According to a recent article in the Havard Business Review, professional coaches are no longer only employed to assist toxic leaders, but to help existing managers and supervisors develop professionally. The article stated the top three reasons to hire an executive coach are:

  • 48% of those surveyed stated they hired a coach to develop high potentials or facilitate a transition
  • 26% stated that coaches act as a sounding board
  • And 12% engaged coaches to address derailing behavior

From the International Coach Federation, according to their studies and research, these are some of the performance improvement you or your organization can experience from having a qualified unbiased 3rd party participant.
