Coaching is a conversation with a purpose. Our coaching is work based, focussed on results and combines support with challenge.
Our approach is based on identifying the right kind of coaching for the identified outcomes and the person who wants to be coached. Typical coaching programmes are 6 sessions of 2 hours.
A directive form of coaching where the outcome is skills that need to be learned and applied when you don’t know what you don’t know. These are one to one sessions designed to take you through the key parts of a skill or process to make sure you can apply it back at work. As you start to apply the learning the sessions become more reflective and dynamic enabling you to learn from your experience and consolidate your competence.
A combination of direct and indirect coaching where the clear outcomes are within your grasp but you just need time to think it through, harness your ability and maybe have some help too. The sessions centre on powerful questions to help you access your wisdom together with suggestions, proposal and sometimes advice when you are stuck and really don’t know the answer. Further sessions become less directive as you grow in confidence and are able to use your experience to build your competence.
An indirect coaching style where you have clear outcomes and have the competence to get there but need to clear your way and organise your thoughts. The sessions focus entirely on powerful questions and observations enabling you to reach the actions you want to take in a non-judgemental way.
Our coaching approach
All our coaching is conducted using accepted good practice. We agree outcomes with the individual and their manager and review those outcomes at the end of the programme.
Whatever level of coaching you decide is best for your desired outcomes we adhere to our coaching model which we have developed through our AOEC Diploma status, our experience and continued professional development.
- Have clarity of the issues you are grappling with and a clear way forward.
- Understand what is driving any unproductive behaviour to head it off the next time it comes along.
- Identify what you can and cannot influence and control so your energy is directed to the right place.
- Explore the skills you need, practise them and reflect on their impact to develop them more.
- Review the impact of your changed behaviour, make adjustments and a keep up the momentum or slightly change direction.
- Braver people willing to become more self-aware and behave more effectively
- Resilient people able to problem solve, make clearer decisions and take responsibility for their own learning and development
- Immediate results as individualised learning is put straight into action and the identified challenges are overcome quickly and skilfully.
