The Nature of Our Work

Client engagements vary widely, but could include any of the following:

  • Initial Interviews with management and/or key employees;
  • One to three days of coaching in a "retreat" setting;
  • Private one-on-one coaching for those in management;
  • Weekly, bi-weekly or monthly coaching sessions;
  • Management retreats or planning sessions;
  • Negotiations with conflicting parties.

As your coach, we bring your issues and concerns out into the open where they can be properly addressed. Much of what goes on within a company is ignored, hoping it will improve "someday" or "when we have the time or money to handle it". Typically, these are the very things that result in ineffectiveness.

The length and nature of a coaching engagement depends on the circumstances in your company and the intended outcome. Some projects require only 2 or 3 days of work, while others require attention over a period of a year or more. You can expect us to be responsible, diligent and professional in tailoring our approach to your specific requirements.

We work directly with the concerns of your company -- those that are current and the challenges of the future. Our coaching is designed to get you beyond the problems, patterns and blind spots of the past. It shifts your focus and actions to become consistent with your vision for the future of your company. With coaching, you are able to produce better results -- by drawing improved performance from your whole team!
