Why use coaching?

Businesses are in constant change and people are now required to be more adaptable and flexible than ever before.

A climate of increased competition and flatter organisational structures is putting increased pressure on individuals to keep pace and stay ahead.

Coaching is a powerful way to help people achieve their greatest potential. It’s now a commonly used development strategy within many of the world’s leading businesses.

Companies like Ernst and Young have created a coaching culture, where senior managers are developed to act as in-house coaches. This is a major trend within organisations today.

Many high performers get coaching to increase expertise, expand skills or break new ground. A great coach will often see what may be hidden from your own view. It’s like having your very own ‘blind spot’ mirror!

Coaching is effective as a stand alone development approach and when used in combination with other learning and development strategies.

Individual needs will often surface during a group session and these may best be served through 1-2-1 work. Likewise, coaching can be an excellent pre-cursor to group sessions.

Our Coaching Philosophy

We believe in honest and transparent dialogue from the outset of any coaching programme.

We will not take on any coaching assignments that are part of a strategy to ‘manage someone out’. We work with individuals and organisations who want to genuinely develop and expand the range of possibilities for others (or themselves).

The Coaching Contract

Our process: 3 C’s for a successful coaching programme;

Clarify:

Get full understanding of what needs to be achieved so we can determine if;

a) coaching is the right intervention
b) we are the right coaching partner for you

Choose:

Chemistry meetings allow the ‘coachee’ to choose their coach and visa versa. Even when the coach has been commissioned by someone else, we believe it’s vital for the individual receiving the coaching to be part of that decision.

Contract:

Where there is another stakeholder involved, we create a three way dialogue between coach, stakeholder and coachee.

We agree a feedback loop and other relevant protocols for all stages of the coaching programme.

We discuss and finalise our Coaching Contract which includes confidentiality issues.

*stakeholder in this context means the person who has commissioned the coaching to take place

I have been working with Chantal for a few months now with great effect to my personal & working life. During our sessions, Chantal completely turned around how I was approaching work & my team, enabling me to see the role that I was playing in my own fortunes & the control I could exert over them. The results have been extraordinary & I’m thrilled to say that 4 months on, I and my team are working more effectively & efficiently than ever before. I can’t speak highly enough of Chantal.

One of the key reasons I take so much out of our sessions together, is that Chantal doesn’t dictate tools & models for you to try to remember as so many other courses do. Our sessions were always led by me & my thinking, & questioning from Chantal that gave me the potential to think differently. And you know what, we laugh every time.”
