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

  • Re-evaluate aspects of your life and get into action
  • Progress in your career and make the right changes
  • Get more of a work/life balance
  • Eliminate stress and anxiety
  • Improve stuck or stale relationships (partners, friends, children, colleagues)
  • Deal with unresolved issues
  • Increase vitality, happiness and peace of mind

It’s been nearly three years since I left the safety and comfort of routine office work to follow my dream of training for a new career as a health care professional. It’s been an exciting journey, but to a large extent marred by feelings of self-doubt: Can I really do this? Am I clever enough, confident enough, assertive enough? These are the questions which took me to Chantal’s event, ‘The Game of Success’, and after an amazing weekend of discovery and reflection I’m now left with no doubt that the answer to all these questions is most definitely ‘yes’. And why? Because I’m now able to realise that making it so is within my control. Those feelings of doubt were never dealt to me by an outside force. They’re my own doing and they’re my story. I wrote it, and I can re-write it … with whatever ending I choose!

This weekend has given me a valuable understanding which I know I can keep with me always, and use whenever life feels anything less than wonderful. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Chantal’s future events.”
