“Executive Coaching is aimed at inspiring executive leaders to make behavioural changes which transform themselves and the people around them thereby increasing business results and performance.” Jeremy Robinson, working definition of executive coaching.
When team members and managers require soft skills development, the natural route is to offer a generic training course, for example in assertiveness or time management. Many courses offer excellent content and cover a range of topics, but sometimes a team member needs a more bespoke and personally designed development programme. This is where a Performance Coach can add greater value by helping the individual to address challenges specific to that person.
Working one-to-one with a qualified, experienced Performance Coach provides a safe and confidential space to explore topics such as handling difficult situations, managing stress or giving an engaging presentation. A targeted and confidential conversation with a Performance Coach will challenge yet support the individual, enabling them to perform at their best, more often.
When you are good at what you do, the natural progression is a promotion, and often you are ‘rewarded’ with a management role which includes leading a team of people – with little or no training. Newly appointed managers and even experienced leaders can find this role overwhelming as they struggle to understand how to behave like a leader- which is where a Leadership Coach can help.
Working one-to-one with a qualified, experienced Leadership Coach provides a safe and confidential space to raise your self-awareness of how best to lead with authenticity, to build a cohesive team, and to ensure that objectives are achieved.
Our mission is to help smaller businesses achieve their ambitions.
Running a small business can be a stressful job. Owners must be ready to turn their hand to a wide range of activities to succeed, perhaps moving from human resources one minute to stocktaking and financial management the next. New business owners discover gaps in their experience and skills which need addressing to be successful.
The everyday tasks that sometimes dominate the workload may leave little time for strategic thinking. Yet with a few simple steps, SMB owners can turn things around and create more opportunities to do what they do best: find new ways to grow and drive success. Entrepreneurs want to take control of their business, often they turn to a coach to support their endeavours.
We often work with small businesses on vision, strategy and planning.
The Health Coaching Quality Framework defines Health Coaching ‘as a patient-centred process that is based upon behaviour change theory and is delivered by health professionals with diverse backgrounds’.
Evidence-based Health Coaching is rooted in Behavioural Science. Its purpose is to create a mindset shift and we believe that Health and Wellness Coaching sets the way for a paradigm shift in promoting health & wellness within communities. Health and Wellness Coaching provides a positive connection, a supportive relationship and assumes that health & wellness is a process, never a static state.
Team coaching is significantly different from individual coaching. It takes place in a context vastly different from one-to-one coaching. It requires a heightened psychological mindedness, an ability to work with the unseen and unspoken and awareness of systems and their impact on teams. It also requires the ability to simultaneously hold multiple coachees in awareness, the ability to observe from a distance and yet stay in contact with oneself and the team members, and of course the proven ability to coach professionally
