“We have millions and millions of thoughts that are floating around in our brains. A lot of them are unconscious or subconscious, and the idea of journaling is to bring them forward so they are no longer floating but in front of you.” – Kim Ades

Frame of Mind Coaching
Did you know that Zappos.com has a full-time goals coach who works with any employee – not just management – helping them create better lives. Zappos isn’t the only company that uses coaches. In fact, coaching is very popular. Harvard Business Review reports that coaching is a $1 billion a year industry.
Executives and individuals, like you, are using coaches to catapult their careers and create better, more fulfilling, richer lives. So what exactly is a coach? According to the The International Coach Federation (ICF) — the leading global coaching organization and professional association for coaches – coaching is defined as “partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.”
In a 2009 study of the professional coaching industry – by the Chartered Institute of Personnel Development (CIPD) – found that coaching was used by 90% of organizations surveyed and that even in the economic downturn, 70% report that they are increasing or maintaining their commitment to coaching.
Coaching is clearly popular, but what does it work?
The ROI from professional coaching is astonishing. According to a Manchester Consulting Group study of Fortune 100 executives, the Economic Times reports “coaching resulted in a ROI of almost six times the program cost as well as a 77% improvement in relationships, 67% improvement in teamwork, 61% improvement in job satisfaction and 48% improvement in quality.” Additionally, a study of Fortune 500 telecommunications companies by MatrixGlobal found executive coaching resulted in a 529% ROI. The CIPD concludes “coaching is not just perceived as a nice-to-have intervention.”
