Coaching & Mentoring

The benefits of an experienced coach or mentor cannot be underestimated. Whether it’s for personal development or managing the pressures of senior level positions in a rapidly changing context, executive coaches and mentors offer the perfect balance of support and challenge.

Benefits of working with a coach

  • A coach provides an opportunity for busy leaders to work through their biggest leadership challenges under the guidance of an experienced, external and, above all, independent, sounding board.   A coach is trained to facilitate increased self-awareness and honest self-reflection.  This enables leaders to discover fresh perspectives and possibilities.
  • Coaches are experienced in working with human behavior and the people dynamics of organisations and systems.  They can help their clients to make sense of what is going on and understand why they and others are behaving as they are; which in turn makes the client feel empowered and in control.
  • A good coach will provide the right balance of support and challenge, which boosts confidence and increases personal resilience.

Mentoring

For those looking for more specific support, our experienced sector mentors work on a one-to-one basis, helping to address specific skills requirements, work-related challenges around people or projects, or issues relating to career and personal development. A mentor offers practical advice, and shares experience and expertise learned from their time in the field, so it’s a great way to move your career forward.
