      Learn to Coach and Develop People
By developing and acquiring coaching skills and attitudes, you create environments
that nurture learning and development of your staff.

       Learn which strategies to use when people don't make their development a priority or  
       when they don't apply what they've learned to make needed changes on the job.

Learn to shape the environment to support incentives to learning.  Align the
      organization's values with coachng and development.

       Inspire Commitment and Forge a Trusting Relationship
When people don't believe you care about them, it is time to build trust and                        understanding to inspire a willingness to hear, as well as, know what matters to your            people.
Even the most committed people face barriers to their success.  Coaching strategies can address these barriers successfully.
"The great leaders are like the best conductors - they reach beyond the notes to reach the magic in the players."
Blaine Lee
Understanding your style and others' styles allows you the opportunity to shift your assumptions, perceptions and behavior and expand your strengths. 

The coaching strategy will use multiple models of behavioral styles, explore power bases (influence, authority and expertise) and clarify needs and values as they pertain to self and others. 

Coaching will help the client build skills for recognizing others' most preferred behavioral style and identify the other person's patterns under both favorable and stressful conditions.  This approach will help the client achieve a superior level of competency with interpersonal relationship skills.
Long term stress will produce outward signs of altered behavior, appearance and habits. The cost of stress in absences, liability, mistakes, quality of work and poor decision-making, physical, emotional and mental health can be measured in how it impacts performance.

When demands on employees exceeds their ability to cope, they are no longer thriving on pressure (short-term stress).  Energy levels are low.  In this state people dwell on problems, focus on their weaknesses and find it almost impossible to think clearly. 

There are clear benefits for the organization in taking steps to reduce employee levels of stress.  Coaching interventions will help to move towards solutions.

Coaching will assist the individual or group through a process of stress management developing the individual's ability to adapt and become resilient to pressure which will then lead to growth.instead of stress.

Coaching will provide a strategic framework for increasing awareness, responsibility and action.
