Spark Language Coaching can help work teams increase their productivity and effectiveness through building stronger communication skills, intercultural awareness and confidence. As a coach and consultant, Sara has the ability to support employees and management with their training and development needs.
Clear and effective communication in a workplace is crucial for a business or organization's success, and problematic communication challenges can impact staff morale, engagement and productivity. Many people who speak English as an additional language report that even after years of living and working in Canada, they still feel frustrated and nervous in certain situations, such as giving presentations, making small talk with customers and colleagues, or receiving feedback from team leaders and supervisors.
Coaching and Communication Workshops
Spark Language Coaching offers customized individual coaching and small group workshops to support business owners, managers, and other staff members who speak English as a second or additional language (ESL/EAL) to develop their professional oral and written communication skills, soft skills, and intercultural communication skills for workplace success. Coaching sessions and workshops focus on action planning based on clients' real-life, real-time communication issues and situations, which leads to effective skill-building, higher productivity and stronger employee engagement and team effectiveness (ICF Global Coaching Client Study Executive Summary, 2009).
Sessions and workshops are tailored to meet the specific needs, timeline and schedule of your individual staff member or group, and can be delivered at the work site, off-site, by phone or online via Skype.
