Coaching is a powerful process to support change and development. Skillful questioning by a coach, which is highly supportive, yet challenging, helps people to reflect deeply on their personal and/or professional situation. They are then able to see things from a different perspective, gain clarity, uncover options, and take personal accountability for moving forward and making changes.
Our team of highly experienced professional coach supervisors have a broad range of coaching and mentoring experience, working at all levels up to CEOs of large public, private and third sector organisations, as well as delivering coaching programmes for blue chip clients. They work at the non-directive end of the coaching spectrum which means that they use questions and draw on relevant models to help people explore their issues and find their own solutions. A truly effective coach will not offer advice and will rarely make suggestions based on their own experience. The focus is on moving an individual towards an outcome, helping them feel committed to change and empowered to take action.
Coaching can be used for personal or professional development, and often for both. Clients will often be interested in developing their skills within their current role and increasing their readiness for the next step in their career. In these challenging times, the role of the professional workplace coach has possibly never been more relevant.
