Business Relationship Coaching
Business is about several elements working together harmoniously to produce a desired outcome. Some of those elements include marketing, sales, accounting, management, customer service and so on.
There are scores of companies, consultants and coaches dedicated to providing support for any and all of those functions in business
The one thing that ties all of those elements together and can determine the success of any department or the entire enterprise is relationships.
When it comes down to it, business is about relationships. Deals are routinely made or broken based on the quality of relationship among the deal makers.
A company is healthy and high functioning or toxic and dysfunctional depending upon the quality of relationships that exist among management, departments and employees.
Being “relationally intelligent” is paramount to success in business if you measure success not merely by the “bottom line” numbers, but by the sense of joy, contribution and pride everyone involved derives from their participation and interactions with one another.
Our coaching for business success focuses on developing high functioning members of the team, whether that team consists of a partnership of two or a small company of 100 employees with stratified management and labor.
We do this through training and coaching in several areas, including:
- authentic high performance communication skills for elegant and efficient coordination of action
- enlightened conflict resolution aimed at resolving the real source of conflict, not merely pacifying symptoms for expediency
- generating an emotionally vital and healthy atmosphere in which creativity and collaboration can flourish
We work with spousal business partnerships, non-familial partnerships and family owned businesses. We can facilitate the crafting of purpose and agreements at the beginning of an enterprise as well as mediating a no-blame/no-fault dissolution of a partnership.
With over 35 years experience as creative marriage and business partners (we have started and successfully operated several businesses and non-profit enterprises) we are intimately acquainted with the trials and tribulations as well as the rewards and benefits of working together and flourishing in a marriage partnership.
If you are a couple thinking of going into business together, we can help you think through your unique situation to design for success and avoid predictable pitfalls.
If you are a couple already in business together and you are running into challenges or are in some level of crisis, we can help resolve your issues and restore trust and focus.
If you own or are part of a small business and you would like to create greater alignment, cooperation, collaboration and creativity among your employees, department or team, we can help you, too.
Listen as Layne and Paul interview Scott Blanchard, Executive Director of Client Solutions for Blanchard Training and Development, Inc.
“Heart to Heart Talks is one of the most impactful communication technologies we’ve ever employed within our company. We have leveraged the practice of Heart-to-Heart Talks within our company more than anything else in the last ten years.”
The truth is, we are more than coaches. In the strictest sense, coaches help you to clarify and create your future. Consultants solve problems. And mentors, as defined by Webster’s, are wise and faithful counselors. All these terms describe what we are to our clients.
Depending on what is wanted or needed in the moment, we help you learn new skills and coach you in mastering them. If there is a specific problem we bring our expert advice to show you how to solve it. More often than not, we ask you powerful questions that help you connect with your own answers and we partner with you in following through.
