Begin with Values 
By Howard Stanten, CPCC, Intus Personal and Gr oup Transformation 
Feeling stuck? When you can't make a decision or feel like you are running inside a hamster wheel, you're stuck and you're in good company. Whether it's a small business owner wanting her life back, a would-be entrepreneur stuck at a dead-end job, or a company looking to scale their business through a lens that sees only burning silos, all three would be wise to work on building their decision making process on what matters most to them; their values.

As an individual, working with a business coach can help you clarify your values and start making business decisions that connect you to a deeper sense of fulfillment.  Inside organizations, business coaches help teams align around a common mission.  This larger-scale values alignment results in decisions that are sustainable because they are created in a spirit of collaboration and shared purpose.

Michael Kline, a local Canfield Certified Trainer (who will be speaking at the LWRBA Executive Briefing in September), has done corporate training for over twenty years says "Traditional corporate training doesn't work and when it does, it doesn't last." He explains that "transformational training, with group and individual coaching to support new concepts over time, makes business transformation possible, effective and sustainable."

What's really important to you? Still foggy? Call a business coach. And, get on with the business of clarifying and then creating what you really want for your business, your company, and your life.
