LDS challenges traditional coaching. Behaviour is preempted by personalised Engagement, that impacts Performance and Contribution. Behaviour is underlined by each person’s unique human condition and unique circumstances. LDS first honours this uniqueness.
Dissatisfaction, frustration and suffering manifest in disruptive, unproductive and negative behaviour. By the internally address of such behaviours we can bring about improved external personal Engagement, Performance and Contribution in life and in business.
People make companies. People make for company success or failure.
Prudent companies see to the needs, development and potential of their people.
LDS works from cornerstones of Safety, Sacredness and Confidentiality for both Business and Individuals within the Business.
