Using a client-centered approach to identify strengths, set goals, and work towards sustained success.

MLS Consulting approaches coaching from the perspective that every person has a core set of strengths to maximize and a set of limitations that can be addressed through intentional work.  Incorporating assessments when needed, MLS Consulting will work one-on-one with professionals seeking to enhance their leadership potential and individuals searching to better understand what they want to accomplish.  Each coaching client receives undivided attention and a personalized approach in a manner that best suits that person’s existing commitments.  Over the phone or in person, MLS Consulting will coach individuals in a series of one hour sessions, length of commitment to be determined as part of the coaching relationship.
