Primed for Success: Why businesses need to coach for soft skills

Working with Dyslexia

Business leaders strive to get the best out of their workforces but too often fall short. Research consistently shows that coaching makes a real impact on the productivity and fulfilment of employees.

We surveyed 4,000 employees across Europe to understand the impact and importance of coaching.

The results show that two in three workers (67%) who have had training or skills coaching say it has improved their overall job performance. Despite this, three in ten (28%) of employees are not being offered any coaching by their firms at all. And too often, even when coaching is available it’s not being taken up.

“Many people don’t realise the full extent of what coaching can do and the issues it can address. There are many non-technical skills which people neglect but which are essential for a successful team and business.”
