Custom consulting services to help you reach your personal or business goals including strategic planning, organizational development, and executive coaching.
Coaching is a resource for anyone with either formal or informal leadership responsibility, who wants to change how they work. Often this is called Executive Coaching but that implies you need to be an Executive to benefit. Anyone in the working world with goals who wants to make better progress in their life can benefit from Coaching. Frequently, the motivation for working with a coach is to fix something that is going wrong. You may be showing physical stress symptoms, are increasingly frustrated with others, having difficulty setting or achieving work goals, or simply not enjoying work the way you once did. These emotions and road blocks may be keeping you awake at night. The reality is you are just ready to grow and may need help in the next phase of your work life.
What is Work Success (aka Executive) Coach? Work Success Coaching consists of a series of meetings between a client and a coach where the goal is supporting the coachee in exploring issues and achieving objectives. At its core, Coaching is a support process that uses the expertise and perspective of a trained coach to help someone balance priorities, shoulder leadership responsibilities, and make good work and life decisions.
Successful people, especially organizational leaders, develop support systems and habits to keep them focused and strong so they reach the top of their next mountain. A Work Success Coach may be the support you need to tackle current challenges. The coach is outside your organizational structure, which gives you a sounding board but provides an alternative perspective. The coaching relationship is absolutely confidential. You get the freedom to vent, explore, and progress. Coaching can be a few sessions or can extend to longer engagements as part of a comprehensive organizational change plan.
No two organizations are the same. This is why MRC designs each strategic planning meeting to match your unique circumstances. Rather than a generic, cookie-cutter strategic plan that sits on the shelf, we help you craft an actionable strategic plan that will get your organization to its next goals. Most of our strategic planning sessions are one-day events, although half-day and weekend retreats are also options that may be the best approach for you.
If you have a strategic plan that sits on a shelf, you didn't hire Maze Runners.
