The Business Case for Coaching in organizations

Joseph D'Souza - Monday, April 20, 2015

Individual leaders, executives and professionals believe in the value of coaching.

The challenge typically presents itself with:

  • Do we have a culture that is brave enough to explore?
  • Can coaching have an impact on performance?
  • Do we have a budget for coaching?
  • Does coaching a investment need to come from Training, the HR  department, a departmental or divisional budget?
  • Who are the right coaches to help us?

Individuals who have invested in coaching with QuestUniquE say:

  • I never had the opportunity to reflect on my personal journey before i.e. not just role performance, rather,
    1.  to think about myself as a human being
    2. to consciously be aware of my self in the context of my family and key relationships
    3. and yes about my professional life though only as a support of 1 and 2 above
  • I can see how coaching can help others in my team
  • I can see how coaching can help the culture in this organization
  • It is amazing how the pressure of task performance overrides engaging with my colleagues as fellow human beings
  • Leading others is actually easy when you respect others
  • Coaching taught me about my own integrity and the value in others
  • My coaching journey actually enhanced my communications inside and outside the company
  • It is difficult to put into words what this coaching is doing for me - I am a different person, yet it is still me
  • Reflecting of my values, strengths, personality, emotional intelligence, and my holistic self actually gives context, meaning and purpose. Yes these are the key anchors that helped me.
  • Can you believe I discussed, shared and talked about my passions at work... and got respect for it?
  • People say I have changed - become calmer, tolerant, patient and even someone to go to!
  • I used to think I was very busy. In fact, I was well under utilized in terms of my own potential.
  • Getting feedback from the coaching mirror of reflection enables me to give others better value adding feedback
  • The experience of coaching has taught me about the art of separating the problem whilst having the conversation
  • Coaching is not a bad word associated with poor performance. Quite the contrary!
  • There is a safe environment that coaching allows where I can test my thoughts
  • Coaching allowed me to positively identify potential in others even if it means to replace me
  • Coaching taught me that  I am not in competition with others
