What can COACHING do for you?

Coaches help people identify the gaps between who they are and who they want to be professionally AND personally!


A coach brings out the best in each person they work with through a professional relationship focused on results. There are so many choices in coaching available, Winner Partners offers targeted coaching services in addition to retained search, candidate assessment, and on-boarding.

BENEFITS of working with a coach

Unlocking and unleashing a person’s strengths gives them a unique power and edge–when a person understands themselves better, they will be better able to understand others and navigate even the most challenging situations with greater poise and ease. By focusing on a person’s strengths in our coaching relationships, we are able to discover hidden talent, motivation, and challenges that will benefit them professionally.

When coaching is offered in organization and leadership settings, it serves as a tool for developing people.

The benefits of coaching are many, here’s a few to think about:

  • 80% of people who receive coaching report increased self-confidence,
  • 70% benefit from improved work performance, relationships, and more effective communication skills,
  • 86% of companies report that they recouped their investment on coaching and more  (source: ICF 2009)


“There is no more effective way to empower people than to see each person in terms of his or her strengths.”

-DON CLIFTON, Father of Strengths Psychology and Inventor of CliftonStrengths



The benefits of coaching are as wide-ranging as the individuals involved. Our clients report that their experience of coaching positively impacted their careers as well as their lives by helping them to establish and take action towards achieving goals, as well as to become more self-reliant, self-assured, and agile in the workplace.
