What is Coaching?
Coaching is no longer the preserve of the sports elite but is now becoming a key driver for maximising performance in both the business and political world. Put simply coaching is a facilitative process where the coach supports and challenges the individual to raise their self-awareness, set clear goals and maximise their performance to fast-track results and personal fulfilment.
"The work I do with clients is a bit like the work of a sports coach. It’s their game. I help them discover and implement small tweaks that will amplify their impact and influence, bringing greater personal and professional fulfilment."
