“All appears to change when we change.” Henri-Frederic Amiel
Coaching is about facilitating change. When life is not working the way you want it to be, then it is time for a change. Whether you are an Executive unhappy because of the stress at work, or an Individual having difficulty achieving goals, or a Team frustrated with their performance, coaching can help. If you are ready and willing to change contact us.
Business executives these days are confronted with a changing, highly demanding, and sometimes hostile, environment. Whether at executive or board level, we work to enhance and emphasise leadership skills and effectiveness within the organisation’s culture, structure, mission, and focus.
Today, individuals, whether from an organisation or within their own lives, are facing more and more stress and anxiety. Often we get stuck in a “can’t see the forest for the trees” scenario. The speed with which life and change occurs these days sometimes makes it difficult to make sense of what it is we need to do, or not do, to best support ourselves. Even if we make sense of what is needed, finding the time or where to go to be supported or learn new ways can be daunting. It becomes more and more difficult to grasp what capabilities and behaviours need to be developed or explored in order to achieve desired success and outcomes.
The purpose of supervision is to support the supervises professional and personal practice, health and wellbeing. In doing so, it is to ensure that the clients of the supervisee are also well supported and receive the best possible service and development of their own experience.
The supervision process supports the supervisee’s reflective practice. This stimulates the supervisee’s ongoing learning and development and helps to maintain and raise quality standards professionally. This is achieved by using the supervisee’s own experiences with clients as one method of reflecting on skills, competencies and behaviours, and through this, to support the supervisee to develop their own “internal supervisor”, becoming more proficient at reflection “in action” versus “on action”.
Coach and clinical supervision provides a place to review and uncover potential ethical issues and therefore ensure the supervisee’s clients are well supported and served. It also provides a safe and confidential space for the supervisee to explore their practice and to uncover any unconcious behaviours or biases that may get in the way of being the best you can possibly be for your client
The executive team is the embodiment of the organisation’s ethos. They are the culture example for the company and the staff. In today’s ever changing business environment it can be difficult to display the common culture, goals and values of the company, yet it is even more important that the executive team model as consistently as it can that which you want evoked throughout the organisation .
Mentoring, particularly in its traditional sense, enables an individual to follow in the path of an older and wiser colleague who can pass on knowledge, experience and open doors to otherwise out-of-reach opportunities.
Working in groups or teams can be an extremely useful, and most effective way to learn, share, and experience new perspectives. It can provide an increased consciousness of what may limit us in our job performance, careers, and relationships; and of what we do that may be most useful but that we take for granted or are even unaware.
From a young age most of our learning and experience happens in groups. Our earliest experiences in life occur in our family group; followed by school, community, and social. Much of what we learn in these early years continues to be what we use unconsciously as our “relationship road map” wherever we work in groups or teams as adults.
