Coaching in the workplace

People are happiest when they feel appreciated. This applies to all situations and relationships, especially in the workplace. When an employee feels that they are valued, they perform better and are more reliable.

So, you might move towards becoming fit or achieving financial freedom, and move away from being unhealthy or poor. (more…)
