Coaching

Coaching is one of the most powerful tools for helping people to change. It enhances buy in, helps to consolidate learning and can provide higher levels of motivation and resulting action for individuals.

Coaching can be used to help with specific areas like Presentation Skills, right through to coaching for life where the individual is helped to establish what they are really looking to achieve in life and what road to take to get there.

Unfortunately in most cases coaching is underutilised in the work place, as either we do not have access to a coach or, where we do, often the respect or trust is missing.

How we can help

With a handpicked number of coaches to call upon each with differing skills we are able to match the right coach to individual styles.

As a further service we are also able to train people to be coaches thus taking the benefits of coaching in-house.

 

Coaching for Life

What is Coaching for life?

This is centred around the individual and helps them focus on getting direction and balance in their lives.

What are the benefits of Coaching for life?
To the individual - Coaching for life can help to crystallise life goals and what is needed to achieve them. It can also help to highlight life imbalances and obstacles and therefore help the individual to start to remove them.
To the business - the better life work balance and enhanced clarity of direction should result in higher levels of motivation and productivity. Reduction in stress, illness and staff turnover are also other potential benefits.

Method:- Initially face to face.
Regular face to face meetings would be required initially to build up trust & understanding. In the longer term the frequency of meetings can reduce and the telephone can provide an alternative.

Duration : Ideally for life.
We would initially recommend a minimum of 4 sessions over four months lasting for a maximum 2 hours. Over the longer term 3 to 4 sessions a year would be sufficient.

 

Career Coaching

What is Career Coaching?

Career Coaching focuses on an individual from a work perspective with the discussion based around what needs to be done to improve results in work settings.

What are the benefits of Career Coaching?
To the individual - Weaknesses can be reviewed and progress monitored.
To the business - This type of coaching should result in improved performance and productivity. It can also focus on more specific areas perhaps highlighted in appraisals etc.

Method:- Face to face and/ or on the telephone.
Regular face to face meetings would be required initially to build up trust & understanding. In the longer term the frequency of meetings can reduce and the telephone can provide an alternative.

Duration :
We would initially recommend a minimum of 4 sessions over eight months lasting for a maximum 2 hours. Over the longer term 2 to 3 sessions a year would be sufficient perhaps taking place after certain milestones such as appraisals, promotions etc.

 

Skills Coaching

What is Skills Coaching?

Skills Coaching is an excellent tool for ensuring that skills & techniques/ actions are put into practice and not just forgotten following the end of training. It can also be used as an alternative to training courses to provide solutions totally tailored to the individual.

What are the benefits of Skills Coaching?
To the individual - provides a support & challenge structure to ensure learning is put into action and productivity increases.
To the business - Skills Coaching provides further opportunity to ensure learning is consolidated and put into action with the result that the behavioural change enhances business performance.

Method:-
Initially face to face with potential for telephone coaching in later sessions.

Duration:
Normally 1-5 sessions from 30-60 minutes per session.
