BUSINESS & EXECUTIVE COACHING
Executive coaching helps corporate executives and business owners become more effective team, department and company leaders. Getting to the next level of performance – whether in a climate of growth or contraction – is imperative for most leaders. Good coaches routinely get more out of us than we would get out of ourselves; increased results in sales, profitability, productivity, etc.. Great coaches inspire us to transcend and transform our relationship to our circumstances and/or market trends. They not only help us reach new heights in terms of results, but great coaches also empower us to acheive a sense of vitality, satisfaction, and fulfillment, while tending to reduce stress and anxiety levels commonly experienced in high pressure corporate environments.
Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the U.S., affecting 40 million adults age 18 or older, about 18% of the U.S. population. (Source: NIMH) Whether social or performance related, anxiety can be crippling and even debilitating, let alone limiting to one’s personal or professional development. Using time tested emotional intelligence techniques, anxiety-specific exercises and training regimens, Damon offers a non-therapeutic, practical, yet empathetic approach to anxiety management.
Management is defined as “the process of dealing with and/or controlling things or people.” Achieving results ourselves is one thing, but managing others to achieve results is another thing entirely. Being able to effectively inspire, motivate, and implement structure and strategy in others is not a “natural” skill set for most people. Like anything, these skills generally require new information, techniques, and most importantly, training. Training is key to most managers’ success and longevity, but this type of training is often not an in-house area of concentration for most companies. Given the historically unparalleled diversity of our current culture, cross-generational management and emotional intelligence have never been more relevant than in today’s work place. Our Power Play Management and Millennial Management Training courses address these elements profoundly and dynamically! The more connected our team members feel to us – having the sense that we “get” them – the harder they tend to work and the more productive they tend to be.
