Coaching

Coaching provides clients with a confidential, independent sounding-board to explore the challenges and complexities of their roles, develop and maintain their self-awareness and confidence, and bolster their personal resilience.  

Our coaching generates practical solutions which enable clients to rise to the challenges of their business environment and sector, improve their business performance and manage themselves and their teams so they thrive personally and professionally.
 
We understand the challenges and the pressures that leaders and senior professionals and executives face. We are engaged by organisations to work with their key people and also by individuals wishing to work on particular issues outside the workplace. Our work is always confidential and our engagements are always conducted with the required level of discretion.

How Our Coaching Works

We work with clients from a range of sectors, including professional services, financial services, corporate and not-for-profit.  Every coaching programme is carefully tailored to meet the needs of the individual in alignment with the needs of the organisation: this maximises the value to both.  

Clients generally have six to eight coaching sessions, but it is not unusual for coaching engagements to be renewed and some very senior clients prefer an open-ended arrangement.  Each programme is structured to reflect the client’s goals, circumstances and timeframes.  Sessions typically last around two hours and generally take place monthly in the client’s offices or in meeting rooms in Cambridge or central London.

Before we begin any coaching programme we ensure that the chemistry is right, and if it isn’t we will suggest other coaches.  If the chemistry is right, we generally have a three-way meeting with the client and their line manager and/or someone from their HR function.  Once the coaching engagement begins, the content of the sessions is completely confidential.  Information or opinions will only be given to a line manager or to HR with the client's express consent.

At the end of each coaching programme a review takes place to assess and evaluate the coaching outcomes against the initial coaching goals.
