We walk alongside our clients to help them propel careers, promote goals, inspire action, and drive change.
We work with clients on knowing how to tell their stories. What you say and how you say it affects your relationships, reputation, and future. In addition, with being a communications strategist, we are coaches.
Vanessa can combine both consulting and coaching while working with clients. She can help implement specific communications strategies in her coach approach with clients. How we communicate often determines how we lead, how we work with others, and how we build relationships.
Leadership, Executive & Professional Coaching
Executives and managers at all levels face various challenges, obligations and responsibilities. Results are often critical for leaders but without communicating effectively, there may be no way to achieve your goals or motivate a team.
Coaching engages and develops emotional intelligence. Coaching helps define strengths that can be leveraged in leadership. Being able to communicate with authenticity, to listen intently and respond appropriately, will define your leadership.
This is where leadership coaching can help you reach the next levels of success in your business, in your career and in life. Engage others to believe in your vision.
Coaching will assist you in clarity and vision for your strategies in your personal and professional life. Coaching allows for questioning the direction you are taking while carving out time and creating plans for change and goals.
Career Development Coaching
Are you wondering what path to take? Maybe you want to know “what’s next?” The questions we ask can help guide clients into the direction they need to go. Whether you have clarity or need to find it, a coach can walk alongside you to find your purpose, activate goals and create change. In this area of Career Coaching, we can help clients tell their stories. Career coaching helps facilitate the process of finding a new job, how job seekers frame previous job experience, their skills, and their career goals is important, and it’s different for everyone.
Team and Group Coaching
As a coach, Vanessa will work with individuals and teams within a particular environment to build trust and create change. Every work environment has its own pressures and challenges. How we communicate will affect how we work together. Our team approach will engage clients in a series of questions and exercises to develop successful organizations. The Group will lead the agenda and the topics they want coaching on and around.
If clients want a faith-based approach to our leadership as well as other coaching and consulting services, we will engage the conversations from a Christian perspective. We will take a confidential journey with our clients who are interested in Christian leadership. We will focus sessions on Christ-centered communication and biblical teaching. Vanessa has more than 20 years of experience in the faith-based arena. She has produced Christian programing that has aired around the globe.
We all have areas of life where we change. A life coach encourages clients on a range of professional and personal issues. Life coaching is not counseling, mentoring, and administering therapy. However, we can combine both consulting and coaching sessions for our clients to help them reach goals, overcome obstacles, work within in their strengths and improve their communications skills.
After assessing strengths, Vanessa works with clients to learn how to communicate their strengths and focus on them while managing their weaknesses in order to achieve goals and close gaps.
Growth Mindset Coaching
What would your colleagues and team members say about the company culture? What are your predominant thoughts each day? Do you want a growth mindset or status quote? Mindset for High-Performance Coaching is a 16-unit course that guides participants into a growth mindset. Research shows that we have between 50,000 and 70,000 thoughts per day, which works out to about one and a half thoughts per second. When we talk about the “mind” we are talking about the brain, in action.
If you think about the mindset of your team members, think about the environment or culture at your workplace.
Women Professional Development
As a consultant with the Women’s Business Institute (WBI), Vanessa works closely with women in leadership. She coaches women on management styles and team building as well as mentoring and communication strategies. Coaching helps clients gain confidence and move forward in their careers.
