    The essence of coaching

    Listening on a deep level is the essence of coaching and it is very easy to think you know what you've heard or give it meaning that isn't intended by the client. This process helps with getting real clarity for the client about what their issue is and depth of thinking in the exploration of it.

    It’s gone down a storm!

    We run a two-day senior manager benchmarking and development planning event that is innovative in its design. For co-coaching sessions we set them up with a framework based on the Five-Minute Coach model and they can very quickly start to use it. It’s useful because we’re trying to encourage coaching and co-coaching generally, and giving them a different model that they can use quickly and easily makes a lot of sense. We’ve now used it with more than 250 senior managers. It’s gone down a storm!

    Highly recommended

    The Five-Minute Coach has enabled me to help a lot of people help themselves in my organisation this year. As well as being a very practical framework for really effective one to one conversations, it has instilled an approach that can be usefully and respectfully applied in many day to day situations. It unlocks personal power and keeps responsibility for change in the hands of those that seek it. Highly recommended.
