Behind every great performer is a great coach and that for college students, entrepreneurs, executives, network marketers and anybody else who seeks increased productivity and the ability to effectively lead others,
HEALDSBURG, CA (PRWEB) March 30, 2012
Source Point Training (http://www.sourcepointtraining.com) is bringing its successful Leadership coaching program to Charlotte, NC this April. Source Point Training co-founder and company president Barbara Fagan, points to the unique features and benefits of professional coaching.
“Muhammad Ali had Angelo Dundee. UCLA Bruins had John Wooden. The Green Bay Packers had Vince Lombardi. They all had coaches and they went on to be great performers," says Fagan. “Behind every great performer is a great coach and that for college students, entrepreneurs, executives, network marketers and anybody else who seeks increased productivity and the ability to effectively lead others, Leadership Source is the key to their success.”
A strong case is building internationally that is solidly in favor of professional coaching. According to new research conducted by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) in London, UK, businesses can use coaching to create added value and maximize the performance of their employees. Another report from the Aberdeen Group, based in Boston, MA, reports that businesses that invest in employee training tend to reap the benefits in terms of improved engagement and retention levels.
According to a study conducted in 2008 by PricewaterhouseCoopers and Association Resource Centre, Inc., companies that use professional coaching reported a median return of seven times their initial investment. In a story that appeared on CNN, 68% of individuals surveyed indicated that they had at least made back their initial investment in coaching in increased earnings from personal salaries or investments.
“People ask me, what’s behind the trend for more professional coaching?” Fagan says. “It comes down to math. Corporations and individuals have found that coaching is good for the bottom line. It is profitable for individuals because there is real gain from the investment in terms of increased personal productivity. Corporations also see that it enhances organizational cohesiveness among employees and management.”
Fagan points to work that Source Point Training worked closely with the Greater Charlotte YMCA last year. “We found that the people in Charlotte are very committed to increasing their leadership skills as a way to make a greater contribution to their members and to be in service to their community,” she states. “What they have shared is that they had experienced a well-organized, results-generating training. They also have a desire to have their colleagues attend the training, and that the training combined with the coaching brought them to new levels in their personal and professional lives and that the course exceeded their expectations.”
Source Point Training’s Leadership Source programs are among the most sought-after in the United States. This program is open to all professionals and college students in the vicinity of Charlotte, NC area including Atlanta, GA, Columbia, SC, and Richmond, VA.

“People who attend our leadership trainings get added benefits from the 10 weeks of performance based coaching that assures attainment of goals and retention of key leadership principles to success. That's how our training is a key difference from other leadership trainings,” says Fagan.
