Coaching others is a collaborative process using specific questions and their answers to create an internal frame of reference towards a potentially different way of doing or understanding things…
The reason why coaching works so much better than simple instruction is down to our physical neurology. New learning pathways need to be established and tested in our brains before they finally become embedded in our subconscious. We can’t create those new pathways externally; they must be self-induced and relevant to our existing thought process or at the very least will become relevant after practice and experience.
With more than 15,000 coaching interventions to our name, we are pretty sure that there are few companies with as much experience at having the right conversations with people that help them to move beyond their perceived reality of a situation or problem.
We believe that coaching should be an inherent skill of all management populations, and not just restricted to internal HR professionals or externally outsourced through any particular provider. To this end, we provide individual, team and whole organisation based coaching skills training, as well as providing individual coaching for staff at all levels across your organisation.
These days, especially since the outbreak of coronavirus, coaching does not have to be face to face, we provide many of our clients with a virtual coaching facility, which not only reduces time, travel and costs, it also enables a far more responsive and sometimes even a more immediate solution.
