Launching the first corporate coaching company in 1993, DJ and Barry Mitsch have led thousands of Team coaching programs, and trained close to 1,000 coaches throughout the world to deliver this signature program. Hired by a broadcast CEO to help set strategy in early 1995 , DJ developed the first extraordinary team coaching experience supporting a news and sports network organization with extraordinary outcomes - $2MM additional dollars to their bottom line, securing a piece of equipment for their network affiliates that had been back ordered for two years, and creating a new strategy that would elevate profitability and energize their workforce… all within 4 months. The leader called her coaching program the Extraordinary Game! The program has seen several improvements and iterations over the years, retitled the Team Advantage in 2008 and now coaches throughout the world have learned to deliver and trust the process, while expanding their coaching skills to focus on team dynamics, leadership capabilities, conflict resolution and the notion to celebrate even small wins.
