Individual Coaching Programmes
What’s it about?
All our Business Coaching Programmes are bespoke and tailored to meet the individual needs of each of our clients. Each session with your coach is unique and the coachee drives the agenda. We pride ourselves in working with organisations to achieve performance improvement by changing behaviour. We do this by developing bespoke coaching programmes that address your different challenges and opportunities. These have included programmes that cultivate the following:
Organisational Coaching Culture
Confidence and Self Esteem
Building your personal brand
Accredited Coaching & Mentoring Programmes (ILM)
Retirement & Succession Programmes
How we do it?
We listen to our clients to identify the needs of the individual to be coached and ask relevant questions to encourage self-discovery, learning and solutions. We do this by utilising a variety of coaching methodologies and interactive solutions which enables them to achieve personal and professional growth through enhanced performance.
Develop and Design
We develop and design a coaching programme that is centred around your individual needs using a variety of communication styles, face to face, phone and skype interactions. The sessions are interactive and we often inter-disperse the sessions with some management theory and skills training if required and ensure that the theory is reflected into workplace practice through questioning techniques or observation/exercises.
On Going Support
Throughout the coaching journey, our coaches support the individual via a variety of methods, face to face, phone, skype, email. We use a number of psychological tools and techniques including NLP and Emotional Intelligence and draw on a toolbox rich with knowledge, business expertise and leadership experience.
Our coaches have a vast wealth of experience in both business and personal development coaching and have many years experience in wide variety of industry sectors.
Performance and Measurement
As executive coaches, we pride ourselves on two additional key capabilities;
1. The art of aligning organisational objectives with an individual’s goals
2. The capability of delivering return on investment.
We do this by getting the individual to put together a personal development plan which should align with the company development plan. We follow up with the programme sponsor and the coachee at the cessation of the coaching programme and 6 months later.
Our coaches are professional qualified who have many years coaching and leadership experience. They understand the challenges of leadership and managing & development people because they have all been leaders within significant organisations. They use a wide range of psychological and behavioural techniques, tailored to the needs of the client. We have positive expectations for a coaching relationship that helps you to create the life YOU want to live.
Coaching as a Process
Many people create change for themselves in a short time. However, to refine and sustain the change takes several months. We would ask that you expect our coaching relationship to last at least 3 months or more if needed. We assign a coach that we believe would be the best fit for the client and an initial launch pad meeting is arranged. This meeting is intended for the coach and coachee to identify whether they are the best fit in terms of the client needs and whether a solid coaching relationship could be formed going forward.
The commitment of the Coachee
You need to have:
A strong desire to change
A willingness to be open and honest with yourself and your coach
The time to complete actions you set yourself and agree them with the coach
Readiness to invest in your future
