Coaching Services Balanced Coaching & Conflict Management offers a variety of coaching services, for individuals in both personal and professional capacities, in addition to group coaching and conflict coaching. Each of these are further explained below.  Career Coaching  Management and leadership skills are not innate to most folks. Being taught some of those skills in a short-term workshop and then told to go out and just do it, generally does not work. What does work is a plan that identifies and is structured around your strengths and the needs of the organization We will first help you to define your own set of principles for solid and constructive management and leadership. We will then work with you from coaching session to coaching session to test out your principles in safe and healthy ways, with on-going loops of testing, feedback, and further testing and refining. We have served successfully in executive and leadership positions and will draw on our own experiences to mentor you when it is appropriate to do so. With a combination of coaching and mentoring, you will be able to grow into the leader your people want and need and the kind of leader you want to be. Personal Coaching Services What would your life be like if you had an ally who believed that you are naturally creative, resourceful and whole, and who asked you powerful questions that helped you to unlock your full potential? That’s what Life or Personal Coaching by a trained, professional coach is all about. If you feel stuck in a job, a relationship or other situation that is going nowhere for you, we generally begin with questions that ask you to identify and consider other possible perspectives on your situation. We will work with you to find a perspective that is more satisfying and puts your actions in alignment with your values. We will also help you to develop a picture of what you want your life to look like a month from now, a year from now, or some other time frame you choose, and we will co-create with you a set of steps and action items that will help to make your hopes and dreams a reality for you. Conflict Management Coaching What is conflict coaching? Conflict coaching is a one-on-one process to develop the client's conflict understanding and to explore strategies for intervention. Having the skills to manage conflict can make the difference between success and failure in the workplace and in our personal lives. Conflict coaching can help anyone facing a potential conflict. It can be useful for those adapting to a change in organizational structure, work setting, team makeup or direction, or in assisting emerging leaders to reach their greatest potential by managing the inevitable bumps along the way. It can help prepare for, as poet David Whyte suggests “the courageous conversation.. the one you don’t want to have...” How can conflict coaching be valuable to organizations and individuals? Save Time, Energy & Money: Mishandled conflict consumes valuable time. It is costly and time consuming and if left to escalate, can create an increasingly toxic environment. Talking through conflict issues and carefully considering options with a conflict professional has the potential to redirect negative energy to creative thinking. Coaching provides tremendous value which can mean thousands of dollars or more to your bottom line.
