PERSONAL CHANGE : COACHING
Coaching is a valuable tool for learning tailored to your specific work requirements. A typical outcome for a client is an increase in self-awareness and greater choice over future actions, as well as improved understanding of others they work with.
Coaching can help you or one of your employees in a variety of situations. Some examples could be a desire to:
• Improve communication skills and influence
What does coaching involve?
1. Initial analysis
It may be helpful to share with me background information that is appropriate to the coaching outcomes e.g. CV, job description, recent appraisal or 360° feedback, and current work objectives.
As confidentiality is important in maintaining an effective coaching relationship, we need to agree how the company sponsor is to be kept informed of the process (e.g. date of next meeting) while maintaining confidentiality regarding the content of coaching discussions.
It can often be valuable to establish some of your personal profiles in the early stages of the coaching programme. These include Myers-Briggs (MBTI), values, strengths and interests inventory, and life balance.
My overall approach is to enable you, the client, to find your own solution to achieve the agreed outcomes. I will act as a catalyst to facilitate, challenge and support you in this. The format of any given session will be adapted accordingly, and also take into account your progress and current priorities.
3. Evaluation and follow up
