Coaching

EXECUTIVE COACHING AND MENTORING

Invest in yourself, your personal growth, your confidence and the clarity with which you see the road ahead. Empirical research has shown coaching to be particularly effective at clarifying goals, identifying strengths/weaknesses, improving relationships and growing confidence. Anecdotally, clients of ours have pointed to the time spent on self-analysis, goal identification and a logical interpretation of the pressures (often competitive pressures) they are experiencing, as the reasons they found coaching effective.

Motivation. This word is everywhere in our modern, highly advertised world. But, if lacking, where do we find it in ourselves, in our relationships, in our work? The London Practice coaches are a special breed of individual, and upon meeting them for the first time, you’ll see precisely why we feel they are the best in their field, especially when it comes to finding new motivations for their clients. 

Our experienced coaches are flexible, but focused in their programmes. Our aim is to quickly enable clients to reflect, and see the big picture; but also to find new ways to work on their personal growth. In some instances, our role is to improve behaviours so as to bring out the best in other relationships or dynamics (often team dynamics). These situations may have presented challenges to clients for many years, and so tackling them can be challenging, but is some of the most rewarding work we do. 

Performance: 70% of participants in coaching programmes report improved work performance, relationships, and more effective communication skills. 86% of companies report that they recouped their investment on coaching and more (source: ICF 2009).

Leadership and new responsibilities: Congratulations, you’re climbing the corporate ladder. Are you finding you have the skills to be assertive, deal with under performers or conflict, or have you really given yourself time to reflect on your new role and assumed responsibilities. So often we see exceptionally talented people promoted to leadership roles, but the weight of this new role brings about a need for new skills and working styles that one needs to develop and implement. We’re here to make that an effective and time efficient process. There are two options – coaching, whereby we provide the structure for you to develop the answers. Mentoring, on the other hand, is where clients seek a forum in which they can bounce ideas off an experienced and measured professional. 

How we work:

We typically meet with our clients face-to-face, however we can also work via Skype or telephone when meeting in-person is not possible. As well as individual sessions, we also offer coaching packages in blocks of 6, 9 and 12 sessions.

The Coaches Tool Kit

We often use practical exercises to highlight areas for reflection. In some cases we utilise psychometric testing to guide our sessions.
