Coach'-ing: Facilitating people in their own commitment and enthusiasm to accomplish their objectives
Kristin G Bainger y.
For over 30 years I've worked in leadership roles in corporate, not-for-profit, and as a business owner. Committed to coaching leaders, mentoring individuals & building teams to foster communication, pride, trust, and effective group identity.
There are different opinions on the roles of coaches vs. consultants. In my view, after the initial information gathering stage, a consultant’s job is to pivot towards providing tools or processes that make for a more effective work environment.
Coaching requires asking more than they tell, working with individuals and teams to identify behaviors that may be holding them back, costing them resources, or robbing them of opportunities.
GermaineLIFE focuses on optimizing the strengths of small business owners and C-level leaders and their teams to navigate change, overcome challenges, and bridge the gap between their current state and vision. By incorporating both the wisdom and talents of the client and the soft skills or tools that best address their concerns, together, we build sustainable solutions.
Executive, Product Coaching
A Comprehensive Approach
Coaches, whether working with professional athletes or business leaders, have the same basic goals and understandings. We help top performers to mitigate self-limiting beliefs and behaviors. They are skilled at helping professionals reach beyond their comfort zone to achieve optimum success.
My goal is to help individuals achieve product-related goals quickly and effectively while learning the skills needed to solve the challenges that arise along the way.
Coaching is a professional relationship that requires a personal connection, trust, and understanding between the coach and the client. It is essential to make certain the coach or consultant you choose is a good fit for you or your team's needs.
