"If you want to go quickly go alone; if you want to go far go together." - African proverb
Unlock Your Potential.
Partner with one of our International Coach Federation (ICF) Certified Coaches
We all have goals we are striving towards, challenges we’re trying to manage, ideas in our head that need to have clarity, and at times feeling bogged down. Partnering with one of our highly trained professional ICF-certified coaches can support you with meaningful impact while unlocking your potential to help you thrive and inspire personally and professionally.
What is professional coaching?
International Coach Federation defines coaching as partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential, which is particularly important in today’s uncertain and complex environment. Coaches honor the client as the expert in his or her life and work and believe every client is creative, resourceful, and whole. Standing on this foundation, the coach’s responsibility is to:
Discover, clarify, and align with what the client wants to achieve
Encourage client self-discovery
Elicit client-generated solutions and strategies
Hold the client responsible and accountable
This process helps clients dramatically improve their outlook on work and life while improving their leadership skills and unlocking their potential.
Why does coaching matter?
An internal report of the Personnel Management Association showed that when training is combined with coaching, individuals increase their productivity by an average of 86% compared to 22% with training alone. According to a Gallup study (2015), 68% of American workers are disengaged. Glassdoor (2015) estimates that the cost is between $450 billion to $550 billion. How much is your company losing? We help to develop and maintain productive practices and incorporate personal meaning to bring fulfillment to each member of your team.
Personal meaning at work is correlated to competence, commitment, and contribution
Employee competence, commitment, and contributions build customer loyalty
Customer loyalty leads to financial gains for a company (Ulrich and Ulrich 2010)
