Leadership Development, Team Building & Training (at your location)

When your business has a problem that just won’t seem to go away, or you’re not getting the results you want from your team, our in-house consulting services can help. Our staff will talk with you and your team, analyze where you are and where you want to be, and provide cost-effective solutions to get you there. Our coaching and team building specialists and speakers are some of the best trainers in the world, and are also brilliant business people who have found success in the real world. When it comes to improving your skills and taking your team and your own career to the next level, there’s really no substitute for a live learning event. By interacting with a roomful of peers, asking questions of subject matter experts, and examining real-world applications of the information you’re covering, it really helps cement your new knowledge.

The Coaching Pros host a wide array of topics covering the challenges you’re facing every day. Our live events are led by expert trainers who have been in your shoes and know the issues and concerns you’re facing, and can help you develop plans to solve them. Walk away knowing you can handle whatever comes next. Delivered in interactive and fun style, each of our live events will provide you with the latest information, tips, techniques, and best practices needed to make the most of your knowledge so you can confidently use it— and take your career to the next level. Most of our live events are presented in a one-two day format designed to be flexible enough to meet your needs. Some topics can be presented in a condensed format if combined with other trainings or as a prelude to future training within a partner program.

The benefits of live training:

Get the most up-to-date information delivered by experts in the field. Receive in-depth training on the topics you need designed for your team. Participate with other departments dealing with the same problems you are. Experience fun and interactive activities help you practice your new skills so you’ll be comfortable using them. Take advantage of the opportunity to ask questions face-to-face about the problems you’re dealing with right now.

Departmental/Job Specific Training

Perhaps you could be the trainer to all of your team. But when would you have time to do your job and enjoy it too? Get the training you need in the subjects that matter most to you. Most courses are available in half day power course or a full day workshop.
Partner Programs & Consulting Services

These programs typically last from three to six months depending on the size of your organization and types of training we are incorporating into your program. Choose the areas that you wish to see the most improvement and we’ll develop a timeline and action plan that will get you the results you need. Not sure what areas to address first? An onsite assessment with you, your leaders and frontline team is just the place to start. They see the challenges every day and what better way to start the engagement process than with those who have the most contact with your customers.
Live (Off-Site) Training Events & Team Building Adventures

Our seminars are fast-paced, fun and interactive. It’s a great way to learn new skills along with like-minded people or sharpen your existing ones and reenergize yourself in the process. Check the calendar of events for upcoming trainings near you.

Why host or attend a team building adventure? Simple. Team building is about discovering how people work and think. Team building events and adventures around the world are a growing phenomenon. It is a common practice for most organizations today to hold team building events at either department level or company level at least once a year. One of the main reason is that most managers today believe team building events are able to bond organization members together both horizontally (between subordinates) or vertically (between managers and subordinates). However, what is lacking is the understanding of the concept of team building. As a result, team building events today often end up to become merely a trip to the park, a one-night stay at a posh resort or an afternoon of games. The outcome has left much to be desired unless the concept of team building is well understood which is essential to maximize the benefits for the time spent.

Team Building is defined as “interaction among members of work teams to learn how each member thinks and works”. Unfortunately, in today’s practice, the definition of team building has been misinterpreted. The key phrase here is “to learn how each member thinks and works”.

Our team building adventures allow for interaction that leads to understanding. A “trip to the park” will not create lasting results. It may promote interaction, everyone may have a good laugh, but it is not structured enough to have everyone walk away The best they could probably remember is that they had a good time. Our programs allow you to clearly define what you expect to see as a result of the training adventure. We specialize in helping you be able to lay out your goals. At which level of interaction are they at? To which level do you want them to interact? Bear in mind the purpose of interaction is to create understanding, and understanding that will help each other to know where they come from and why do they act in a certain manner. Useful information could be gained (e.g. the person’s family background, how was s/he brought up, what are his pastimes, who are his friends.) All this may just surface from the interaction, but generally needs more structured prompting.

Team Building Adventures provide behavioral opportunities for revealing underlying thinking and behavior patterns. Initiative games are best used to see how we behave. A problem is given to a team to solve. Each of the team members may have different ways of solving the puzzle. By allowing team members to understand why Mr. A, Mr. B and Mr. C makes certain decision will enable the team mates to understand better why Mr. A makes such decisions in the workplace. The process is crucial, not the ends it is the means. (i.e. During one raft building activity, one facilitator shouted to the team, “If your raft sinks will just show that you are unable to work as a team”.) It is not important if the raft sinks or not, most importantly, how each of them makes decision and reacted in front of the eyes of their team mates is the most important! Most importantly, team building events are meant to take people away from the office and put them in an unfamiliar place. It is where people are most likely dressed informally and therefore, behave differently. At these occasions, positions in office are often forgotten and the true self thus appears. As one participant once said, “We tend to put down our guard and behave differently”. Not only do we act differently, we say different things too. The way we act and behave out of the formal work setting is often our truer self. Team building experiences should help to show our true ‘human’ nature. We may start to notice that Director A has a great sense of humor and is a real joker. Or the HR director has a kind, caring soul. Knowing each other’s’ true attitude and behavior will often change our perceptions of fellow workers. The next time you meet Director A along the office corridor, you would probably give him a grin as a reminder of what happened at the team building event the other day!

Professional Coaching & Personal Development

Having a coach to guide you isn’t a luxury you can do without, it is a necessity you must have.

There are many reasons that an individual or team might choose to work with a coach, but most the important reasons are to avoid getting stuck a hamster wheel and continue to invest in yourself. Business and life seems to move faster and faster, and get more competitive all the time. It is difficult to keep up with what is happening in your industry. We get so focused on what needs done right now that we lose sight of the big picture and impede our own progress. Accountability is one of the greatest strengths of working with a coach.
