HEALDSBURG, CA (PRWEB) September 14, 2012
Having recently watched the Olympics in London this year, we realize the importance of having a coach with the skills to raise the bar on individual performance. The athletes all had coaches and they got there by challenging their personal best. Professional coaching is being adopted around the world as the fastest and most effective way to achieve higher levels of excellence and retain top talent in organizations says Barbara Fagan, master coach and co-founder of Source Point Training (http://www.sourcepointtraining.com).
Announced at the 2012 ASTD Conference, $328 Billion is lost due to "actively disengaged" employees. According to a new report from the Aberdeen Group, based in Boston, MA states, businesses that invest in employee training tend to reap the benefits in terms of improved engagement and retention levels.
There is a stronger case than ever for offering employee coaching in the workplace, according to new research conducted by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) based in the UK. The report, entitled "Taking the Temperature of Coaching," highlights coaching as a cornerstone of high performance that focuses on the professional development of individual employees. "Coaching continues to be important in maintaining high performance and developing more agile employees, work practices and organizations [sic]," says Dr. John McGurk, adviser for learning and talent at CIPD.
"This type of professional development is not a fad," Fagan says. "It’s a strong trend that has been building for more than 20 years. The fact is, about half of companies in the U.S. currently implement coaching programs for their employees and staff." The American Management Association recently reported that 37% of U.S. businesses remaining say that they are planning to start in the near future.
"It comes down to math." says Fagan. "Corporations have discovered that coaching is good for the bottom line. It is profitable because they see real gain from their investment in terms of increased productivity in developing talent and employee engagement."
Source Point Training is set to bring its successful Leadership Source: Lead with Purpose and Vision to Phoenix, AZ.
Training Location: PHOENIX, AZ

"They are coached to lead with purpose and vision while developing their unique style of leadership, to communicate and enroll collaborative partnerships and to model accountability that builds trust and integrity."
"Teaming up with Anne Bruce, recognized key note speaker and author is a great partnership for us" says Fagan.

Her book is a powerful toolkit and reference guide filled with real-world tips and techniques of successful leaders.
