Creative Coaching Individual Organisational Health

“Every level of human endeavour – no matter how many people it involves – can only succeed if all those people are engaged, activated and playing fully to their strengths.”

Context is everything. That’s why we will work closely with you to establish, quickly, how we believe we can work most productively. But our experience has shown that there are “pain points” that recur within organisations. And these pain points can be addressed effectively through established techniques.

Pain Point - “Our Board of Directors needs more visible direction” Text Open

Approach: Board Development - building C-level connectivity and effectiveness, clarifying strategy and unifying non-executive and executive functions to enable productive conversations internally and powerful communication to the outside world.

Pain Point - “I need to make the transition from Manager to Leader” Text Open

Approach: Executive Coaching - one to one interventions, designed to identify personal aspirations, hidden strengths and attributes that need to be activated. The outcome is transformational change for individuals in the key areas of personal impact and persuasiveness, career transition, strategy clarification and communication, leadership skills enhancement, and the underlying personal confidence that supports all positive change.

Pain Point – “Our talent base needs the skills to cope with changing demands” Text Open

Approach: Group Development - transitional development for individuals in a group setting who are facing new demands and new contexts. Areas of focus include: defining a shared business or team purpose and constructing a strategy for delivery, improving personal impact, creating and delivering compelling communication, framing a career vision, focusing on personal performance development, coaching for leaders, delivering effective feedback and induction programmes.

Pain Point - “Our teams need to work as teams; the whole needs to be greater than the sum of the parts and the individual parts also need to be great!” Text Open

Approach: Team Facilitation - intact team work to build understanding and insight, connection and collective ambition, leading to effectiveness, high performance and assured delivery in critical situations.

Coronavirus, Depression, Mortality and Me…

This is difficult to write

I’ve had a tough few years…relationship break ups, international moves, disrupted business, the culmination of which landed me with depression for the second time in my life. A therapist once told me (in my first battle with this illness) that I was a high functioning depressive – because I could get up, get dressed, work, and appear to all intents and purposes like I was ‘normal’ (whatever that is). Certainly, I gave the impression of coping. Then, as now, though I have had an internal battle with why I should even bother to remain ‘here’ – on earth, alive…

How can I help?

It was a lie…

I was lucky growing up! I was taught from an early age that everyone matters. There was no prejudice in my home. We had friends visit and music played by people from all walks of life. This was in the 60s, 70s and early 80s. 

In the mid 70s I started secondary school. I went to a south east London comprehensive that had a fifty-fifty black/white mix of kids. I was surrounded by, and part of, a rich cultural heritage. I came to believe that this was a ‘normal’ representation of how life would be … I was wrong!
