Our clients are business owners, executives and technical team leaders. They generally have several direct reports, who often have direct reports of their own.
By working together my staff turn-over has stabilized, my client retention has grown and my company has expanded.
Hi! I’m Laura Watson, founder of Venture Coaching International. Based in Calgary, Alberta, I work with small business owners and executives across N. America. I’m passionate about helping my clients improve their life, business, communication and leadership effectiveness.
I graduated with an MSW from the University of Calgary and received my coaching certification from CoachU and the International Coach Federation. My expertise and commitment to personal mastery was recognized by the Calgary Association of Professional Coaches and the Universal Women’s Network.
30 years ago I started my career counselling individuals and families. Then I decided to launch a coaching practice and build a business. I quickly learned that I lacked business building skills. I struggled and sabotaged myself until I finally dug in and figured it out. I learned how to shape my thinking and master my emotions. And I found the tools I needed to build a successful business.
I took my learnings and developed an approach, and tool kit, for applying business and leadership skills. Combined with my counselling background, my approach looks at the entire personal, business and leadership development journey. It’s designed to identify gaps and resolve issues quickly and efficiently.
To learn about this approach, visit my free stuff page. Download my eBook called, Level Up Your Leadership. It puts the leadership development journey into perspective and describes our Levelling Up process.
If like our approach, book a FREE coaching session. Let’s discuss your situation and develop a custom plan to help you succeed.
