Thinking of Coaching as a way of Self-Development? What to Expect:
Coaching is not therapy, but it is a great way of creating a better understanding of ‘how you tick’. Traditional training courses are a highly effective way to update skills and knowledge and a great way of networking with similar people from outside of your organisation. Coaching works in a different, often deeper way. It develops you both in a professional and personal way:
What is Coaching?
- Coaching is based on a series of regular one-to-one sessions when you will meet with your coach to discuss in confidence your goals and agree your action plan
- It is about maximising your potential and the coach’s job is to help you to clarify your goals, objectives, aspirations and dreams and to work closely with you to implement your own effective solutions
- Your job is to be truthful, honest and open to change where applicable
Simply put, coaching focuses on future possibilities and not past mistakes
How long are Coaching sessions?
- Sessions are usually 1 to 2 hours long and take place usually 4 weeks apart so that you can practice what you have learnt and implement your actions
- Usually, sessions are completed within 6 to 9 months and can be extended beyond where necessary
What do you need to focus on?
Your leadership style
Your communication style
Enhancing your strengths
Addressing areas in your development plan
Your career goals
Your work/life balance
