What is
coaching?

 

Coaching is a process which enables your people to unlock their potential; maximising performance and fulfilment.  It is an equal partnership based on the understanding that the coachee already has the skills, knowledge, creativity and ideas within them. The process involves powerful conversations designed to uncover and break through unhelpful thinking, limitations and behaviours and to identify and access positive and empowering resources.

Coaching encourages self-discovery and offers the opportunity to gain clarity of thought and challenge beliefs and perspectives. In collaboration we explore and expand on the coachee’s possible solutions, action steps, goals and outcomes.

Through the coaching process we:

  • Actively listening to what the individual is saying (and not saying)

  • Hold up a mirror; reflecting back what we notice

  • Ask powerful questions to help generate clarity, insight and solutions

  • Draw on thinking and resources to deliver success

  • Agree clear and structured outcomes aligned with your organisation’s values and goals

  • Support and challenge – building insight, knowledge and understanding

  • Provide a mechanism for accountability
