Workplace Guidance:
Who, What, and Why

 

Workplace Guidance is spirit-based business coaching. It’s spiritual direction for leaders and leadership teams that helps business and organizations grow into their fullness and live into their potential.

By attending to the guidance of the Spirit, aligning with Divine purposes, and integrating spirituality and faith into their operations, leaders and leadership teams grow their enterprise’s ability to co-create with God. Through this process of spiritual accompaniment, businesses and organizations expand their capacity to achieve true service excellence.

Business and organizational leaders and leadership teams pursue Workplace Guidance for a number of different reasons. They depend upon the type of organization and their current situation.

A few examples include:

  • Established businesses who are looking for new ways to respond to volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity (VUCA)or want to become more sustainable and socially responsible find that Workplace Guidance helps them stay focused on their values and priorities.
  • Christian business owners and leaders who want to better integrate their faith into their decision making and operations gain accountability and support through Workplace Guidance.
  • Entrepreneurs and other leaders of start-up companies who want to create a culture that values spirituality will get the encouragement and tools they need to develop a resilient and innovative organization.
