Our approach to Coaching and Mentoring
As per a recent Cultural Trends Report by OC Tanner, 79% of Gen Z employees desire a coach or mentor rather than a traditional boss.
Coaches work with individuals either one on one or in small groups to help them set and achieve their goals. Coaches help their clients by identifying the impediments to reaching goals and helping them find ways to overcome such barriers. Since they are experts in their coaching niche, they can provide encouragement, support, and assistance in a way that no one else can.
Most people need to achieve success in something or overcome an issue that is holding them back at leading a full and happy life. Coaches, having been through similar experiences, can help guide others to the path to the life they envision and encourage them while they are on the road. Coaches can help their clients avoid pitfalls or getting side tracked. They can inspire their clients by sharing their own experience and success.
Our Coaches and Mentors help you gain confidence and poise that will last for a lifetime. We guarantee 100% confidentiality to you. Here are the issues we can Coach/Mentor you on:
Most people need some help in communication, whether it’s writing an effective business report, telling someone that they love them, or delivering speeches or presentations effectively. From overcoming the fear of public speaking to creative writing, communications coaching offers a number of specialties in which coaches can be successful. Professionals will become more successful, and individuals with interpersonal communications challenges will have healthier, better personal relationships based on effective coaching!
For those in conflict, coaching can be a lifesaver. Many people don’t know what to do in a conflict. They feel unsure and frightened that they may lose something they have or not get something they think they deserve. People in conflict sometimes are unable to see the “big picture” because they may be blinded by emotions. A conflict management coach can help them sort through most of these issues.
People dreaming of starting their own businesses seek out entrepreneur coaches. These coaches guide entrepreneurs through the steps of creating a successful new business. Whether the clients are starting an online business from their dining room or planning to buy a franchise retail store, entrepreneur coaches can help them develop goals and objectives to become successful.
Everyone is challenged by an ethical dilemma from time to time. Whether you are working with a boss requesting actions you may not agree with or you are in relationships that are demanding one sided considerations – a system of beliefs of what is right and what is wrong – will guide you. An ethics coach helps clients define their ethics based on their personal spiritual beliefs and guides them through difficult ethical choices. Clients seek out an ethics coach for specific problems or to help them understand their personal values so that they can live a life of integrity.
One of the most challenging coaching niches, executive and leadership coaching involves working with the upper management of companies and corporations. These are individuals who understand the value of effective coaching. Executives seek out coaches because there is little time for self-reflection during their working day. A coach can help them identify their strengths and weaknesses in an efficient manner and provide constructive feedback. They can track their progress through the lens of the coach. Our primary goal is to motivate clients to capitalize on your strengths, to incorporate change, and to create the best team environment to reach the company’s goals as quickly as possible.
Today, people want to have it all – a fulfilling career, a nurturing family life, and leisure time filled with hobbies and friends. A life goals coach helps their clients look at the big picture of their lives and develop strategies to help them become fulfilled in various aspects of their lives. People from all walks of life can engage a life goals coach.
Many of us need to find ways to motivate ourselves, and business executives are hoping to learn positive ways to motivate their employees to be more productive. Certain situations create a lack of motivation in people. Someone may not be motivated to look for a job if they were fired from their last one. Employees may not have a positive attitude about work after some of their co-workers are laid off. A coach can certainly help in such situations.
Some people get stuck in their life and that’s all they know. They lose part of themselves having played their main role successfully e.g. being an entrepreneur, parent, professional etc. You may feel like there is something is missing in your life but can’t articulate what it is. A personal development coach helps people who become stuck leading full, multi-faceted lives. Clients come to a personal development coach when they feel like life is passing them by. Some may be having a mid-life crisis. Others no longer like their primary role anymore and wonder if they should leave their job or even their marriage. The coach helps them determine what they really want out of life and how to pursue it.
A huge segment of population is over its head in various kinds of debt. Young professionals may be overwhelmed with various loans. Some may need a financial plan for their retirement days. A personal finance coach helps people who don’t have the necessary skills develop strategies to rein in their spending and increase their savings to meet specific financial objectives. A client often comes to a personal finance coach in a crisis situation. Effective financial planning should start sooner the better!
Some people have trouble making and keeping deadlines. They put off doing the work until the last minute, causing themselves undue stress and anxiety. Procrastinators can benefit from coaching to help them kick the habit. They may be floundering in their position because they are constantly missing deadlines. Others may be generating work that is subpar because it has been performed hurriedly at the last minute. Business executives with procrastination issues need to address such an attitude at the earliest in their careers.
Building successful, healthy relationships both professionally and personally is important to many people. The problem is, many of us don’t have the skills to do so being brought up in an academic environment. A relationship coach can help clients learn the skills they need to build relationships that will be fruitful and lasting. People from all walks of life come to relationship coaches. A busy professional woman may be trying to figure out how to find a ‘suitable boy’. A salesperson wants to understand why he has trouble developing good relationships with his clients. Another client wants to have appropriate, yet productive, relationships with his/her team members.
Retirement can be a stressful time for some people, especially if they haven’t planned it. Finances may be an issue, or finding things to do to fill the time once dominated by a career. This is where retirement coaching can be helpful. Clients come to retirement coaches for a variety of reasons. They may need help reconnecting with their spouse. Others may need a financial plan. Others need to determine their priorities so that they can be fulfilled in life after work. Some may even decide they want to forge a new career. A Coach can help you plan your approach.
Sales executives are constantly under the gun to improve their performance. They are often in competition with not only with competing companies, but their own colleagues. They share a skill-set that is unique in business, which is why many of them will seek out a sales coach to help them excel at their career. Salespeople come to coaching wishing to hone particular skills, such as closing the sale or networking. Others want a critique of their pitch to determine how to make it more successful. Some are considering moving into management and want to make the move effectively.
Some people have trouble with their self-worth and value from an early age. Others find themselves suffering from self-esteem issues after being fired from a job or going through a divorce. A self esteem coach can help clients look at themselves from an objective point of view and in a positive light. People come to self-esteem coaches looking for help to feel more self-confident. They want action-based strategies to help them overcome the negativity that accompanies low self-esteem.
Many people experience too much stress in their lives. Although some positive stress is healthy for most people, too much negative stress can lead to emotion, mental, and chronic physical problems. Most people don’t know how to alleviate stress on their own and are sometimes overwhelmed by the emotions that go along with it.
Most people know that they need goals in their lives to fulfil their dreams and to keep them challenged. The problem is, most people have a difficult time reaching their goals for a variety of reasons. After several failures, they may give up setting goals. A success coach can help break the cycle.
Managers at all levels of business want to know how to build effective teams and manage collaboration within. Conflict and employees not working as a team costs heavily in the form of not just money but damages in terms of relationships, motivation, loss of creativity and opportunity to mention the least! Many managers do not have the skills to solve these issues. The results are high employee turnover and added costs of constantly having to hire and train new employees. Managers may hire a team-building coach to help them develop the ability to motivate their team. Others may need immediate help with a conflict between workers that is damaging productivity. Some may need help with hiring practices to make sure they hire the right fit for a current team.
Almost everybody goes through some sort of transitional in their lives. From one phase to another e.g. being a professional to being a manager, to changing careers, to adapting to fast changing technology, transition is common in the world of business. People go through transition personally as well, with losing a parent, having a child, or getting a divorce. A transitional coach can help people navigate their new lives before, during, and after a transition. Some need help dealing with the grief that is often part of the transition process. They may need practical help organizing a move. A transitional coach can help you plan for change.
