“’Even modest improvements can justify hiring a coach,’ says Jerome Abarbanel, Vice President of Executive Resources for Citibank: ‘An investment of $30,000 or so in an executive who has responsibility for tens of millions of dollars is a rounding error. Coaching is a success if one subordinate who was too intimidated to speak before comes up with a good idea.’

“Metropolitan Life Financial Services offered an intensive coaching program to part of its retail sales force. They found that productivity among those salespeople coached increased by an average of 35%, while 50% identified new markets to develop. Perhaps most important, Metropolitan has retained all of the salespeople who had the coaching—a big deal, since industry statistics show that each representative who leaves a company with three years’ experience cost $140,000 to replace. In all, the coaching program which cost about $620,000, delivered $3.2 million in measurable gains: A 5.16 ROI.”
