Projects

Dr. Patrick Williams, Ed.D, MCC, is the visionary and leader of our team of world-class coaches and consultants’ team. We partner with non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and nonprofit social agencies to incorporate coaching skills into their work to reach target outcomes. The coach approach can be leveraged by NGOs to draw out the wisdom and motivation of their clients and employees. NGOs currently using coaching have a better understanding of their clients and can position themselves as experts in their field. This human capital is the source of leadership that will sustain change efforts long after the project cycle has completed. Our partners across the globe are using coaching to generate innovative solutions in partnership with the communities they serve.
