Coaching approach

One-to-one coaching is particularly effective for the development of management and leadership skills because each person is different. ‘One size fits all’ training courses can be very useful in transferring the basic principles and techniques of management and leadership but everyone then needs to apply that knowledge to their own situation. This is where coaching comes in. By working with an executive coach who has both relevant organisational experience and coaching skills the executive can build on their own unique strengths and address their own unique needs. By embarking on a learning and development journey the executive can grow their self-awareness and form up a personalised action plan for change. The coach will then support and challenge them to follow through on their plan. Coaching increases self-awareness and awareness of others, fosters shifts in perspective, promotes fresh insights, provides new frameworks for looking at opportunities and challenges, and inspires and informs future actions.
