One-On-One Coaching

Sometimes the most effective approach to professional growth is through one-on-one work with a coach. We provide personalized executive coaching, helping leaders guide their organizations through challenging times to create success.

We also provide one-on-one coaching for individuals accused of harassment. This specialized process serves to assist the employee in understanding the behaviors which resulted in the accusation, and to develop new behaviors to minimize the possibility of future difficulties. This coaching generally consists of up to three meetings, and focuses on actions, not therapy.
