Confidence and Motivation: Coaching provides support and encouragement, boosting employees' confidence and motivation. As they receive guidance and see progress in their development, employees become more engaged, committed, and willing to take on new challenges.
Career Development: Coaching can also contribute to employees' long-term career development. By exploring career aspirations, identifying development opportunities, and creating growth plans, coaches can help individuals align their goals with organizational needs, fostering a sense of purpose and direction.

Programs begin with a free assessment session that may include a conversation about goals and personal professional history.
We will define communication strengths and needs and decide together a plan for moving forward.
Following an initial assessment, the coach works to set goals and create a customized action plan. This plan becomes the roadmap for leaders to develop. The plan designed may require weekly one-hour coaching sessions or may best be served by meeting once a month for a 3-hour session. Plans will vary and together coach and client will define the best plan to meet the desired goals; work together; work in real-time on projects such as meetings, presentations, conferences, and appearances. Sessions are scheduled one to three months in advance so that clients can set aside the time and make it a priority. The coach will be available for extra sessions whenever there is a major event or if a concern arises.
Frequently homework may include a materials purchase recommendation (book, journal...) Germaine Life does not sell materials or benefit financially from the sale of any recommended materials.
We, coach and client, work in partnership every step of the way. When appropriate the coach will meet with the clients staff or team to review goals, communication and action plans.
