Trained and certified LMJA coaches can provide assistance to take your career to the next level. Our coaches can help improve leadership skills, technical capabilities, tackle challenges and help you get that next promotion! We partner with you in an encouraging environment where comfort is critical to a successful and rewarding experience.


Our coaches are certified by the International Coaching Federation.

Our clients work more productively and become greater contributors to organizations.

Return On Investment

What can you expect as a result of coaching? The Harvard Institute of Coaching indicates that 80% of people who receive coaching increased their self-confidence. They also report that 70% benefit from improved work performance. And maybe even more telling, 86% of companies reported that they recouped their investment in coaching.
