This article reports on our efforts to develop a meaningful methodology for the study of return on investment broadly construed, of executive coaching
Cambria was founded in 1985 by a small group of senior consultants with advanced degrees in economics, business administration, and behavioral science. The beginnings of our consulting practice were inspired by the work of Harvard professor David C. McClelland, originator of job competency assessment technology. Cambria has helped develop and implement competency-based human resource management processes, including selection systems, training, organizational assessment, and career development for Fortune 500 companies, government agencies, and nonprofit organizations. Our business-centered approach results in more effective talent development through rapid implementation of customized programs and solutions that support strategy execution. With a worldwide network of consultants and partners, Cambria works to accelerate the development of individuals and teams — from executives to front-line employees — helping them reach higher levels of performance through coaching, executive assessment, competency modeling, role profiling, succession planning, leadership programs, leadership team effectiveness, and online talent systems.
