Practical & Pragmatic
Coaching is one of the most powerful management tools you can master. Done properly it produces a continual cycle of personal and business growth. So whether you are being coached yourself to shed new light on, say, performance or communication issues, or whether you are developing the coaching skills of your managers and front line supervisors you will maximise the effectiveness of everyone’s contribution.
Managers find that improving their coaching skills helps them transfer knowledge and guide their staff in on-going development. As a result, staff will be better motivated, be more resilient and have a clear understanding of what is expected. The ABC of developing people is a model for success.
I offer personal coaching to Directors, managers and staff wishing to do their job better or who are facing change or reorganisation. In addition I offer coaching skills training to groups in various modules, including Institute of Leadership Management certificate courses.
My wide experience of running a training department and designing and delivering courses means I am also able to offer specialised mentoring to training and development staff keen to get the very best results from their work.
Some people may prefer to work within the more informal environment of my “Coaching Cafe” sessions for individuals.
Programs at a glance
1. Personal development sessions (face to face, on line or by phone)
When things feel stuck, an external perspective and expertise can shed fresh light on performance or communication issues and suggest new ways to address them. Confidential, supportive coaching helps individuals re-assess a situation and gain new skills to take things forward.
Having agreed goals at the outset, the approaches used in each session are selected to meet the outcome. It may be starting with Solution Focus or taking a look at Myers Briggs Type Indicator or exploring some new management techniques. You leave the session with agreed actions and new techniques to try out, reflect on, and review on subsequent occasions.
Too busy to meet? Well the on line sessions work over an 8 week period and can be accessed and worked on 24/7. Available individually or speak to me for an organisation package.
Duration: two-hour face to face sessions at fortnightly or monthly intervals works well, the newly available on line facility offered through Coaching interactive offers a fabulous way to get speedy progress.
2. Manager development sessions
Coaching skills training to develop a coaching culture
Developing the coaching skills of your managers and front-line supervisors will maximise everyone’s contribution. Managers find coaching techniques are the most effective way to transfer skills, improve performance and ensure their staff’s on-going development. The result is better motivated staff who have a clear understanding of what is expected from them.
These training modules provide an opportunity to develop and practice new skills and techniques .
Duration: Designed for you: half-day workshops to three-day programmes.
