Business coaching can be compared in some cases to having a human resources team behind you.  Through coaching you get training, tools, and systems designed to move you and your team forward and to improve your personal effectiveness in a business setting.

There are  many different aspects to business coaching.  It often involves support in creating strategies to deal effectively with a variety of issues including clear communication, productivity, hiring and managing a team. It also focuses on accountability once an action plan has been put into place. Business coaching is also about developing leadership at all levels from the top down.

Many organizations expect their senior leaders and middle managers to coach their team members toward higher levels of performance, increased job satisfaction, personal growth, and career development.  Business coaching teaches these skills to managers.

Executive coaching

Executive coaching involves working toward specific professional goals. These include career transition, interpersonal and professional communication, performance management, organizational effectiveness, managing career and personal changes, developing executive presence, enhancing strategic thinking, dealing effectively with conflict, and building an effective team within an organization.

Career coaching

Career coaching focuses on work and career or issues around careers. It’s very focused with a specific outcome in mind, not to be confused with life coaching, which concentrates on personal development.

Personality and Behavioural Assessments

DiSC® is a personal assessment tool used to improve work productivity, teamwork, and communication. DiSC is non-judgmental and helps people discuss their behavioral differences.

  • Increase your self knowledge: how you respond to conflict, what motivates you, what causes you stress, and how you solve problems
  • Learn how to adapt your own style to get along better with others
  • Foster constructive and creative group interactions
  • Facilitate better teamwork and minimize team conflict
  • Develop stronger sales skills by identifying and responding to customer styles
  • Manage more effectively by understanding the dispositions and priorities of employees and team members
