Companies spend over $375 billion every year on corporate training. However, the typical training experience has been shown to increase employee productivity only by 20-25%, but when you combine customized training and corporate coaching together employee productivity explodes past 80%.

SFO consultants offers a range of coaching, consulting and training programs. We tailor each training to the specific needs of the organization, executives and managers.

Studies have shown that coaching and training produce a 529% ROI, as well as significant intangible benefits to the business. When the financial benefits of employee retention are rolled into the mix, the ROI increases to nearly eight to one, or 788 %.
SFO coaches and trains to provide impact and results for executives, managers and their organizations.  We do this by increasing the effectiveness within an organization and improving overall job satisfaction and retention. Coaching and training are two of the principal tools businesses have for developing their people.  This is especially critical at the executive level because busy executives have very few other means of continuing their growth and development.
Recent studies show that training alone increased productivity by 22%, but when training was combined with coaching, productivity increased by 88%.

Fortune magazine recently reported the results of a poll of executives and upper level managers who had 6 – 12 months of executive coaching. These executives were asked to give a “conservative estimate of the monetary payoff from the coaching they received.”  The polled executives placed a value on the coaching that was six times greater than the investment the company made in the coaching services.

A bit more information about this study:

  • 60 % of the executives in the study were ages 40 – 49
  • 50 % held positions of vice president or above
  • 33 % earned more than $200,000 per year
  • 77 % of the executives reported improved working relationships with direct reports
  • 71 % reported improved working relationships with supervisors
  • 63 % reported improved working relationships with peers.
  • Participants also cited a marked increase in job satisfaction and organizational commitment as a result of coaching.

Bottom line:

Training and coaching bring impact and results. At SFO Consultants, we believe results are 80% Psychology and 20% Mechanics.
SFO has its roots in psychology, but should not be confused with therapy or counseling, since it deals with functional, not dysfunctional, people and emphasizes strengths and achievements rather than weaknesses and problems.
