COACHING & CONSULTING
Coaching is emerging as one of the most significant approaches to the development of individuals, teams and organizations. Research suggests that coaching is at least four times more effective than a typical training program. Importantly, coaching not only facilitates executive development, but also has a positive and profound impact on organizational success.
In an age of unprecedented complexity, uncertainty and change, turbulence is becoming part of our everyday experience. We must be willing to adapt and remain agile in order to respond effectively and more creatively to this ever-changing context. Coaching, with its focus on ongoing self-directed learning and personal growth, enables individuals to harness their potential and step up in response to these challenges. This increased interest and use of coaching has, in part, resulted from growing evidence supporting its effectiveness.
Research on coaching has found the following benefits:
- Increased goal striving, commitment and attainment
- Enhanced performance, productivity and environmental mastery
- Solution-focused thinking, collaboration, creativity and innovation
- Enhanced hope, optimism, resilience and self-efficacy
- Increased wellbeing, mental toughness, cognitive hardiness and flexibility
- Reduction of workplace stress, anxiety, depression, burnout and turnover
- A greater ability to deal with change and transition
- Improvements in transformational leadership
In addition to the more traditional approaches to leadership coaching that focus on the development of skills and competencies, our coaching also encompasses the development of the mindset, adaptive capabilities, agility, and perspective taking capacity, required for effective leadership and organizational success in a fast moving, unpredictable environment.

Group Coaching, Team & Systemic Team Coaching
Group and team coaching is rapidly gaining traction as a powerful tool for helping improve performance. It is being increasingly recognized that the performance issues of both organizations and individuals are systemic. Group and team coaching, when done well, act as the bridge between individual and organizational learning. Indeed, groups and teams are the most practical unit to integrate individual and systemic perspectives, to manage the complexity of co-working, and to respond to the shifting needs of organizations.
Despite this, experience in the field suggests that coaches are adapting approaches to meet this demand with mixed success. Our coaches have extensive experience, having undertaken the highest levels of training and professional development in Group, Team and Systemic Team Coaching.
