6,9, or 12 month packages
Over 1,500 hours of coaching experience with government employees
"Our 1-to-1 coaching sessions have really helped me expand my perspective about certain situations and consider alternate motivations or reasons for others' actions. I have also become more aware of my communication deficiencies and improved my communication with other team members, customers, and leaders, which has improved my effectiveness." USACE coaching client
Team Building & Development
Building and maintaining collaborative, cooperative, high-performing teams is one of the most challenging obstacles leaders face. When internal team issues arise, many leaders are unsure how to improve the situation.
Our team building & development programs help teams and leaders get to the root of issues and learn how to work together more effectively to increase satisfaction and performance.
Experience with civilian/military teams
Programs, workshops, and classes in communication, conflict management, relationship building, emotional intelligence, holding people accountable, etc.
Well validated psychometric assessments can help leaders and potential leaders better identify "blind spots." We use a variety of validated assessments and help leaders and team members interpret the results to increase self-awareness, identify gaps, and create concrete growth goals.
