For Individuals:

Some people are satisfied with their chosen career however look for a broader perspective on where they could develop and how they are managing. They may have plateaued in their role, feel under-valued or over-stretched and not be managing aspects of their role as well as they could – or would like to.

Professional supervision and development coaching offer space for the individual to expand their view of themselves and the way they affect their work. Supportive ‘sponsorship’ from the coach enables growth and greater efficacy.

Professional Supervision and Development Coaching

Professional Supervision for people who do ‘people work’ is essential and often a requirement for membership of any ethics-based professional body concerned with the health and well-being of the public or employees.
Supervision offers practitioners:-

  • The provision of reflective space
  • Increased effectiveness of practice
  • Feeling supported in the work
  • Increased capacity to deal with difficult situations
  • Assistance in processing feelings about clients, employees or situations

As a provider of supervision I work on the assumption that my client or Supervisee knows their situation best and therefore drives their own process and learning at the pace that suits them. See more

Development Coaching for managers and senior employees with a lot of responsibility provides an opportunity to have space to reflect on how they are managing their work. With supportive coaching and deep enquiry from a trusted professional coaching makes a real difference for individuals and their work. 6 – 10 sessions are recommended.

Development coaching offers:-

  • Support and increased validation
  • Checking for career or role alignment
  • Connection to what matters in the individual’s life and work
  • A holistic approach to working through issues and support to lessen the burden
  • Regular sessions provide a valuable on-going evolution of perspective

Workshops for Teams:

Understanding Personalities at Work

When individuals in a team have a shared language around personality differences, strengths and weaknesses they are more likely to draw on each other’s complimentary skills and ways of working.  The Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is an ideal tool to assist teams to build improved understanding of themselves individually, and how best to interact, communicate  and appreciate differences with other team members and customers. Half day and full day workshops offer robust interactive experiences to maximise learning outcomes. Assessments are completed online and feedback given prior to the workshop or are given manually as part of the workshop. Workshops are designed to suit the needs of the team and their organisation.

Managing  Careers Today:

There is no longer a clear game-plan for the future of careers. Technology is changing so rapidly that it is difficult for people to navigate  an uncertain work landscape. This workshop offers employees an opportunity to evaluate their careers, identify what motivates them and provides tools for developing personal competencies which in turn ensure career sustainability and psychological flexibility.

This workshop can be a quick 1.5hr overview or a longer and deeper process to really help employees develop the resilience and career clarity required. The workshops are based on current career development theories which place the emphasis on personal responsibility and personal development with the aim to improving work engagement and performance.

Managing Change and Uncertainty:

Workplaces are transforming the way they do business. The impacts of disruption on the way we work and how we interact with colleagues can test us personally and interpersonally. Organisations are realising that it is not only helpful to discuss resilience but to also encourage and grow psychological flexibility in their people.

This workshop can offer 1.5hr overview or a longer and deeper process to really help employees develop the resilience and agility managers are asking for in their employees. The workshop is based on developing psychological flexibility theory using the ACT (Acceptance Commitment Training) model to help employees to accept the situation and make a commitment to practicing strategies that work. Like all our workshops, the emphasis is on personal responsibility and personal development.

Career Planning for Older Workers:

These days, since there is no mandatory retirement age we are working longer, and managing our late career transitions are more complex. This means that older workers need to plan and build greater collaboration with their managers so that they continue to learn new skills, continue to make a contribution and create lifestyles that support well-being.

Two workshops are offered;

  1. A half day workshop that emphasises taking personal responsibility for managing a late-career transition and provides simple tools to evaluate and plan towards greater lifestyle balance.
  2. A full day workshop that offers a comprehensive process from which participants can evaluate the status of their career, assess their current motivators and create some clear objectives for their late-career transition towards improved contribution and a satisfying lifestyle.
