Individual & Team Coaching

Coaching is about creating positive focused change, by improving a person's thinking and behaviour, leading to improved results.

 

Our accredited coaches work with executives, senior leaders, top performers and future stars to elevate their performance and realise their potential. We can also work with teams to help them reach new goals.

Thinking & Feeling

Coaching helps you to think and feel differently

Behaviour Change

As a result, you experience new behaviours

Improved Results

It enables you to reach your goals more easily

Our role in this process is to create a safe, supportive environment where you can set goals, be challenged and take action. We help you to think better, not tell you what to do. You're the experts in your business, we're the experts in supporting you to make the positive change.

Coaching has many possible applications:

 

  • Developing leadership abilities

  • Enhancing your career

  • Exploring career change

  • Improving your thinking

  • Increasing your performance

  • Creating more work-life balance

  • Improving relationships

  • Making life decisions

Brain-based methodology

People learn best when brain-friendly approaches are taken, so we use a coaching methodology based upon the most recent findings in neuroscience.

Individual Coaching - 3 pathways

We can work with you in a number of different ways, depending on what your goals are and how much time and investment you are ready to commit to. We can work with you virtually or face to face if logistics allow.

Each pathway starts with a complimentary 'chemistry meeting', which is a opportunity for the coach and coachee to get to know each other and to understand the coaching process. If there is a good fit, we'll then explore what approach would work for you.

What our customers say

"The coaching helped me identify, articulate and work through specific professional growth areas in an open and comfortable manner. It helped me distinguish perceptions from actions, prompting a more deliberate approach and a better sense of control in my work. I recommend this to any leader looking to push through roadblocks, or who is simply in need of an objective and experienced sounding board."

Deputy Head of Learning & Development, Banking Sector

“For someone with day-to-day focus on work and team results, these coaching sessions have really been an eye-opening opportunity for me. I felt safe to open up about my personal limiting beliefs and my perceived strengths. The sessions have allowed me to reflect on my actions and figure out ways to leverage my strengths in overcoming my own limiting beliefs."

Frequently asked questions

What's the difference between coaching and consulting, training, mentoring or counselling?

 

Coaching often gets confused with other disciplines, including training, consulting, mentoring and counselling. Although a trained coach may use many of the same skills, it is a very different process.

Coaching is not Consulting. We don't give advice, unless it is highly appropriate. We prefer to help you make choices rather than telling you what you 'should' do. A consultant does a job for your organisation, whereas we support you to do the job better yourself. 

Coaching is not Training. We have no pre-set curriculum or conversation and we focus upon where you want to go. You determine the goals, not us. Coaching is a different experience for every person.

Coaching is not Mentoring. Mentoring is often focused upon the development of your career. Although coaching can help you to make choices and set career goals, it is applicable to a far broader area of work and life. Mentoring also requires the giving of advice, which coaching doesn't do. We don't need to know a lot about your job role, in fact it's often better if we don't, so that we have no agenda or fixed perspective.

Coaching is not Counselling. Coaching focuses upon moving forward, where you are now, what your goal is and what action you can take to get there. It is more about 'how' rather than 'why'. 

What do you do as a coach?

We are there to facilitate a structured coaching conversation and to allow a discussion to unfold around a context that you set. We don't set the agenda, but help you to move where you want to go through questioning and goal setting.

Do you give advice?

We don't give advice. You are the expert in your field and giving you advice would come from our perspective. Rather, we work with you in a structured way, to help you see things from a different perspective, challenging your thinking and helping you to set goals and take action.

Are the coaching conversations confidential?

Absolutely. Coaching is all about trust. When we coach, we treat the content of our coaching conversations seriously and we follow the guidelines and code of ethics of the International Coaching Federation. We make sure that all parties involved in the coaching process have a pre-agreed understanding about what level of information is shared.

Why should we use a trained coach?

Using a coach who has been through a recognised training programme ensures that they follow international standards and gives you peace of mind that a thorough training process has been followed. Coaching conversations should be free-flowing and natural, where you feel valued and listened to.

 

We are certified with the NeuroLeadership Institute as Brain-Based coaches, which is an International Coaching Federation (ICF) accredited training programme. We also have a Associate Certified Coach (ICF) on our team. We follow ICF guidelines to ensure that our programmes are run ethically and professionally.

How long does a coaching programme last?

Coaching is all about positive forward thinking, setting goals and implementing actions to see results quickly. We offer 3 pathways - a single focused 'Explore' session, a 3-month Discover programme and a 5-month Develop programme. Individual coaching sessions are 90 minutes in length, usually spaced at two weekly intervals, although this can be flexible depending upon the specific requirements. We can also design a bespoke coaching programme to suit your own requirements.

Who do you work with?

Coaching is about helping people to think differently. You must want to reach new goals, so we'll only work with you if you want to make a positive change. Our coaching programmes always include a 'chemistry meeting' before the programme begins, to ensure that there is good rapport and understanding between us.
