Develop Action Plans and Solutions
Dr. Brendel uses a wide range of effective coaching strategies with clients. One of these approaches is Active Inquiry, in which he asks the client a series of thought-provoking and transformative questions. When you reflect upon and respond to these questions, you realize the inner strengths and assets that you have to find solutions and move forward in your career. Powerful coaching conversations empower you to develop strong, practical action plans for successful career development.
