Coaching has been described as ‘the art of facilitating the development, learning and performance of another.’ It is a means of enabling individuals to develop their own capabilities and in doing so to maximise their potential.
Why do I enjoy coaching? You maybe be surprised to learn it has nothing to do with wanting to help people. What I enjoy most t is watching people help themselves.
My coaching process itself is framed around a ‘conversation’. Through strong listening skills, effective questions and the appropriate deployment of a range of concepts and techniques, I aim to raise your awareness, widen your perspective and increase your understanding about how you are engaging with your objectives. I aim to create a safe and trusting environment for you to freely explore the topic that you wish to discuss, providing supporting challenge, feedback and stimulation to your thinking process.
Coaching is powerful, fun and engaging. A truly fulfilling experience for everyone involved in the process.
Coaching can provide:
* New solutions to existing problems, generated by challenging a client’s thinking and encouraging creative responses.
* Greater self-awareness both of how individuals operate and the impact of this on others, together with a greater awareness of specific work- related issues and the factors which surround them.
* Clarity about individual roles and objectives and the creation of a personal learning and development plan to help achieve them.
* Success and enjoyment, which develop as coachees understand themselves and their challenges in greater depth, and grow in confidence in their ability to shape and influence their lives.
