WHY CHOOSE BUSINESS COACHING by WHC DURING A RECESSION?

We led large and small clients through the last recession and we can help you build trust, create value, keep selling and stay open. Plus, we offer cost-effective solutions for any size company ranging from $20 per month to $249 for a package of 30 sessions. 

Since 2006, we have advised and coached large organizations (including Goldman Sachs, Johns Hopkins University, SoundExchange), government agencies (including the Department of Defense, Department of Treasury, Department of Commerce) and thousands of business leaders helping them to implement necessary changes and realize results quickly. Our program is designed to support business leaders who are serious about increasing their revenue, developing a proper growth structure, winning more contracts and better leading and growing staff in good economies or during economic downturns.

We have coached and consulted government agencies, billion dollar organizations, non-profits and business owners across the United States, Africa and Asia. We have been recognized by 2 Mayors, 2 Senators, 1 Governor and various Government agencies for our work with growing businesses and growing the economy.

But most importantly, we care about our clients and we make their success our number one priority, whether they are a billion dollar financial giant, large non-profit or leader of a local startup.
