The sudden arrival of COVID-19 put a lot of companies under extreme pressure, making workplaces a much more complex and demanding environment. Even though businesses have opened up and life has returned to normalcy per se, the world of work seems to have been changed forever. And it is still changing! In such a fast-paced and dynamic scenario, businesses need to understand that if they want to succeed, they must invest in their people’s well-being and build their confidence and resilience. This would empower them, so they are able to work at their highest point of contribution and deliver business results. This can be done by investing in leadership coaching.

Leadership coaches work closely with leaders to help them harness their natural resources to cope better, learn and respond to any struggles they face. They do this by developing both their awareness of themselves and their awareness of those around them and channelling this awareness to be more purposeful and effective in their everyday job roles.

Here we have collated 9 of our favourite statistics around leadership coaching and its impact on business results.
