Both coaching and mentoring are skills of good leaders. However, while mentoring is more long-term and can be forgiving in the sense that the mentor serves as both a guide and trainer, the requirements of coaching are more immediate and critical with the coach being less attached while requiring the team to perform at their higher level of effectiveness.
TalkShop, the training institute for communication excellence and personal effectiveness has become the choice of top institutions in molding their key executives and leaders to become excellent coaches.
Communication guru and leadership coach Sheila Viesca leads her team in consistently innovating targeted coaching programs. She said, “We have been doing this for fourteen years with the understanding that coaching requires a holistic approach to understanding people.”
TalkShop is the only ISO-certified, Civil-Service accredited training institute. Viesca adds, “It’s all about the customer. The direction of organizations is to make their leaders wiser in making their teams perform better with complementing training on advanced leadership, problem solving, decision making, people relations, critical thinking, stress and time management, meeting handling, among other areas of personal effectiveness. We are here to ensure that their direction is paved with all the right programs.”

TalkShop is a school that helps transform people, open opportunities, and improve performance. Good job! I’ve learned many things and pointers that I will be using in future presentations and interactions with colleagues. I like the coaching workshop most since it will help me in my new position in school. Sheila Viesca and her team are very good. Hmmm…. maybe better than that – EXCELLENT! Indeed, I gained confidence when facing people. I know that change will come from my own will – TalkShop has made the process more efficient – I’m getting there!
