As an employer, you know that your business cannot function without your employees. But can you imagine just how well your business would function if each and every one of your employees were functioning at their highest capacity? If they were motivated and engaged, generating new ideas and eager to try new things? If they were excellent communicators with the skills to constructively handle conflict on their own? Our services provide training and coaching that result in that and more.At Work Model

Based on Dr. Helen Richardson’s innovative model (at right), work is defined as:

  • Meaning and Purpose
  • Relationship
  • Personal and Professional
  • Life Energy

Through coaching and training, participants recognize that Work is A Relationship that gives or takes energy. This new perspective creates the space for increased self awareness, and skill development.  Participants are more willing to  master new skills that enable them to maximize their professional success, personal satisfaction and more effectively achieve organizational goals.

Individual and Group Career Coaching

This service focuses on helping individuals and small groups identify their skills, talents, and interests, as well as any roadblocks to achieving satisfaction and career success. We propose a perspective about work that is deeply empowering: work is a relationship. Just like any other relationship, work requires us to know ourselves well, to be proactive, to be excellent communicators, to have empathy, to take responsibility for our choices, to hold ourselves accountable, and to ultimately decide what is healthy and right for our own lives.
This service helps develop this new mindset and translate it into concrete actions that improve your work/life balance and re-establish priorities for education and training in times of transition or change. Individual and Group Career Coaching can help you:

  • Understand your unique personality, talents, and interests
  • Analyze work from the perspective of individual beliefs and values
  • Recognize situations that take away or give positive energy
  • Reframe stressful situations and effectively resolve conflicts
  • Position yourself for meaningful, fulfilling work
