Coaching has high ROI
According to the American Management Association, organizations that use coaching reported stronger market performance. A global survey of coaching clients by PriceWaterhouseCoopers and the Association Resource Center concluded that the mean ROI for companies investing in coaching was seven times that of the initial investment. A quarter of the companies in the survey reported an ROI of 10 to 49 times investment.
I can cite elements of my track record that increase cited ROI by orders of magnitude.
“Exits are great but it’s better to do it as a choice, not a consequence of bad moda operandi.”
― Richie Norton
We have seen too many founders wait until it was time for an exit before thinking about how to maximize value at the exit. That cost them a lot. I do not mean getting 20% less for the company, I mean getting 200% more if they had prepared in advance.
My Experience-Based Approach
“The only source of knowledge is experience.”
– Albert Einstein
I will say it again.
I am good at what I do because I have been through the company building and exit process dozens of times. For three decades I was a venture capitalist that financed dozens of companies the majority of which had successful exits. I've been a CEO nine times and have managed six companies through periods of disruption to successful exits. I have proven my ability to transfer what I learned over 5 decades to others as a coach. And, yes, I have started four companies, the latest of which was formed mid 2022.
