* You are a student of many frameworks, methodologies, approaches, concepts, and perhaps, cutting-edge organizational design ideas. Choose from a variety of techniques to help strengthen your team through the chaos.

* Design events and activities to allow the team to experience and thrive in change instead of forcing rigid, unnecessary process and overhead on them.

* Connecting and coaching people to learn more about their teammates and what motivates them.

* Collaborating with fellow coaches to support and learn from each other.

* Bring out the best in others and creates an atmosphere where people are excited to come to work.
