Coaching and Consulting

Consulting Services Our desire is to come along side you in order to strategize how to move from your the current state to where you want to be. Listening, asking questions and co-creating next steps ensures steady progress. Vision Creation and Vision Casting: You can't get there until you have a clear picture of where you want to go. Focus in on a clear picture of what you want for your future and make it known. Missional Audits & Asset Mapping: Once the vision is identified and is being cast, how does what you do and who you are align with that vision? A missional audit brings you to the place of intentional choice and asset mapping uncovers the resources that may have been overlooked in order to attain the vision. Strategic Planning for Mission: Face the future with intentionality. Identify those process goals that will help you get where you believe you are to go. Leading Change: You could continue to do things the same old way but then you would probably get the same old results. Leading change is a not for the faint of heart and that is why it is seldom accomplished. Wise leaders benefit from consulting alliances for a successful change process.
