Richard Söderblom is the productivity expert when it comes to increasing your performance

“Many of the world’s most admired corporations, from GE to Goldman Sachs, invest in coaching. Annual spending on coaching in the U.S. Is estimated at roughly $1 billion.” – Harvard Business Review

With competition on the rise and our work and personal lives becoming more stressful by the day we need to continually find ways to keep productivity at the forefront in everything we do.

My name is Richard Söderblom and I am the SuperStar coach that people turn to when they get stuck. I bring out the super star in employees.

First of all, what is coaching?

Everyone is familiar with the concept of coaching in sport. Business and life coaching is similar in principle in the sense that one benefits from the guidance of a coach in improving a certain area of one’s life or work.

Wikipedia has this to say on coaching:

Coaching, is a teaching, training or development process via which an individual is supported while achieving a specific personal or professional result or goal. The individual receiving coaching may be referred to as the client or coachee. Occasionally, the term coaching may be applied to an informal relationship between two individuals where one has greater experience and expertise than the other and offers advice and guidance as the other goes through a learning process. This form of coaching is similar to mentoring.

Coaching can cover any area of your life where you feel you need help in achieving what you desire.

I provide specialised coaching that focuses on increasing productivity and achieving results. Not only in the workplace but in personal life as well. I offer personal one on one coaching as well as group coaching, virtual coaching and corporate coaching to employees.

Often, I am asked what is the difference between coaching and mentoring?

Simply put, Mentoring is relationship oriented and coaching is task oriented.

What I mean by this is that coaching focuses on issues, such as managing time more effectively, learning how to lead a team better etc. Mentoring is about providing an environment where the mentee shares what issues affect their personal and professional success. Although specific learning goals or competencies may be used as a basis for creating the relationship, its focus goes beyond these areas to include things, such as work/life balance, self-confidence, self-perception, and how the personal influences the professional.

Coaching is also short-term where as mentoring is more long-term.

Are you valuable?

To be of value, one needs certain traits. One of these is to be productive in what you do, whether for personal goals or in the workplace.

If you want to increase your value to your employer, maybe you are looking at an increase or an upcoming promotion, the best possible way is to increase your productivity. If you can increase your productivity you instantly become more valuable to the company and the business can see a greater ROI.

This means that you will become more successful in achieving your goals, which in turn builds your self-esteem, motivates you more and brings more joy to your life.

I you are looking at finding ways to become more productive or if you are looking at increasing the productivity of your staff, then please contact me today to see how I can assist.

Some quick stats on coaching

A 2008 survey conducted by the International Coach Federation found that “82% of clients reported they were very satisfied with their coaching results” and “96% of clients say they would repeat their coaching experience.” Few products or services inspire 96 out of a 100 customers to repeat their experience — high praise indeed.

And according to the 2009 ICF Global Coaching Client Study, companies that use or have used professional coaching for business reasons have seen a median return on investment of seven times their initial investment. Individual clients reported a median return on investment of 3.44 times their investment. Where else can you get a minimum of 344% return on your investment?

Sherpa Executive Coaching has been doing a survey on executive coaching for five years now and one relevant finding from their 2010 survey was that “87% of HR professionals and coaching clients see the value of executive coaching as ‘somewhat high’ or ‘very high’.”

I am looking forward to working with you.
