Coaching unearths blockers, creates strategies for progression and embeds a growth mindset that anything is possible with the right support, skills and attitudes.

A brief introduction

Coaching is a transformative process that uses behavioural science, questioning and psychometric tools like the Insights Discovery personal profile and 360s to build self-awareness and action plan blockers. This approach brings clarity to what’s really important to the coachee and hones in on personal as well as professional ambitions and goals, embedding a can-do attitude that follows through on commitments.

A coach isn’t there to answer questions, they’re there to question your answers

Each coaching relationship is unique, however here’s an example of what you could expect.

A coaching agreement typically consists of 90 minute sessions delivered over a period of three to nine months. The agreement becomes very personal to individual needs as the coachee travels through the process. Coaching can be delivered face to face or virtually and typically has a ‘check in’ between each session. A coaching relationship starts with an initial chemistry session. This session is all about rapport and both parties establishing the relationship, boundaries and managing expectations. It’s then usually bespoke to a coachee's needs, but the following could be a typical framework.

Phase one – Behaviour.

Subject to the coachee’s needs, initiating the process with a greater understanding of behaviour through the Insights Discovery personal profile quickly brings an awareness that is impactful, usable, and immediately applicable. This tool celebrates strengths, helps unearth issues and, along with support from a coach, guides the coachee towards possible blind spots and suggestions for development. 

Phase two – Accountability.

During phase two, the coachee will typically experience lightbulb moments and gain new insight which inevitably result in tangible actions. This encourages accountability and ensures that further actions are committed to, delves deeper into needs and renews short and long-term goals. 

Phase three – Embedding.

This phase is flexible based on progress made and the needs and goals of the coachee. During this phase we may use a 360 report to expand self-awareness and create commitment, ask for direct feedback from peers or reports, or continue to work in a fluid way based on the achievements and goals of the coachee. The final scheduled session focuses on empowering the individual to continue their journey of self-development.
