How long does a coaching or mentoring relationship usually last?2019-01-23T14:44:26+00:00

We work with people for a minimum of six months, with a typical relationship lasting a year. We aim to deliver lifelong change and this cannot be achieved in a matter of weeks.  Personal goals need to be identified and the appropriate actions have time to bed in and results assessed.

What is the difference between coaching and mentoring?2019-01-22T12:40:31+00:00

In simple terms, coaching is about an individual being given the space and support to determine their own solutions and actions. A mentor is there to provide an additional layer of guidance and advice, as an industry-expert or using their considerable business experience.  Each coaching relationship is unique and the right level of support and balance between the two approaches can be agreed on that basis.

Why is coaching a good option for people in my team?2019-01-22T12:41:15+00:00

Coaching provides bespoke support for people in the areas where they need it the most. In contrast to traditional training programmes, where one size had to pretty much fit all, coaching allows you to focus efforts on what is important to each person.  For example, you may want to improve interactions between team members.  For one person, the coaching would help to improve their confidence and ability to present ideas to the group.  For another person, coaching could draw out the realisation that listening and working in a more collegiate way could be the priority and require behavioural change.
