Coaching is a fast track service in order to create new ways to resolve issues, gain better results and generally achieve goals more easily. It works on the principle of forward thinking:
what do I want, where am I now and how will I get there?
The skill of the coach is to use a combination of listening, questioning, observation and feedback to create conversations that provide insight and learning for the individual. The coachee will experience an un-biased focus and attention, in a safe environment, that helps them to understand themselves, see the bigger picture and to move forward.
Executive coaching is an effective way of developing leaders within the workplace to improve performance and support career development. It is a non threatening and enlightening approach to working with individuals – raising self awareness, building on strengths and defining and filling development gaps. The focus of the coaching is on organisational performance and a process that develops the leader’s capability in achieving short and long term goals. The results are clearly defined with all stakeholder, and are observable and measurable and in line with organisational objectives.
The coach is the critical friend that will help you see the wood and the trees, make sense of it and move forward with it.
