COACHING.

More and more businesses are realising the value of Coaching, and for good reason; it is one of the most cost-effective and speediest ways to attain real behavioural change and get results.

 

Coaching in business has grown rapidly and research conducted in 2009 by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) highlighted that it is the most effective talent management activity used by organisations.

 

We love this sporting analogy …

 

"When looking to enhance knowledge and ability, even the most elite and talented athletes need a coach, someone who will help them analyse their performance and set goals for what they want to achieve in the future, and direction in achieving those goals. Business is no different."  

(Rebecca Spicer, "The Coaching Drill", Dynamic Business, July 2007)

OUR APPROACH

We deliver coaching sessions either face to face, via telephone, skype or a mixture of all three. As with all of our services, coaching assignments are tailored to meet your needs and, so, the exact shape and flow of every coaching assignment is different but all are based on the following key principles:

 

1

Understand Basic Requirements

 

Initially we aim to get a high level understanding of your needs and objectives to ensure we match you with an appropriate coach.

 

2

A short introductory meeting

 

We offer a free 30 minute introductory meeting to ensure that there is a working chemistry between the individual and the coach and we also seek to understand the needs in more detail.

 

3

Defining the individual’s coaching objectives

 

At this initial ‘contracting session’ we help you to establish goals and success measures for the program and agree the duration and structure.

 

4

Bespoke support and structure

 

After the preliminary steps above, a robust programme of coaching sessions gets underway.  If not completed at an earlier stage, psychometrics may be administered at the first session. Goals and actions for the interim periods are agreed.

 

5

Ongoing Support and Review

 

Each session reviews the progress that has been made since the last session. We devise realistic and effective strategies for action to ensure continued change. We also offer telephone and e-mail support between sessions

 

6

Programme Review

 

At the end of the Coaching Plan we undertake a ‘Programme Review’, where we measure and discuss the outcomes and personal achievements. An ROI report will be prepared for the client.

PSYCHOMETRIC ASSESSMENTS

The use of the most appropriate psychometric or assessment  leads to valuable insights of the coachee and enables us to  capture their strengths and development areas and build these  into their coaching programme. This approach contributes to the success and impact of the coaching and,maximises the  effectiveness of the investment. 

Typically, we may use them to open up areas for discussion with  the coachee and/or to provide structure to their coaching  programme. We may also use them as a source of data on the  coachee and it is often valuable as a data source for the coachee to take away with them and reflect on.

 

We offer an initial 30-minute session free of charge.

The aim of the free session is to give you a taste of coaching and a feel for how we can work with you and help you towards achieving your goals.  

 

There is no obligation to commit to further sessions.
