    Part 2: CUTV News Radio spotlights Wendy Balman Coaching and Creative Services

    in Business

    Carol Stream, IL – You would be hard-pressed to find a coach that hasn’t been coached themselves. There’s something about the coaching process that inspires people to pay it forward. Perhaps it’s because the core competencies of coaching – active listening, powerful questioning and direct communication – are the same skills we need to succeed as leaders.


    Wendy Balman is the founder of Wendy Balman Coaching and Creative Services where she specializes in one-on-one coaching for entrepreneurs, change agents, and leaders who want to access more of their innate creativity and leadership presence for greater effectiveness, enjoyment, and impact at work and in life. In addition to traditional coaching, Wendy offers training in the core competencies of coaching.


    “Whether at work or at home, we can find ourselves feeling stuck – like we have no good options available. Coaching can expand our awareness of the opportunities open to us,” says Wendy. “I saw that coaching was something I could use to support people to grow their awareness of what’s possible in any given situation and to achieve the desires and goals they have for their life and future. I also saw how the core competencies could be used as a creative and effective approach to leadership and navigating daily opportunities and challenges in the workplace.”


    According to Wendy, the core competencies of coaching are all about communication: designing alliances; creating awareness; designing actions; planning and goal setting; and managing progress and accountability.


    “Like the old adage about not just giving people fish to eat, but teaching them how to fish for longterm benefit, we teach people to fish,” says Wendy.
