Can a Company Career & Life Coach Impact Your Bottom Line?...
One of the most successful CEOs think so...and his company was recently bought by Amazon for $850 million dollars.
That company? Zappos - one of the most successful dot coms of the past 10 years.
If you could have a "Coach-on-Call" with no dollar investment - would you provide that for your employees? Well now you can.
Very simply, I am now making my coaching available to companies with no initial cost. The Coach-on-Call program is a pay as you go employee benefit that you can make available right now.
I can coach on site, via phone, or Skype. The time spent with an employee is billable in time blocks and the blocks are determined prior to the coaching time. There is also the option of an affordable monthly retainer.
Ok...back to the original question, I could provide a bunch of HR statistics about retention, but from a pure human perspective..read a day in the life the Zappos coach, then draw your own conclusion.
In His Own Words - Coach Vik from Zappos shares what he does that makes a difference in the productivity of an employee.
1) Blurred Boundaries. Today there is no separation between work and life. Problems outside of work are brought into work. A company Life Coach will benefit you by sitting down with troubled or upset employees and help them overcome their problems. Did you know that managers spend 50% of their time dealing with staff interpersonal issues? How much more time would you save by hiring a Company Life Coach to deal with their problems?
2) How are you doing? A question we are asked on a daily basis, but who really cares? A Company Life Coach cares what you are thinking about and how you are feeling. Thoughts and feelings directly determine how you will perform. I am amazed at how many workers walk into a session with me feeling very frustrated, then leave feeling refreshed and ready to conquer the world! Your thoughts and feelings "trigger" your actions. Sometimes, we as workers just need someone to validate how we are feeling. Once we are understood, we're ready to perform at a high level.
3) Motivation. One of my favorite aspects of being a Life Coach is understanding different personalities. No two people are alike. Each person is unique. A Company Life Coach identifies what motivates each worker, then empowers them to take action. Ever watch an inspiring story on TV and feel motivated to make a difference? That's how you feel at the conclusion of each Life Coaching session. We choose to change.
