Other Information
Other Information At every moment, people make choices. This is true in all aspects of life - at work, at play, at love, at anger, and in every other emotion, decision, and action whether conscious or not. Coaching provides individuals and organizations with the opportunity to increase their awareness of themselves, their choices, values, and beliefs. Coaching generates conscious accountability for the outcomes of each decision. This leads to creation of more effective strategies and actions on the journey to professional and personal goals. Really great coaching stretches a person to do more than complete a series of transactional steps to a finish line . . . really great coaching transforms and evolves the individual or the organization in a holistic manner.
