Coaching is a series of structured, one to one conversations with an experienced coach aimed at achieving agreed personal and business development goals.
We offer coaching when we see that someone has questions they really want to answer, and situations they want to resolve and they just can't seem to get there by themselves. Anything ranging from "how do I raise my professional profile?" through to "I just can't cope with one of my colleagues" can fall within the coaching remit.
We adopt an uncomplicated, non-judgemental approach.
During the conversations we maintain focus on the agreed goal and question, guide and challenge in a supportive person-focused way. We always ensure goals are achieved and actions agreed at the end of each session.
If you think coaching might be relevant to either you or other members of your business, please contact us for a chat. We will find out more about the need and agree the next steps with you from there.
To get an idea of what to expect, here's what a recent coach had to say about his experience:
"People in leadership positions go through their career always focused on the next job, the next promotion; it’s always about progression and getting the job done. I was no different but I hit a plateau and couldn’t understand how to take my career to the next level.
I was introduced to Motion Learning and spent 6 executive one on one coaching sessions understanding me and how I ‘worked’.
It’s amazing how little you understand yourself and how much you influence the perception of others. It’s tough baring your inner thoughts and your weaknesses to a stranger but Rachel patiently listened, advised and importantly for me demonstrated some of the points using models I could take away and relate to.
Rachel’s advice has transformed the way I work and the way people perceive me, I only wish I’d done this years ago!"
