Mentoring and Coaching Support

Your challenge for tomorrow: “Do, Delegate or Ditch?”

Mentoring and Coaching are key tools for visionary employers who recognise that making simple investments in staff development helps to spark creative energy and retain key staff, empowered for new challenges. We help clients to evaluate their work and life balance in a more efficient way and help them to frame the pressures of increasing workload and decide what is theirs to complete and what should be the priority and responsibility of others.

One-to-one support allows staff the opportunity to revisit unfulfilled or incomplete objectives and increases their resilience, motivation and ability to embrace challenge usually in 2 to 3 sessions.

Mentoring is a process which has learning and development as its main goal. Using an experienced mentor is like having a professional sounding board to help mentees set long term goals and strategies. Effective mentoring helps mentees critically reflect and build the visionary capability to perform at the highest possible level, exploring their career and personal development.

Coaching can be a more short term process and is invaluable in education and health and social care arenas to maximise the skill base of a member of staff or a team. Coaching offers an optimistic view towards people and focuses on increasing capability and maximising capability. Effective coaching raises confidence and allows more objective and strategic approaches to personal leadership, management and behavioural styles.
