Coaching and Mentoring
Support, guidance, and encouragement
Professional coaching helps people discover brand new ways to reach their professional and personal goals. Coaching is focused on outcomes that you design and your coach helps you achieve. It is a partnership that inspires people to discover greater possibilities and opportunities. Sidney is an ICF Professional Coach (PCC), a Certified Mentor Coach, and is also certified in five coaching models: NeuroLeadership Coaching, Presence-Based Coaching, Gallup Strengths®, Intercultural Development (IDI) and MBTI® Step III™.
Our first session may begin by exploring why you or your team are interested in coaching. You may already be clear on your starting place, like team development, managing conflict, improved communication, or understaning diversity and inclusion. In any of these situations, we could begin with one our assessment packages below.
