Seek, Know, Grow
In the past 10 years there has been an increasingly significant interest in coaching.
Coaching has grown rapidly due in part to the ever-increasingly complex and demanding lives we lead and the reduced dependency and access to traditional forms of support.
Within organisations coaching has taken a more dominant role as a means of developing personal leadership, increasingly required as a key competitive advantage.
Not only are senior leaders retaining coaching services but those responsible for the management and performance of others are learning coaching skills in order to obtain the highest performance from their teams.
Our Seek, Know, Grow transformational coaching programme enables individuals to reach for and realise their full potential; to experience the positive impact of making significant changes to improve health and quality of life
Coaching augments traditional management techniques to empower and enable individuals. It helps morale, improves productivity and supports personal development.Examples of our Seek, Know, Grow coaching programme:-
A successful HR professional from a global company knew that his department was undergoing a restructure. This seems to be a common theme with senior executives.
This restructuring had given this individual the opportunity to review where he was in life so we took a good look at what he wanted, now and in the next 10 years which would take him up to state retirement age. This in depth review revealed that he had a passion for helping people achieve their best potential and helped him to realise this was lacking in his current role and would be non-existent after the restructuring that was taking place. Our sessions together focussed on what changes he needed to make to ensure his passion in supporting others was the main theme in his professional life for the next 10 years. The upshot was that he negotiated a voluntary redundancy package with his company that would release him from the organisation in 18 months time and during that time he would be supported to gain a qualification in leadership coaching so that he could leave his company and set up his own business.
This glide path gave him the opportunity to build up a financial buffer for when he left his role and the training he did whilst still employed enabled him to start his practice immediately.
Another individual was a successful entrepreneur in the financial sector. Whilst he was fulfilled in his life – his role gave him professional worth, and a great standard of living for his family, his fitness levels were good and work life balance worked for him.
However he had an underlying desire to give something back – especially to the place where he grew up. Our work focussed on what this would look like and how he would go about making it happen. The sessions identified that he wanted to be an ‘influencer’. He realised that he couldn’t undertake all of the project himself and he set in motion a number of activities that would take him to his end goal over a 12 month period. This process gave him an enormous sense of achievement and impacted in many areas of his life.
