What is coaching?

Coaching & Mentoring: It is a professionally guided process that inspires clients to maximise their personal and professional potential. It is a structured, purposeful, and transformational process, helping clients to see and test alternative ways for improvement of competence, decision making and enhancement of quality of life. Coach and Mentor and client work together in a partnering relationship on strictly confidential terms. In this relationship, clients are experts on the content & decision-making level; the coach & mentor is an expert in professionally guiding the process (EMCC, 2015)

Skills and performance coaching

This genre of coaching is ideal for a person looking to optimise their performance and develop skills in a professional setting or with a specific outcome in mind.  For example, more confidence in having challenging conversations, delivering presentations, or hitting work-related targets.

Developmental Coaching

Here we view the individual as a whole and consider work and personal life at the same time.  Areas such as personal strengths, values, career ambitions, personal and work relationships are explored resulting in increased self-awareness, personal and professional satisfaction.  If you are wondering where work or life could go next, you will find clarity and a way forward here.

Executive and Leadership Coaching

You are already a successful leader but to take the next steps you need a little something extra, you are about to take your first leadership role or leadership is tougher than you thought.  We will work together to identify and leverage your strengths, see yourself more clearly in your role, learn new ways to respond to the demands of leadership, build productive professional relationships and achieve what you want.

Your needs will guide whether we use one genre of coaching exclusively or a hybrid approach.
