On-Site Coaching

Visiting Target's location and shadowing coaches is a great way to learn, but sometimes you need a little extra help back in your space to implement what you learn, or you need a new and different perspective for some of your current activities. Whether it is attempting to skill up your coaches, coaching teams, working with leadership, or a variety of other activities, our coaches can assist you with your coaching needs.

Having one or more of Target's experienced coaches available on-site can be rewarding experience for all those involved. Every coaching experience is different and can be customized to your specific requests.

In alignment with our overall philosophy, we typically limit these engagements to about 2 consecutive weeks or less. The reason for this is that we believe in building self-sustaining organizations versus relying on our coaches. During the on-site coaching, we will skill up your coaches, leaders, etc. to handle future coaching needs within your own organization.
