Why Creative Coaching?
“There has never been more urgency - or more incentive - for individuals and organisations to discover and develop their real strengths.”
“True leaders don’t have followers or subordinates. They inspire other people to commit and to give of their best because they feel it’s the right thing to do.”
“What you do matters. How you do it is important. But WHY you do it is absolutely fundamental.”
Everybody at Creative Coaching believes passionately that organisations, leaders, teams and individuals have vast and often unrealised power to perform.
Helping people and organisations plug in to their true potential and achieve more in ways that amaze them, and those around them, is why we get out of bed in the morning.
Because we believe that when we identify and dismantle obstacles to high performance, excellence will follow.
Because we believe that people who are in ‘leadership roles’ today do have within them the capacity to become true leaders tomorrow.
Because we refuse to accept that low, or no collaboration between divisions, business units, teams and the individuals within them is the way life ‘has’ to be.
And because, even though there may be a history of goals failing to be reached, of poor communication or of under-delivery and wastage of resources, the future can be very, positively, different.
Because we know that, when we establish what the real dynamics are today, we can identify and overcome any gaps in ability to achieve positive change for tomorrow.
Because we know that, as we support, encourage and develop specific behaviours, talents and outlooks, the potential people had within them all along to lead and inspire becomes an active asset - to themselves and to their organisation.
As an organisation under pressure in a demanding environment, why should we spare resources for coaching? Because you have a unique opportunity to realise the true potential of your greatest asset: the talents of your people.
As a senior individual facing a tough working schedule, why should I make precious time for coaching? Because the time you spend understanding and unlocking your own communication and leadership skills will be hugely rewarded.
As professionals searching for an equally professional partner, why should we choose Creative Coaching? Because finding, realising and growing personal and organisational potential and performance is our passionate purpose in life.

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?
