If you are running your own business, or managing a team, you can sometimes get mired down in detail and lose sight of the big picture.
Coaching provides a supportive and confidential opportunity to discuss day-to-day business challenges as well as future plans. Coaching can reveal choices, identify strengths and barriers and encourage personal responsibility for change. It enables individuals to become more authentic leaders of themselves and of others.
A series of one-to-one coaching session with a trusted ‘thinking partner’ can help you to explore issues or situations that are getting in the way of your peace of mind at home, or at work.
Whether you would like to define new career goals, find a better life/work balance or develop your ability to cope with anxiety and stress, coaching can help. Your coach will stimulate your thinking, providing supporting and sometimes challenging feedback, and help build awareness for action, transformation and change.
Coaching support is increasingly being seen as part of part of a strategy to keep individuals and teams engaged and motivated. Your investment in them shows commitment to their continued growth and development.
The future of the workplace is being shaped by those who entered it in the last decade, or who are preparing to do so now. Attracting, developing and retaining young talent has never been more important. Louise is a coach tutor for young PR apprentices through skills provider JGA Group and much of the focus of the Step Up programme is aimed at equipping the next generation of leaders with the skills they need to move into more senior roles.
Life in the workplace can be tough, and group coaching can be a powerful and cost-effective tool to build resilience and improve performance.
Bringing coaching conversations into a small group context provides a confidential environment in which experience can be shared, goals can be set and progress measured. Participants learn from the wisdom of the group and build support networks which are often as important as the interaction with the coach.
