Coaching is a powerful, future & solutions focused development and learning tool for individuals, leaders or managers in any organisation or type of business. My coaching sessions are skilled and targeted conversations that challenge and support people to help themselves, and or their business, to excel and to think differently.

IS COACHING FOR ME?

I believe there are enormous benefits to both the organisation and the individual being coached, however people often have concerns, wondering if performance coaching and mentoring for your employee is worth the investment?

Some key questions to ask yourself are:

1

Would individuals and the wider organisation benefit from improved employee’s performance? What would that look like?

2

If teams could establish greater awareness of themselves and also the dynamics of the team, would that have a positive impact within the organisation? How?

3

Are there skills and knowledge gaps within the organisation? Would addressing these gaps equate to improved business performance and opportunities?

I believe that coaching works best when it:

  • Is used when there is a desire or a need for change
  • Is used to help drive culture change in an organisation
  • Helps individuals to address specific issues, behaviours or enhance their performance when taking on a particularly challenging work role or project
  • Provides professional and personal development that is particularly appropriate for those in senior positions who have little time and for whom being lonely at the top can be a common experience
  • Is driven by the needs of the client. It is about assisting people to achieve their full potential, with a focus on what they want to achieve now and in the future. It is a partnership between the executive coach and the client for a defined period of time
