Being organized and effective at work is a process, not a destination. For that reason, MBG Organizing Solutions offers distance coaching to help clients achieve their productivity goals.
Who benefits from coaching?
There is a difference between being busy versus being effective at work. People who know that something could – and needs to be – better but don’t think they have the time to improve the situation are ideal coaching candidates. With two 50-minute coaching sessions per month for three months, even the busiest person can make dramatic steps to increase effectiveness and reduce stress.
What happens in coaching?
Participants meet by phone with Dr. Melissa Gratias, owner and principal consultant of MBG Organizing Solutions twice a month for three months. Skype/video calls are available upon request. The content of the coaching engagement varies by the needs of the participant, but some frequently addressed topics include:
- Time management – coping with meeting/travel demands, managing tasks and priorities, calendar control
- Information management – email overload, paper organizing and purging, electronic filing systems
- Achieving results through others – delegation to direct reports, performance management, project team management
- Strategic initiatives – goal setting, long-term planning, departmental restructuring
After each coaching session, clients receive follow-up emails with meeting notes and action items clearly outlined. Throughout the course of the program, participants can email Dr. Gratias with questions that need to be addressed prior to the next coaching appointment.
A three month coaching package costs $1,500.
