As coaches we are trusted professionals. Our role is to offer supportive challenge and new perspectives in a “curious not critical” manner to aid your thinking processes. We provide one to one coaching and initial consultation will identify the level of support you may benefit from. We can book coaching in blocks of four 90 minute sessions. Some areas of coaching support can be resolved within just one 90 minute session. We also offer intensive 6 hour “breakthrough sessions” to accelerate resolution of a specific issue which might be preventing you personally (or professionally) from achieving your potential. Within businesses we can run on-site coaching surgeries where we provide a coach to be accessible for the day at your location. These surgeries can prove highly effective if your team tend to work off-site, allowing their coaching sessions to be planned around other on-site meetings.
Our coaching provision is broadly separated into two areas (Business Coaching and Personal Coaching), both of which target performance and change. Taking a systemic approach to assisting you to identify and achieve ecologically sound goals, ensures that progress in one of these areas is not detrimental in the other,
Each client and business is unique and our approach to every coaching intervention is therefore tailored to your individual needs. We are experienced in a range of coaching approaches including symbolic modelling, clean language techniques and content-free working. We work with you to identify measurable objectives and enable you to achieve tangible outcomes and since coaching focuses on the individual there are also a range of personal development benefits. The business benefits of this targeted support can include: enhanced morale, increased motivation and productivity, plus reduced absence and staff turnover, since individuals feel valued and connected with broader organisational strategic direction.
EXECUTIVE COACHING – This refers to coaching which is contracted for CEOs, Directors and Senior Managers. It is essential when selecting your coach that you work with an individual who has the level of expertise to support you to enhance your strategic thinking, leadership and communication skills. Our coaches are experienced in this field and can assist you to address certain challenges and decisions you may face as a senior business leader. As executive coaches we provide a neutral space for you to assess what is happening within your business and sector and to ensure quality decisions are made. We also bring a level of management experience to the coaching relationship which you can draw from; however it is important to note that as “coaches” we are not telling and advising you what to do or think.
SME COACHING – We work with established business leaders and middle managers to support you in being more effective within your roles. We assist you in enhancing your business results and to develop successful, motivated and highly productive teams. We develop your ability to think systemically and whilst coaching may form part of your individual development programme, it can equally be targeted to support wider team performance and we can coach individuals or teams. Perhaps your business is growing from a family enterprise to now incorporating a wider team of employees, or perhaps you are moving from single site to multi-site, we can coach you to lead this change effectively and find new ways of working which work for you.
NEW BUSINESS START UP and SOLE TRADERS – Starting a business, whilst exciting and hugely rewarding can feel like a lonely challenge. We work with sole traders and business start-ups to create, grow and develop their businesses and wider stakeholder relationships. Within each of these fields our expertise in managing ambiguity and organisational change can assist you with identifying options, engaging others with ideas, and implementing new and innovative approaches to achieving your goals.
LIFE COACHING – This approach is ideal for those who wish to identify how to get more from life and are willing to take action to achieve their goals. We explore all aspects of your system to identify where you have potential and motivation to achieve more or where there might be imbalance. We will assist you in defining well-formed outcomes and recognising strategies that work for you. Through NLP and a range of applied psychology, we will put you in touch with the wealth of personal resources you already possess, helping you prioritise your goals and activities enabling you to achieve the positive results you deserve. Life coaching facilitates self-discovery and en-route you will increase your self-awareness, and overcome potential barriers to progress, providing potential to improve your self-esteem, confidence and resilience.
CAREER COACHING – A guided approach to career planning is a great way to gain clarity on the steps you will need to take and the advocates who can support you through professional growth. We start with recognising your goals versus your current reality and resolving any self-limiting beliefs. Career mapping and identifying career anchors then helps identify motivation for work. Capability auditing will raise your understanding of the knowledge, skills and behaviours you possess and those you may need to develop further. Through Psychometric personality profiling we will help you to understand yourself and others further exploring communication preferences. NLP interventions will gain alignment between your goals and your values and enable you to develop successful strategies.
PERSONAL CHANGE MANAGEMENT – Any significant change can feel overwhelming and as human beings we each have our own level of comfort with and tolerance of change. Coaching through change can help put into perspective each aspect of transition. It may be that you are actively instigating change and looking to explore how best to make it effective, who to engage, how to minimise resistance etc. Alternatively you may be in the middle of change which has arrived as if from nowhere leaving you feeling disempowered and looking for some tangible steps forward. Managing yourself through change is an essential skill of the 21st century and developing a degree of comfort with ambiguity is one of the first steps in mastering your ability to create and embed change in a personal and professional context. Understanding the change process and exploring non-judgementally the responses of others to change can minimise conflict, enabling supportive transition. Examples where this coaching is relevant include – divorce, conflict, new family, house move / relocation, new role, redundancy, new job role. This is not “counselling” and whilst NLP can resolve previous historical patterns, this coaching is primarily “future and outcome focused” and “proactive”. We can also provide personal transformation days. For more information – Click hereTRANSFORMATION DAY
NLP CHANGE WORK – As NLP Practitioners / Master Practitioners and Professional Coaches, we blend NLP and applied psychology models, working one to one with you to create more effective personal strategies. NLP Change work lends itself to breakthrough sessions, since often the topics of change are well developed patterns.
