One-on-One Career Coaching & Strategy
At Daisy Swan & Associates, most of our coaching relationships are in the form of one-on-one career coaching services and strategy. Our typical one-on-one coaching clients come to us a little overwhelmed – either by life in general, career options or lack thereof, or the job search process – looking for unbiased, third-party, professional help in gaining clarity and focus to get them to the next level, or to set them on a new or clearer path.
Our first step in one-on-one coaching is setting that new goal or clearing the new path for our clients, often helping them to see opportunities or options that they may not have even thought of or uncovered on their own. Once we have that first task accomplished, our career coaches move on to the practical part of implementing a plan. This plan may be the job search process and all that might entail, or it may be that a client decides to pursue more schooling – in which case, we can help with the application process and selection of schools or programs of study, as well. Our career coaching services will help with whatever is necessary to achieve the desired coaching results, and we will stay in a coaching relationship with our clients for as long as they desire or need us to do so.
Coaching begins with our clients’ completion of an assessment that analyzes their strengths, that shows us (and them) their natural gifts and talents, and where they shine. We go through the results of this assessment and start to create a new plan with our clients in an initial two-hour meeting, either in person or over the phone. The coaching process then moves forward with phone meetings three times per month, for 40 to 45 minutes each call. There is some “homework” that clients will need to complete within the coaching process, and we hold them accountable to do what we have mutually agreed to in order to reach the desired and new results set forth at the start of the process.
For more information or to get going with one-on-one coaching, please call 1-877-872-3929 or email email@example.com. And don’t forget to ask about our sliding scale and other flexible payment options!
Group Career Coaching
Daisy Swan & Associates also offers group career coaching options. We gear our various career coaching groups to different LifeStages or different life or career situations. For example, we often run groups for Beginning LifeStage clients, or for those looking to become – or who already are – entrepreneurs or consultants. One of our most popular groups simply works through the whole job search process, covering resumes, interviews, networking, and anything else that goes along with a job search.
Our groups are kept relatively small in order to maximize personal attention to each group member, but the very format of the coaching groups provides an ideal environment for those who need some accountability, support from others in similar situations, and the guidance of a professional career coach. The groups also provide a natural source for networking opportunities, and give those who feel isolated in their careers, jobs or situations, that inter-personal contact that fulfills them.
Our career coaching groups are also a good way to get a feel for Daisy Swan & Associates, our coaches, our methodology and culture. Our clients sometimes start out with group career coaching, and then roll over to one-on-one coaching. Or, we can put together a package that will have clients doing some one-on-one coaching simultaneous to group career coaching.
Executive Coaching & Organizational Development
There are few investments you can make in your managers and employees that will be of greater value than providing them with leadership training and team development skills with an experienced executive life coach. At Daisy Swan & Associates, our Executive Coaching focuses on the knowledge and skills needed to engage others, create change, and achieve greater results from your working relationships.

Please explore the following programs to discover which service best reflects your needs:
- Team Development
- Organizational Planning & Design
We Make It Relevant
Every organization is different. We don’t believe in giving you the same presentation we give to our other clients. We customize executive and developmental coaching programs to reflect your organization’s unique character, taking your challenges, goals, interests and desired results into account, making your workshops more relevant to and practical for your employees.
Our programs are not designed to end when the coaching initiative comes to a close. It’s in our best interest to make sure your employees can use what they learn over the long term. We offer continuous learning and coaching, follow up assessments, and tailor made courses to make sure that the principles we teach remain with participants over time.
At Daisy Swan & Associates, we’re here to help. The sooner we can begin assisting your organization with our executive life coaching or organizational developmental workshops and services, the sooner you will begin to see bottom line results. We look forward to discussing our programs, ideas, and experience with you.
Team development is something that every organization encourages and verbally supports, but it doesn’t always receive sufficient attention and dedication. It often requires assistance from an external resource to be able to critically analyze and identify the needs and areas for more effective team development and performance.
At Daisy Swan & Associates, we research and work with teams to identify the key areas for the continuous process of team development inside organizations.

Whether you are a small business looking to create a more streamlined and innovative organization, or a large organization in the process of completing a merger or acquisition, Organizational Planning and Design can help your organization make calculated moves to the next level.
