Business Coaching in Dayton, Ohio by Essex and Associates
Our firm does business coaching and also contracts with several other skilled business coaches to help individuals achieve desired results.
An effective business coach is one that is not only able to facilitate a discussion between the coach, sometimes referred to as the mentor and the one being coached

A good coach will be effective at asking the right questions but more importantly he will hold the one be coaching accountable to achieve the agreed upon goals.

A significant focus of our firm is financial coaching which is a form of coaching that focuses on helping clients attain their financial goals.
At its most basic, financial coaching is a one-on-one relationship in which the coach provides encouragement and holds the client accountable to financial goals.
Of course our firm offers the tools of financial planning as well as tax minimization strategies to maximize the effective ness of this approach.
Financial coaching is rooted in the fact that although many people have financial goal and aspirations, they often struggle to attain them.
Recognizing the array of challenges inherent in behavior change, including all too human tendencies to procrastinate and overemphasize short-term gains over long-term wellbeing, financial coaches monitor clients’ progress over time.
This monitoring function holds clients accountable and will boost clients’ self-control and willpower
Dr. Essex has much experience in the area of conflict coaching.
Conflict coaching is appropriate on many different levels and may be used in an organizational context or in matrimonial and other relationship matters.
Like many other techniques of this nature, it is premised on the view that conflict provides an opportunity to improve relationships, to create mutually satisfactory solutions and attain other positive outcomes when differences arise between and among people.
Our coaching comes from a Christian perspective.
A Christian coach is not a pastor or counselor, (although they may also be credentialed in those disciplines), but rather someone who has been
professionally trained to address specific coaching goals from a distinctively Christian or biblical perspective.
