Coaching with us always starts with an initial conversation about what you hope to accomplish through individual coaching. Note that coaches often use personality and other assessments as we believe that they are essential to assess your performance now so we can build on your areas of strength, as well as identify areas to seek additional skills as an individual, as a team member, and as an organization. The assessments allow us to create a baseline that we can use to gauge our progress together. We use a wide range of personality, leadership and career assessments to fit the needs of the individual as well as the organization.
