  • Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill, NC (1888PressRelease) December 15, 2010 - Overwhelming statistical data suggests that a large percentage of top-performing employees plan to jump ship when the economy recovers.

    Roving Coach International, a revolutionary Triangle-based startup that works within organizations to make career development coaching a benefit for employees below the executive level, has been providing solutions to this rising need since its inception, and has experienced a steady growth phase as a result. Recently, that growth was amplified by the company's addition of nine highly qualified, highly enthusiastic professional coaches.

    Colleen Slaughter, Alan Cohen, Janet Ladd, Moira Killoran, Jennifer Conaway, Michele Brant, Betsy Smith, Will Eill, and Sy Blaesser joined the ranks of Roving Coach International last month, bringing with them an impressive collective level of experience and accreditation in the field of career development coaching.
