A study undertaken by Olivero, Bane, & Kopelman, published in "Public Personnel Management" Winter Edition, 1997, showed impressive results when comparing the effects of conventional managerial training alone vs. the same training followed by one-on-one executive coaching.

of leaders, employees, children, families and communities. The science of Mind-Kinetics®
