Working with the Founder, Jessi LaCosta, ICF ACC, CCE-BCC
Whatever the goal is, I challenge my clients (and myself) to strategically, compassionately, and authentically tap into their highest potential, break free from deepest barriers, and move beyond what they thought was a stopping point.
I have been coaching since 2004 and have clocked 3000+ hours coaching people at all levels of their careers. I have been told I have a unique ability to help others solve issues and find new directions in a short amount of time.

When you engage a coach – you are working with a trusted source who is willing to observe, reflect, and work WITH you to strengthen strategies for growth while facing challenges so you achieve your best potential. It is about moving your visions from thoughts into actions that drive results. It’s about winning what you want – about developing a road map so that you are on the right path.
A leadership or executive coach is a qualified professional who works with individuals (usually executives, as well as managers who are often considered high potentials) to help them gain self-awareness, clarify goals, unlock their potential, and act as a sounding board. They ask powerful questions, challenge assumptions, help provide clarity, and occasionally advice.

** The ROI of executive coaching:
- A Fortune 500 company wanted to study the ROI of Executive Coaching. They found that 77% of respondents indicated that coaching had a significant impact on at least one of nine business measures.
In addition, they uncovered that overall productivity and employee satisfaction were the most positively impacted areas (which in turn has an impact on customer satisfaction, employee engagement, quality, annualized financial results, and more). In all, their study concluded that Executive Coaching produced a 788% ROI.
The study noted that excluding the benefits from employee retention, a 529% ROI was produced. (Executive Briefing: Case Study on the ROI of Executive Coaching, Merrill C. Anderson, Ph.D., MetrixGlobal, LLC)More can be found at our coaching page.
