There are always times when providing coaching in the workplace is beneficial. 

Every individual needs growth and development at different points in their lives. The important thing is to find the right coach/mentor to suit the needs of the individuals in your business.

Budgets always play a part, so if you need to provide group focused development sessions, make sure that the content can be customised by each individual so they can apply it to their circumstances and what they need. This is imperative to getting a good result and maximum 'bang for precious buck'. 

Every individual is unique so they need a unique solution. 

If you are budget sensitive - and let's face it, these days every dollar counts in so many ways - then don't feel like you can't provide development solutions for your employees. There are options to help you create solutions (like my Organisational Health & Wellness Planning Kit) that can take you through a more DIY process and show you how you can find free and/or low cost ways to help your team grow.
