If you aren’t sure if coaching can help, look for these symptoms in your organization or your job:

  • Outdated business strategies and practices
  • Conflict among key stakeholders
  • Life is consumed by work
  • Lack of initiative and creativity in the organization
  • Focus on past performance (“the good ole’ days”) and consumed by negative headlines
  • Fear-driven decision-making
  • Resistance to leadership and company procedures
  • Uncooperative team members who hoard information and other resources

Why business and life coaching?
Every circumstance and relationship is a mirror that drives learning and awareness. In business, the influence of a leader’s character, expectations and behavior is the main determinant of company culture and long-term success. Beyond the workplace, a person’s life experience is determined by similar factors: beliefs, expectations and actions. In this work, there is an explicit connection between business problem-solving and personal growth.
