I’d just like to thank you for your advice and coaching – without your assistance I don’t think I would have unlocked the confidence and strength in myself to apply for (or look suitable for) the position. In particular, your advice around realising my potential and being “myself” has paid off in spades.
Paul is an excellent sounding board, and he does force me to rethink matters from a much more strategic viewpoint. To be honest, the thought of coaching was slightly terrifying, but I give my sessions with Paul a solid 5 out of 5. He is a terrific listener who knows just when to cut in with analysis and ideas for the next course of action.
Having undergone the TLC debrief I am more aware how and why I react to certain scenarios and how I can use my TLC learning to better approach situations in the workplace. Paul's coaching has really helped me pause and think. I have now fundamentally changed the way I conduct conversations with direct reports. I recommend this coaching!
Being a strong controller, I have become much more aware of how I communicate with my team. There have been a couple of occasions when the controller was about to explode out from me but I have restrained and trusted the process.
The sessions built from revealing the differing perspectives that could be put on difficult interactions with others, and moved my thinking from frustration to positive action. I now, far more often, catch myself in the moment of acting and allowing myself to consider other perceptions before I act 'self-righteously'. I wish I had experienced this work a long time ago. It's been absolutely life-changing.
There were two big learnings from my work with Paul. I know they might sound obvious, but I now understand them at a deeper level. First, 9 times out of 10, people get things done and it’s wise and safe to trust them. Second, give people the time to get to their own solution -don’t solve it for them. Don’t do it – just facilitate it! These learnings make a difference!
Paul's coaching has been timely and has allowed me to stop and reflect on how things are going with myself and my team. I've learnt about how to structure meetings, and how to have "difficult conversations". It's been great to freely chat about what is happening with the team - without any conflict or worries about confidentiality. I would definitely recommend this coaching.
I just wanted to thank you for the generous time and wisdom you provided me this afternoon (and over the past few months). Our discussions rotate around a fascinating yet challenging journey that I’m taking personally as well as professionally. I’m motivated by the skills I am developing and acquiring that I am sure will allow me to better motivate and inspire my peers and my direct reports and ultimately to bring about greater results for our organisation. I really appreciate your guidance and your advice and I look forward to our ongoing dialogue and the voyage ahead. Thanks again.
Disable your reactive patterns
Do you sense the need to work better with others, to overcome personal sabotaging tendencies or simply want higher performance from yourself, your team or your business?
Our approach to leadership coaching offers leaders the opportunity to make far better application of natural strengths and, importantly, to identify and disable the reactive patterns that are limiting your authentic demonstration of leadership.
We use The Leadership Circle
We recommend the Leadership Circle’s breakthrough 360 degree tool to provide rigor and accuracy to every leadership coaching session. This way we can ensure our coaching is being delivered in the context of reliable and relevant data about how others (and you) experience the leadership you offer. Using this data, we will generate, with you, a blue print for your leadership development.
Lift your leadership
Your leadership coaching will include genuine inner work on thoughts, feelings and beliefs and outer work on behaviours and skills. Therefore, you can be assured your leadership development is authentic and sustainable.
Because of the depth of this coaching and the richness of the data we retrieve using the Leadership Circle 360 tool, we generally recommend a minimum of 6 sessions with you. During these sessions you can be certain your leadership will be lifted to the next level and thereby increase your effectiveness in every area of your life.
