Coaching is what we do so it’s not surprising we talk about the rewards coaching can bring to anyone who will listen! Without doubt, some of the most rewarding work we do is helping managers experience for themselves the rewards of coaching others.
How do we do it? Firstly, we unpack the mystique and confusion that seems to surround coaching – being really clear about what coaching is and more importantly when it will work at its best.
Secondly, we show that coaching can be effective in ten minutes or less. Time is often presented as the barrier to coaching – yes, there is an initial investment but effective coaching will actually free up time, giving you valuable time to focus on the bigger issues.
Thirdly, we build on existing skills and give you the techniques and confidence to make coaching an integral part of how you manage.
Lastly, and this is the one we think makes the greatest difference, we support you to make coaching skills stick. To us, quality training is only the beginning -we provide on-going access to professional coaches and set up regular coaching clinics to share experiences, celebrate successes and continue developing skills and techniques.
Managers talk about the difference coaching makes for both them and their team members – teams become more self-sufficient, teams are more energised, engaged and motivated to achieve more. Happier teams mean productivity goes up and retention increases. Combine this with the time you free up and organisations see a huge return on investment for both managers and the organisation as a whole.
