Non-profits must maximize their professional and volunteer staff capacity by ensuring that those involved in operating the organization have the necessary knowledge, skills and attitudes to effectively achieve the desired results. Results-based training and coaching are consultative services delivered to clients aimed at meeting unique agency goals and objectives. Coaching can be especially useful to help individuals, groups and organizations to address complex problems and/or achieve significant goals and to do so in a highly individualized fashion, while learning at the same time.

Taking action toward reaching their goals
Setting realistic and relevant goals for themselves, based on their needs and strengths
Learning by reflecting on their actions along the way
