From that perspective, the need for coaching has never been more urgent in the business environment.
How do leaders feel about coaching?
Again and again, leaders report that coaching is the one thing that brings the most meaning to their role. It’s gratifying in a way that goes beyond achieving quarterly objectives. The bottom line? Coaching is one of those rare leadership tools that deliver measurable benefits for everyone involved—employees, organizations, and the coaches themselves.
