Coaching is a process, which helps you to be clear what you want to achieve, both professionally and personally and where the coach works along side you to help you achieve your goals. It allows you space, in a comfortable safe and confidential way to look at your work and life, to discuss ideas and thoughts as well as issues and problems and to decide how you want to move forward. It can be warm and supportive as well as challenging and active.
In a work context it helps you to keep focussed on your core purpose, rather than being pulled in all directions, and empowers you to work with you key strengths rather than focus only on the areas where you may be less strong. It will also identify your development areas and give you ways to improve your impact in practical and specific ways.
All the packages are tailor-made and begin by establishing what you want to get from the process and how success will be measured so you are clear from the onset what can be achieved and the support the coach will offer. The following packages are to help you at whatever stage you’re at in your working life.
Leadership/Executive Coaching Package
This is a 6 month/1 year package, which has helps:
Being in a leadership position can be lonely, where the expectations of everyone around you can be impossible to meet. Knowing what is absolutely unique about you can help to identify the best use of you and your talents as well as identify what the organisation needs and how best to meet those needs.
This coaching is for managers where particular issues have been identified either through appraisal or through feedback [via 360’s or from other avenues] where improvements need to be made in order to develop the skill base of the manager. It may be a manager whose general approach is very good but who is held back by a particular skill gap e.g. a manager who may be very task focussed and brilliant at delivering but who is alienating their team members or indeed those who are great with people but not necessarily good at delivering hard messages
With this approach the development area is identified and the agreement drawn up to look precisely at what changes need to be made and how outcomes will be measured [this is particularly important if a line manager has identified the issue in the first place] and how many Coaching sessions will be involved to achieve this outcome
Benefits to Organisation
Coaching is a process which supports talent and the expression of that talent within organisations. It can deal with problems before they develop into real issues. At senior levels the type of development that is needed to allow growth and change often needs not only to be tailor made but also a level of emotional intelligence that both supports and challenges. It can help on a straightforward level to deliver the organisational objectives but can also offer greater depth than can lead to Managers contributing to the whole organisation in much broader ways
