-- Working relationships with direct reports (77%)
-- Working relationships with immediate supervisors (71%)
-- Teamwork (67%)
-- Working relationships with peers (63%)
-- Job satisfaction (61%)
-- Conflict reduction (52%)
-- Organizational commitment (44%)
-- Working relationships with clients (37%)
Popular New Year’s Resolutions:

By focusing on strengths and talents while developing clear values and mission alignment, Tony Husted helps individuals transfer their focus from “what is wrong” to “what is possible” to set free possibilities for growth, enrichment, learning, and change. Unlike traditional “therapy”, Tony Husted’s coaching connects clients in a mutual exploration of possibilities, motivations, values, empowering beliefs, skills, and capabilities to develop ecological goals, action plans, and contingency planning.
Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) is a pioneering modeling strategy rooted in expert communication. Discovered in the early 1970’s by Richard Bandler and John Grinder, NLP was originally based on modeling Virginia Satir: the founder of Family Therapy, Milton Erickson: the greatest Hypnotherapist of all time, Gregory Bateson: a social anthropologist, and Fritz Perls: founder of Gestalt Therapy. The foundation of success for the original four people modeled was exquisite communication skills. NLP’s focus is on what works, modeling the thoughts, actions, and feelings of outstanding performance. Coaching clients benefit from a large toolbox of strategies and interventions developed over 30 years of modeling that artfully allow skill development, capacity building, values and beliefs alignment, identity exploration, and universal connection.
Solution-Focused Coaching (SFC) is a future oriented, strength based model of communication that holds several key presuppositions from NLP into the framework of coaching with a strong future orientation. Rather than focusing on what hasn’t worked in the past, or what is “broken”, SFC holds the following tenants: There is no such thing as failure, only feedback; People always make the best choice available to them at the time; People work perfectly; The meaning of communication is the response you get; Choice is better than no choice; People already have all the resources they need, and that symptoms - aches, pains, anxiety, depression, etc. are communication for needed action.
Appreciative Inquiry (AI) is a change management tool developed by David Cooperrider, PhD in the 1980’s. The main thrust of AI is appreciation of what works and is going well in an organization or individual. Through holding a focus on the positive aspects of a business or an individual’s life, these strengths develop and manifest to a greater level. This is in stark contrast to societal habits focusing on what is wrong, broken, or not going well. Within the life coaching framework AI allows for positive and inspirational sessions that create real results.
