THE DELTA CAFE'
AFFORDABLE GROUP LIFE COACHING ONLINE OR IN PERSON
Six facilitated, judgment-free, group, life-coaching sessions to examine the trajectory of your life and to take a more active role in your success. The name “delta” infers change. The fingerprint symbolizes individual uniqueness. Café represents the social interaction encouraged.
"My son took the classes and learned so much! Rod’s class has helped him understand his strengths and weaknesses and set goals for college and beyond. It has been a great way for Braiden to network with others. It’s a great class for those in their 20s and early 30s." Houston, Texas
Rod Branch has created a genuine, inclusive and not to mention fun and engaging class that allows you to apply what you’ve learned not only personally but professionally. He is able to open your mind to look at ordinary scenarios in a different perspective. We discussed topics such as leadership, how everyone has a sack of stuff on their back every day and we even discovered the key to living your best life! He has provided me with tools that I know will help for years to come. I highly recommend this class!

Live Your Best Work Life Manifesto
1. We believe in the kind of courage where we are afraid to ask an unintelligent question, but we do it anyway.
2. We believe that genuine caring, respect and trust are the foundation of all great relationships and connections, which are the essential elements of leadership.
3. We believe the best learning is discovered in failure.
4. We believe that passionate, thirsty workers are the best kind and who can learn anything.
5. We believe in understanding the cosmic “why” of what we do every day.
6. We believe everyone should have the opportunity to do the work they are best at and they love.
7. We believe working for a great team is preferred regardless of whether the company is great.
8. We believe in doing the right thing, even if the right thing takes longer and is a bit harder.
9. We believe in listening generously until the other person feels heard.
10. We believe in getting at facts even if the “story” is interesting.
11. We believe in looking for a person’s intent behind their behavior, not judging their behavior.
12. We believe we are not the smartest people in the room, nor do we ever want to act as such.
13. We believe everyone is worthy of, and valued for, stating their well-founded opinion.
14. We believe that no one can ever say, “That’s not my job.” We are one heartbeat – no team member left behind.
15. We believe in an innovative business partnership and never saying “no” without a great reason.
16. We believe in asking everyone, “What does support look like from me?”
17. We believe water cooler talk is essential social capital for building relationships.
18. We believe that everyone is in search of significance every day.
19. We believe that inside every person we know is a person we don’t know -- who is just as valuable.
20. We believe that we can have an impact in creating a Great Place to Work!
