A professional coach is a catalyst for performance and professional growth. They’ll offer both support and challenge, creating the conditions for you to do your best thinking. Each coaching conversation will enable you to take some action that is aligned with who you are as a person and what you want to achieve. Coaches typically have a wealth of experience and knowledge, but their role isn’t to tell you what to do. They provide insight and feedback, build your awareness, and provide whatever support you need to enable you to resolve your challenges, take action, and drive up your own performance. We offer a full spectrum of coaching services including:
We know that the founder journey is littered with big challenges – from fundraising to leading people to co-founder relationship grumbles and many more besides. Unless you are a serial founder, you might find yourself ‘in at the deep end’ frequently, with little prior deep experience of running a business, but with limited people to turn to for support, challenge and guidance (who don’t have some kind of vested interest in your organisation’s performance). A professional coaching partner will offer both support and challenge, being a thinking partner for you, and creating the space for you to do your very best thinking.
Every founder’s needs are different, and they can often evolve over time. We believe it’s important not to be too purist about coaching for founders, but to truly partner with you to work out what you need, and how best to provide that for you. There are times when we find ourselves:-
For organisations wishing to offer short coaching support to a broader range of staff, we can operate a ‘coaching clinic’ approach, whereby an individual qualified coach would work with multiple staff members over the course of a day at your premises or online. We also often offer coaching clinics to accompany our other development programmes – supporting the further embedding of skills, capabilities and mindset.
Our coaching packages are flexible to suit the coaching goals, budget, style and level of the coachee. We work to match the coach with the coachee carefully and evaluate the impact of the coaching on results. We only work with fully qualified coaches, who are in regular supervision and committed to their continuing professional development and growth.
This varies widely from one client to the next, depending on the goals set and the effort put in to achieving them by the coachee. For our longer coaching assignments, we have a measurement methodology to take stock of the coachee starting point and measuring change over time. Typically, coaching can be expected to deliver positive change in areas such as behaviour at work, leadership capability, influence, commercial performance, engagement and satisfaction at work, and clarity on goals, aspirations and development. Rest assured, we’re committed to delivering results.
