Impact of Coaching

The impact of coaching has been notoriously hard to quantify. While many executives ‘feel’ they have benefited from coaching, few studies have provided ‘hard’ evidence of a significant return on investment. This white paper suggests how it’s possible to quantify an increase in an executive’s objective energy levels and a reduction in their stress levels and relate this to potential financial benefits for the organisation.

Across all 12 measures, including the objective HRV measure, coaching subjects saw improvements in positive factors and reductions in negative factors. The biggest changes were observed in emotional management (37% improvement) and stress (54% reduction). Being able to manage your emotions is critical to gaining control over your life and having emotional intelligence when making decisions especially during inevitable stressful periods. Furthermore, the coaching subjects even seemed to buck the natural aging process, at least as far as HRV is concerned. Instead of a 3.5% expected decline in HRV over one year, the coachees experienced a 15% increase in HRV. This change is likely to have had significant effects on the coachees in terms of health, energy levels, dynamism and brain function (decision-making), as previous research9 has shown. In addition to the psychological benefit and the ability to objectively increase energy levels while reversing the aging process, one of the most compelling reasons for leaders to commit to developmental coaching is the financial benefits of doing so. We have shown a minimum ROI of £33k for an executive earning £100k. For a board member earning £1m per annum the ROI is at least £300k, and that is before you factor in the benefit of improved decision making or the avoidance of errors by the leader or their reports. In conclusion, there is now very compelling financial reasons why organisations should invest in quality developmental coaching.
