Individual Coaching:

Personal/Life Coaching will help you to explore your values, goals, and unique qualities and talents. You will take a look at your life as it is right now, identify the change(s) that you want to make, and re- design your life for a more fulfilling future. Unlike counseling, coaching is an area in which it is relatively easy to measure gains made. You have either reached your goals or you haven’t. Coaching is ‘results oriented". Your coach will offer you support, provide structure, feedback, and systems of accountability to motivate you to reach your goals. Your work together is time limited and organized around the pursuit of specific goals. Personal coaching can help with creating more balance in your life, time management, health, wellness and fitness goals.

Corporate Coaching:

While the idea of training to improve your business skills is not new, what experts realized was that there was no follow up. Busy executives need help to make the necessary changes in real time on their jobs,"says Douglas Hall, Karen Otazo and George Hollenbeck in "Behind Closed Doors: What really Happens in Executive Coaching" Organizational Dynamics (Winter, 1999) "Just knowing what’s wrong isn’t enough to make the changes. When coaches work well with executives, the results tell the story", they add.
The executive coaching Program is designed to help leaders achieve a level of excellence that is commensurate with the leading edge in their professions, industries and personal lives. Executives in such positions often do not have the opportunity to have open and productive dialogue with someone outside the organization to "strategically plan" how to manage their problems, projects, visions, and personal goals to fruition. "Unlike a management consultant, an executive coach does not come in and fix the problem for you and then leave. A coach partners with you to elicit how to resolve issues and achieve your goals. And they stay with you throughout the process" says Amy Watson, a spokesperson for the International Coach Federation.
An executive coach can help with time management, communication skills, conflict resolution, career guidance, and team building.
Coaching is done privately and confidentially on a group or individual basis either in person or via telephone. The work to be accomplished is determined by the participant and the coach. Our work is designed to grow leadership competency. Organizations report teams are more productive, managers report more job satisfaction and are more effective as a result of coaching.
