A metaphor for going to a work related Training session is that it is like going to an informative and inspiring lecture on exercise. Coaching after Training is like going to the gym with a ‘personal trainer’ and receiving the one-to-one attention that translates new learning into results!

The combination of these two modalities is powerful and synergistic. The results are consistently better and longer lasting.  On The Threshold’s distinct blend of coaching and training develops clients who are more effective than those who have experienced either modality on its own.

Coaching & Training Programs are available for:



Teams at Work



On The Threshold offers a range of customizable offerings we are happy to discuss with you that include:

1.  Coaching – for Individuals and Teams

  • One-on-one (personal, corporate, executive)
  • Leadership – including 360 leader assessments (the Leadership Circle Profile 360™)
  • Team Coaching (Corporate and Non-profit Organizations) including RSI@Work™
  • Relationship Coaching – for all kinds of partnerships (personal, professional, organizational)

Coaching is offered either in person or by telephone.  In person is available as geography and travel permit. As an excellent alternative option, telephone coaching has proven to be very effective; many of the testimonials on this site are from international clients who were successfully coached by phone. In addition to offering comfort, convenience and cost effectiveness to the client/organization, this method develops a high level of connection between coach and client while spanning virtually any geographical distance.

2.  Coaching/Training Blended Programs

  • Communication with Emotional Intelligence – can include a EI 360™ Assessment
  • Team Development – using The Team Diagnostic Assessment/ The Leadership Circle Culture Survey

Training is most often done in person; however, On The Threshold’s approach to working with clients is often a blend of coaching and training, so training can also be done by phone as well.

What is the impact of Coaching after Training with John?

Partnership for the sake of your success.

I have sat through a number of similar courses and found without coaching, the learnings are rarely retained. By working with a professional coach such as John I have developed some invaluable skills for life. The coaching cements and develops the skills. The coaching sessions have helped me to work on issues that are specific to me. These sessions have progressively helped me grow both personally and professionally. My coach was fantastic. He was engaging, flexible, challenging and understanding.” – A.C., Coaching client
