Xerox Corporation carried out several studies on coaching. They determined that in the absence of follow-up coaching to their training classes, 87% of the skills change brought about by the program was lost.

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 RussellManaging Director, Harley Davidson Europe Ltd.

What’s really driving the boom in coaching, is this: as we move from 30 miles an hour to 70 to 120 to 180……as we go from driving straight down the road to making right turns and left turns to abandoning cars and getting motorcycles…the whole game changes, and a lot of people are trying to keep up, learn how not to fall.

I absolutely believe that people, unless coached, never reach their maximum capabilities.

Coaching is a confidential, individually tailored engagement designed to support professional and personal development. The coaching process helps people progress through identifying roadblocks, generating new insights, developing positive new habits and creating clear pathways toward defined goals.

Our approach to coaching is simple: We are coachee-focused (that means we don’t bring our own agenda), results-oriented and committed to working deeply to improve thinking, which brings about positive, sustainable change. We work together with our clients to set objectives and design a realistic timeline for the engagement.

Learning happens in many ways, but sometimes the deepest insights require the help of a skilled, experienced observer. For us, coaching is a natural companion to the learning experiences we create at Thought Design. Like hiring a trainer to help you prepare for a big race, engaging a coach can often make the difference in how effectively people reach their potential and achieve their goals.

Coaching engagements are typically scheduled weekly or bi-weekly in one hour sessions. The length of a coaching engagement is determined mutually by the coach and coachee, but is typically twelve to twenty sessions.
