Our Coaching Approaches

We apply a combination of coaching approaches (Vision Coaching, Cognitive Coaching and Positive Psychology) We tailor our approach depending on the company, project, group or the team.

Vision coaching

We develop a partnership and draw on elements of feedback, reflection and two-way conversations to motivate, inspire, encourage, and empower clients

Cognitive Coaching

We explore grounded and practical understanding of language, body and emotion as well as conversations for behavioural and cultural transformation. We propose that without relevant emotional learning, lasting change does not take place.

COACHING PHILOSOPHY

Our coaching philosophy is centered on providing a standard of care that enables the coach and client to create a collaborative space for trust and personal growth.

Whilst each coaching conversation is unique our philosophy is built upon the need to show up in the same way for every client.

Coaching conversations are approached with curiosity whilst ensuring that values are respected throughout the coaching process.

As a result, we adhere to ICF core competencies and abide by the ICF Code of Ethics.

Learning Goals

Our training provides specific techniques and tools which can be applied in situations to support meaningful change. Examples of learning goals include:

Building confidence

Developed through inquiry and asking powerful questions that provide the impetus for clients to note their achievements, successes, positive qualities, good deeds, and ways they positively impact others.

Undertaken through empowering conversations focused on proactively creating the future. Ultimately coaches support clients to create a visualisation.

Adopting an experiential process for building self confidence through devising a coaching plan that results in measurable achievements and self-affirming interactions

Self-awareness

Techniques include exploring a client’s values and then considering how the clients’ choices align with those values. In the course of the coaching conversation a client should become aware of differences between their values and realities, and is thereby empowered to make different choices and plan appropriately.

Self awareness is also enabled through assessments that may focus on values, personality characteristics, or specific skills. A coach works with the client to make sense of the feedback from the assessments and create an action plan for working on opportunity areas.

Transformation

This occurs from the inside out. Through reflective inquiry, clients can look at their beliefs as if they were laid bare before them. From this position, they can examine the gaps in their thought process.
