I help my clients understand and interpret their roles, what needs fixing, their responsibilities and how can they bring a better person to the team. I address how they can operate with integrity and honesty as well as how to create higher functioning teams, which in turn generate a more successful organisation. I do more than fix problems; I help clients change and develop themselves.
I offer a number of focussed programmes
I work both face to face and over Skype or zoom, depending on location. Most programmes run over a 3-6 month period, often this is extended. Some clients have an open ended contract. Team coaching follows the same timelines and is face to face and sometimes with a colleague.
I work with adults of all ages from 22 to over 60, at differing stages of their careers and across a wide spectrum of roles and industries; and not just managers or ‘execs’.
Needless to say many of the questions, worries and anxieties are universal. Worries about job security is not uncommon and not surprising with Brexit-driven stagnation and the devaluation of sterling.
Younger clients are fearful of not being able to get into the job market, others want to discuss options or professions and want neutral guidance and feedback. The more confident or robust types are bolder about moving from one zero hours contract to the next. Others are overwhelmed by the vast numbers of ‘gigs’ online which are invariably and sadly mostly out of date or closed already. At the later stages adults feel threatened by ageism; older employees often feel unwanted and can feel sidelined. However these behaviours differ wildly from job to job and with different employers, however there are website like Restless to help tackle agism.
Between the young and the old generations is the where I do the bulk of my work. My approach is very similar, the problems may seem larger, such as how do we change culture across an Ambulance Service but my role is fundamentally the same: coaching clients through change, be it: corporate difficulties, culture, performance, challenges, take-overs, redundancies, technology, hiring and firing, growth and legislation etc.
My coaching is about the individual being able to contribute the best of themselves to their work; to learn, to be heard, to participate, to grow, to belong, to be supported, to do their best, to develop, to withstand change and threats, to be flexible and robust, to take responsibility, to be confident and ultimately to gain satisfaction. As well as creating positive team cultures because this is also how our organisations succeed.
