''Lives get busier by the day – or the hour. Just ‘doing the job’ is an ever-increasing challenge.''
Because you want your organisation and the people inside it to achieve more, but you’re not sure how?
Sometimes, organisations and individuals need a little help. Corporate structures become more complex. Expectations and pressures grow continually, at all levels. Lives get busier by the day – or the hour. Just ‘doing the job’ is an ever-increasing challenge. The ‘hard skills’ of constant professional development and delivery are daunting enough to keep up with.
Yet there is a growing sense of ‘something missing’; a feeling that we could be more effective as a whole organisation and as managers and leaders; that we could and should be achieving a greater return on the human capital that is our biggest asset.
"Creative Coaching exists to turn uncertainties, obstacles and frustrations into new organisational dynamics, personal skills, enhanced communication ability and real development as high performing organisations, leaders, managers and individuals."
Transform: “We need to be more collaborative and productive as an organisation” and “I want and need to perform more effectively as a leader”…
into: “We function more coherently as a unit with a shared sense of purpose” and “I understand my skills and strengths and I know how to use them to inspire myself and others”.
Creative Coaching exists to turn uncertainties, obstacles and frustrations into new organisational dynamics, personal skills, enhanced communication ability and real development as high performing organisations, leaders, managers and individuals.
We work in challenging situations across a wide spectrum of Organisational Development, Group and Team Facilitation, Executive Coaching, Senior Management and Board Development and 1 to 1 Coaching.
We work with a variety of techniques, such as neuro linguistic programming, transactional analysis, coaching methodologies, MBTI, Insights Discovery, improvisational theatre and psychological models. Importantly, we never shoehorn any solution into a problem. We seek to understand the driving needs of our clients and develop solutions that really will shift an issue for them. Work that counts is what is critical to us.
We work towards outcomes that overcome perceived personal limitations, team based disconnections and organisation-wide silos.
Our philosophy is simple and powerful: “No transactions only transformations”. We put it into action by applying our core beliefs: our greatest assets are our clients and their natural abilities; our greatest advantage is our team of passionate, proven and predictably successful coaching practitioners.
Wherever you are on your journey to real understanding of your aspirations and true development of your leadership skills and your organisation’s human talent, we can help.
Successful leaders understand that they cannot do everything themselves. To lead their team or company forward, they need to learn to rely on their people. It sounds easy, although in reality, letting go of something you are renown for doing and do so well, in fact probably better than anyone else - can be difficult. Right?
Systems psychologist David Kantor refers to delegation in his book, ‘Reading the Room: Group Dynamics for Coaches and Leaders’ as something to be mastered – an art rather than a process. There is a fine line between delegation, throwing work at people, and micromanaging them. The art is finding the balance in between.

Often when attempting to recognise or identify leaders there’s a desire to rely on classifications, job titles that contain manager, president, chief or director, or social roles that contain the word leader. The question is what comes first - the leader or the leadership skills and qualities? Are people put into leadership roles and then left to develop as leaders, or do they show leadership qualities and earn those roles?
