Essential Training

Setting the Foundation

Our first building block to the International Coach Federation Associate Certified Coach (ACC) certification.

The influence of our communication cannot be overstated: 

A study by Talk, Inc. found that leaders were valuing interaction that resembles the model of two people talking and were extending efforts to “have a conversation” with their people or to “advance the conversation” within their organization.
These practices were enabling company’s to achieve higher levels of trust, improve operation efficiency, gain greater motivation and commitment among employees. They went on to say that the power of organizational conversation isn’t’ the kind of power that manifests itself as control over a person or process. Rather, it’s the kind of conversation that makes a person or process effective because the conversation is fuel.

Whether you want to launch a new career, incorporate coaching skills into your existing career, or strengthen your relationships, you’ll find the mind-sets and applications of Essential Training to be a potent combination for maximizing your effectiveness.
