Do you need a coach?

The job of an HR practitioner is often considered attractive to outsiders or career-seekers, as the focus is on people, working with and understanding them. Once in the job, one can be easily frustrated for a number of reasons, like being targeted by more senior management and made a scapegoat. Other common frustrations include a non-supportive environment, and feelings of being under-utilized. Many HR people then look for newer/greener pastures, while they could be easily tackling the problems head-on in quite creative ways.

Our list of services includes something specifically directed to the HR practitioner: Coaching.
