I am a true believer in Collaborations. Many of my workshops, trainings, and consulting projects have included collaborators who have come on-board as a result of their unique and specific talents and expertise. If after an initial consultation, it would benefit the project, I will introduce my client to a collaborator if that makes sense, given the needs and scope of the project. It might be a co-facilitator for a workshop or training, it might be another coach if more than one employee is involved, it might simply be a subject matter expert (HR Consultant, MI guru, co-facilitator for a Couples Retreat).
My goal is ALWAYS to meet the needs of my client and to employ whatever resources are at my disposal to do so. Collaborator involvement may be recommended from the beginning of the project, or may organically make sense as the project matures.
