is coaching worth the investment?
There are many ways to measure the effectiveness and ROI of coaching but there are several studies showing tangible and intangible evidence on the benefits of engaging a coach and investing in a culture of coaching:
Studies show that the ROI can vary but the numbers generally fall in the 5x to 10x range with a median of 7x return-on-investment. In one study, 28% of participants reported an ROI between 10x – 49x and 19% (almost one-fifth) indicated an ROI of at least 50x. (PricewaterhouseCoopers and Association Resource Centre Inc., 2009)
A second study compared three stock portfolios comprised only of companies that spend aggressively on employee development. Each outperformed the S&P 500 by 17-35% during 2003. (How’s Your Return on People? Harvard Business Review, Laurie Bassi and Daniel McMurrer, 2004)
Researchers have also found that benefits include “bench strength” and “improved teamwork” and “collaboration.” Also, quality of work product or services was improved by 7.5% and productivity was up by 7.3% in a professional services firm that invested in coaching. Net revenue was estimated to have increased by 6.5% and cost of operations was down by 6.3%. (The Business Impact of Leadership Coaching at a Professional Services Firm, Merrill C. Anderson, PhD, 2006)
On the intangible side, the benefits are also numerous. An Executive who leads a slate of direct reports and improves upon his or her leadership, communication, and overall managerial skills can better manage relationships with as well as motivate numerous key direct reports, resulting in improved retention and performance in the department. Increased rapport between a coachee and peers, subordinates and higher-level Executives can result in improved collaboration on innovation, operations or other activities that require a close working relationship.
The return, of course, varies by individual and team and by how much they put into the engagement.
Much like personal training, the client owns the work and the results!
“Every famous athlete, every famous performer has somebody who’s a coach, somebody who can watch what they’re doing and say: ‘Is that what you really meant?’ Giving them perspective. The one thing that people are never good at is seeing themselves as others see them. A coach really, really helps.”
