Our Approach to Consulting and Coaching

Our approach to coaching and consulting incorporates the following steps:

  1. Interview with the "client."
  2. Situational assessment to understand the bigger context and perspectives surrounding the issues.
  3. Meet with the client and potentially other stakeholders to develop a common understanding based on all the information that has been collected.
  4. Make recommendations on how to proceed and outline the role that we can play to support positive outcomes.
  5. Discuss options with the client and together make a decision on the next steps.
  6. Build a detailed plan for moving forward and provide it to the client for feedback.
  7. Deliver services.
  8. Collect feedback on both process and outcome effectiveness.
  9. Share feedback with the client and determine the next steps if required.
