Grow Your Leadership Effectiveness

With Coaching and Mentoring


What is Coaching?

Coaching is an ongoing conversation focused on personal growth or improvements in professional performance. The goal of coaching is to help resolve present issues or handle specific aspects of the job.

What Is Mentoring?

Mentoring is an association that is mutually designed to support and encourage people in managing their own learning. A goal of mentoring can be that a person develops their potential, skills, and performance to their own satisfaction.

Why Work With Me?

My work with leaders and managers is guided by two thoughts: an unshakable belief in the good and that all aspects of our living have meaning even when not meaningful. I talk with people in this country and in others; people of different experiences, occupations, cultures, race, and beliefs at differing stages of life and pursuit. The joy of this work is meeting people where they are and helping them get where they want to go without being prescriptive but helpful. A particular joy is enabling leaders to more fully come into their influence, gaining new insight and value for their service .

Will Salyards is a ‘Coach’s Coach.’ I value his insights and admire his listening skills. Not only is he genuine, his grace of delivery lifts me to new heights.

Dr. Salyards has been an excellent coach he cause he is honest and gentle, a unique combination. He is able to quickly discern and strike at the heart of the matter but in a way that builds up and encourages. This kind of feedback is refreshing!

I scheduled a coaching session with Dr. Salyards and it was amazing! He was caring and compassionate. Better yet, he encouraged me to step back and reevaluate my passion for this project. I can tell you that in one hour, I rediscovered what I wanted to do this in the first place. If you haven’t already, schedule some time with him. If you have, schedule another.
