How Do I Know if I Need a Consultant or a Certified Coach?
The great news is that our advisors are consultants or certified coaches, and some are both. As C-Vantage Advisors (CVA) partners, we leverage our combined vantage to provide whole person and company support.
Moreover, coaching is not consulting; the primary focus and process differ.
Consultants are generally subject matter experts that work closely with leaders to improve operations and efficiency; helping companies meet their goals by identifying, addressing, and overcoming obstacles.
A certified coach partners with people in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential, per the International Coaching Federation (ICF).
Do You Only Work with Established Organizations?
No, we work with organizations that are starting up as well. Our clients are at various stages of life and their career. They are leaders and influencers (aka those that can-do and will-do).
Do You Offer Ongoing Services?
Yes, our work with FIVE LENS People Development tools and processes allows us to partner with individuals, groups and teams for 6-months, one year and beyond to explore developmental essentials for high performance (e.g., understanding of self/others/team, conflict, feedback, trust, collaboration, thinking skills, and resilience).
How Do I Know if Working with CVA is Right for Me?
Whether you desire to uncover your highest and best self, or your organization needs a strategist to co-design and confirm viable next steps, we are confident that you will find the decision to partner with us a win-win.
A Global Consumer Awareness Study conducted by ICF shows there are seven top reasons people decide to partner with a coach:
Optimize individual/teamwork performance (43%)
Improve communication skills (39%)
Increase productivity (38%)
Expand career opportunities (35%)
Increase self-esteem/self-confidence (34%)
Manage work/life balance (34%)
Improve business management (32%)
We are subject matter and general knowledge experts who speak the coaching language.
together we can
We live in a VUCA World that is volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous. Relationships are now at the forefront. We are aware of our collective need to meaningfully connect with others where there is a mutual dynamic of sharing and learning.
How do we create, grow, and sustain these spaces?
Workplace culture remains the challenge and the solution. We are realizing a Great Resignation partly due to work from home requirements, which allowed employees time to reflect on their workplace experiences. Now that we know and agree that culture can eat strategy for breakfast, what do we want?
Our work is rooted in human development. People show up as their best self when they understand and gain personal mastery. Peter Senge, author of The Fifth Discipline, explains this concept as the discipline of personal growth and learning. When people and teams expand their capacity for more of what they really want, their energy flows into their work—they are excited by challenges and look to intentionally join their objectives to business goals.
This is clearly a good time for change. What will we do to capitalize on it?
Our motto is by design—together we can, then you will. Let’s realize the win-win. Whether you are an individual contributor or a leader, you have an impact. So, what do you want?
