Optimising performance and potential through individual development of executives, leaders and managers.

Coaching is a collaborative partnership designed to help people develop their skills, performance, capabilities and wellbeing, and achieve valued professional or personal goals. A powerful and proven method for optimising performance, learning and development, coaching offers confidential, one-on-one support to accelerate the journey toward leadership excellence and success.

Positive coaching approach

Our experienced, qualified coaches draw on their senior leadership, learning and development experience, wide industry exposure and knowledge of positive psychology, emotional intelligence and neuroscience. They apply a positive coaching approach to build people’s awareness, strengths, resources and toolkit to be exceptional leaders and positive influencers within their organisations and networks. Depending on the needs of the people they coach, they may draw on frameworks and techniques to set goals, clarify values, manage priorities, manage emotions, improve relationships and communication, and increase optimism and wellbeing at work and home.

Organisations typically engage coaches to:

  • realise potential in high performers
  • facilitate career transitions and develop leadership skills
  • act as an objective sounding board for organisational dynamics
  • enhance team interactions
  • address derailing behaviour
  • achieve work life balance
  • increase resilience, engagement and wellbeing.

Coaching interventions have also been shown to increase the effectiveness of leadership development and training initiatives by up to 87 percent. A one-on-one coaching program can help embed the emotional intelligence skills, positive psychology tools and neuroleadership capabilities people learn in our training and development programs.

Recent research outlines real benefits and tangible, observable positive outcomes of coaching. In a study conducted among HR professionals responsible for over 15 million dollars of spend in coaching, outcomes such as greater self-understanding, confidence and leadership capability were highlighted.

For individuals:

  • Clearer understanding of themselves and their professional performance
  • Improved communication skills and ability to engage others
  • Greater resilience and robustness
  • Stronger relationships with managers, reports and peers
  • Better decision-making skills
  • More self-confidence, authority and strength as a leader
  • Increased motivation and fulfillment
  • Clearer career vision, planning and action
  • More strategic perspective

For organisations:

  • Capability building and professional development of the talent pool
  • Talent retention and morale
  • Effective leadership
  • Team cohesion
  • Cultural change
  • Performance management
We use valid and evidence-based instruments to measure and develop people’s emotional intelligence, strengths and leadership capability. These are geared to assess people positively so they feel confident of their strengths and capacities, and ready to stretch and develop further. When used with coaching, results are amplified. People reflect on their personal abilities and potential for development and take action.
