Executive Coaching and Career Coaching offer a neutral, safe, and supportive process whether you are in transition between jobs or during the different stages of an employee’s journey.
Confident Interviewing – Get the job you want.
How confident are you at selling yourself during the interview process?
In order to master the interview, break through the fears that can surface while you’re taking the steps to prepare for it.
Career Coaching is where you learn how to present yourself with confidence. You’ll practice with feedback that will lead you to walking into the interview with a clear message to the employer that you’re the best candidate for the job.
By engaging in an Interview Coaching process with me you can learn how to:
- Clearly communicate your unique combination of skills and experiences, and why they are a good fit with the employers current needs.
- Feel comfortable with presenting yourself in an integrity-based manner that makes you feel proud, satisfied and happy with your achievements.
- Exude competence while remaining totally calm. Learn how to leave an interview feeling assured the potential employer knows who you are, and what you have to offer to them.
- Leave the interview feeling confident that you did your absolute best, and whether you get the job or not, it was a step in the right direction.
Effective Leadership – Now that you have the job.
In a world of accelerating change, increasing complexities and nebulous uncertainties, is that really enough? It takes teamwork to build a successful working environment, and provide a safe and neutral setting for employees to expand their capacities.
Experts agree that coaching is a powerful and effective tool in managing workplace change. Partnering your employee with a coach can create a smooth transition, encourage cooperation and ensure success at any stage.
The coaching process includes helpful strategies and easy-to-apply tools such as goal implementation, mastering communication, accountability, and expansion of leadership and collaborative capacities. Statistics also indicate that coaching with the intention of achieving agreed upon results costs far less per employee than the loss and/or replacement of new personnel.
So whether your employee is in the process of onboarding or up for a promotion, I’m here to make that transition seamless. Or, if you have a long-term employee who needs to improve due to recently not-so-rosy performance appraisal, my coaching process has been proven to effectively turn weaknesses into newfound strengths.
Onboarding: In the US it’s been noted that $37 billion a year is wasted due to lack of proper direction of a new-hire. Coaching ensures that employees are successful by thoroughly educating them about their job function and addressing concerns in a safe and neutral environment, creating a sustainable strategy for performance, as well as a giving professional guidance for the career development and growth of those new employees.
Promotions: According to Forbes Magazine about 40% of executives who get promoted will fail in the first 18 months. It has been shown that proper executive coaching can positively impact this statistic by reducing the length of the learning curve, clarifying employer expectations and implementing a plan for building rapport with the new boss, team members, direct reports, and key personnel. It also provides support in managing the high level of anxiety associated with handling new responsibilities of the promotion.
Turnarounds: If, for whatever reason, a once-valued employee’s performance has faltered and a bad performance appraisal has been given, coaching can make a significant impact in turning that employee around. Coaching can turn weaknesses intro strengths and significantly increases the ability of that employee, to not only handle current duties, but to take on new ones as well. It is also a viable and cost-effective option to retain the right employee.Contact Me Now

“I’ve felt for some time that coaching would provide the objective perspective I needed to take my next step in my career and life, but I wanted to make sure that I chose the right coach – and Alanna came highly recommended from a friend. In three short sessions, we uncovered the key behavioral pattern that had been holding me back, not just professionally, but in all areas of life. Through her coaching, I have managed to heal a broken relationship with my father, and work on aspects of myself that are allowing me to be a better Mom and partner. Alanna’s approach is swift, and truly insightful. She utilizes common sense in a relaxed, conversational style. I can’t recommend her enough for fast, effective results.”
