We describe our coaching as relational, transformational and eclectic. We work with your experience and the structure of your experience to support you to realise your talents and aspirations, to be all you can be.
We understand what it takes to be a great coach not just an average coach. For us coaching is a calling, something we love to do, it is not just a career for us.
Our 1:1 coaching services include:
We work with directors, senior executives and business owners as a sounding board to explore business, professional and personal issues. It can sometimes be lonely at the top, as a Sounding Board we can help you think things through. With no axe to grind we will listen, reflect back, question, challenge and support.
Becoming the leader you want to be. In one-way or another we are all leaders and as you move up the organisational ladder you find the call on your leadership skills grows. Yet leadership is not just a set of skills or a coat to put on, it is, we believe, about becoming the leader you want to be. We take both an inside-out and an outside-in approach when working with our clients to develop and manifest their leadership capability and identity.
Using a variety of the very best 360º feedback and psychometric tests, we can assist in getting a three dimensional profile of you and your performance. This can confirm strengths and highlight the gaps and areas for development.
Taking a proactive and strategic approach to developing future directors and chief executives. We work with incumbents to help them develop the attitudes, skills and behaviours required for them to successfully progress into higher level roles. Many organisations now see succession planning as not just sound business but an imperative.
The coaching is focused on specific areas to bridge the gap between current and desired performance levels and develop high performance. This might be for managers and executives who are already performing well and want to enhance their performance or for those whose appraisal indicates they are not performing up to expectations. This can address a general performance issue and or a specific issues such as working relationships, confidence, motivation or delivering targets.
The incidences of stress and stress related illness are increasingly an issue in these current times. Stress causes poor behaviour and poor decision making. It costs money as we all know. We work with people and their mind, body and emotional intelligence to enable them to manage and change their response to the pressures of life and to manage their energy. This coaching is offered by Beyond co-founder, Paul King, who is qualified in Conscious & Leadership Embodiment, the HeartMath approach to stress management and several other mind-body approaches. He is also a teacher of Tai Chi and Qigong and works with mindfulness and meditation.
Communication, influence, negotiation and conflict management; these are key skills and often areas where we provide coaching support to improve relationships and effectiveness of communication with colleagues, customers, suppliers and all other stakeholders, plus also with family and friends.
We believe success and happiness are grounded in engaging in the journey of becoming who we want to be. From our own experience of this ongoing journey we offer personal coaching as guides, sharing our training, knowledge and tools to help you travel.
Knowing where you are and where you want to get to. Becoming all you can be – choosing your vision, planning your route map, applying your focus and commitment to reach your destination. Managing personal energy – a dynamic of physical, mental and emotional factors to support you.
Getting the inside out, coaching on how to present yourself congruently and effectively. We work to link who you are at your best to how best to present yourself in order to have the impact and get the results and responses you would like from the world, (whilst having fun).
