Coaching, Mentoring, and Design Thinking
In our lives we may go through several transitions in work, personal experiences, or in what we simply believe is our purpose. We don't always know exactly who we are, our purpose, or even what journey or path we should explore. A transition can be tough if you are confused, conflicted in thought, and unable to make a decision or go down a new path. The design thinking approach to coaching allows time to discover and reflect while seeking opportunities to assist in moving forward.
Working with your own personal coach or mentor is probably the most effective way to improve personal and professional results in your life. The benefits of coaching are many and include shifting our thoughts and actions from reacting to creating; discovering insights and opportunities.

Depending on your needs, we assign a coach or mentor to work with you for a period of time, generally 6, 9, or 12 months. The HiMac Center coaches and mentors help you to unlock potential and identify methods for moving forward for greater personal and professional growth.
We also engage group idealogy processing with one of our many mindset groups such as the Executive Club which has been instrumental in helping to engage a discussion around various topics to provide feedback and improved professional performance in small businesses.
