“Coaching is unlocking a person’s potential to maximise their own performance; helping them to learn rather than teaching them.” Timothy Gallwey
If you believe you’re under-achieving there is something you can do about it – hire a good coach.
You were born to make the most of innate skills and abilities. The education system often fails to develop your talents. But you know, deep inside, that you have a lot to offer. The challenge is, “how do you reveal your talents and capitalise on them?”
Working with a life coach is a very private experience. The purpose is to explore your thoughts, feelings and abilities so as to find the combination that will unlock the potential that is uniquely yours. Then you will be released to get cracking with your life.
“Coaching doesn’t change people, it enables them to discover their own resources so they can make the changes themselves.” Insoo Kim Berg
The purpose of our corporate coaching is to develop the confidence, communication and leadership skills of the individual manager.
We have worked successfully with many large and medium sized corporations. These include: Elsevier, P&O, Yves St.Laurent, Dell, Xerox, Relx Group, GMAC, Portafina and Knauf.
Most of our coaching is carried out face-to-face either physically or using online video. The normal length of a programme, which has proven to be highly effective for the past 25 years in producing quick results is, 10 x 50-minute weekly or fortnightly sessions.
When we are asked to coach several people within one corporation we run “clinics”. The corporation provides a meeting room for the required number of 50-minute sessions and each candidate has an appointment with the coach. See: what clients say.
“I’d just like to say a massive thank you, it feels like I’ve made some real head way (& yes I appreciate it is an on-going & continuous process) but I feel a lot better equipped to handle things now. You’ve also been great to work with and I have the utmost respect for you.” Leanne Toward, Marketing Manager
A less expensive alternative to our full 12-session face-to-face coaching programme is for 3 x 50 minute online video sessions backed up by 91 days of continuous self-discovery e-mail coaching.
“I am very grateful for your coaching over the last three months. It was a journey which I thoroughly enjoyed. Sometimes it was difficult to fit in the daily emails among all the busyness but as I took time to write – it always turned out to be a rewarding experience.
“Thank you for your patience, the experiences from your own life that you shared and the generous supply of quotes and teachings. Thank you for being there for me every day and always ready to guide me with your kind advice and direction. I am sure that I will miss your emails, but I agree that it is best to take some time to integrate the changes that I created for myself based on your coaching.
“I believe the format of the course was very clever, it worked for me. Working with the questions and sending emails every day has made me constantly “in the programme” throughout the three month period. It was an intense training even though it did not feel that way.
“There were many benefits, learnings and realisations for me, but I believe that the main benefit is what I feel is the permanent change in my underlying state – a subtle shift from being stressed and angry to being more internally relaxed. I am very grateful for this.”
Dorota Tsatsaris, Director Software Engineering, RBI
The big advantages of this programme are its immediacy and the fact that your coach gets to really know you and understand the way that you work and is therefore able to taylor the coaching very precisely to your needs.
About Our Coaches:
In my experience the best coaches are people who have experienced ups and downs in life and come through the obstacle course “scathed” but “better, wiser and more fulfilled as a result of their experiences”. They have learned techniques for self-understanding, for overcoming the fears that limit us, for discovering what is meaningful, worthwhile and valuable, and for setting and achieving goals.
Good coaches do not have an agenda or a proscribed way of coaching. Each client is a fresh page, a new challenge that requires a unique approach tailored to that person. This will be developed as the coaching progresses and will be developed from the client’s resources.
The aim is always the same, to provide you, the client, with a vision of your future and the means of making that vision your reality.
In order to be able to achieve meaningful goals in life you need to make changes in what you do. You need to learn how “to operate yourself”. Such profound learning is not going to happen overnight. You have been trying to master your thoughts and your emotions and make the most of your natural abilities for a lot of years. You have maybe read books and been on courses. And still you don’t have the answer. So, don’t expect an instant miracle from your coach. A good coach will help you move forward, but give your coach a chance and allow sufficient time. Coaching is very likely to prove helpful for you as it has helped many others – see what clients say.
