 Transition Coaching – While the human ability to assimilate change is limited, our lives are surrounded by changes at work and home that may overwhelm us. Our coaches bring with them experience of change both at the organizational and personal level. Our Transition Coaching solutions help individuals and organizations increase resilience to effectively manage transitions and the resulting loss in business and personal productivity by:

  • Helping leaders reflect on their own needs and patterns of behaviour within the change and contemplate how they can be effective as well as maintain and promote the desired behaviours in their teams.
  • Challenging and supporting executives within a confidential and safe environment to allow them to bring forward their best thinking and anticipate and deal with the impact of change
  • Helping individuals deal with change in their personal lives and careers by increasing their awareness of underlying responses and reactions to change, helping them examine the existing situation, achieve clarity and generate options, goals and action plans to reach the desired new state.

Team Coaching helps a group become a team by revealing the latent dynamics and gaps in team functioning and helping build trust and openness. Team Coaching can be used for leadership teams, start-up teams, (cross) functional teams, project teams or any group that desires to move beyond their current abilities and self-imposed limits. We help teams reduce conflict and develop co-ordination and collaboration abilities to produce superior results by:

  • Focussing on member relationships, interpersonal dynamics and raising awareness of how each individual impacts the team
  • Facilitating the identification of common group behaviours, gaps in thinking and perception using powerful coaching questions and team assessment tools
  • Improving communication, rapport, shared understanding, and empathy

Creating high-performing, sustainable teams is the game-changer for organizations today. Our coaches bring understanding and experience of creating, evolving, managing and motivating teams along with our team coaching tools to help you take that step towards team excellence.

Leaders & Managers as Coaches – In today’s complex and rapidly changing work place, leading has increasingly become synonymous with inspiring, motivating and developing.  Leaders and Managers need coaching competencies to receive the best outputs from their teams.

What does our ‘Leaders & Managers as Coaches’ Program help leaders do differently?

  • Ask powerful questions to help employees find their own solutions Vs telling them what to do
  • Use a power base that is centred, inspiring & collaborative Vs a positional, authoritative power base
  • Tune in to a direct report’s agenda and recognize his or her motives. Align the direct report’s development needs with the organization’s needs VS focussing only on organizational needs.
  • Hold direct reports accountable for agreed-on action and foster independence & accountability Vs breathing down necks to get the job done
  • Conduct effective development conversations and provide feedback.
