Typically, people consider coaching as a way to catalyze some type of change: change in career, change in behavior, change in business results or income and change in life satisfaction.  Most often, coaching interventions involve employing an individual who serves as a coach to help facilitate that change, but what would it look like if individuals could coach themselves?  More importantly, is it really possible for self-coaching to effect positive change?!
That’s what researchers set out to discover in a recent self-coaching program with managers of a plastics manufacturing organization.  Utilizing a quasi-experimental design, two groups of managers were formed: a control group, which received no self-coaching intervention; and an experimental group, which received the self-coaching intervention. The self-coaching intervention included: Five self-coaching skills that were taught to managers during a 90-day learning program, combining classroom and online instruction, on-the-job skills practice, journaling and peer interaction to learn, apply and develop a regular habit of employing self-coaching behaviors.

Attend this webinar to learn what is self-coaching and how researchers used the ROI Methodology(TM) to determine pay off and ROI of a self-coaching solution.
