Aren’t the fees rather expensive?
Nobody really wants coaching – they want results. Coaching is only worth considering when you are looking for significant changes in your work and personal life. If you are, then the returns are usually many times the cost, represent excellent value for money and a step change in your life.Once we feel we there is a good match between coach and client and that we can help, we offer a range of options designed for different needs. Please call 020 8286 4772 to book a half hour exploratory conversation

How do our Business Coaching Services work?
Our consultants work in partnership with our clients to create programmes that deliver lasting change while retaining sufficient flexibility to respond to short term needs. The main steps are:1. We draw up a clear “contract” that spells out where we are heading
- What changes do you want and why these now?
- How will we know when we have got there?
- Who else needs to be consulted?
2. If appropriate we involve key stakeholders
- What do colleagues or clients value in your current behaviour that should be preserved or even strengthened to become world class?
- How might you be reducing their productivity? Some colleagues may need help to be truthful, relevant and to articulate what they feel using language that is likely to be accepted and acted on.
- Refine the contract where needed
3. We create a plan for development
- Assignments between sessions
- Additional input from other specialists, reading etc
- Maintain a record of learning
- Review progress
4. Towards the end, we will review
- Have we met the success criteria
- Do stakeholders agree?
- Next steps?
Frequency and length of meetings is determined by diaries, deadlines and issues. It usually follows a monthly pattern with some front-loading to build momentum. To start your programme, call 020 8286 4772.
