Executive Coaching Investment Yields Notable Financial Return

Executive Coaching yields return on investment of almost six times the initial investment in a typical coaching assignment — or a return of more than $100,000 per executive.”
– The Manchester Group

Leadership Training Pays for Itself and Then Some

A recent analysis conducted by a utilities services company found that, 6 months after leadership training was provided to operations team leaders, they saw a 23% improvement in productivity, an 18% improvement in quality and a 14.5% improvement in efficiency. Applying monetary value to each and factoring in the cost of the training, they calculated a 652% return on their training investment.
