How do I know you will be the right coach for me/ my team?
When you're looking for a coach either for yourself or for your team, it is important that you check their professional qualifications. As an ICF (International Coaching Federation) and EMCC (European Mentoring and Coaching Council) approved and qualified Practitioner Coach, both bodies Code of Professional Ethics are the backbone of my practice. The first step with any coaching relationship is to have a Chemistry Meetings, whereby you check if the relationship will work between coach and coachee, or coach and team leader/members. This typically is not a chargeable meeting and is vital to the success of any coaching assignment.
What is coaching ?
Coaching is a generative relationship between coach and coachee, coach and team, who work in partnership to uncover and attend to issues which may be preventing them from being the very best version of themselves.
Typically in one to one executive coaching, a coach is assigned to work with an individual who has identified areas (goals) which they wish to work on over a designated time period. It is not counselling, mentoring or consulting; it is a generative partnership whereby the coach walks beside the individual using a wide-ranging toolkit of competencies, skills and behaviours which encourage and empower the latent potential of the individual to step into their own power to succeed.
With teams, systemic team coaching works with both the team and the individual to improve their collective performance and how they work together, and also to develop their collective leadership to more effectively engage with all their key stakeholder groups to jointly transform the wider business. (Hawkins 2014)
Irrespective of the nature of the coaching assignment, I adopt a very holistic approach to coaching, drawing on my in-depth learning and understanding of systems theory, neuroscience, neurobiology (Heartmath), positive and behavioural psychology as well as personality preference styles.
