Here are some quotes regarding the value of coaching:
"[Executives should seek coaching] when they feel a change in behavior - either in themselves or in their team-members - can make a significant difference in the long-term success of the organization." - Marshall Goldsmith
"Coaches are not for the meek. They're for people who value unambiguous feedback. All coaches have one thing in common. It's that they are ruthlessly results - oriented." - Fast Company Magazine
"Business coaching is attracting America's top CEOs because, put simply, it works. In fact, when asked for a conservative estimate of monetary payoff from the coaching they got...managers described an average return of more than $100,000, or about six times what the coaching had cost their companies." - Fortune Magazine
" I absolutely believe that people, unless coached, never reach their full potential." - Bob Nardelli, CEO, Home Depot
"In a 2014 survey by Right Management consultants, 86% of companies said they used coaching to sharpen skills of individuals who have been identified as future leaders." - Harvard Business School
" I never cease to be amazed at the power of the coaching process to draw out the skills or talent that was previously hidden within an individual, and which invariably finds a way to solve a problem previously thought unsolvable." John Russell, Managing Director, Harley Davidson Europe Ltd.
