Helping exceptional professionals become exceptional leaders
How We Help
It’s amazing how quickly your attitude can change and momentum starts to build once you make the conscious decision to do something different – to take action. By choosing to work with a professional coach, you are making an important commitment to yourself and wise investment in your future.
Combining coaching, mentoring and trusted-advisor methodologies, we coach leaders and high-performing employees to be more conscious in their approach. This awareness and commitment to action helps them to be authentic to themselves and those around them. It builds trust, creates energy and provides individuals with a true sense of purpose.
Tap into your best professional performance, be authentic and inspire the people you lead.
The International Federation of Coaching(ICF) defines coaching as –
“Partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximise their personal and professional potential.”
Coaching involves structured conversations that lead to measurable outcomes that are in the service of the client. As a trusted partnership, the Coach and Coachee work towards achieving and maximising the Coachee’s professional potential. A Coach is a skilled professional who, in a safe and trusting environment, helps clients to develop their knowledge and capabilities in achieving their professional goals.
Coaching is one of the most powerful and valuable professional development opportunities available. It is particularly useful for those who are seeking to challenge themselves to meet a particular goal or are having an issue that is difficult to address through other means.
What is the role of the coach?
The role of a Coach is to get the Coachee to think differently… and act on it.
As a strategic business partner, your Coach will support you as your trusted facilitator. Coaches create the atmosphere and safe space in which a deep and meaningful dialogue can take place. They challenge individuals to adopt new ways of thinking, focus on the belief that individuals have the answers within and utilise powerful questioning and reflection in order to release solutions.
Leadership Coaching is an individually tailored professional development process that aims to improve leadership performance.
It is suitable for both experienced leaders and those new to people leadership.
The leadership coaching journey involves regular 1-on-1 confidential coaching sessions that will be an essential part of your learning process. Each session will move you forward in the direction of your professional goals and what you want to achieve. Acting as a sounding board, the Coach will support you to raise your self awareness, self confidence and truly unlock your performance potential. Key to this transition is working together, as partners, in discussions that are positive, future-focused and strength-based.

What is career coaching?
Many clients who are new to career coaching ask –“What is career coaching?” and“How can it help me?” Let’s look at the benefits of career coaching and how it helps people.
What positive changes would occur in your life if you achieved your career goals?
Career coaching empowers and educates you to take back responsibility for your career and achieve success.
Consider the following questions:
How do you feel about your work each day?
How many résumés have you sent – without success?
What would performing better at interviews feel like?
What do you need to achieve your next promotion?
Do you feel that there is something better for you out there?
How does your work align with your values?

Your Career Coach will help you achieve that rewarding career by supporting, challenging and encouraging you along your journey towards:
finding your passion and ideal career
gaining that promotion
creating a professional and inspiring résumé – that gets results
improving your responses to complex selection criteria
building confidence in job interviews – so that you get the job
finding a career and/or company that aligns with your values

What does “taking control of my own career” mean?
Taking control of your career means actively defining and achieving your short and long term career goals. By having this deliberate plan that is constantly‘top-of-mind’ for you, it provides you something to work towards. Your career progress and development is in your hands – not your employers. When you take ownership of your career, you will be able to pivot and adjust as your career goals change.
