The Coaching Clinic® is a two-day workshop for managers and leaders, which assists them in the strategic skill of coaching. It is a powerful yet pragmatic course that leverages case histories applicable to your business so managers can learn, practice and master Coaching skills.

Coaching is the most effective technology for bringing about the desire and will within individuals to make the shifts required to reach higher levels of contribution, accountability and performance. It is the skill of making people more aware of their own behavior so that they can function more effectively. And, since coaching allows employees to reach their own conclusions and to commit to action plans they create it provides truly sustainable motivation and results. Using this technology, our vision is to allow individuals to be a valued contributor to their organization, and in return feel fully developed and utilized by the organization.
