No matter the destination, let’s get there.
GOALS IDENTIFIED, GOALS ACHIEVED
Effective contributions to any organization, and to society as a whole, require a sense of purpose, an understanding of what motivates us and the ability to derive satisfaction from achieving objectives. Coaching can impart the kind of positive attitude and orientation necessary to be an optimal contributor.
GREATER SELF-RELIANCE & PRODUCTIVITY
According to the International Coaching Federation, 86% of companies that offer team coaching report recouping their investment or increased profitability. What’s more, 80% of individuals who receive coaching say they have greater self-confidence, and more than 70% report improved work performance, better relationships, and having an easier time communicating.
WorkLife career coaching helps to identify personal goals and objectives and align and connect them to the direction of the organization. If the objectives involve changing course or exploring new possibilities.
WorkLife career coaching facilitates the dialogue and helps to explore the answers to questions such as, “What are the possibilities, how open is the individual to risk and are these objectives consistent with what the individual has learned through self-exploration”?
We develop with the individual, a custom designed process which includes:
– Passion and interest exploration
– Development of a career action plan
– Strategies for self-management techniques
– Improved communication skills
– Articulation of value added competencies
– Upgraded job descriptions, resumes and experience
Individual Coaching work?
Coaching is done either in person, if location permits, or over the phone on a weekly or bimonthly basis depending on personal needs and time commitment. Each session usually lasts 30 minutes to one hour, and again, is based on the designed partnership.
