Pathfinder Coaching and Consulting offers the following services to help you achieve what you want in business and in life:
Executive Coaching and Leadership Development - is about supporting executives, managers and leaders in visioning, goal setting, problem solving and achieving career, corporate and individual goals previously thought to be unattainable. I help corporate and government executives and leaders clearly identify professional development plans and goals (often after 360 review assessment debriefs); learn to identify and manage blind spots and any maladaptive behavioural, communication and relationship skills; and practice and implement effective leadership and relationship styles and skills.
I work with corporations and leaders to identify leadership and teamwork issues, develop action plans and effect changes to ensure the highest functioning leaders and teams an organization can have. I also work with corporations to introduce coaching into the management and human development processes and the organizational culture.
Career Coaching - is about helping executives, leaders and professionals to clearly envision and map out their career paths and make effective career and/or business development decisions and transitions. I have extensive experience in helping executives in the public and private sectors with both voluntary and involuntary career transitions (e.g. termination and severance situations) as well as optimizing their onboarding/orientation experiences in new careers and/or businesses.
The career coaching services that I offer include: dealing with, negotiating, and moving on from job loss, termination and severance situations; clarifying career visions, goals and plans; identifying appropriate career and job opportunities which match ones interests, strengths, experience, gifts and talents; reviewing and revising resumes and cover letters; networking and professional relationship building; honing interview, presentation, and communication skills; landing and excelling in informational and formal interviews; identifying and managing fears and maladaptive behaviours, relationship and communication patterns; and developing and applying appropriate negotiation skills in the job search and offer processes. I also use career and leadership assessments, where appropriate.
Organizational Systems Coaching - is about
helping people develop strong, cohesive and intentional relationships
in their work and in their lives.
Business and Professional Coaching - is about helping business people, entrepreneurs and professionals to clearly identify visions, goals and targets; develop business, marketing and action plans; and supporting and challenging them in achieving them and more. I serve as a sounding board, motivator, mentor and a catalyst to support business people and professionals in finding clarity, balance, success and insight in their businesses and their lives. I also coach and mentor coaches, consultants, counselors and therapists.
Personal Life Coaching - is about supporting individuals in finding more meaning, balance, joy and effectiveness in their lives. I help individuals find direction in their lives and achieve results they did not think possible previously. Finding clarity of life purpose, overcoming fears and obstacles, tapping into creative gifts and talents, achieving balance and living a fully engaged, connected and conscious life are areas that I work on with my clients. I guide individuals in finding a balance of mind, body, spirit and soul. I also coach partners and couples.
Attention Deficit Disorder/Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADD/ADHD) Coaching - is about working with adults with ADD/ADHD to help them understand and effectively live with and manage their conditions including focusing, paying attention, calming hyperactive and impulsive tendencies, developing and implementing plans, overcoming resistance, organizing, managing stress, managing time effectively, and building and sustaining relationships. I help executives, professionals and entrepreneurs to manage their conditions, tap into their creativity, wisdom and gifts and optimize their effectiveness in business, life, and relationships. I also work with partners, couples and families to live effectively with their ADD/ADHD and build aligned personal and professional relationships.
