One-to-one coaching helps you identify and commit to the actions which lead to professional and personal success. Team coaching and facilitation can help you and your leadership team capitalise upon each others’ diverse values and strengths for business success.
Coaching and facilitation is led by Katie Driver, a Certified Business Coach™ trained by the Meyler Campbell Business Coach Programme and the School of Coaching. Katie also has wide experience of creating and delivering training events and motivational talks, as well as facilitating meetings large and small.
Individual coaching can help you unlock your potential and maximise your performance. Coaching stimulates your thinking, bringing you clarity about your strengths and circumstances and what you want to achieve. It allows you to create or restore connections to your own purpose and values and to the people you need to work with, and to find the habits of thinking and action which sustain progress and growth.
Coaching can be especially helpful at times of major challenge such as promotion or a significant change of responsibilities, helping you think things through properly and commit to purposeful action. It can also be useful if you are becoming frustrated with a lack of progress or want to revitalise your working life.
Your preferences, strengths, values and ways of working will determine how the coaching relationship develops to secure the changes you seek. Personal reflections or information from psychometric tests and feedback can provide insights to draw upon. If you wish, the Thinking Alliance can collect feedback on your behalf from people in your organisation. We will also talk about how to make the most of the people around you to support your change, and discuss tasks between sessions that can anchor the changes you seek in your day to day work.
As is often the case, the more you put into the coaching relationship, the more you will gain. If you are ready to do some deep thinking and to commit to the actions you uncover, then coaching with the Thinking Alliance could help you bring about powerful changes in your working life.
Whether you come to coaching privately or through your employer, the Thinking Alliance can help. Conversations are always conducted with complete discretion. If updates are required for your funding organisation, the format, frequency and boundaries will be agreed in advance.
Team coaching and facilitation can help unleash the collective thinking power of your people and capitalise on the diversity which is proven to lead to business success.
Team coaching enables each person to see more clearly their own strengths and working preferences, whilst also understanding better how others’ experiences and approaches add further value. Teams can explore how to handle differences and work together so that they bring out the best in each other and for the business. The Thinking Alliance can also offer soft skills workshops and propose psychometric tests to deepen your teams’ ability to collaborate and work consistently at a high level to meet your business goals. For example, we can help your team to develop their listening skills or get better at giving and receiving feedback.
Facilitation allows you to bring an external perspective to an event, perhaps including a motivational session, prompting new and better thinking and increasing engagement. We can provide independent chairmanship for a difficult meeting, or lead an event so that you can focus on the discussion without the distraction of managing it as well.
