Business Coaching for Success
The Changing Times for Business Coaching


Began as: Taking in a program already developed and step-by-step presenting this. (usually2- 3 days event) Remembered learning and internal change – minimal change

Next: Going into an organization, asking questions at the top of the organization and creating a program based on their perceived needs – little effective change

Next: Meeting with top people of an organization asking questions around issues, asking questions of individuals to be involved in the training, and developing a specific program to last for a longer time frame – more effective change


Going into an organization, doing a needs analysis with  the top of an organization, then an individual needs analysis with those who are to partake in the training. This determines the gaps that need to be closed. The program is designed loosely, as things will come up to be addressed which allows for flexibilty making the program about them and not about the binder. Effective change

Successful Bsiness Coaching needs to begin with goals in mind, that enhance and backup  the big picture. Doing an needs assessment keeps a coach centered on success.  These needs assessments provide an overall strategy to move forward, and are done on various levels depending on the size of an organization.

  • Where you feel you are                                                          Where the participants feel they are fitting in
  • Where you want to be                                                             How do they know they are valued
  • Understanding of vision and goals are understood                Do they understand the organization’s goals
  • Where everyone fits in                                                            How well do they know their teams
  • Contribution to bottom line                                                      Do they understand their contribution
  • Looking at the evnvironment for everyone                             Any suggestions for enviornment improvement


successSuccessful communicating, on any level, will be received much differently if it comes from the heart as well as the head. These are not separate and it takes whole body communicating to bring things to a higher result, and greater satisfaction for all levels.  That is why, putting in some parts of life coaching into the mix, here and there, pays big dividends.

Sample Testimonials:

“From the moment I met you Lynne, I knew you were someone different than the pack of consultants that I had known from my past life. You got it!! You understood that beneath the labels like leader or manager or welder, or whatever – the thing that we sometimes forget is that we are all people. You can teach all of the techniques in the world, but without a bit of empathy, without truly communicating on a human level, you will fall short.

I am so pleased you worked with this wonderful group. You taught them, you challenged them, and most of all you inspired them. They are all different than when they started this course, and best of all, you have taken a bunch of supervisors and molded them into a supervision team. Great Job!!” – Doug Howe, Bus.
