  • Individuals and organisations face significant challenges to achieving good performance.
  • Lacking clear personal goals can lead to reduced engagement and underperformance.
  • Our coaching service addresses these issues, making key individuals feel valued, advancing talent management and giving support during hard times.
  • By their nature these assignments must remain confidential.

What did our client need?

  • Our client is a senior exec in local government.
  • He was involved in a major organisational process: merging two departments.
  • At the same time a number of personal challenges were having an adverse effect on his performance at work.

How did we help?

  • We decided that a bespoke, personal coaching service would be most suitable.
  • A close working alliance was present throughout; understandable given the intimate nature of the project.

In particular we looked at:

  • Personal support;
  • Technical guidance for restructuring organisations; and
  • Developing personal leadership effectiveness.

What challenges did we face?

  • Making the coaching compatible with a demanding workload.
  • We held our sessions at the end of the day.
  • Allowing for developments in work agenda.
  • Our structured approach was also flexible, responding to immediate support priorities.  We initiated regular formal reviews, enabling us to measure overall effectiveness.

What benefits did our client gain?

  • Our client was able to approach the organisational change agenda with authority and conviction.
  • He decided to extend the project as a personal commission (on a time limited basis) to focus on career coaching.

“I feel like we are way ahead of expectations. Thanks for your assistance, the method of your approach gets very good results.”
