“Our struggling employee really enjoyed working with Gwynnae. He’s more focused and productive now!”
A coach is your partner in helping you realize your goals. Coaching for business clients entails working one-on-one with your employees to help them realize their highest potential.
If you have an employee who is not performing to expectations, I can help! Services include:
- Observational assessment of employee and employee’s work processes
- Hands-on coaching related to workflow and office space set up
- Strategies for organization
- Time management tips
- Identifying barriers to success
- Data management recommendations
- Development of organizational systems
- Training for maintenance of those systems
What is the difference between a consultant and a coach?
Here’s a helpful chart from the Support Center for Nonprofit Management that explains the differences:
|Even when one person is the main client contact, the consultant usually works with more than one person, often in a team, group, board, or department||Works on a one-to-one basis; may coach more than one person in an organization, individually|
|Structures projects for specific deliverable or result, which the consultant is primarily responsible for||Supports the client to achieve her or his own result or outcome|
|Usually problem-focused, i.e., identifies and tries to correct problems or weaknesses||Builds on the client's strengths|
|Regarded as the "expert" who will solve problems (the magic bullet)||Enables the client to solve problems or change things for the better|
|Consultant brings technical expertise to advise on solutions||Coach brings relationship expertise to support the client's solutions|
|If behavior change is needed, consultant generally does not get involved in it||A focus on individual and interpersonal dynamics supports behavior change|
|Gathers data and reports on what needs to be done||Facilitates growth|
|Time-limited; generally short-term and project-oriented results||Occurs over a period of time that generally involves renewable contracts; focused on long-term results|
|Provides information||Promotes self-discovery|
|Goals generally related to programs and funding||Values-based goal setting|
|Requires limited commitment from client to implement||Maximizes client's commitment to implement solutions|
