Coaching Services

“The product of self-worth is knowing that you still bring value, no matter what your position is in the company.”

What does it mean to be coached?

Coaching is an effective process that improves individual and team performance. The result of consistent coaching moves you from where you are now to where you want to be in just about any area. 

As someone who focuses on both employers and job seekers, I understand the challenges that both parties face when it comes to hiring and job searching. This unique perspective allows me to provide coaching services that are tailored to the needs of both groups, helping employers and employees to achieve their goals more effectively.

For Companies / Organizations: I provide insight into the job seeker’s or employee’s perspective. By understanding what job seekers/ employees are looking for in a job and what motivates them, I deliver crafted training that is more appealing and to develop strategies that are more efficient and effective.

For Employees: I provide guidance on how to stand out and to present yourself in the best possible light to potential employers. By understanding what employers are looking for and what makes a candidate / employee stand out, I can embolden you to either develop what you have to offer or to make a strong impression.

Do you or does your organization need a coach?

No. However, no matter what profession you are in, everyone has areas where they can improve. That’s where coaching comes in – it provides tailored guidance to enhance individuals and teams identify their strengths and blind spots, and develop the confidence to succeed in their professional life.

I have gained a unique perspective on what makes a company successful, both from standpoint of an employee and from what a employer desires.  Drawing on my personal experience from traveling and working within different organizational structures, I offer insights that can lead clients to a more positive and productive work environment.

How can coaching help?

Develop skills and knowledge need to excel in their roles. This can include technical skills specific to the job, as well as soft skills such as communication and problem-solving. By providing career seekers or employees with the support they need to develop these skills, they are better equipped to perform at a high level, which can benefit the employer by increasing productivity and reducing errors.

Help to identify the strengths and weaknesses. By providing targeted coaching to employees (jobseekers included), employers can help them to develop the skills they need to perform at a higher level, which can benefit both the employee and the employer.

Improve communication and collaboration. By providing coaching to both parties  employee and employer, you can develop a better understanding of each other’s needs and perspectives, which can lead to more effective teamwork and better performance overall.

Create a culture of continuous learning and improvement. By providing coaching on an ongoing basis,  you can stay up-to-date with the latest developments in your field and continuously improve skills and knowledge. This can optimize a more innovative and dynamic workforce, which can benefit both the career seeker, employees, and the employer.

I reached out to LaPora for some 1-1 coaching as I started up a new business. LaPora is a fantastic listener and is really empathetic. I felt heard by her, and suddenly the things I struggled with started to feel more manageable. I was able to see my challenge in a different light and come up with a solution that worked for me. She was a great guide in this process. If you are working through challenges in your career or a difficult transition, I would highly recommend you reach out to LaPora.

Thanks to LaPora, I've transitioned out of a career field that wasn't serving me into a new and more fruitful one. She's a motivator through and through. If you ask for feedback, expect honest but true sentiments! LaPora is a goal mine and anyone lucky enough to work with her is going to leave their sessions better than before knowing her.

Who better understands a Military Spouse but another Military Spouse. I found myself between careers and trying to redefine my way forward. This is where LaPora Lindsey comes in. She reached out to me, asked me some key questions, and coached me in her unique style. Her conversational approach put me at ease and gave me so much insight to my strengths and opportunities. Because of her guidance and editorial skillset, I was able to assemble my bio and speaker sheet. As a Military Spouse and Professional, I highly recommend LaPora Lindsey for coaching and resume writing. Thank you, LaPora; I appreciate you!

After being turned  years of shifting to different organizations due to my life as military spouse, I started to see common themes in effective ways to grow teams. Since then, I’ve helped individuals and teams struggling to find methods that work.

One of the common themes I have noticed is that many times employees sell themselves short because they dont believe they are inadequate or ready “yet.” Spoiler alert, we will never be ready and everyone has value. Sometimes it’s a matter of how that is expressed. 

When you have self-worth, you know you have value it shows in everything you do, including your work. It’s time every position highlights how they can bring value to mission. Because every time you sell yourself short, it’s costing the team,  time and money.

One last thing...

 

I offer this service because my negative mindset affected what I did in my career many times. As a result, my low self-worth allowed previous rejections and disregards to create the feeling of being discounted in the workplace. I compared my career to others and limited myself. But, I have educated myself to adjust and change my mindset to value all of my abilities, no matter where my career may lead me. Increasing my self-worth has been a driving force in workplace performance. Self-worth  improve life for my family.

If you are reading this, you may have a similar story. You or your teammates may feel like that can’t make the team any better, there are too many issues, too much , conflict, too many people not listening.  But each of  you  have the power to create an impact. What you do with that power is up to you.

If you are struggling to increase workplace performance, retention, and mitigate workplace conflicts, it’s time to make some changes with some training and coaching.  

My unique perspective as a coach who focuses on both employers and job seekers / employees allows me to provide valuable insights and advice to both parties, enhancing your approach to achieve your goals. If you’re looking for a coach who can help you navigate from either side of the table, I’m here.
