COACHING PROVIDES EFFECTIVE PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
When people are under-pressure, under-prepared or just busy getting on with business, it’s easy to get distracted or off-course. In times of constant change when you might be experiencing high staff turnover or continually fighting fires in certain areas, it gives people cause to re-visit their approach and where necessary, change how they think, engage and act. Participating in a professional coaching programme facilitated by a qualified coach provides opportunity for people to stop and reflect on what they’re doing well and where they could improve.
Coaching can benefit your organisation by:
- Strengthening leadership
- Improving capability, performance and motivation
- Improved confidence, personal awareness or insight
- Supporting the development of personal resilience
- Developing the capacity to come up with more insightful, more innovative options for our organization
- Becoming better able to handle complexity, ambiguity and change
- Improving staff engagement and retention
COACHING IS AN EFFECTIVE INVESTMENT
Research proves coaching to be a worthwhile investment. McGovern (2001) estimated coaching to be worth 5.7 times the initial investment. Organisational benefits from coaching included better:
- organisational strength
- improved relationships with direct reports and peers
- customer service
- cost reduction
- job satisfaction
I AM A REPUTABLE, CREDIBLE AND EXPERIENCED COACH
I have a Master of Science in Coaching Psychology from the University of Sydney – one of the few postgraduate qualifications worldwide in coaching psychology. The program is recognised as a world leader in the development of both coaching theory and its real world application. The main focus is on coaching in business and organisational settings and enabled me to be a skilled coach, capable of coaching in an extensive variety of settings and with a wide range of clients including executive and management coaching.
My post-graduate coaching specialisations include complex adaptive leadership, collective leadership, leadership presence and mindfulness. I have received over 500 hours of coach-specific training. I am committed to ongoing professional development and regularly attend national and international conferences, courses and webinars focussing on coaching and leadership development. I receive regular coaching supervision from a qualified supervisor in order to engage in reflective dialogue and collaborative learning for the development and benefit for me as coach and my clients.
