The Essentials of Coaching Institute

The Essentials of Coaching Institute is synthesis of what I consider the best from many models and is a culmination of my own coaching career, starting in the early 90’s.  It has involved years of study and experience where I have identified what is deeply compelling for me in coaching others.  This program has resulted in many excellent Holistic Life Coaches.

Purpose: The Essentials of Coaching Institute: Coaching Skills for Managers. To introduce managers to a time-tested approach to coaching others for maximum results.  Relationships are greatly enhanced in the context of this method of a coaching system. People reach new levels of their potential and perform at their best on a daily basis.

Effective Parenting Workshop

Being a parent is a wonderful opportunity and blessing. But it can also be full of heartaches and tears of frustration. Most parents have never learned how to parent so they follow their parent's example. This approach is not always skillful - and being a good parent does take skills. You can learn parenting skills that work - and I can teach and coach you how to do them.

When You Have Responsibility but No Authority

In today's working culture, many employees are faced with the discouraging fact that they are given responsibility -- but no authority. In this workshop, you will discover more understanding of yourself and others, learn effective methods of communication and persuasion to build relationships and, at the same time, achieve desired results -- a both/and model rather than an either/or.

From Vision to Reality

Most groups that call themselves "teams" are really just work groups. This workshop is a visionary approach to creating a self-directed team that is inspired in its vision, can share that vision with others, and can ensure that all values, goals, and action steps are in alignment with not only the team's vision but the organization's vision as well.

This workshop teaches those in leadership, managerial or supervisory roles how to coach their people to enable them to achieve their personal and professional goals as well as those of their organization.

You Make a Difference

Communicating -- understanding and being understood -- is one of the biggest challenges in today's busy and often impersonal world and it is the key to success in both business and personal life. Skills learned include effective listening, non-threatening confrontation, creative problem solving, and win-win negotiation and conflict resolution.

Keep Them Coming Back

96% of unhappy customers will say nothing to you but will simply take their business elsewhere, telling 11 to 26 other people about their dissatisfaction and only 2 to 5 about their satisfaction. Can you afford this silent loss? In this new millennium, meeting customers' expectation is not enough: you must exceed their expectations to even get their attention -- to set yourself apart. Learn a refreshing and powerful system for customer service to attract -- and retain -- your customers.

Discover and Develop Team Synergy

Most teams go through a process of "storming"; members argue or withdraw, jockey for influence and power. Although some of this process is inevitable, this seminar will show a positive alternative to identify your team's innovative strengths and discover how to synergistically implement new ideas. Determine effective ways to balance, integrate, and capitalize on the different strengths of each member of a team to achieve a common purpose.

Bring out the Best in People

Facilitation is an essential skill in today's corporate culture. As the complexities of business increase and the need for change accelerates, every organization must have more people capable of leading through facilitation. This program is designed to build a powerful, internal resource for your organization to gain desired results easily and effectively -- people who are dynamic facilitators of people and processes.

You will discover more effective ways to communicate, understand and relate to people with whom you work and live.
