Saginaw, MI (PRWEB) July 31, 2012
As an executive working with non-profit, volunteer boards for twenty-five years, Sheila Stamiris, Director of Economic Development for Frankenmuth City, Michigan, thought she had all the answers to successfully managing the work of the board.
“What a surprise when I realized that the board and I were meeting for the sake of meeting, and using the same discussions to justify limited results,” she observed.
Instead of allowing the situation to dismay her, the discovery catalyzed a move that resulted in new insights and a solution, Stamiris sought the advice and guidance of local Growth Coach Cal Talley, and his insight helped her take her knowledge base and experience to a new level.
“By helping me to step back and review the most basic elements of the board’s function, Cal’s coaching led me to see that we could redefine our goals, identifying the pertinent and realistic tasks necessary for success and for benchmarking our achievements,” Stamiris continued. “When I proposed this concept to the Board of Directors, I felt a collective sigh of relief. We have identified a simple timeline to prepare for inspired strategic planning in the fall of 2012.”
“At some point in life, everybody can use some help,” says Talley. With more than 20 years of business leadership roles in the energy and utilities industries, this observation led him to open a local franchise of The Growth Coach. He now devotes his time to helping independent business owners, managers, and executives gain clarity, sharpen their focus, face reality, and maintain accountability for their progress. His service area includes Frankenmuth, Freeland, Midland, Saginaw and Bay City in three counties; Midland, Saginaw and Bay.
The Growth Coach is committed to helping people discover better ways to manage their business and life by guiding them through its unique, ongoing Strategic Mindset coaching process. The process helps them adopt a “big picture” mentality by forcing them to strategically map out a course of action to achieve their goals.
Talley, whose previous experience includes the distinction of proven leadership, motivation, objectivity, and organizational skills and expertise, compares his role to that of an athletic coach. “Just as athletes need the leadership of an experienced coach to reach their full potential, business professionals need the objective guidance of a certified business coach to take their professional and personal life to the next level,” explains Talley.
