Coaching

 

Coaching is a future-focused partnership that enables people’s ability to accomplish what they need to. Through a collaborative process of discovery, goal setting and action, clients can experience an expanded horizon of possibility, reinvent who they are and how they show-up, increase their ability to produce extraordinary results, and transform an impossible future into reality.

 

Our professional coaches abide by the International Coaching Federation (ICF) Code of Ethics, and provide confidential customized programs aligned with your unique needs. A number of assessments and simulations are available to support your coaching.

 

Coaching clients have included CEOs and senior leaders, executive leadership teams, new and experienced managers, health care practitioners, independent business owners, and individuals looking to enhance their careers.

Transforming Abrasive Leaders

Far too often organizations ignore, reward or terminate technically savvy people whose dysfunctional abrasive behaviour wreaks havoc on co-workers.  This abrasiveness borders on harassment, increases attrition, can lead to litigation, and always takes a toll on organizational performance.

 

Deciding to ignore or take action can be a difficult decision that involves time, effort and money. These individuals may be providing great value by hitting revenue targets and meeting tough project deadlines.  On the other hand, they often leave a trail of disgruntled coworkers behind them; the good one's leave and the others disengage and stay!

 

We can help leaders see the damage and alter their approach to leadership.  This can result in career success for the leader, re-engagement for employees, and greater outcomes for your organization.

Career Transition & Outplacement Services

Termination, lay-off, reduction in force. Whatever it's called at your organization there is always clarity on the need for respect and to help impacted employee(s) get back on their feet as quickly as possible.

 

For the organization, our on-site support puts our representative ready to speak with the employee(s) directly after hearing the news. This discussion helps move their thinking to a possible future and describes the program being offered to them. We can also provide guidance on their ability to return home safely or the need for alternate arrangements.

For the employee(s), our career transition program provides one-on-one professional coaching to support an individual’s efforts to market their unique talents, abilities and qualifications to get the job they want. Coaching is always tailored to meet the specific needs of each individual. The same caliber of service is provided regardless of title or position in the organizational hierarchy.

 

Typical career transition discussion areas include:

  • Creating a job-search strategy based on individual needs and how effective job searches work today

  • Identifying what career choices will tap into strengths, skills, values and passion

  • Dealing successfully with career transition, any baggage that might exist, and tactics for successfully transitioning to the next opportunity

  • Harnessing social media and face-to-face networking to identify opportunities and get known by others

  • Feedback and guidance for a professional resume, cover letter and references

  • Tips, feedback and practice for interviewing to land the job

  • Negotiating salaries, vacation and other perks involved in job offers
