Coaching aims to enhance one’s performance at work. Hence staff become more competent and confident in their job, improving efficiency and morale.
The coach’s main role is to guide the coachee through this learning process. An area for learning is identified. We then collaboratively explore the challenges in this area, identify strengths which could support the individual on this issue, generate a step-by-step way forward, and assess how this plan is working, revising as necessary. We recommend a final meeting, a few months later, so that we can discuss how the person’s new skills can be strengthened even further.
Coaching is not counselling. However it utilises several counselling elements, such as active listening, and the crucial value of developing a positive rapport between coach and coachee. Through coaching, the coachee identifies personal strengths they can utilise better, and learns new skills, so that they may work more effectively.
Our coaching sessions use psychological theories and skills, including goal-setting theory, positive psychology, mindfulness, and motivational interviewing.
Areas which lend themselves well to coaching include:
- Supporting and motivating your team;
- Becoming a more effective manager;
- Developing team dynamics that support efficient working;
- Effectively leading team meetings;
- Conducting difficult conversations (e.g. role changes, certain performance reviews);
- Bringing your team on board during a time of change.
