The Key to a Flourishing Career
Companies rely on its key members to perform at their very best; putting a lot of pressure on them to fulfil their all-encompassing roles. With so much weight on their shoulders, these individuals are bound to collapse in one way or the other. This is why constructive mentorship is vital for every thriving business.
Janine Lazarus provides one-on-one coaching including support and guidance to individuals at every stage of the corporate ladder, including general managers, CEOs, professional athletes and anyone who wishes to reach their full potential.
Her role extends beyond mentorship – she is a confidante, colleague and trusted friend, and she walks the journey of life with each and every person she meets.
This mentorship programme provides clients with the necessary support needed to achieve their purpose, personal goals and objectives.
From Survival Mode to Thrive Mode
Well-meaning team work activity conducted outside the office may seem like a lot of fun, but there are those individuals for whom it will be too much of an ask. Forcing employees to take part in an off-site physical activity may not be the magic cure-all to forming a cohesive team.
There is more to team building than a mere physical exercise.
Even though you may have an exact job function or belong to a specific department, you need to be unified with other members of the organisation in order to make a meaningful contribution to its overall success. The bigger picture is one that must drive your actions.
This programme is not intended to restrict individual strengths, but rather place emphasis on ways to derive benefit from the group’s expertise, commitment and energy to achieve mutual goals. In short, this programme supports a culture that enables individuals to contribute more than they ever thought possible – together.
