This is a great time to become a professional coach!
Healdsburg, CA (PRWEB) July 09, 2013
Reporting from the 2012 ASTD Conference (American Society for Training & Development), annual losses in lost productivity from ‘actively disengaged’ employees have risen to $328 billion, up $28 billion from last year’s New York Times report. “These are shocking figures,” says Barbara Fagan, co-founder of Source Point Training (http://www.sourcepointtraining.com).
The New York Times report published September 3, 2011, compared the attitudes of "engaged employees" - those who work with passion and feel connected to the company - to "actively disengaged” employees - those who are unhappy, and actively project their lack of enthusiasm and motivation. The results were startling, revealing that "disengaged employees" were costing American businesses approximately $300 billion annually!
“This just proves that the actual cost from lost productivity is much worse than people thought. However, corporations are aware of the problem and have been taking action,” says Fagan. She points out that the demand for professional coaching has had a sharp incline since 2010, consistent with the 2012 Global Coaching Study, published by the ICF (International Coach Federation), showing that 23% of experienced and certified professional coaches in North America are reporting growth over the previous year. This growth is measurable within four trend indicators: number of clients, fees, sessions and total revenues.
“The demand for professional coaching is coming from all areas: public, private and non-profit, from organizations and corporations seeking to manage talent and retain employees to gain a competitive advantage,” says Fagan. “With an increasing mobile and diverse work force both culturally and generationally, coaching provides the resources within an organization to support employees in seeing their value and contribution.”
Source Point Training’s curriculum offers this competitive advantage and is approved by the ICF with 141 CCEs. We take one step further than most training companies, not only providing students with the skills of coaching but nurturing the ability to be with people in an impactful way that creates change. “When you become a Certified Professional Performance Coach (CPPC), you leave with the many skills needed to be an effective coach; to hear and observe what your clients are saying … and 'not saying'; the ability to open a new level of self-awareness within your clients; and to build greater personal accountability and ownership for the results that your clients want.”
When you go through a program like ours, you’re making a commitment for excellence. “I have been a successful coach for over 25 years and have seen the growth of this profession and the recognized credibility for coaching increase tremendously. I work with each class of coaches to ensure they have the foundational grounding and business knowledge to have a successful coaching practice,” says Fagan. This year, Fundamentals and Mastery of Performance Coaching begins September 13th and will take place in Phoenix, AZ.
Open enrollment for Source Point Training’s Fundamentals and Mastery of Performance Coaching are now open. “Students who enter the coaching business with ICF approved certification tend to do very well, and I invite anyone who is considering this career path to contact us and talk about our programs and how we can help them prepare for this opportunity for growth. The possibilities are limitless! This is a great time to become a professional coach!” says Fagan.
