Would your staff benefit from corporate coaching? Are you looking for development opportunities for your supervisors and managers? Would you like to coach your staff but find that you never have time to follow-up? Do you feel that your staff would benefit from an outside perspective from someone that understands your business objectives but isn't directly involved in daily operations?

Together, we work with individual staff members to outline development areas and set personal goals that are aligned with business objectives. And we provide ongoing support, helping staff achieve their specific goals.

This is ideal for staff that are struggling to be successful within the scope of their responsibilities, or to support rising stars within your business.

Consulting Services

Sharlene Mitchell & Associates can provide guidance and support for a variety of management tasks including: documentation of policies and procedures, recruitment planning, training and onboarding planning, business growth, change management, and crafting of mission, vision and values statements.

Bus Industry Professional Development Days

Organized by job position, these PD Days provide an opportunity for exposure to current trends and up-to-date information from subject matter experts, as well as the chance to interact and build connections with others in the industry. Current offerings include Bus Supervisors’ PD Day and Bus Trainers’ PD Day.

Great, easy to understand training program. I found it very comprehensive yet fun. I learned something, made some memories, and enjoyed an environment based on discussion rather than a PowerPoint presentation.
