Our Approach

Understanding your challenges
Whatever your situation …. taking charge of a new role, adapting to changes in role, leading multiple change projects, managing the emotional/political reactions to change, creating collaboration across traditional boundaries….our starting point is to understand the organisational and cultural context and your perspective of the challenges.

Engaging with your issues
We understand that effective leadership of change starts with what ‘I’ not ‘They’ will do.
We recognise that the most transformational learning often comes from the fire of human experience and equips us to more effectively manage the journey ahead.

Our coaching approach:

  • seeks to stimulate transformational learning to help you gain the most from the richness of your experience as you seek to address new challenges
  • clarifies the underlying organisational dilemmas that need to be worked on
  • takes a systemic approach to problem solving, linking parts of an issue to the whole
  • addresses the whole person, recognising how issues in one area inevitably impact another
  • explores the political and emotional as well as the rational reactions to change
  • focuses on results

A working partnership - linking learning and change

‘Transformation Learning is learning that results in a fundamental shift in the way we see, feel, react to issues, dilemmas, challenges and improves our effectiveness’.

‘Transformation change is change that results in a fundamentally different way of working’
