Certified coach for Team Advantage, a breakthrough process for producing sustainable improvements in team performance and productivity that organizations need to succeed. Team Advantage has proven effective in producing measurable results for businesses, both large and small. It is unique in that it provides a framework to become a productivity program, a team-building program, a communication-skills program, a conflict-resolution program, all wrapped in a single application. Most team building exercises are short-term events. Team Advantage is a totally different approach that revolves around a “game plan” that is created by the team around a common measurable business goal to foster ownership and action learning. A major difference in this program in the ongoing “real-time” support from an experienced professional coach for four months. Using on-the-spot coaching, the team leader and the team members are coached on how to make the behavior modifications necessary to achieve stretch goals and improve long-term productivity.
“I participated in Shirley’s “Re-Ignite Your Spark!” 6-week group coaching program and cannot speak more highly of its value. Shirley has innate empathy that gently yet expertly has guided me to recognize positive changes that I can implement in my daily routine. Her focus on celebrating our strengths and accomplishments as individuals and as a group have been invaluable to building healthy habits that I intend to continue building upon. The group environment not only provided us a safe and supportive network during our weekly sessions, but also a chance to gain perspective on what the others were going through. It gave me a strong sense of serenity to know that all of our paths are so different yet the same in so many ways. I recommend Shirley’s program to anyone who is looking for ways to manage the overwhelm in their day to day lives and who couldn’t use that much needed support from a truly objective and supportive group and coach?! Thank you Shirley!”
