Coach/mentoring has a proven track record. LeaderShape provides this service most commonly when you or others in your organisation wish to benefit from individual development, challenge and support. Typical circumstances are when you may be preparing for higher office or have taken on a new and demanding role. Equally, we will often coach those who are already in the most senior roles and who recognize the benefits that off-line support can bring, providing a safe space to voice concerns and work through challenges; for example when leading through times of major change. You can always be assured of confidentiality in the coaching relationship.
Team coaching is a highly effective solution for many situations that involve a workplace team. It is not just about facilitating a productive conversation in a team, though this may be a part of it. Team coaching may use a number of interventions, including -1-2-1 sessions. At its core it is differentiated from individual coaching in a number of ways. At the heart of this is the principle that all discussions are undertaken with transparency, outputs shared with the team and in the interests of the team as a unit or system, rather than any individual.
Skilled coaching or mentoring should be an integral part of any management development strategy. The development of an internal cadre of coach/mentors can produce and sustain significant long-term benefits. LeaderShape has developed a proven and successful model for training internal Coach/Mentors for organisations.
