Coaching & Strategy Services

Achieve your goals with focused, professional advice
As your coach, we will:

  • Assist you to develop a game plan;
  • Provide you with the tools, support and structure to your goals

We coach individuals who are beginning careers, ending careers, changing careers and enhancing careers, helping each individual identify and accomplish their goals.

We’ve been honoured to assist businesses and senior executives who’ve faced troubling situations.

We help individuals reenter the job market by leveraging their strengths, speaking to their weaknesses and recognizing if a particular company is right for them.

Team Building: Unify and move forward

If you want to kick-start or enhance the level of “team” in your organization, we can provide you a customized team-building session that:

  • Increases team skills;
  • Addresses interdepartmental team conflict;
  • Helps a team self-assess their strengths and weaknesses;
  • Develops team motivation and individual team player.

We custom-tailor team sessions to a team or organization’s specific needs.

We can provide your team and team members’ fun, interactive, effective training on communication, conflict resolution and/or group decision-making skills. These skills and strategies might include: dealing with toxic energy, getting rapport, taking criticism without defensiveness and two-way problem resolving.

While differences in thinking and working style make for healthy organizations, they also create frustration and conflict. Often, when individuals request team-building training, they’re hoping that members of the team will take assessment inventories giving every team member an improved ability in understanding other team members’ thinking, working-style and decision making differences and styles.

Effective team-building sessions often focus on who and what the team is and where the team is going. Participants work in groups to discuss and come to agreement on issues such as:

  • What are we doing well? What are our strengths and accomplishments?
  • In what areas do we need to improve or focus our efforts?
  • What does the team expect form our leader? What does our leader expect from the team?

What are each of our sections of the organization “pie” and what do each of our “slices” wish the other slices understood?

We provide teams with challenging and fun physical and/or mental activities and simulations that both test a team’s skills and allow a team to develop new and improved methods for interacting and resolving conflicts. One of our favorites is “toxic popcorn” which is a unique group challenge that has had success with several thousand groups.

Performance appraisal assistance

Does your company need a performance appraisal system that’s easy to use and really works? We create them.

Do you need us to objectively review already created performance reviews? We can reword what you want to say to improve its presentation and avoid problems in touchy situations.

Do you need someone else to deliver a tricky performance appraisal? We can do this – or be the “second seat” facilitator to help you get through to your employee what you want him/her to hear.
