Great coaches know their best work happens when they understand their clients at a deep, personal level. The FERM coaches work to unlock individuals’ personal motivations to reach beyond the surface and effectively help them understand who they are, how others see them, and ultimately, how they lead and work with others. With this understanding, leaders and employees can contribute more effectively to their teams and exponentially improve performance, leading to the development of better leaders and more efficient teams.
