The Coaching process allows and encourages management the time and space to seek out and explore solutions in a new way. Asking the right questions that will in turn generate more energy, more enthusiasm and more ideas, helping you set a direction for your organisation and move confidently forward. You set your agenda, we follow your programme and enable you to maximise your potential and the potential of your organisation.
Coaching offers the tools that will stretch your best people and support them in moving forward in your organisation. Coaching will help them identify and embrace challenges that will keep them with you and keep them contributing to the successful development of your business. Your best people may often be the very ones who leave if they do not feel adequately challenged, sufficiently motivated and equally well rewarded at work.
Your business has grown successfully and is at the point of moving to the next level. This will require skills that you may not have and action that you may not be comfortable with. Coaching will enable you to set out what needs to be done, personally and strategically, to meet the challenges ahead.
You need to raise the game of a key team or teams in your organisation. Perhaps there is a lack of creativity. Perhaps solutions are just not just being found. Perhaps the team is just not working together. Business Coaching will draw out a clear awareness of where the team is, the challenges it faces and how these challenges might be addressed. Using tools and techniques from our extensive experience of Executive Business Coaching we will then form the basis of a clear plan of action to ensure the team works to its full capacity.
There are many challenges for newly merged organisations, units or departments. Critical challenges include dealing with change, working in newly formed teams and avoiding cultural collisions. Within the context of the new organisation, Coaching can help individuals identify common goals and common approaches towards achieving those goals.
Being made redundant can be one of the most traumatic experiences someone will go through during a life-time. Even though redundancy is mainly a strategic or financial decision, being made redundant can generate feelings of low self-esteem and a "can't do" approach to life's immediate challenges, one of which is coming back into the work-place. Coaching can help individuals identify that which they can do, the qualities they do possess and the opportunities they can look for. Coaching also helps nullify the “survivor syndrome” common after redundancy.
Returning to work after a long absence, for example following maternity leave or illness, can be a difficult and trying process. Coaching will help you focus on the benefits of being back, help you to adapt to the changes that you will inevitably find and help you increase your confidence and energy. In short, Coaching will build your confidence and therefore ease your return to the workplace.
Companies often invest in training without necessarily getting a good return on that investment. Coaching will ensure that new knowledge is communicated, implemented and embedded into your organisation. Executive Coaching will add value to training and your organisation will benefit from that. Figures show an 80% increase in knowledge retention when coaching is used after training. Source CIPD.
So many people come home from work stressed out and irritable, and all they want to do is collapse. There are good reasons for this. Perhaps there seems to be too much to do at work. Perhaps there is no time to exercise. Perhaps there is no time to eat properly. Unhealthy living affects our bodies, our minds and often our ability to operate at our most effective in the workplace. Coaching can quite simply help reverse this situation. Executive Business Coaching helps people plan their time, assess their priorities and most importantly makes them feel good about themselves and their choices. Executive Business Coaching gets people back on track to a healthier and happier life, spiritually, physically and professionally. Pressure is all around us - meetings, traffic congestion, deadlines, email overload, voicemail messages, the list can seem endless. Most people work well under pressure but when the amount of pressure put upon us in our working life outweighs the amount of time available, the balance shifts and the resulting effect is stress. Balancing the demands that arise from time to time through life, whether originating from the working environment, or from home, impacts upon an individual's ability to perform. This can result in costly consequences for employers, the self-employed and individuals. Executive Business Coaching can bring a sense of clarity, structure, and decisiveness to thinking that improves decision-making and the effect is positive action.
