Coaching Approach

Verity specializes in leadership development coaching, applying an approach that identifies and builds upon people’s strengths, rather than concentrating on “fixing weaknesses”. We focus on the key leadership competencies and performance necessary for success within the organizational context. It is our belief that executives are often best coached by those with relevant executive experience, in addition to professional training in executive coaching techniques. 

Our coaching approach is based on personal and collective (organizational) aspirations, goals and performance measures, where the coachee is responsible for his/her own learning and the coach is a resource and advisor. | c. 905.906.3983
