Business Coaching and Mentoring

Tim Gallwey, the author of “The Inner Game”, has a great definition of coaching – “Coaching is unlocking a person’s potential to maximise their own performance. It’s helping them to learn rather than teaching them”.  Over the years that I have coached leaders and their teams, I have learned three things:

  • Most people can and want to do a good job
  • A coach can help them to remove barriers that are preventing them from doing their best and achieving their potential
  • Often these barriers result from their lack of awareness and emotional intelligence (EQ), rather than their IQ. (We know now that being blessed with a high IQ is no guarantee of success, but having a low EQ is likely to lead to failure).

Business Coaching and Mentoring Approach

My business coaching and mentoring focuses on developing a trusting partnership with my coachee/mentee, where they feel safe enough to have tough conversations, assess the impact of their current behaviours and identify new, more productive ways of thinking about and working with people.

I use the appropriate assessment tools (conducted by a psychologist if necessary), to provide objective information that we will work with going forward.

The intention is to encourage people to think and develop self-insight, identify solutions that will help them to grow, improve how they relate to others and strengthen their confidence in their ability to reach their potential.
