Inclusiva Now Offering Business Workshops and Executive Coaching

The Inclusiva website has recently undergone some important tweaks and updates.  In addition to some layout and navigational improvements, I'm pleased to announce a couple of exciting developments:

Now Offering Nifty New Workshops 

First off, Inclusiva is now offering speaking and instructional engagements on a variety of business topics, including:  
  • Time and Stress Management
  • The Art of Budgeting
  • Negotiation & Conflict Management
  • Unlocking the Mysteries of Crowdfunding (Always a...wait for it...crowdpleaser!  Sorry.)

Each of these topics can be addressed in either workshop or lecture format.  To learn more or to inquire about booking a workshop or keynote, please contact me to chat. 

C-Levels Types Need Coaching, Too

Secondly, I'm expanding my menu of services to include more specialized executive coaching, designed for corporate officers and nonprofit directors.  Inclusiva remains committed to serving a diverse array of clients, with a special emphasis on creative business owners.  Though the focus of the content may differ from the small business context, I believe that my interdisciplinary expertise and holistic approach to coaching will prove to be a game-changer for clients in larger organizational settings as well.    

The Harvard Business Review recently published research on the skills that many high-powered, entrepreneurially minded leaders lack.  The study found that while serial entrepreneurs tested above average in skills such persuasion, personal accountability and goal-setting, they ranked severely below average when it came to empathy, planning and organizing and self-management.  While these findings should come as little surprise to anyone who has ever worked closely with tech entrepreneurs, they suggest that executives in a wide variety of organizations need more effective help and guidance to develop these crucial skill sets.

Inclusiva's executive coaching services will address the needs of executives who want to challenge themselves to address their weaknesses head-on and develop their mastery in the following areas: Planning & Organizing, Delegation, Power and Humility, Problem-solving, Empathy, Interpersonal Dynamics, Conflict Management, Work-Life Balance, Time/Stress Management, etc. 

While often derisively referred to as "soft skills," these qualities exert a concrete impact on business performance - including the bottom line.  To learn more, check out Inclusiva's new Executive Coaching page, and refer Inclusiva to any corporate officers or nonprofit managers you think might be interested in holistic coaching services.
