Coaching is a process that helps you clarify your goals and focus on your wants, vision and values in order to produce results more quickly. Working with a coach, you will achieve more than you will achieve on your own by implementing a plan of action. The coach provides tools, support and accountability to help you accomplish more – quickly.
I coach individuals and groups over the phone or in person.
“Betsy Smith is an outstanding coach and mentor. During a career transition, Betsy encouraged me to focus on my strengths and motivated me to take control of my future. She helped me enhance my networking and communication skills with her insightful and inspiring training style. Betsy is a knowledgeable and charismatic leader; I look forward to continuing my career development with her.”
I will speak to a group of 13 or a group of 300. My topics include Leadership Development, Success Through Strengths, Women’s Empowerment, and Working with Volunteers. Looking for a speaker on a different topic, contact me.
“Betsy conducted a luncheon workshop for the Working Women’s Wednesdays series of the Women’s Resource Center. She is an engaging and dynamic speaker. She left the attendees with numerous ways to sell themselves and embrace their greatness! Many of the luncheon attendees contacted the office days after to get a copy of her materials or her contact information. She was a big hit and I would recommend her to anyone seeking a dynamic career and leadership coach or mentor!”
My workshops and seminars are interactive, informational and fun. Topics include leadership development, communication, conflict resolution, strategic planning and success through strengths. I work at the organization or off site.
“Betsy is a masterful trainer, an encouraging champion and one of the most positive people I know. She generously supported me in stepping into a role that stretched me far beyond my comfort zone. She has an engaging, fun way of “bringing out the bold” in leaders. She challenged me to take some big risks for the sake of my growth, and I am so glad she did. With her guidance and unwavering belief in me, I have opened up new career possibilities that seem exactly right for me. Thanks, Betsy!”
Does your company or organization need to work on your strategic plan? When I facilitate a strategic planning session you leave with an understandable plan, accountability measures, timelines and assigned responsibilities. My strategic plans are working plans, not plans to gather dust on the bookshelf and I provide follow up to insure implementation.
“It is a pleasure to recommend Betsy Smith! I worked with Betsy in Leadership Pensacola, United Way of Escambia County and in the formation of the Cordova Rotary Club. She is a true professional, motivator and leader! I have attended strategic planning seminars that she facilitated and she did an excellent job in leading us through the process. I highly recommend Betsy!
