In old-school boardrooms and businesses, coaching is still seen as remedial and only for people who are underperforming. In high-level sport, a highly skilled coach has always been critical to sustainable success, even when winning lots of trophies. Now, many enlightened leaders and managers see having a coach as a badge of honour, because they want to be stretched and nudged out of their comfort zones. They know this will help them to grow and progress because people perform even better when their mindsets, habits and behaviours are challenged.
“At the top tier of just about any sort of endeavour, you’ll find that the performers have coaches. Pianists, orators and athletes all have coaches. In fact, it would be weird if we heard of someone on stage or on the field who didn’t have one. And yet, in the world of business, they’re seen as the exception.”
There are many different types of coaching and many different types of coach. This means a good match between the coach and coachee is very important. At Talent 4 Performance we ensure that all our coaches have many years of experience, and highly professional standards, so we can provide a great match. Some of the specialisms of our coaches include:
All our coaches have considerable experience of coaching leaders, managers and individuals in a variety of contexts. A number of them also specialise in team coaching and action learning set facilitation.
The Talent 4 Performance formula for success:
Clarity x People = Performance
“The paradox is that the very things that hold us back from getting help are the reasons we need a coach in the first place.”
Our formula for success will help you clarify the outcomes want, because we use a holistic person-centered approach. We will support you to become the very best you can possibly be by working with you to clarify current strengths and potential blind spots, identifying the outcomes you want to achieve, and providing new ways of thinking about the issues you face. This means you can develop new mindsets, habits and behaviours, and achieve the success you want.
The purpose of any coaching programme is to improve performance and/or personal fulfilment. This requires robust evaluation, so our coaching programmes always establish an initial baseline of performance and/or clarity of outcomes which can be used to measure progress and achievement.
Depending on your needs, the coaching programme can be focused on one or more of the following:
- Clarifying direction
- Managing change and reorganisation
- Enhancing personal self-awareness
- Strategic thinking
- Impact and influence
- Improving team performance
