November 12, 2020 – Columbus, OH-headquartered Career Partners International (CPI) has launched PowerAmp Coaching, a professional development coaching program delivered by trained coaches with scientifically created artificial intelligence. This combination of professional coaching amplified by technology gives organizations the power to provide coaching at a fraction of traditional costs while minimizing risk.
CPI has launched the program in conjunction with LeaderAmp, founded by Matt Barney, organizational psychologist. In Dr. Barney’s previous work as the head of learning and development in major organizations around the globe he identified three key obstacles to successful coaching engagements. First was the inability to view and measure progress in real time. Second was the difficulty in predetermining which participants would succeed in coaching. Third was the limitation of coaching to those only at the highest levels of major corporations.
PowerAmp Coaching combines the expertise of proven coaches with the tracking and guidance of custom built and validated AI. This solution starts by identifying those in the organization who will most benefit from coaching then identifies areas for improvement based on proprietary, peer reviewed and validated assessments. With these tools, organizations and coaches can see which participants are on track and which need more support. By partnering with AI and utilizing consolidated project management tools, coaches provide greater levels of support to more participants, opening the possibility of coaching to more employees.
“In my nearly 30 years of human resources and learning and development I have not seen a coaching program so rooted in sound science,” said Bill Kellner, CEO of Career Partners International. “Coupling CPI’s coaching capabilities with LeaderAmp’s scientific approach and participant guidance brings previously unheard-of possibilities to the world of professional development.”
With more than 300 locations, Career Partners International is a provider of outplacement, career management, executive coaching and leadership development services. The organization was established in 1987.

The CPI website was revamped with a new segment of free materials for workers who have been laid off due to COVID-19 and have no professional assistance. These resources are to help guide the unemployed through stress management, developing a resume, preparing for interviews and more, preparing them to re-enter the workforce as soon as possible.
