Individualized coaching is often the best option for individuals wishing to invest in professional development but whose schedule does not permit attendance at group training, whose language needs warrant special attention, or whose communication skills play a major role in their job performance.
One-on-one coaching supports participants in their efforts to improve their intelligibility, confidence, and cultural appropriateness. Assessments and oral interviews help customize the sessions to the needs of each individual and focus on skills critical for job success.
Those who choose coaching often cite the following reasons:
Those who choose coaching over group training benefit from the following:
Custom-designed language training - Language sessions are not pre-packaged. Each session is designed to meet the unique needs and work situation of each individual.
Exclusive time with an experienced language trainer - The coaching participant gets all the attention and feedback focused on the skills needed for his/her performance.
Low risk atmosphere - As the only participant, one can try out new skills and discuss workplace challenges in a relaxed, comfortable environment.
Flexibility - Appointment times and places fit individual schedules.
Time spent wisely in language training - Each participant proceeds at their own pace, focusing on needed skills and not spending time practicing or re-learning things they already know well. They can address workplace communication issues as they arise.« Back to News and Reviews
