We look at the present and focus on how things are before visualizing how they might be. Using a collaborative approach, we search for discoveries of a personal and organizational nature. Unlike many coaches, we also offer advice and propose potential solutions for clients.
Our clients are those who avoid complacency at all cost. It has been said that learning never ends and “the important things are those you learn after you know it all.”*
Great leaders understand this. Success is not in arriving at a destination, but rather in the journey. We help leaders to take difficult journeys that ultimately are the most gratifying and illuminating.
We can help executives develop in the areas of leadership, personal growth, organizational development, recruiting strategy, and corporate culture building. Our clients are people and organizations that have experienced successes and failures and have learned that awareness, thought, action, and practice are the ways to build a fulfilling, prosperous future.
* John Wooden
Effective leaders all have many attributes in common but those attributes are applied in very different ways. However, all great leaders make certain that their groups have direction and can articulate that direction clearly. We help leaders to discover the traits that are their natural strengths and to build on them. We heighten awareness through effective exploration, employing relevant developmental exercises to help the clients maximize their potential.
We help executives to be effective through accountable partnering. With the executive, we look at his or her current approaches to management and focus on what is working now, what has worked in the past, and then design approaches that will lead to greater success in the future. Executing is different than leading — we offer advice based on our experience with managers at all levels in an organization. We also coach executives to focus on what they want to do to create their most engaged workforce.
Thirty years of human resource experience have given us the experience to help others to find their calling. At Canavan and Reid we help people discover what they want to do and collaborate with them to develop strategies to engage in that calling. We can advise on every aspect of a career search including discovery, job search strategy, tactics, interviewing, salary negotiation, and the final decision.
We understand the great value of an exceptional Human Resources department. Working with professionals on a global scale has given us the confidence to work with, and improve, any HR team. We take the time to analyze current programs and offer practical improvements, while being mindful of all state and federal regulations. Specific training sessions are available which will relate to your company’s unique HR programs. Work with us at your own pace, with instructions that are easy to follow. We recognize that companies are always evolving, and we are prepared to evolve with them, by improvising, and providing multiple solutions to problems. Our company has developed many strong, trustworthy relationships with clients, and we are always looking to establish more.
