The firm of Shauna Lee Lange is preparing to increase their practice without having to conduct heavy marketing campaigns. Garry Schleifer will advise the firm’s founder with insights and experience on how to build credibility while growing a practice through speaking, writing and workshops. Schleifer, PCC, CMC, President of choice-coach, and Owner and Publisher of choice Magazine (the magazine of professional coaching http://ca.linkedin.com/in/garryschleiferwww.choice-online.com) will be presenting “Speaking, Writing and Workshops to Build Your Practice”.
Schleifer is a business development coach specializing in working with primarily women entrepreneurs. With over 23 years of entrepreneurial business experience, he is a seasoned businessman and brings a wealth of skill to his coaching. He applies a signature approach of “Ruthless Compassion” when helping business owners. This technique recognizes that challenging goals must be set and rigorously adhered to – but always with an innate sensitivity, good humour and non-judgement.
Schleifer’s ”walk the talk” credentials draw from long experience as the visionary behind several multimillion-dollar corporations. In 1988, he built Synoptic Logistics Management – a distributor of point-of-sale marketing materials for corporations – from concept into a business with $3.5 million in annual revenue. Then in 1996, he planned and managed the merger of Synoptic with a competitor, becoming President of Dyment Distribution Services, the 100-employee post-merger organization.
Schleifer’s coaching practice includes client engagements with Sysco Food Services Canada, Drake International, Dupar Controls, Street Haven Women’s Shelter and the United Nations World Food Program. He earned his Certified Professional Co-Active Coach (CPCC) credentials at Coaches Training Institute, one of the world’s foremost coach training and certification organizations. He is also a Professional Certified Coach (PCC), as designated by the International Coach Federation (ICF). As owner and publisher of choice, Schleifer produces the magazine of professional coaching, (www.choice-online.com), distributed quarterly to subscribers in 28 countries. Schleifer is Past President of the Toronto ICF Chapter, was Vice President on the ICF Global Board, and has served on several, community-based boards or organizations.
