help you take your career, team and organization to the next level.

Who should attend

The class is designed for those thinking of becoming a coach and those interested in bringing coaching to their organization. If you think coaching may be right for you and / or your organization but you still have questions or would like to learn more before making a bigger commitment, this class is for you.

What you will learn

Topics covered in this class include;

  • An exploration of what coaching is and is not
  • Definition of coaching
  • Understanding the distinction between mentoring, managing and coaching
  • The impact that coaching has on individuals, teams and organizations
  • Overview and live demonstration of two key coaching skills: Listening and Questioning
  • AND you will walk away with your action plan
