Hiring a personal development coach for your employees may seem outrageous, but research has shown that it can help both employees and employers achieve better satisfaction and higher revenue.
One study found that more than 60% of employees who were coached got smarter in goal setting and experienced a more balanced life. More than 50% felt lower levels of stress and became more self-confident on the job.
Another study revealed that some companies who hire personal development coaches have increased their income by 46 percent.
How does it work?
Personal development coaches can significantly raise performance levels by :
- Helping employees evaluate their strengths and weaknesses objectively, take stock of their performance, and pinpoint both failures and accomplishments.
- Guiding your employees through the process of mapping out their career plans and help them feel more confident about their ability to overcome obstacles.
- Promoting self-discipline, helping keep employees motivated through slumps and helping keep them focused on their goals.
On a broader level, businesses can take their management teams to seminars or workshops presented by personal development coaches on popular topics such as:
1) Team management
2) Team motivation
3) Time management
4) Overall Productivity
Personal development coaching is just now coming to the forefront of successful business practices in the United States. It can help create stronger leaders, more productive team members, and an overall better company environment. When a company is full of great leaders, the greatness spreads to everyone else in the company. This makes the company more successful overall: higher profits, better team interaction, better communication, new and fresh ideas being suggested, and an overall better work atmosphere. Personal development coaching can create a win-win situation for you, your employer, and your employees.
