SERVICES

 

45-60 Minute Coaching Sessions

Effective upskilling is rarely a one-size-fits-all proposition. Coaching customizes professional and personal development, integrates organizational objectives, honors individuality, and provides pivotal objective feedback from an external authority.

  • One-on-one

  • Small group (2-4 participants)

  • 4 session package
     

Intensive Team Training

Intensive team training is an efficient way to upskill an entire department or office in a single setting.

  • ½ day intensive team training

  • Full day intensive team training

Consulting Assessment

Sometimes there are underlying communication problems that require effort beyond coaching or training. Occasionally, you might require an outside expert to collect data, analyze it, and offer recommendations. As an organizational communication researcher trained at one of the nation’s top doctoral programs, my unique skill set is at your disposal.
