Coaching is about unlocking a person’s potential to maximise their performance. It is helping them to learn and develop rather than teaching them and is essentially a series of conversations the coach has with an individual to aid personal development.
Our approach works by focusing on an individual’s strengths and how they can use these qualities to implement control, confidence and commitment in their lives to achieve an outstanding future. Our coaches will establish a relationship of openness and trust by identifying outcomes, goals and a pathway to achievement using a programme of structured tools and techniques developed from the world of elite level performance.
Why do people have coaching?
People enlist the services of a coach because they want to improve their situation and achieve their goals. A skilled coach uses a combination of observation, questioning, listening and feedback to create a conversation rich in insight and learning.
Self-belief, self-motivation, choice, clarity, commitment, awareness, responsibility and action are the products of coaching. AWARENESS & RESPONSIBILITY are the two most common attitudinal factors in achieving excellence. The mind is key: ‘…the opponent within one’s own head is more formidable than the one the other side of the net.’ (Timothy Gallwey, The Inner Game).

“What I have valued the most is the honesty of our discussions, without agenda or politics, simply discussions where I have been able to face the true facts of my development needs and most importantly my strengths.”
