Executive & Management Coaching: Coaching Method
Advantage Tech Inc. can utilize a number of methods or combinations to suit clients' needs.
Coaching can be via the telephone through pre-arranged appointments, and one-on one.
With all coaching contracts, it is possible to do some work by phone and some by email, should that be more advantageous.
Organizational teams may desire a physical presence in addition to teleforums.
Our coaches are supported by state-of-the-art industrial
and psychological assessment tools including 360 Degree Feedback technology. (view sample report)
Upon "graduation", our individual clients emerge better groomed, rounded out as individuals, more accomplished, renewed and ready to confront and tackle existing and future challenges at a higher level.
Team Coaching - Business Coaching
We can work with your team in teleforums or video-conferencing to move you beyond impasses, power struggles and limited contributions that are the natural hazards of an organization in change. Become a group that experiences a synergy where differences are celebrated, appreciated and valued.
Professional coaches provide an ongoing partnership designed to help clients produce fulfilling results in their personal and professional lives. Coaches help business leaders and managers improve their performances and enhance the quality of their lives.
Coaches are trained to listen, to observe and to customize their approach to individual client needs. They seek to elicit solutions and strategies from the client; they believe the client is naturally creative and resourceful. The coach's job is to provide support to enhance the skills, resources, and creativity that the client already has.
Business coaching is not a profession but an approach used to deliver services, a field that is dynamic, fast-paced and as challenging as the jobs of those being coached. We are highly experienced entrepreneurs working as external coaches for corporations using executive coaching as one - or the only - approach to leadership and organizational development. We provide integrity during our coaching engagements and continued work with clients, and provide awareness of both our and your own values in responding to changing workplace trends and a flexible business model that reflects their own goals and lifestyle.

A mentor is usually an older and/or more experienced person who provides advice, guidance and support to a younger and/or less experienced person for the purpose of personal, professional, spiritual or life growth. In business settings, those groomed for advancement are often formally or informally mentored by senior managers.
Mentors are seen as experts and show protégés' "the ropes."
A consultant provides advice or expert knowledge to a client in a particular field or discipline. It's predominantly one-way communication, with accountability on the consultant for delivering on the outcome. The client is expected to implement the consultant's recommendations.
Business consultants are seen as experts and advise on business issues.
A counselor or therapist focuses on psychosocial issues and/or psychological disorders with an emphasis on the diagnosis and analysis of the client/patient. The focus is exclusively on the client/patient and there's a low possibility that the counselor or therapist will request feedback.
Counselors or therapists are typically seen as experts and try to heal psychosocial dysfunctionality.
