Does coaching offer clients a justifiable ROI? Read on for the high-points of a study of 100 executive coaching clients by Manchester Inc., a supplier of customized executive coaching programs.

The majority of executives surveyed were from Fortune 1000 companies, and 50% held titles of chief executive officer; chief financial officer; chief information officer; division president; vice president; general manager; partner; principal; or practice leader. One-third earned $200,000 or more per year, and 57 percent were aged 40 to 49.

Bottom line – clients reported that executive coaching delivered an average ROI factor of 5.7 times the coaching investment – or a return of more than $100,000.
