What you do matters. How you do it matters even more. And why you are doing it is paramount.
''Tools and techniques are a valuable resource. But the real value lies in the experience, insight and vision of the practitioners who apply them.''
The Creative element in Creative Coaching does not mean that we approach each engagement without any framework or prior art. Effective coaching and organisational psychology owe a huge debt to past and current academics, clinicians and the thought leaders who have created so many influential techniques and approaches. Discover more about some of the thinkers and practitioners we admire and who have influenced us.
Because our engagements are all about people, we start as we mean to go on: by focusing on the human element. Typically, we will meet with a client to discover more about the issues they face and the way they currently feel about those issues.
Our experienced practitioners will quickly gain a sense of the approach that will likely be most productive. Everyone involved will draw conclusions about whether to go forward together, or even to recommend a different route with another resource. (We are always very honest about how we believe we can help or even if we are the right people to help.)
We respond creatively – explaining exactly what we believe the challenges and the opportunities are and how we propose to react to them. As you would expect, our response covers all the bases of chosen techniques and approaches, time, the practitioner profile we believe is right for the situation and the resources required.
Crucially, we also bring a vision of what we believe can be achieved. This will be specific to each unique situation. For us, past experience drives future originality. For our client, Creative Coaching delivers personal, bespoke expertise that leads to lasting positive change and sustainable advantages.

Well, an easy answer is leading with presence by thinking about it …

Schools are beginning to return (in Scotland), without much heed to what has been going on across the past few months it seems and speaking to some friends who are teachers, they feel ‘disposable’, uncared for and afraid.
I notice that I have low level anxiety when I am out in public, when people walk too close to me, don’t observe social distancing, slip their mask down from their nose in the shops (or off altogether) … these times have made me fearful. And it’s got me thinking about the word fear and what it means. What am I actually scared of?
