Coaching: Discovering the Best Version of Yourself

Research in the United States showed that while a training intervention with managers increased their productivity by an average of 22 %, adding a one-to-one (8-week) coaching intervention after the training pushed productivity up to 88 %. Another study found that a company's investment in providing coaching for its executives realized an average return on investment (ROI) of almost six times the cost of the coaching.

Because the evidence and our own experience confirming the positive impact of coaching is so overwhelming, coaching plays an integral part in most of our client journeys. During an initial consultation with clients we help identify their needs and how these could be addressed most effectively. Because people are a company's greatest asset, we usually start with the focus on individuals with a combination of StrengthsFinderTM and DISC360 assessments and coaching. 

During these one-on-one coaching sessions we use the results from these psychometric evaluations to help individuals understand what they have to offer in terms of their unique strengths and skills and how they can be the best possible versions of themselve by developing and using these. Ideally, the journey then continues to teams where we again follow a strengths-based approach to help teams allign individual abilities with team goals and results. 

StrengthsFinderTM Assessment and Coaching

Probably the single most important reason why people struggle to reach their full potential is the traditional fallacy that in order to be successful you need to fix your weaknesses. The futility of this approach had been revealed by more than 30 years of research among millions of people around the globe by the acclaimed Gallup Organization. This research has proven conclusively that the the best-led organizations know that the most direct path to individual, team, and organizational improvement begins with an investment in their employees' greatest talents. The key to success is not to focus on improving weaknesses, but to discover what's naturally right with people, and then build on it. Using Gallup's Clifton StrengthsFinderTM (CSF) assessment tool followed by a one-on-one session with a certified StrengthsFinder coach, SLI offers you the opportunity to find out what you and your team's personal strengths are and to develop them in order to become more effective and fulfilled in your personal and professional lifes.

DISC360 Assessment and Coaching

The DISC360TM is a validated online pscychometric assessmnent that measures your individual behavioral preferences related to your personality type. This will not only help you gain insight into the strenghts and challenges of your own behavioral style, but it will also enable you to understand why other people think and behave differently.
