According to William Bridges, “Job security lies in the person, not the position.” If that is true, then investing in personal development is not only wise, it’s a critical component of long term career success.
Pat White offers coaching programs that enable you to be the architect of your own life.
Many professionals today are moving forward and investing in coaching for themselves in order to collaborate on more powerful outcomes. As a Master Certified Coach of executives and professionals, Pat White works with people who are focused on delivering increasingly greater performance and results in their chosen work.
We offer three Business Coaching Programs all of which:
- Develop and enhance excellence in performance, leadership skills, and agility
- Strengthen organizational effectiveness and personal legacies
- Facilitate development for “fast trackers” or leaders who have a “blind spot” which may be impeding performance or readiness for promotion
- Can be customized to meet your needs.
Program 1. Executive Coaching
This option is for you if you are an important contributor in the organization who may be facing enormous stretch goals or are falling short of meeting hoped-for expectations. It is our most intense coaching package and is designed to assist the person in moving quickly towards their highest goals. Contact us to learn about what is included.
“I am the former President and CEO of a small international business. I started working with Pat as my executive coach shortly after I was promoted to that position. I was very happy I made that move — and so were my employees!
Pat helped me to understand what it means to be an executive and how to navigate in that role with ease and grace. I learned how to manage my staff as an executive, and why that is a very different animal from managing in other positions.
Through coaching, assessments and the other materials Pat provided as part of my package, I was able to understand and utilize my strengths as a leader; to minimize/manage my deficits; and to appropriately delegate tasks for which I was not suited to other staff members.
Pat challenged me to be my best, while supporting me to take the steps necessary to make my best a reality. The executive position can be very lonely and it was so wonderful to have a good coach on my side. She helped me think things through and create plans to be pro-active rather than re-active. She encouraged me and celebrated my wins with me.
I shudder to think about how things would have gone if I had not had an executive coach! I know that I would have made a lot more mistakes that I would regret in hindsight; and life as an executive would have been a lot more difficult”.
– A. Kirschenmann, (former President, now an Executive Coach herself)
“After many years with the same company, I ran into potential derailment performance issues.
With Pat’s coaching, I learned the skills needed to adapt to our present culture and increase my internal customer satisfaction.
Through it all, she endorsed me and helped to make a very painful experience a satisfactory growth opportunity.”- Senior Vice President, Willis Inc.
“Pat White has been my business coach for some time and I highly recommend her. I own a C.P.A. firm and have clients that come from various industries (from professionals to manufacturing to retail) and various backgrounds.
Pat has been extremely effective in helping me to understand the different personalities of my various clients and how my communication style can affect my interactions with them.
Having Pat work with me has been an investment that has been well worth it.”- N. Clayton, Clayton & Associates, CO
Program 2: Transition Coaching
This type of coaching helps you through the process of life-shifts and finding a path to move forward. Typical issues include career and or life transitions. Most clients are looking for clarity, a plan and motivation to stay on their journey. The coaching addresses the tactical and emotional support needed to step out into today’s challenging job market. Tools used address finding your passion, bringing clarity to how you present yourself, and strategic ways of networking.
“Pat White was recommended to me as the ‘go to’ Transition Coach. When I called her six weeks ago I was facing a huge cross road, was unemployed, felt confused and purposeless and my mind was stuck in a dark state of despair. My goal, I stated to her, was to figure out what I wanted to do with my life, get my head in the game and get a job as soon as possible. I had never spoken with a Coach before and quite honestly did not know where else to turn.
After our first meeting, Pat immediately identified and analyzed where my disconnect and poor direction of thought had gotten me. She laid a new, solid foundation and together we re-directed my entire way of thinking and my approach to achieving my goal. Literally within four weeks everything changed.
With her coaching, my homework and training exercises, I now find myself trying to balance a new, wonderful full time job in the field in which I’d been searching, and in addition, three part time jobs that I love so much I cannot give up.
While Pat continues to guide and encourage me to find proper balance with all of this, my only challenge comes as a result of the huge success of reaching my goal far, far beyond my expectations. I could not have asked for a better outcome than my experience with my‘go to’ Coach – Pat White!” – C. Mindermann, Esthetician, Massage Envy
Program 3: Team Success Coaching
Many leaders want to move their team from performing well to experiencing outstanding team success. They also want to transfer their leadership competencies to others so that everyone can benefit from the collaboration and resulting synergy.
Drawing on her 25 years of working with leaders and their teams, Pat White’s approach is to work in conjunction with the team leader to identify gaps in both leadership as well as team culture. Pat assists the team in developing clear vision, strategic objectives and implementation plans that will succeed and make the talent investment worthwhile. The follow-up coaching (both individually and as a group) ensures alignment with critical success factors.
