What is your approach?

We bring a holistic perspective to our work, with a focus on adapting environments, processes, tasks and thinking to facilitate people to do the things they want and need to do to be successful at work and in life.

What's the difference between individual and business coaching?

Employees of businesses receive similar coaching as individuals. The only exception is our business packages provide one year of coaching for a specified amount of employees.

How does coaching work?

You take an online assessment that identifies your individual strengths and weaknesses in key behavioral areas. We then conduct a 45-minute follow-up session in which we discuss the results of the assessment and begin to identify key areas for goal-setting.  

Additional 45-minute coaching sessions may result in additional assessments, setting primary goals, creating actionable plans and accountability, and environment or task modifications.  

How does the employer fit in with employee coaching?

The employer's employee manager receives an initial and quarterly performance outcome reports that addresses the common workplace problems of absenteeism, presenteeism, turnover, productivity, competitiveness, and health/wellbeing.  

We also collaborate monthly to conclude recommendations for additional strategies and skill-building workshops.

Where does coaching take place?

Our coaches are based in California, Michigan and New York, and are available to work with clients on-site or via telephone, video chat or video conference services.

How do I know you are legit?

We are an assembled team of practitioners with master’s and PhD level degrees in occupational therapy (OT) and design. Additionally, we have significant experience in the areas of human resources, wellness, performance coaching, and design thinking.  All coaches are state licensed, certified by the National Board of OT, and possess additional certifications within their areas of specialty. Yeah, we have far more accreditation then a 2-week to six month certification that most of our competitors have.

What is OT?

Occupational Therapy is the only profession that helps people across the lifespan to do the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of daily activities (occupations). Occupational therapy practitioners enable people of all ages to live life to its fullest by helping them promote health, and prevent—or live better with—injury, illness, or disability.

How does performance coaching differ from other coaches?

Performance Coaching involves facilitating people to overcome any challenge. Performance coaches reframe action in areas they want to change. They guide them through the process and play the important roles of motivator, strategist and accountability partner.

What don't you do?

We are not dietitians, personal trainers, or interior designers. However, our foundational field of education is science. We maintain staying informed on physiological, mental, and health studies -  including the impact from our natural and built environments. In fact, occupational therapy practitioners are the sole profession devoted to sensory modulation and regulation techniques.

What else might be helpful to know about?

We customize employer packages, provide workplace seminars upon request, and occasionally offer webinars.
