We are experienced coaches. We enjoy working
with individuals to facilitate a shift in self awareness, supporting people to become
the leaders they and their business require them to be. Our coaching has been described as life changing by people we have worked with.
As well as working with individuals, we have designed coaching programmes for organisations to understand the coaching style and how to use this to significantly improve performance and employee engagement. We can use psychometric assessments to help people understand the way they operate in work
Mentoring is a slightly different approach where, instead of asking you questions to help you improve your performance, we will work with you, giving suggestions about how to approach a particular situation based on our own experience.
We have helped businesses design mentoring programmes for their own organisations, designing the documents to support matching mentors and mentees so that the business can then run the programme themselves.
We work across sectors with many organisations at a team building level. We can work with you to ensure any team building event is designed so that you gain the most from the time spent together. We can use psychometrics to help you develop an clear understanding of where your strengths and gaps are within your team.
We run workshops to help leaders think about the climate they set within the teams they lead, what managerial styles are important to develop and how you move your team to being high performing. We will work with you to determine what essential building blocks need to be in place to achieve this, beginning with trust and respect.
