Who are We?
At Soaring Eagles Business Advisors, we decided to use the term Advisors since Coach is over used. Not many coaches coach by listening to the Holy Spirit for guidance and direction on what powerful questions to ask the coachee. The questions we ask help you to come to a clear conclusion on what your next steps will be. We then come alongside you and your business to help you take ACTION!
Soaring Eagles Business Advisors was started in 2011 to help businesses gain clarity on their vision, mission, and values. Once they are clear, we help them to incorporate their vision, mission, and values into the business culture. Soaring Eagles was started after the principal and owner became a Certified Professional Business Coach through Professional Business Coaches Alliance (PBCA). He then went on to achieve Advanced Certification with the PBCA.
We also train leaders and your next generations of leaders how to use coaching to engage with their team. This helps them team to connect with the business culture and be part of the solution not the problem.
