WHY Coaching? “Coaching is not therapy. It’s product development, with you as the product.”—Fast Company magazine. Business experts often cite coaching as an effective way of enabling professionals, by making sure they embrace their jobs and maximize performance. By coaching, I don’t mean those all-hands-on-deck motivational sessions where a celebrity or high-powered speaker (like me!) delivers a keynote address aimed at improving solidarity or general productivity. Those definitely have their place, but count as coaching only in the most general sense. Coaching isn’t the same as an annual evaluation, either, though some coaching may take place during the evaluation. It isn’t mentoring, because that usually doesn’t involve a manager. Nor is training, another essential, the same as coaching. True coaching involves one-on-one, informal face-time between a leader and his or her follower, in which both parties discuss what the professional needs to do, learn, or become in order to boost his or her performance. Coaching is rarely a one-time thing, or a merely annual event like an evaluation. The leader has the responsibility of checking in with each follower on a regular basis, to see if they need more attention, using the opportunity to improve not just the individual, but the communication process as well. Here are just a few reasons why coaching can help professionals boost their productivity: It’s compassionate. If nothing else, coaching proves that the COACH cares about the professional, their well-being, and their abilities. Sure, it’s all about making them work better in the context of their profession, but it can improve their lives overall if undertaken properly. Warning: without some level of emotional investiture by the coach and the professional, it rings hollow. Coaching addresses sensitive issues in a safe place. The coach and professional talk things over in a private space, where the professional can discuss their issues as well as the coach. No one but those involved knows what they discussed. It takes place during a scheduled round of interviews when the professional receives individual coaching, and the coach actively listens. Coaching improves motivation and job satisfaction, resulting in employee engagement and ownership of their jobs. The best coaching inspires and boosts confidence, because it concerns not just where the professional is off-track, but also what they are doing right. Good coaching helps the professional discover and manage strengths and limitations. This leads to maximize strengths and manage limitations (if worthwhile), while also overcoming obstacles and challenges. It also sets goals or benchmarks for the professional to strive for, and teaches them to stay on task, helping them improve their time management and fostering problem-solving skills. It provides a deeper level of perspective and personal awareness to the professional moving forward. It helps them improve communication skills, at least between the professional and the coach, and ideally between them and any other team members. Among other things, this promotes more effective teams with stronger bonds built on meaningful connections. All these factors can increase personal performance if the professional takes them to heart and the coach follows up regularly. The latter point is where coaching often fails in the corporate sector (where a manager assumes the coach’s role)… if it’s tried at all. But how often is coaching actually practiced in the workplace? Think about it: how often have you experienced coaching? I know people who never have. In the hustle to produce, and the long hours that prevailed after the tech bubble popped and the Great Recession overwhelmed us, it fell out of favor, possibly because managers felt they didn’t have the time or resources to do it properly. Later, Millennials moving into managerial and executive positions failed to continue the practice simply because they didn’t know or think about it. I fear coaching as a corporate practice may be on its last legs due to the lingering COVID-19 pandemic, during which face-to-face meetings have been avoided like, well, the plague. I believe it’s time for the professionals to take their professional development into their own hands by engaging a dedicated coach in a one-on-one setting (and not rely / expect the employer to your growth). Good luck!

The testimonials such as these...

“The coaching really validates and put in black and white these employees’ strengths and areas for improvement. It’s kind of freaky how much information can be gathered on someone. This is a valuable tool all companies can benefit from. It’s that powerful.” ~ Wade Johnson, President and CEO | Pen Bay Healthcare Medical Center in Rockport, Maine.

“Because a lot of our team is young, we are constantly looking at new ways to incentivize them. We have quickly realized it’s not money that motivates our employees; it’s being recognized and connected as part of a successful, driven team and achieving something together.” ~ Caitlin Fitzgerald, Director of Sales | TrackMaven

“I think the climate was right for trying something like this in our selection process. The assessments were just one of the spokes on the wheel that helped limit turnover.” ~ Jeff Huffman, Executive Director of HR and training for A Wireless.

What inspired you to start your own business?

“My clients, kind of call me the ‘turnover doctor’. It really was a joy to watch the enlightenment (grow) within the ranks of the client business as time moves forward.” ~ Surya Ganduri / Founder, CEO – eMBC, Inc.

Why should our clients choose you?

First of all, everyone needs some coaching and training.

Of course, you have to find someone that you can trust… someone that really wants to see you succeed. I can tell you that is my main goal. Nothing makes me happier than getting emails or phone calls from those that I have helped. I love success stories. I truly value hard work, honesty, and lifting up those around me.
However, I will not work with just anybody.
I say this because I have tried to help too many people that didn’t want to listen or were just wasting my time. Some of the attributes of the people I want to work with are:
• Serious about improving their performance.
• Eager to learn and willing to listen.
• Have high goals, i.e. won’t settle for mediocrity
• Wants to be highly successful.
• Won’t quit.
• Patient. After all, Rome wasn’t built in a day, neither will your business!
• Hard worker who doesn’t expect others to do their work for them!
• Commitment to change behavior and attitude
As you can see, I will not exclude people in financial doldrums. Some of the most successful that I’ve worked with have been in debt but, motivated enough to get out of debt when I started working with them. They were, however, people who were willing to work hard, learn the ropes, and wouldn’t settle.
I’m here to help you,
and I can honestly say that I truly wish for your success. I want to teach people the methods that I use to create success in my life every single day. If you are ready for success, you have come to the right place!
Contact me if you’re interested in working with me directly and start improving your results.

Your success starts with you so make it happen!
