At The Banyan Group, we recognize we are not the total answer. While we are well educated, well prepared and bring lots of experience to the table, we also have a limited amount of time to spend with clients, and a skill-set that may not meet every need. Our clients don't stop seeking answers just because our session ends. Information, inspiration and creativity are an important part of the process, and these elements often come later, as you think through what we've shared together, processing your thoughts on your own. To this end we aim to offer excellent resources to augment our work, whether in therapy, coaching or consultation. For some of the larger, more complex subjects we offer courses in our Online Learning Portal that address specific subjects in an interactive environment. But many times a short video presentation, a book excerpt, or an audio clip can make all the difference, pointing out what we've been saying in another way, shedding light on the issue in a whole new perspective. On this page we keep links to relevant standalone resources we can point our clients to. This page changes frequently as new titles are added and older ones are removed, so we encourage you to check here often for new items of interest that are relevant to your situation.
Positive Change: Sometimes those words seem like two opposites, strangely connected in a random phrase. For many people, change is not the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of positive things. For many people, families and organizations change is not positive, because it brings discomfort, discord, dysfunction and division. We know it doesn’t have to be that way. And we instinctively believe there must be a way to manage change that brings us to a place of agreement, comfort and unity. But finding that way can be a daunting task.
The Banyan Group is a private, independently organized non-profit practice, dedicated to counseling, coaching and consulting, always with a view to managing change in such a way as to bring positive, helpful and hopeful results.
Perhaps you're visiting our website as part of a search for help in your personal life; or for direction in your career; or maybe as part of a search for help answering some particular questions about the structure, leadership or management of your church or non-profit organization. The Banyan Group provides resources from a wide range of experience and expertise, seeking to add value to what you are already doing in any or all of these areas. We believe in being helpers, not in "reinventing the wheel.” We seek to help our clients discover the missing piece, whether by counseling, coaching or consultation, to get their life, their career or their organization to a place of positive change.
We invite you to explore our site and learn more about the services we offer. As you seek assistance, it is important that you are always well informed and an active participant in your journey toward positive change. We welcome questions and invite you to contact us about the process and our work together.
