When done right, the return on executive coaching is substantial. According to Korn Ferry, coaching is widely regarded as a potent development force.
De Meuse and Dai (2009), in examining research on coaching effectiveness, reported that in one study 96% of organizations saw individual performances improve after they introduced coaching.
Nearly as many (92%) also reported improvements in leadership and management effectiveness (Coaching Counts 2007).
In another study, 77% of the respondents indicated that coaching had a significant or very significant impact on at least one of nine business measures. Productivity (60%) and employee satisfaction (53%) were cited as being most improved by the coaching (Anderson 2001). *
