Executive and Individual Coaching

As a direct result of a client request back in 1987, we began working with individuals on a one-to-one basis. Coaching is a direct, highly interactive way for individuals at all levels to take advantage of assistance in developing their own abilities to their fullest potential. It puts action behind the belief that people are the most valuable asset of a business.

Ladder of Success

Through coaching, Paradigm Associates offers services that can help any individual both identify and achieve their goals and attain their desired results on a consistent basis, both for their own success and for the success of the organization.

We provide coaching services that can enhance your success in a variety of circumstances.

  • An external ear; Sometimes our clients are chief executives who are looking for an objective third ear to assist them while they work through those "mentally messy situations" that they aren't comfortable discussing with other members of the senior management team.
  • Flexible development program: Many entrepreneurs and self-directed executives are looking for ways to enhance their own sales or leadership skills on a timetable that needs to flex around their work and travel schedules.
  • Fast track; Individuals who are being groomed for additional responsibility and who have been identified by their organizations as being on a "fast track" take advantage of coaching services to help accelerate this process.
  • Overcoming obstacles; Sometimes individuals are struggling under their current job responsibilities, yet the organization values them and prefers to help them develop their potential rather than let them go.

Coaching provides an interaction of encouragement and support, with honest and constructive feedback, on a regular basis. It leads you through a personal self evaluation, helps you to recognize and understand your strengths and weaknesses, your attitudes and habits, and your motivations. It assists you to set the right short-term and long-term goals, create an action plan, and measure your progress. It helps you improve your time management, productivity, communication abilities, decision making and problem solving.

Effective coaching typically encompasses the personal realm as well as the professional. It supports you in an examination of your personal values and beliefs and their impact on your performance and, in turn, helps you enhance your personal and professional success.
