Increasingly more and more people are seeking one-to-one coaching at different stages in their careers.
Some people use coaching to help them address challenges in their work. Others because they feel they are not accomplishing all they are capable of, or wish to feel more confident in their work role.
What coaching achieves
Coaching can play a significant role in developing individual capacity and helping people and organisations to perform at consistently high levels.
It enables individuals to maximise their resources more effectively to tackle business challenges and achieve both corporate and personal goals.
It motivates them to develop new knowledge, insight and skills, as it provides the time and space to reflect, evaluate and address work-related issues more strategically.
Coaching is a highly effective method to support organisational development. Individual coaching with managers, in combination with other learning and development initiatives, is a very successful way to build strong management teams and increase organisational competence.
The jml coach
Our key objective working with a client is to help them focus in on what they most want to achieve. The jml coach is not there to tell a client what they should do but to help them to come up with their own solutions using their own analytical and reflective skills.
At jml we use a structured outcomes-led method to maximise the effectiveness of the coaching. It starts with an introductory session where the client identifies with the coach the areas they wish to explore. Expectations are clarified and goals and objectives are established. The content of a coaching session will also respond to the immediate needs and circumstances of the client.
Coaching is not an end in itself but an ‘enabler’ to ensure that ‘things’ are achieved. Coaching within organisations, in common with any other type of intervention such as training, should show an impact. Once the client has identified what they want to achieve, objective measures are then identified to assess effectiveness.
We employ very experienced and rigorously trained coaches and actively support coach supervision to ensure consistently high standards of provision.
Growing your senior team
Individual coaching with senior managers, in combination with senior team development workshops, can be a highly successful way to build a strong management team and increase organisational competence.
The combination of individual support and high quality in-house training is a powerful tool in growing your own senior management capability – it really delivers.
