Sustainability and coaching

Business and sustainability

Business has traditionally tended to treat environmental issues as an additional overhead to the production of quality products.

Recently, a variety of businesses of different sizes in different industries have found that a more pro-active, creative approach can actually IMPROVE the bottom line. Done well, sustainability is PROFITABLE.

Business coaching

Sustainable business collaborationBusiness coaching is an emerging professional service that creates an ongoing structure for business principals and their employees to improve their performance as individuals and in the team environment:
– Identifying clear goals for personal and business improvement; and
– Identifying and implementing the behavioural and process changes necessary to achieve them.

Coaching complements training

Research shows that, in general, 20% of the information in a training course is effectively taken back to the workforce and used. When training is followed up with coaching, this has been shown to improve to 80%.
