Business Coaching & Planning

Wendy Johnston has learned, with her 30 years’ experience coaching clients in all aspects of their personal and business lives, to translate this knowledge into effective business coaching skills. Wendy’s strengths lie in listening, her ability to see all sides of a situation and then to suggest solutions that work for everyone. She works with integrity and intuition and pushes for resolution. Her previous employment with the Canadian Medical Association and a major Canadian bank offered many opportunities to work with professional corporations in the medical field and opportunities to assist small business owners. Some of her business projects have included:

•Leading a team reorganizing a private company’s share structure to allow for protection of the major shareholder’s assets and investment while honoring the agreement made with a minor shareholder wanting to leave the corporation.

•Recommending tax advantaged products, investments and solutions for professional corporations

•Assisting a textile designer to reorganize her personal finances and build a business plan so that her dream of a computerized fabric fabrication business replicating her artwork was created.

•Implementing major succession planning strategies in teamwork with the client’s accountant and lawyer.

•Organizing a business start-up taking the business plan from the idea stage to implementation. This project also included set up and installation of staff, fixtures and organizational system for the company.

•Designing and implementing a general insurance risk procedure for a small business.

•Creating a claims procedure, process and follow up system for a general insurance business.

We have worked with Wendy as small business owners for a number of years now and can truthfully say she is an absolute asset not only to how we do and grow our business but also how we as owners have prepared and planned financially and emotionally for our present and future.  Wendy asked all the hard questions when she came to work with our small property management business in Calgary Alberta.  We were down in the trenches growing the business and our time was stretched simply keeping tabs on the day to day.  Wendy gently but firmly guided us to see the bigger picture and helped prepare us for business growth, issues out of our control and eventually to create a succession plan for when we may want to retire.  We are delighted when she arrives for a little “tune up” maintenance session for she always brings a fresh perspective.
