Here’s How Pamela’s Clients Benefit from Ongoing Coaching
1. Starting Strong in a New Job:
The first 30 days in a new position are critical. You only have one opportunity to make a first impression. You must establish rapport with key coworkers and company leaders, build a positive reputation, set goals, and deliver results.
2. Accelerating Success:
Coaching empowers clients to move forward in their careers by supporting them in taking on new projects, maximizing performance, achieving lopment goals, improving relationships, building leadership skills, and identifying and seizing opportunities to advance.
3. Navigating Change:
Change is a constant in today’s business world. Pamela helps clients anticipate external change (company reorganization, new manager, company strategy adjustment, etc.) and position themselves to make the most of it.
Pamela also helps clients clarify when they must make their own changes (move internally, leave the company, explore new directions, reduce stress, change limiting behaviors) and supports them through their transformations.
