Coaching Services

Clear-thinking, expert, and practical support

From time-to-time employees face specific workplace challenges or transitions, such as stepping into a leadership role or returning from parental leave.

Timely, purposeful, and relevant coaching can boost confidence and self-awareness and strengthen leadership skills. Through impartial advice and guidance, we can help your employees develop the skills, behaviours, and mindsets they need to achieve their goals.

In this way, coaching can transform individual performance and organisational success.

1:1 Coaching (onsite and virtual sessions)

One-to-one coaching sessions offer the opportunity to work with an accredited coach to take a deeper look at challenges and work through issues constructively and confidentially.

Our coaches are experienced at working with Executive Board Members including CEOs, Senior Leadership team members, and Middle Managers to achieve their objectives through one-to-one leadership coaching sessions.

The coach will work with the employee to identify coaching objectives, understand the specific issues they’re facing, and build and implement a plan to overcome them.

Where appropriate the coach may work with the employee’s manager to ensure that goals are aligned, and the employee is supported to continue their journey after the sessions come to an end. Our coaches can work with employees on a short or long-term basis. We recommend 4-6 sessions to ensure a long-lasting positive impact.

Coaching Clinic Days

On a Coaching Clinic Day, an accredited coach will run numerous 1:1 coaching sessions with different employees. Many clients slot Coaching Clinic Days into longer-linked training programmes, to provide a time for reflection on the course content, consolidation of knowledge, and a space to work on specific problems employees are facing which may have been brought to light during the training programme.

This is a great, cost-effective option if you have more than one employee who is looking for support from a coach. Find out more about increasing return on investment with integrated coaching.

Here is an example of a linked leadership programme with coaching clinic days built in:

1:1 Training

Has an employee approached you after a training course and expressed a need for further tuition or a desire to dive deeper into the subject matter?

1:1 Training is a perfect fit for employees that would like to explore any of our BiteSize courses in more detail, with personalised help from a trainer. In a 1:1 dynamic, employees may feel more comfortable speaking up about the areas of the course they felt less confident in, so the trainer can work with them to ensure their understanding is sound and they have a plan to implement their new knowledge.

These sessions do not need to take place over the long term; some employees may only need one session to further explore the topic, others may require more.

Any of our experienced trainers can deliver 1:1 Training, and the trainer will be assigned based on the topic the employee is interested in exploring further.

Group & Peer to Peer Coaching

Do you have a group with a common challenge or are you looking to introduce coaching skills?

Learn More

Group or Team Coaching

Group coaching sessions are an opportunity for a group to take a deep dive on a topic of shared interest or relevance, or a common challenge they are facing. These sessions are also suitable for teams who may be adapting to change or taking steps to build a high-performance culture.

An accredited coach will work with a group of employees to develop solutions or identify and realise opportunities.

These sessions also provide an opportunity for the group to strengthen their relationships and create an environment for supporting and holding each other accountable. Our coach will work with the group to identify coaching objectives, understand the specific issues they’re facing, and build and implement a plan to overcome them. These sessions can be slotted into a training programme as an opportunity to share experiences and apply their learnings in the workplace.

Group coaching sessions take place over 2 hours and are suitable for up to 6 participants.

Coaching Circles or Peer to Peer Coaching

Coaching Circle Days are a great way to introduce coaching skills into an organisation. An accredited coach will work with a small group of employees who are usually peers to create a supportive and high-trust environment in which they can learn to coach each other. Members of the group can present real-life challenges they’re facing at work, and the coach will facilitate discussions to enable the group to explore the issues and practice their coaching skills on one another.

Like our Clinic Days, these days can be slotted into a training programme as an opportunity to share experiences and apply their learnings in the workplace.

Crucially, they provide an opportunity to be coached, understand the value of the coaching model, and for employees to grow confidence in their coaching skills. These sessions are excellent for those wanting to develop their coaching skills and complement our Coaching for Managers training course.

Coaching Circles take place over 90 minutes in groups of 4-6 participants, and up to 4 sessions can run in a day.
