New e-Book by Impact Achievement Group Provides Coaching Essentials for Better Business Results

SEATTLE/September 27, 2012 —Recent research has revealed that companies list “finding and keeping quality workers” as their biggest problem. Research also confirms that organizations with an integrated coaching process will gain a competitive edge in employee performance, leading to sustained successful business results.

Accordingly, Impact Achievement Group has released “Performance Coaching for Business Results: Common Traps and Opportunities,” an e-book detailing the coaching techniques and skill sets required to help managers transform employee intentions into engaged performance.

The e-book provides insight into the critical elements that make up an effective coaching process, including:

• Alignment of coaching styles to employee performance level
• The impact of each manager’s coaching style
• How to apply the DESC™ model to create high-impact
performance discussions and effectively handle difficult

“There may be no other skill set as paramount to manager or supervisor success as coaching skills,” said Lee Klepinger, president and chief executive officer of Impact Achievement Group. “Often, though, these emerging leaders are given no coaching training, which can set them up for failure. Our e-book and training solutions address that information gap with practical tools for coaching success.”
