Executive Coaching & Mentoring

Executive Coaching is at its most effective when used to help individuals in any kind of business to address specific personal development issues; and/or to prepare them for taking on a particularly challenging work role or project. It is especially appropriate for those in senior positions who have little time and may experience some isolation at the top of their business or profession.

Coaching is driven by the needs of the client, in particular the goals defined at the beginning of the process. It is about helping individuals to achieve their full potential and to deal with or instigate change.

Examples of specific benefits include:

 •  preparation for role/career changes
 •  managing stress, change, conflict or crisis
 •  enhancing personal impact and performance
 •  planning the next step in career development

Mentoring represents a different kind of journey for the client as distinct from coaching. It offers a client an opportunity to problem solve or share new ideas with a neutral third party who has some knowledge of and empathy with their business environment. This can be a valuable process, producing fresh insights and powerful thinking, driven by the needs of the client.
