What we do is ALWAYS shaped and driven by who we do it for.

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.

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?
