How does a student become a better musician, artist, scientist or team member…coaching of course!

The Coaching Center

In recent years, Business Coaching has grown, and has gone from fashionable to fundamental with leaders and organizations understanding how valuable it can be. In a nutshell, coaching increases effectiveness, expands thinking, identifies strengths and development areas, and is focused on setting and achieving challenging goals. Through the coach’s skilled use of powerful and thought-provoking questions, the client is supported to gain insights which in turn unlock the energy necessary for change.

We see an increase in the interest in, and need for, coaching services across many organizations, levels of employees, and in a variety of business skills and roles. In response to this increasing need, we are very pleased to announce the opening of the new “Coaching Center”!
