MORE ABOUT COACHING
Face-to-Face, Telephone, and Internet-Based Coaching
Specializing in life and executive coaching face-to-face, by telephone, or through Internet voice or video conferencing, providing cost-effective solutions, anywhere, anytime. Offering great value to leaders in a busy world of business.
I work with individuals, executives and managers in all kinds of organizations to help people and teams to build better organizations, and to feel more fulfilled in their roles by maintaining work-life balance.
Individuals are interested in coaching for personal development and fulfillment – becoming the best that they can be.
Companies are interested in coaching because they believe that it can lead to a good return-on-investment in terms of employee engagement and retention – factors that can lead to increased profitability.
Executive coaching involves developing confidential and trusting relationships that can lead to conversations that are focused on identifying issues that need your attention.
One goal is to find solutions that can lead to personal growth and development and positive change in the workplace.
Professional coaches have formal training in building trusting relationships and catalyzing change by asking powerful questions.
I leverage my coaching experience with my business experience as a manager and a leader to add value to our executive coaching relationship – developing your business acumen. Sometimes
I act as your coach, or your mentor, or your business consultant. I work hard to help you to gain momentum and to move forward in life and work
Life coaching is focused on helping you to recognize, understand and move through issues and feelings of “being stuck” in life and work. As your life coach I will work with you to find ways to help you experience positive change and to move forward in life or work on small or grand scales.
Life coaches focus on positive psychology and are experienced at setting aside their value systems and ego-driven opinions, in support of instilling greater self-awareness, confidence, and transformation in you.
As your life coach I will help you to move from feelings of being “stuck” toward a position of conscious choice. The focus will always be on your needs, wants, goals, and vision for a better future.
We will work together to find ways that will free you to find your own direction, solve your problems, and move forward in life.
Life coaching works!
As your life coach I will rely on a three-stage coaching model that will include building awareness, mutual inquiry, and a call-to-action.
In the building awareness stage the foundation for a trusting relationship will be developed.
The inquiring stage is founded on unconditional positive regard, deep listening, reflective feedback, and appreciative inquiry. This is where we identify and fully understand the issues that are holding you back.
In the call-to-action stage I will seek a commitment from you to move forward toward a resolution of dilemmas that you are encountering in your life and work.
Business Coaching & Organization Development
Business coaching and organization development involves discovering ways to improve your business administration practices.
We work with you to develop your business acumen. We work together to identify ways to make your organization more efficient and effective. This usually involves leadership development.
Business coaching addresses the way that you approach business problems and engage with supervisors, co-workers and frontline workers within the context of the organizational setting.
We work together to refine your approach to organization development, strategic management, change management, business excellence, talent selection, talent management, succession planning, employee engagement business process management, and more.
You will benefit from our business experience from the front-line to the boardroom in large, small, and private organizations.
Business coaching is focused on your developing your leadership and business acumen. It’s all about improving the bottom line … however you define it
We work with teams to help them to become more efficient and effective in their day-to-day activities in the workplace.
I am a certified executive coach facilitator, and team coach with certifications in individual and team assessment systems that can be used to help take your teams from “good-to-great.”
Although teams are recognized as engines of the progress in organizations, limited attention is commonly directed towards their development and success.
Understanding the nature of team development and team dysfunction can be a starting point for many leaders to develop higher levels of team engagement that will lead to tangible and intangible benefits to the organization.
Team behaviour is related to team leader fit, team support from the organization, and to team dynamics.
Team dynamics include having a sense of common purpose, trust in each other, having a collective skill set, operating effectively, and executing successfully.
Understanding that teams typically evolve through stages of team development can provide a framework for understanding your team dynamics, team performance, and team growth. A
s your team coach I rely on evidence-based models for team development that focus on developing competencies that work for a high-performing work team. Team building works!
I work with individuals and organizations to help build their leadership capacity through coaching and customized programs that leverage assessments.
Frameworks for learning can be built around the 70-20-10 learning concept, and the LEADS model.
The 70-20-10 learning concept honours the ideas that we learn best through action, next through interaction with others, and finally through “book” learning.
This is just a simple framework for discussion to build out a more complex program with your input. T
he LEADS leadership development model promotes the idea that leadership can be developed by building self awareness, engaging with others, developing business acumen, establishing networks and by facilitating organizational change.
I am familiar with leadership theory and practice with accreditation in competency-based “360” assessment systems.
Elements that we will consider for a personalized or team-based leadership development program are presented in the following table.
The leadership program components include modules that focus on Leading Self, Engaging Others, Achieving Results, Developing Collaborations, and System Transformation.
Our leadership development focus will be on building self-awareness, building emotional in intelligence, building leadership competence, building team-awareness, and understanding the role of innovation and organizational change.
You will learn how to be a Leader-Coach, and too demonstrate your leadership through the lens of your Individual Leadership Development Plan.
Individual and team assessments can be very useful in building awareness about many things including personal development, personality type, emotional intelligence, leadership and team competency. I am accredited in many of these systems and incorporate them into my coaching and leadership development programs.

Leadership & Management
Bringing leadership and management experience to the coaching conversation can be valuable. I have over 25 years of international experience as both an executive and manager in the world of business from the front-line to the boardroom in large, small, private, and entrepreneurial start-up companies.
