What Some of Our Clients Have to Say About Dynamite Coaching:  

"My coaching with Mark Marcynuk helped me to explore my motivations and desires to set my goals and have plans to reach them. Mark was able to facilitate my own thought processes in order to identify solutions and actions. He supported me in setting my goals and assessing my progress in relation to these goals. I found him creative during our one-to-one session to turn some difficult situations into more positive ones. I did not find him pushy to commit to actions if I was not ready. The biggest lesson I got from that coaching is unless I have an action plan, my goals were just dreams...." Thanks Mark!

What Goes Around Comes Around 

Please read and enjoy this story.

His name was Fleming and he was a poor Scottish farmer. One day, while trying to eke out a living for his family, he heard a cry for help from a nearby bog. He dropped his tools and ran. There, mired to his waist in mud, was a terrified boy, screaming and struggling to free himself. Farmer Fleming saved the boy from what could have been a slow and terrifying death.

The next day a fancy carriage pulled up to the Scotsman's farm and an elegantly dressed nobleman stepped out and introduced himself as the father of the boy the farmer had saved.

"I want to repay you," said the nobleman. "You saved my son's life."

"No, I can't accept payment for what I did," the farmer replied just as his own son came to the door.

"Is that your son?" the nobleman asked.

"Yes," said the farmer.

"I'll make you a deal. Let me take him and give him a good education. If the boy is anything like his father, he'll grow to be a man you can be proud of."

And that is what he did. In time, the farmer's son graduated from St. Mary's Hospital Medical School in London and went on to become Sir Alexander Fleming, the discoverer of penicillin.

Years afterward, the nobleman's son was stricken with pneumonia and penicillin saved his life. The name of the nobleman was Lord Randolph Churchill and his son was none other than Winston Churchill.

In this story it's obvious to see how the actions of one poor farmer quite literally changed the history of the world - his son discovered Penicillin which ultimately ended up saving the life of Sir Winston Churchill.

And, I wonder if "You," yes you, have any idea of how big of an impact you make in this world? If you ask me, I suspect you don't. In fact most people downplay their importance, or worse yet doubt or question their worth and contribution.

But you do matter and you do make a difference. Maybe you won't discover a lifesaving antibiotic or save the life of a future world leader, or, maybe you will, but you matter and every day you impact the lives of others.

So the next time you hold the door open for someone, offer someone your help, or just do something for someone else out of the goodness of your heart remember that when we help others with genuine kindness, and a want and desire to see them do well, we may never know the benefits that one small act of kindness can create, for one day it could be returned tenfold.

What goes around comes around.

Coach-Like Approach Techniques to Improve Your Communication Skills
Question: Who communicates for a living? Answer: Everybody! If You Live on Planet Earth, You Communicate For a Living.

So how important does it become to have good communication skills? Communication can be the Number #1 determinant to your success; more important than knowledge, academics or experience. No one is saying these other areas aren't important, but if you can't get your message out, how much you know becomes irrelevant. Have you ever had someone say "I'm not sure I understand what you mean" or "been in a conversation where somehow it becomes confrontational and emotionally charged and you're not sure what to do?" How good are you at "dealing with conflict?" 

In fact, reports now show 75% of Fortune 1000 companies are using Coach-Like Approach methodology within their walls to support leaders and staff alike with improved communication.

How well you communicate will directly affect your ultimate level of success or failure in any situation. So I invite you to come and participate in a fun and interactive class where you will learn great tips and techniques on how to bolster your "skills" and fill up your "communication tool box."
