Organisations in every sector face complexity and change at an increasingly rapid rate. Executive Coaching is a focused and effective way to help your executives meet the specific challenges they face.
Our Executive Coaching is highly tailored to the needs of the individual in the context of their organisation and delivered to professionally Accredited Standards.
Our coaches are carefully selected and meet accreditation standards expected by ICF (International Coaching Federation) or EMCC (European Mentoring and Coaching Council) – in addition, our coaches need to be able to demonstrate a combination of business experience, business consulting and coaching expertise.
What is Executive Coaching?
There has been an explosion of Coaches and Coaching Services on the market, Executive Coaching is increasingly seen as a significant way of contributing to an organisations change and management agenda. We would first like to clarify what we mean by coaching and then follow with some insights about the benefits of having coaching.
Tim Gallwey is largely credited with bringing coaching into the arena of business life. He started as a tennis coach and wrote a book called the "Inner Game of Tennis". He subsequently wrote The Inner Game of Golf and The Inner Game of Work. All of his books are extremely readable and useful. His definition of coaching embraces the empowering concept of teaching people to learn, rather than just simply teaching them and describes the Coaching process as follows:
“In every human endeavor there are two arenas of engagement: the outer and the inner. The outer game is played on an external arena to overcome external obstacles to reach an external goal. The inner game takes place within the mind of the player and is played against such obstacles as fear, self-doubt, lapses in focus, and limiting concepts or assumptions. The inner game is played to overcome the self-imposed obstacles that prevent an individual or team from accessing their full potential.”
What’s Our Approach?
We believe that you take your whole self to work. As such we do not simply call ourselves "Performance Coaches", focusing only on issues that affect work performance. We take a much broader or systemic view. We take into account that the factors that may be affecting someone's performance at work could be at many levels such as; the environment, the Coachee’s behaviour or that of others, their knowledge and skills, beliefs and values or even their concept of their own identity.
Although coaching principally involves advanced listening and questioning skills on behalf of the Coach, we also draw on a range of powerful and potent NLP techniques
We offer two different ways to assist people in their endeavour to achieve personal transformations:
- We conduct personal and Executive coaching face-to-face or by telephone sessions are designed to help people on an incremental and regular basis.
- Breakthrough Sessions, which are intensive face-to-face coaching sessions designed to support people with more in-depth solutions. Normally these sessions are once-off and of about 6-8 hour’s duration
At the onset, our primary focus is to establish a positive relationship between coach and client. We will work with you to clearly understand the goals and outcomes you want to achieve and how we will evaluate them. Together we define and agree the boundaries for our coaching relationship.
