VK COACHING PROGRAMS THAT REKINDLE EMPLOYEE TALENT AND BOOST THE INVISIBLE POTENTIAL IN YOUR CROSS-CULTURAL AND DIVERSE TEAMS

When your company’s employees are buying in to your message, you can see it in the day-to-day workplace culture in the form of higher productivity, more satisfied customers, and increased employee retention.

This fosters a cooperative, motivated workplace free of entitlement and indifference, creating an uptick in cash flow on a more consistent basis.

Unfortunately, most companies fall short in this area, and as a result are faced with ongoing employee challenges, including Resistance, Complacency, High Turnover, Internal Conflict, and Communication Gaps.

I believe happiness is the new productivity and employ this philosophy in every coaching encounter, in a curious, inquisitive, and non-judgmental way. The results speak for themselves.

Let us take a look at your coaching options, keeping in mind that each of the services below are custom fit to your organization’s specific situation.

SERVICES

ONE-ON-ONE COACHING

If you are a leader in your organization looking for a more personal, one-on-one coaching experience, then this is the option for you.

You may have your own concerns and challenges with your leadership role, ranging from how to lead more effectively to how to not only accept but to embrace your leadership role.

I have a knack for getting to the core of your concerns quickly, and can guide you with proven techniques, providing you with tools and strategies to help you navigate your responsibilities with more finesse, courage, and confidence.

Results are different for everyone, but many of my clients have seen:
  • More willingness to accept and trust yourself

TEAM COACHING

Your teams are your company’s nucleus, so it is vital to have every team member working to their full potential, maximizing their personal strengths while keeping the goals of the organization at the forefront.

Team Coaching can help your team embrace its common purpose, while guiding your teams to increased productivity, renewed energy, and clarify the direction.

One way I do this is through systemic team coaching, which is much like a 3-legged stool with each component having equal significance:

  1. How team members look at themselves
  2. How they interact with the rest of the team
  3. How they interact with the team leader and organization as a whole

This is a powerful collaborative approach that gives everyone a common purpose and a sharper focus on collective leadership, breaking new ground in all areas of the team dynamic.

Here are a few possible team coaching scenarios:
  • Helping a team come together on a critical new assignment
  • Improving communication between team members
  • Resolving conflict between team members
  • Showing a team how to better traverse changing situations
  • Guiding team members to be on board with the company’s mission
  • Optimizing and mobilizing teams in the virtual environment
  • Adapting to the demands of a fast-changing, hyper-complex world
  • Learning to navigate and embracing change – a must-have in an increasingly volatile, unpredictable, complex, and ambiguous (VUCA) world
We have seen outstanding results:
  • Teams are more confident in how they communicate with each other
  • Team members relay questions and concerns more efficiently with supervisors and fellow members
  • Accomplishments are recognized with more regularity
  • Conflicts and frustrations are improved due to better communication
  • Teams are more motivated and optimistic
  • Team members are asking for new tasks and challenges
Team Up and Succeed: From One (Wo)Man Show to Team Power
Embark on a journey of self-discovery and professional team development as you learn the intricate aspects of teams and teamwork, and all the ways they impact your organization.

This robust program even features a module on virtual and hybrid team environments.

This 5 Month Program includes:

  • 5 One-Day Group Sessions (One per month)
  • Number of participants: 6-8

PRIVATE COACHING

Being in a job that no longer feels right can leave you feeling helpless, frustrated, and demoralized.

Somewhere along the way, for any number of reasons (or maybe no reason at all), you lost the enthusiasm you once had for your position, and you feel it is time for a change.

Unfortunately, your employer may not be aware or supportive of these feelings, so you are left to your own devices as you search for a way out.

And here is the biggest challenge: There is a big difference between THINKING about taking action and actually DOING it.

So, you come up with a myriad of rationalizations for the status quo:

  • When I turn 30 (40 or 50…)
  • When my children start school
  • When my children finish school
  • When I get that next qualification
  • When the weather changes

…and the list goes on.

Or maybe you ARE taking action on your own, but it feels like you are spinning your wheels with nothing to show for it. And the clock is ticking. Staying in the same place is no longer an option.

This is where my private, individual coaching can guide you as you design your own life and career.

One important caveat: you must be ready to do the work. There will be learning, self-reflection, and real action taking. Your results will be proportionate to your efforts. And it will be SO worth it!

My clients have reported:

  • More fulfillment as they find the position they desired
  • More confidence as they start taking the necessary steps
  • More clarity on what they really want
  • More relief to have an empathetic sounding board

Schedule a call and let us start taking action.

"Dear Violetta, Just a quick note to say thank you for the great time we had during the management assistance training ...

You are such a charismatic woman with an amazing ability to encourage people, and with such a positive attitude ...

U.S.
Virtual Assistant – Germany

"Thanks to her charismatic personality, Violetta has no problem at all to engage all participants in her seminar right from the start. Right from the first minute, it was clear, this woman knows what she is talking about, and that it will be more than just theoretical knowledge that gets imparted. Her enthusiasm spreads easily to all the participants and the mutual interactions do not permit boredom to take hold even for a minute. "

I feel that her unique combination of patience and persistence, and her ability to relate to my experience as an expatriate has really helped me to maintain the learning pace needed to acquire the language and use it in my daily life, even in the midst of trying to balance the competing demands of work and family life."

Dr. G.L., Ph.D.
Senior Scientist – Pharmaceutical Industry – Germany

Her ability to professionally manage my (and others’) needs has direct and deep consequences for my ability to deliver results and on how I am regarded by others. She is already quite a strong performer, and so the coaching program is a both a recognition of her talent and also a development investment to take her performance to the next level. "

Supervisor to an Executive Assistant - Pharmaceutical Industry - Germany

R.R.
Executive Assistant - Pharmaceutical Industry - Germany

"I suddenly realized what impact my behavior and my thoughts had on myself and my surroundings. We were given tools that brought calmness to the way I think, feel and act. I have never experienced such team work. The time is ripe - and so am I - for new things, new thoughts and new emotions. The coaching helped me to let go. I would recommend coaching to everybody who faces life changes, who has to change directions. The coaching results can be felt and seen. Violetta's coaching fosters development on a personal and professional level."

Dr. Z.D., Ph.D.
Senior Scientist - Pharmaceutical Industry - Germany

"I have been taking language training with Violetta for one and a half years now.
What makes it so amazing is the way she is able to share her knowledge, embracing her passion for her work while teaching a language and culture. And not only with everyday life topics we are challenged with while getting integrated in a new country and culture but with added interesting work-related skills. A full package! Yes, there are a lot of professionals in this area, but only a few can evolve us in a way that brings us to learn more than a language, but also makes us discover matters which we can bring for our entire professional and personal life. More than grateful! "
