We're currently making this site awesome! Some visual aspects and existing links are not presently available. If you are a coach, counselor, facilitator, engineer, doctor - a professional - then this site is for you so return soon.
Vision: To be the leading globally minded, locally relevant business partner to experts, particularly in the professional services/helping industry.Welcome professional! We are here for three reasons. We facilitate advancing your knowledge and expertise in theory and practice. We put the necessary structures and functionality in place for communicating, branding and selectively marketing your professional ID. We offer the necessary solutions for effective professional life and practice management (whether legal related aspects, financial planning, risk assessment, office automation and more). You should do what you do best and although there are things you simply have to do, that's what we're here for.
Our value model is simple and robust: We design, acquire, or network around critical resources that ultimately makes you as individual or the professional governing body overseeing your professional skills successful. We then offer that back to the Signo Professional Community at the respective membership levels.
Mission: Nurture expertise, develop brand and professional ID, assist in management and good governance to sustain extend the reach and efficiency of professional people.
In addition to working closely with professional governing bodies (for coaching, OD, management, counseling and others) we offer a space for a select few approaches as a professional skills body ourselves: collaborative practitioners, narrative coaches (and counselors), professional facilitators.We also facilitate 'credibility migration': You've been a counselor for some time but clearly your approach is relevant to coaching and organisations also. We can help.
We think innovatively about descriptions such as management and leadership. In most cases, we don't see these as hierarchical but we do see it as specific roles in which one can improve. For instance, many managers are promoted to be a manager when the reality is that they were rather noticed for their technical capability and accomplishment rather that for their ability to deal in a mature way with people around the work that needs to get done.
With this said, please note that we do not take on 'jobs' ourselves. We are rather here to pass on the jobs to those we trust that partner with us and become members or even certified collaborative practitioners. We are about raising the level of quality and professionalism beyond the fluff that usually and superficially communicates professionalism.
Ultimately we advance the brand and the implications of what it means to be a Signo Professional so that a company, a family, a team knows and trusts those who are acknowledged by the community as Signo Professionals.
Signo, the mark of professional!
