We have extensive experience in delivering transformational team and individual coaching programmes for a number of NHS Trusts, and this work constitutes a significant portion of our business.
Our Team Effectiveness coaching model and associated diagnostic tools have been developed as part of a research project carried out in conjunction with leaders in Norfolk Community and Health Care NHS Trust. We’ve really enjoyed the work that has gone into this, and can’t speak highly enough of the people, too numerous to mention, in this Trust with whom we have engaged.
Our Partners have many years of experience in working both at a senior level within, and as external coaches to, large organisations operating within these sectors. This gives us unique insight into the challenges faced by the individuals and teams with whom we work, leading, amongst other engagements, to our being appointed to the coaching panel of one of the two main Irish Banks.
As part of our work within this sector we have been commissioned as leadership and coaching columnists, by Accountancy Ireland, the magazine for the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Ireland, and really enjoy the work we do, and conversations we have, with Stephen our long suffering editor.
Our work with Startup, Family and SME Businesses focuses both on providing facilitated thinking space for, often overwhelmed, Founder-Directors, and on providing specifically tailored ‘Gearing for Growth’ training and development workshops for key individuals within the businesses with whom we collaborate.
We are very excited about the work we have done, and continue to do, with our Birmingham neighbours BACE Construction Consultants – a dynamic and rapidly growing firm of go-getters. We’ve been helping them to develop a systemic coaching culture within their organisation, and have been really impressed at how Helen, the Director tasked with working alongside us, has taken this project forward, and by the support she has received from her team.
Doing the work that we do we often find ourselves working closely with HR and Learning professionals, and we very much enjoy the opportunity to learn from one another that this brings. Our conversations, particularly with senior L&D professionals always leave us feeling challenged and eager to continue to ‘up our game’ further as we seek to collaborate with them in helping to refine the development offering within their organisations.
It has been our privilege to assist with the development of one of the Plan International internal coaches by providing supervision to Julie, one of the first coaches to work within the organisation. Exciting times indeed!
