Coaching Solutions from Corporate Education Group Stimulate Performance Improvement and Individual Growth

Organizations now can integrate corporate training and coaching solutions for sustainable change

CHELMSFORD, MA — March 5, 2013 — Corporate Education Group (CEG), a premier provider of corporate training and consulting services, today unveiled a suite of Corporate Coaching Solutions to help business professionals exceed performance improvement objectives and stimulate personal career growth. The five prepackaged solutions are designed to be flexible and tailored to meet individual and organizational needs; personalized to map to candidates' strengths and weaknesses; and collaborative to ensure all key stakeholders' requirements are successfully integrated into the program.

According to the International Coach Federation (ICF), in 2012 almost $2 billion was spent globally on coaching services. CEG's Corporate Coaching Solutions support the most common coaching objectives: cultivating leadership, overcoming a specific challenge or problem; and supporting a successful transition to a new organization or to a new position. ICF studies also find that companies using professional coaching for business reasons have seen a median return of seven times their initial investment.

"As a provider of corporate training solutions, we've seen the demand for coaching rise rapidly in the last few years," said John Bonanno, president of CEG. "Our clients are looking beyond specialized skills training to foster high performers and cultivate leaders within the organization, especially as employees are asked to assume more responsibility and be tactical contributors as well as strategic enablers. In response to that need, CEG developed its Corporate Coaching Solutions, which are built on the same premise as our Corporate Training Solutions: to optimize individual and business performance."

CEG's Corporate Coaching Solutions are designed to integrate with its Corporate Training Solutions enabling participants to immediately put new skills into practice and reinforce learning through real-world application. Organizations that opt to follow up training with a coaching program can ensure measurable outcomes and sustainable change.

Star Dargin, Corporate Coaching Solutions program manager for CEG, has been successfully coaching business professionals for more than 15 years. "Coaching is not a one-size-fits-all strategy. It needs to be flexible, personal and collaborative — ensuring that not only the goals of the candidate, but those of the sponsor—and the organization—are accounted for and met. CEG's Corporate Coaching Solutions enable individuals to successfully maximize their professional potential with one-on-one mentoring to overcome obstacles and focus on results."

CEG's Corporate Coaching Solutions are delivered by a roster of industry-certified coaching experts and built with a mix of coaching and mentoring techniques designed to achieve desired outcomes with tangible results. Solutions range from short-term intensive coaching that achieves immediate results to on-going mentoring relationships for more extensive and strategic personal development. Each program is personalized for the coaching candidate and follows a five-step coaching methodology, but with varying engagement durations, assessment levels, communication modes and session lengths. All CEG Corporate Coaching Solutions include:

  • specific and measurable outcomes agreed upon by all stakeholders;
  • a customized plan, including what's needed to sustain success;
  • access to the coach between coaching sessions;
  • relevant homework between sessions; and
  • additional learning resources.
