COACHING

 
Coaching, whether it be life, executive, or business coaching, is an effective way to achieve sustainable growth, change, and success in an individual, team, or organisation.
Coaching unlocks potential, maximises performance, and helps people and business to achieve goals.

Benefits of Coaching

Here are some other reasons to invest in coaching:

  • Provides a space to discover support systems and explore areas for personal and professional development 

  • Aligns team members with the goals and vision of the organisation

  • Strengthens skills and improves productivity

  • Improves teamwork, relationships with peers, job satisfaction and reduces conflict

  • Encourages ownership and responsibility

  • Empowers coachee through increased competence and confidence 

  • Delivers results in large measure because of the supportive relationship between the coach and coachee, and the style of open communication used.

  • Improves leadership capability therefore strengthening succession planning and growth

One-on-One Coaching

The process for one-on-one coaching is simple. We start by getting to know each other's responsibilities within the coach/coachee relationship, discussing your objectives and strategies to get there, and then set specific milestones to work towards. 

 

We recommend a minimum of 6 one-hour sessions to ensure traction and momentum.

The coaching process uses six gateways to reduce hardwired responses of the coachee and to challenge and broaden their perspective. Each session includes three phases:

  1. explore and focus

  2. experience and reflect

  3. integrate and evaluate.

 
 

Peer Coaching

Peer coaching is a confidential process through which two or more professional colleagues work together to:

  • reflect on current practices

  • expand, refine, and build new skills

  • share ideas

  • teach one another

  • conduct classroom research

  • solve problems.

We help clients set up peer mentoring groups, teach the process to do it well, and provide support to get the group up and running.  This is a practice that everyone in an organisation can benefit from - and as it's self-run, it's very cost-effective!
