A new study reporting leadership coaching improves executive performance during the coronavirus pandemic
NOVI, MI, September 22, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ — Elite athletes train with coaches for thousands of hours in preparation for that one key moment. The stakes are high. The world is watching. This single performance will mean the difference between victory and defeat.
In the world of business, 2020 is such a time for leaders of people and organizations. The stakes are high, and their performance matters. Leaders could have turned to many different experiences in their life to support them as they responded to COVID-19. The reason leaders relied on their coaching during this time is because, as they also reported, their coaching provided them with insights that helped them better navigate the uncertainty that was unfolding in front of them.
“93% of Dion Leadership Coachees reported that Leadership Coaching better equipped them to utilize new behavior required during COVID-19.”
Simply put, leadership coaching works. It has been particularly useful in supporting recently coached leaders as they navigate what may be the most difficult year in their career. The percent of coachees in our study reporting specific benefits from coaching are listed below.
“Coaching helped me be a better communicator and leader. COVID has been the most difficult time in many people’s lives. Uncertainty about their own health, the safety of their families, the security of their jobs has contributed to unprecedented stress levels for everyone. Understanding how to have an empathetic discussion about fear and concerns with staff in an open and supportive manner was the most valuable lesson I learned in coaching!”
