For team members who want to develop the skills to make joint decisions, to build trust, to manage conflict, and to communicate and collaborate effectively, People First Productivity Solutions offers small group business team coaching and our unique “Debinars” (highly interactive sessions led by Deb Calvert, as opposed to typical “broadcast” webinars).
Coaching isn’t the same as mentoring, managing, teaching or supporting. Credentialed business coaches follow a strict code of ethics and have been trained to help you find your own solutions and reach the goals you set for yourself and your team.
There’s no question that future leaders will need constant coaching. As the business environment becomes more complex, they will increasingly turn to coaches for help in understanding how to act.
The kind of coaches I am talking about will do more than influence behaviors; they will be an essential part of the leader’s learning process, providing knowledge, opinions, and judgment in critical areas.

Coaching for professional development is now the rule rather than the exception for successful executives, emerging leaders, and effective business teams.
A survey by Right Management Consultants found that 86% of companies used coaching to develop the skills of high potential leaders.
One reason for this surge in business team coaching is that it really works – A study conducted by Manchester, Inc. demonstrated that companies realized a return on coaching that was 5.7 times greater than what they invested.
Coaching isn’t for everyone. You’ll benefit from business coaching when your corporate team is ready for it and open to it. Take this 15-question self assessment to determine if business team coaching is a viable solution for you at this time.
