Great athletes and business people have one thing in common. They they have coaches and mentors.
The benefits of having a coach or mentor are many and varied.
However good your current performance is, we can all, always improve. A good coach will challenge you, support you in the changes you need to make and provide you with opportunities to learn new techniques and approaches, and apply them in a practical, pragmatic fashion in your organisation.
Coaches don’t judge – we firmly believe that everyone is doing the best they are able to, with the experience they have and the information they have available to them.
I absolutely believe that people, unless coached, never reach their maximum capabilities
– Bob Nardelli, CEO, Home Depot
We create a supportive environment and our services are completely confidential, unless agreed otherwise. We also bring experience and knowledge from other organisations – sometimes in the same industry, but we also often find that there are many analogies from outside that can be applied far wider.
As competition intensifies, the need for creative thinking increases. It is no longer enough to do the same thing better… no longer enough to be efficient and solve problems
– Edward de Bono
Another key element that coaching provides is feedback. Whatever our level is in our organisation, feedback is vital – from our managers, peers and team members. In addition to our own feedback as we see you interact with other people, and the decisions you make, we can also work with other people to provide you with further feedback to help you improve.
