Coaching for Managers & Leaders

         Association for Coaching          Coach List - Coaching at Work

What is coaching?

We think these 6 points nicely sum up what coaching is about;

 

  • Coaching is essentially a conversation
  • Coaching is about learning (yet a coach is not a teacher)
  • Coaching is more about providing the right questions than providing  answers
  • Coaching is about change and transformation
  • Coaching is about reinvention
  • Coaching also operates on an emotional plane

 

“The Complete Guide to Coaching at Work” (Zeus & Skiffington, 2000)

 

Over 25 years’ experience of working in and for blue chip companies enables Martin  to blend practical insight with an in-depth knowledge of team working, neuroscience, psychometric profiling and behavioural change

Our coaching gives you the space to rise above your day to day challenges  and create a space so that you can explore your challenges strategically and  find solutions. Coaching enables you to work one to one and take a more  objective view of any personal and professional development issues while being fully supported by your coach.

 

Although coaching follows a process, any agenda for the coaching always comes from the client. The coach is responsible for ensuring that process enables the client to explore their agenda and move to action.

 

If you want to make a change in your life, business or organisation and maximise your potential, perhaps in a management or leadership role, then our Executive Coaching and Development will enable you  to set a clearly defined vision and strategy needed to achieve your goals and help you do just that.

CASE STUDIES AND FEEDBACK

 

HOW DOES IT WORK? Coaching relationships are usually  focused and tend to exist for a specific medium term period, say three to six  months. They consist of a series of 1.5 to 2 hour sessions, supported by online & telephone contact. For a typical 6 month contract you can expect up to 6 face to face or Skype meetings. The coaching programme is agreed with  the client beforehand and is focused solely on the needs of the client.
