Our consultants use a range of tools and techniques to help people explore issues from different angles, gaining new insights and perspectives. We adopt approaches that work with the preferred styles of individuals and that build confidence and capacity working from strengths and potential.
This Coaching is for managers where particular issues have been identified either through appraisal or through feedback where improvements need to be made in order to develop the skill base of the manager.
Team coaching is a synthesis of executive coaching and team development. It is a process in which the whole team works with a coach to develop greater awareness of themselves and their effectiveness as a team within the context of their organisation, in order to more effectively serve their stakeholders.
Do some of your managers find the ‘people’ aspects of their roles most challenging? Are their interpersonal leadership skills sometimes lacking? Do they ever avoid ‘people problems’ so that they build up into bigger, messy situations?
Our workshops are tried and tested with managers at all levels, including executive leadership teams.

Analysis of your current management culture and design of culture change strategies
Senior managers work together on strategic issues in a supportive environment, using an innovative networking approach supported by a skilled action learning facilitator. We also offer inter-agency Action Learning Sets to support working together across agencies. These sets enable managers to obtain new perspectives on the challenges facing them and to develop their understanding of the management problems facing colleagues in other agencies. This can also work well across multi-disciplinary teams.
