Coaching solutions for the real-world conditions that prevail in business and the modern workplace. My focus is simple - targeted, bespoke executive, leadership and business coaching to turn conversations about possibilities and strategies into tangible action and results.
What is Coaching?
Coaching is about creating change. If there is no desire for change, then there is no need for a coach. The change might be big, something the whole world can see, or small adjustments to get ahead.
Some changes may be immediate and others will happen over the long term, as coaching shifts your trajectory by small degrees. Regardless, the aim is for enduring, positive, lasting change.
Coaching is about creating change, action and accountability.
A coach provides several crucial roles, including being an independent sounding board, someone who will challenge you and hold you accountable, and someone who will give an outside perspective to raise your self-awareness. Coaching will help compare the purposeful, authentic self you want to be with the person you're presenting to the rest of the world.
The focus of our coaching is on actionable insights, outcome-driven applications and the most productive ways to get results for you and your team.
Who needs Coaching?
In a similar way that an elite athlete is honed and fine-tuned by a personal trainer, an executive coach helps their client to achieve professional and personal ambitions by sharpening their performance. Coaching is about transformative development at the peak of performance. Going back to the athlete analogy, coaching's highest potential isn't taking people from bad to good. It's taking people from good to great and from great to excellent.
So to answer the question, who needs an executive coach? Those wanting to get great at something… Or at least that is the conclusion author and surgeon Atul Gawande draws in his widely viewed 2017 TED Talk.
How do we improve in the face of complexity? Well, Gawande studied this question with a surgeon's precision. The things he found to be key: having a good coach to provide a more accurate picture of our reality, to instil positive habits of thinking, and to break our actions down and then help us build them back up again.
"It's not how good you are now; it's how good you're going to be that really matters."
