Wallace Wilkins, Ph.D. – Scontrino-Powell, Inc

Consultant Wallace Wilkins

PHILOSOPHY STATEMENT

Thank you for reviewing this information about my coaching and training services. For optimal development of individuals, teams and organizations, I offer an integrated, two-pronged strategy:

  1. Reduce or eliminate the negative, workplace conditions that produce stress, conflict, worry, discrimination, low morale, harassment, bullying and anger.
  2. Increase the constructive, workplace attributes that create and maintain productivity, resilience, equity, positive communication, collegial relationships, employee engagement and high achievement.

An initial, personalized assessment identifies strengths, as well as directions for individual and/or team improvement. By creating a unique tracking system, clients can assess their personal and professional advancement daily. Based on a relationship of trust, understanding, support and mutual respect, we collaborate to pursue audacious aspirations to achieve surprising results. I promote the values of equity, inclusion and anti-racism in each engagement.

People boost their success substantially when they master their inner dialog. With guidance and mindful practice, you can eliminate the impact of that harsh, inner critic. You can strengthen your supportive, inner mentor and apply it to yourself and your team. Even during rapid change, you can enjoy high achievements with low-stress and low-conflict. No pain, just gain!
