Engaged, communicative, respectful workplaces brim with creativity, efficiency, and loyalty.
CoAct Consulting exists to work with employers and employees on building essential skills for success: how to listen to, respect, and understand one another. It sounds so simple, but in our complex and diverse world, without realizing it workplaces can unwittingly devolve into high-pressure, low-tolerance environments that prioritize results above all else. Companies forget that they are built and run by people, individuals with unique worldviews and specific needs. And when those needs are met – making employees feel appreciated and valued – they work harder, stay with companies longer, and contribute to a productive, efficient, healthy working environment.
CoAct Consulting offers custom-built training and coaching packages to both public and private sector organizations. With experience training on topics such as; creating inclusive environments, Situational Leadership II®, unconscious bias, and diversity in service, we bring a broad range of subject-specific expertise and understanding to the table.
Let’s partner to create a equitable, inclusive, thriving workplace.
Using an asset-based partnering approach, we help people match their impacts with their actions.
We approach every situation with respect for the person/people and the process.
We help to provide context and clarity for our clients to clear the fog and allow people to see the way forward.
Because change isn’t possible without movement, we lead with action.
