One to One Coaching
The value of one to one coaching continues to be recognised a vital factor in personal and organisational development. Research suggests that whilst training alone increases productivity by 22%, when combined with coaching, positive outcomes rise to 88%. Coaching provides an opportunity for individuals to explore alternative strategies and to challenge the status quo. This they can do in a “safe” environment with an experienced coach who will offer support and guidance whilst withholding criticism and judgement.
Our goal is to improve business results by getting your senior people to a high level of competence and leadership effectiveness. This is achieved by providing one-to-one coaching for senior executives over an extended period, normally a year. During this time, specific quantifiable goals determined by the needs of the individual and the company are striven for. These goals typically include:
- Developing greater flexibility in his/her leadership style
- Acquiring new knowledge and skills appropriate to their senior role
- Developing more mature and sophisticated ways of dealing with issues and challenges
- Enhancing their behaviours in line with the visibility and seniority of the role
The resulting improvement in the business performance and leadership effectiveness of the individual can also result in measurable return on investment for the company.
