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.

With an increase in employee awareness, it's important to cultivate a workplace that celebrates diversity. Although companies provide on-line training and written policies, sometimes that's not enough. We work with your team to understand the challenges and create customized training programs that engage your team and coach them to examine their behaviors and to adopt new practices that support a respectful work environment.
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN COACHING AND TRAINING?
To answer this question, it is easiest to describe what each process is. The goal of coaching is to empower an individual or team so that they can explore possibilities, choose solutions, develop strategies, define action plans and learn and create lasting results for optimal performance. At the heart of coaching is self-discovery and self-learning.
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.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF COACHING?
