Organisations Overview

Whether you are a corporation, small business, government department, charity or sporting club, providing support to the people who make it all possible is essential for sustainability, growth and innovation. LIFE provides a suite of professional services to organisations in the area of support which include: consulting, training, counselling, coaching, corporate theatre and community networking.

Consulting, training, counselling and coaching are different support processes for people. Each involves some common elements of care, change and growth. But how these are achieved involves a different process.

Consulting is more about the big picture. It normally involves providing support to changing systems, structures, processes and practices that impact on large groups of people, for instance, in a big organization. Training is a process of learning by instruction. There is normally an expert teacher who will impart knowledge and skills about a specific topic. Counselling and therapy involves diagnosing a problem or illness which stems from unresolved feelings and then helping that person gain resolution. Coaching is a process of learning based on active listening, powerful questioning and implementing actions that is driven by the person who wants to make the changes and supported by a coach who has a vested interest in helping the person realise the changes!

Research and experience shows that caring for people in organisations has many benefits including:
