I finally had a chance to meet with Sherry Jordan of Northwest Coaching Group, after having heard her speak at an industry meeting a few months ago. Sherry's office is located in SW Portland and she works with business owners to create business plan to propel a business to the next level. The day I met with Sherry, I was feeling anxious regarding a few up coming decisions I needed to make. So, our meeting started out with me explaining about my business, how I started and then we went into the issues I was dealing with. Sherry did not waste any time getting me to open up and asking questions like “what is the one thing you need right now?” My answer was, “more time.” Sherry asked a few more questions and in my answers came the direction I needed to take to get more time. From there, Sherry helped me set some black and white rules for myself, just a few but rules that are going to make a huge difference in my profit. Increasing my profit margin means adding on another staff member which would help with my time issue. It was wonderful to have someone understand where I was coming from and give me very real, tangible advice and direction. When I left, I had 4 things that once implemented, I would have more time. If you are like me and get caught up in the many hats you wear as a business owner, it's good to have someone who can reign you in and help you to focus on the next step. Sherry was that for me. At the following staff meeting I had with my team, I discussed what I had learned in my first meeting with Sherry and we discussed how we would implement it as a business. I can see that continuing down this path is a way to make small changes add up to large shifts.
What clarity Northwest Coaching Group brought into my business. Before I had ever sat down with Sherry Jordan one on one, I had attended one of her workshops. She was teaching about the nuts and bolts of strategic partnerships and how they contribute to a business growth plan. It was amazing how relatable and insightful Sherry was. I walked away feeling as though I had something real and concrete I could take back to my business and apply today. Also, I felt that I had the steps to put into the practice the concepts she discussed. I had to meet with her again and get specific to my business. As we started discussing my specific business, my specific challenges, Sherry Jordan provided me the answers and plan to execute. The depth of her experience in business operations and coaching is vast. She had a solution for everything! With the small tweaks, suggestions, and innovations Sherry has coached me onto a more successful plan to achieve my goals. Northwest Coaching Group is definitely a solid rock in the mix of consultants out there. I have used Sherry Jordan before through the company I work for and was happy. Lately I had been really feeling a bit stagnant with my career trajectory so I met with her again. What a different a couple hours with Sherry made. When she says she is a business coach & career counselor boy does she mean it. Her kind of knowledge only comes with experience of successfully helping many folks find the right career path. It really shows. She was really able to help me clarify how to look for opportunities inside my organization and prepare for them. She helped me to identify the skills I needed to develop and to offer me resources to assist in that development. As well as help me draw a clear picture my long term goal and really design the steps along the way to get to where I want to go. Whether you are a successful business wanting to take it to the next level, or a professional wanting to evolve, Sherry has the ability to guide you to your goals.
04/27/2013Remmen Auction & Estate Sale
remmen has a good variety of items, however, they could be more knowledgeable about the items. sometimes things are misrepresented, not purposely, but due to lack of knowledge. they have good, helpful and friendly staff. auctions are a lot of fun. need to really look over items prior to bidding and not overbid. I always have a great time and buy quite a few items. have referred many people to their auctions.
I have been using NW Coaching Group for business coaching for many years. When I first started going to career coaching, we were working out of home with only one or two employees. We started out with a business plan put together with the help of our coach, Sherry Jordan. Each year we wrote up a plan which scared the heck out of us, but we met or exceeded the plan each time and are now in a shop with 16 employees and have more than quadrupled our sales. Words cannot express how grateful I am for the all the excellent guidance and words of wisdom that Sherry has shared with us. We just finished up a long range plan and I’m more excited than ever to see where my company is headed. I give NW Coaching Group my super highest recommendation to anyone seeking career counseling, business coaching, life coaching or counseling.
Sherry Jordan is an amazing resource. I've run my own business since 1994. Over those years, I've been given all sorts of advice. I've attended countless workshops, seminars, and conferences about growing my business. None of those have been as valuable as my business planning time with Sherry Jordan. She has been my Business Coach for about 3 years now. In that time, my growth has been focused and strong. I know I would have eventually reached my goals on my own, but having Sherry as a guide has made that journey much easier and more efficient. Sherry has a great sense for looking at a business from the outside, and distilling the challenges into something recognizable. Once I know what the real problem is, Sherry will help me create a task list with my next steps.I would highly recommend Sherry Jordan at Northwest Coaching Group to any Business Owner.
