INDIVIDUAL AND GROUP COACHING

Doing Your Best Work

Whether for an individual or group, coaching is a great way to engage in a thought-provoking and creative process to reach professional potential.  When done correctly, the results are life-changing and impactful.  Here are some of the typical reasons for coaching:

  • Owners and managers are spending too much time on employee issues and conflicts

  • An upcoming career change

  • Something urgent, compelling or exciting is at stake (a challenge, stretch goal or opportunity)

  • A gap exists in knowledge, skills, confidence or resources

  • There are strong hard skills, but people skills are lacking

  • There is a desire to accelerate results

  • There is a lack of clarity with choices made

  • Success has started to become problematic

  • Work and life are out of balance, creating unwanted consequences

  • Core strengths need to be identified, along with how best to leverage them

  • People are talking, but no one is listening

As opposed to therapy, which answers the question of why, coaching provides a path towards a positive future.  
In our coaching meetings, you or your group will identify how you want to be and how you'll get there. Your coach is your accountability partner who creates awareness, facilitates planning and goal setting, and helps measure progress.  The coaching environment is a safe place for exploration, learning, and growth.

We have worked with The HR Manager on several coaching engagements and are very happy with their services.  The coach is knowledgeable, professional and accessible.  All of our communications have been positive, and our employees really enjoy working one-to-one with the coach provided.  We highly recommend  the HR Manager for any coaching needs.

In contract, the goal of training is to teach a particular or a group of skills and/or to increase knowledge.   There is typically a specific need identified, within a finite time frame with specific predetermined goals in mind.
