In episode 94 of “The JoyPowered® Workspace Podcast,” JoDee and Susan discuss personal coaching. Topics include the tools used to enhance coaching, transparency when a company hires an executive coach for an employee, and the experiences of some of JoDee and Susan’s coaching clients.
The International Coaching Federation estimates that personal coaching is over a $1 billion business now and that it will reach nearly $1.4 billion before the end of 2022. It’s not just executive coaching anymore – it’s coaching at all levels. JoDee and Susan both do coaching as part of their HR consulting practices, and they share how they got started with coaching and what their approaches are with coaching clients.
It’s important for everyone involved to know that when a company hires a coach to work with one of its employees, both the company and the employee are the client. The process should be transparent, and the goal is for everyone to have a healthy relationship with open, honest conversations long after the coach leaves. JoDee and Susan asked some of their former coaching clients to share their experiences with coaching. They describe what led them to work with a coach, what they got out of it, when they would recommend it, what surprised them, and more.

In the news, a study reported that a third of Millennials and Gen Zs have tapped into their 401(k)s.
