"A life coach does for the rest of your life what a personal trainer does for your health and fitness."

Elaine MacDonald

Coaching and mentoring are development approaches based on the use of one-to-one conversations to enhance an individual’s skills, knowledge or work performance.

There are generally agreed characteristics for coaching in organisations which we can tailor to your specific needs:

  • It is non-directive form of development.
  • It focuses on improving performance and developing an individual.
  • Personal factors may be included but the emphasis is on performance at work.
  • Coaching activities have both organisational and individual goals.
  • It provides the opportunity for people to better assess strengths as well as development areas.
  • It’s a skilled activity, delivered by people who are trained to do so.

The aims of workplace coaching can include:

  • Assisting performance management
  • Preparing and supporting people through change
  • Supporting learning and development
  • Development of a coaching culture within the workplace is becoming increasingly widespread within organisations
