notesCase study:  Editing Company

Business Objective:   Business development through transitional times.

Services Provided:  Leadership development: One-on-one coaching

Sandy, the principal in a small editing company, faced the challenge of growing her company during a transitional time. Sandy’s major concern about working with an outside consultant was that specific needs of her business would not be understood. However, she reluctantly reached out to Payonk Consulting, LLC in an effort to smooth the company’s transition.

After the first meeting, Sandy’s concerns that a coach was there to tell her how to run her business did not materialize. Instead, she realized that the coach would provide insights on how to augment the business by honing her leadership skills and developing an action plan for success.

An executive coach worked with Sandy for several months. During this time, she embraced the concept of one-on-one coaching.   This concept enhanced her leadership skills, enabling her to stay on track to achieve her business goals.

The resultant change to her management style became obvious to her business community. Her colleagues acknowledged her improved communication which positively translated into business results; deadlines were being met and the client base expanded. A direct increase in profitability was realized.
