In small and family businesses, getting all the pieces to work together can be challenging. Sometimes communication breaks down between partners, family members, managers, employees and vendors. These breakdowns can cause tremendous stress for business owners and everyone they come in contact with, which ultimately trickles down to the most important people in your business – your customers. What’s Next can help you and your team learn about effective styles of communication, problem-solving, decision-making, and how to identify colleagues’ styles so you can work together more productively and harmoniously. show more...
Understanding yourself and others from this new perspective will help you to communicate more effectively, lead to less stress in your day-to-day operations and result in more effective performance by managers and team members. What's Next uses the MBTI or DiSC instruments as a basis for individual or team coaching. Using the practices built through these evaluation tools will result in developing a step-by-step plan to implement new business strategies, work practices and team effectiveness.

The overall outcome of Small Business Relationship Coaching is improved communications, better use of your team's talents, more efficient workflow, and a more harmonious environment for everyone who touches your small business. show less

Meet Rachel, age 33, a client at What's Next Coaching and Consulting

"I am an acupuncturist and own and operate my own business practice. I came to Sandy because I was beginning to feel extremely overwhelmed and overworked while at the same time feeling like the growth of my practice was stuck in a holding pattern. While I'm very passionate about acupuncture, the business aspect of running a practice was beginning to weigh on me to the point that I actually started to question if this was what I really wanted to do. At our first meeting Sandy was able to help me recognize my strengths and, based on those strengths, help me understand where I should be focusing my efforts for the most efficient and effective results. After only 4 months of coaching I was more organized, focused, energized and confident. I was actually excited to run my business! I also had my most profitable month to date during that time. Since working with Sandy my business has doubled and continues to grow. I really can't say enough great things about Sandy. I truly believe I wouldn't be where I am today without her!"

"I often find myself working with high net worth, driven and sometimes difficult clients. Sandy provided valuable insight to me on the best way to approach a delicate contract negotiation with just such a client. The confidence I gained from her insight allowed me to negotiate a win-win contract and keep a very valuable client."
