''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.
How does this work? How do I work? Because I’m not sure I know who I am anymore!
That’s seemingly a daft statement because obviously I do know who I actually am. What I really mean is, in this new world where things are opening up, the ‘rules’ are murky, Covid cases are increasing and yet we are being given greater and greater freedom, I am feeling confused, agitated, at times anxious and I am not entirely certain I know how to behave. Is it OK to hug our family and friends? Is it OK to pass the salt at the dinner table? Do I pick up all our glasses from the waiter’s tray or let others take their own drink? Did I remember to sanitise my hands before I touched the steering wheel after I’ve been shopping?

Thank you Lisa Malcolm for the provocation to write more about how to give good feedback – here are some of my thoughts, although I am sure you (and others) will have more to add …
First, all feedback will provoke a reaction. For example, Lisa commented on one of my LinkedIn posts, talking about the importance of giving feedback, suggesting that I (someone) talk more about how to give it, acknowledging that we all know it’s needed.
