One-on One Training / Conflict Coaching

This is ideal for people who want something that is flexible and practical. Usually I work with people who are struggling with a specific issue or how to work with/for another person. I am located in Kingston, but work with people all over the World over the phone and using skype. The format is flexible but typically involves a 1 hour call each week for 4 weeks. We can also work around both our schedules, so that the call or meeting need not be at the same time each week. Learn More about One-on One Training / Conflict Coaching
