Career Coaching via Video Conferencing

Career Coaching Video ConferencingFor many years, we have worked via video conference with “long distance” clients (or local clients whose circumstances have made it difficult to visit our offices). Our coaching model allows us to work remotely and still provide exceptional levels of connection, quality and impact. We are happy to serve clients from anywhere in the United States and Canada via video conference.

Here are just some of the benefits of doing career coaching via video chat:

Time – clients save time by not having to travel to our offices for coaching sessions
Comfort – clients are often more comfortable working from their own homes or offices
Flexibility – clients experience fewer planning conflicts and more flexibility with scheduling
Convenience – clients who travel for work are still able to attend their coaching appointments by using mobile devices from anywhere

Career coaching via video conference is easy and effective. For more information, please click here.
