What is executive coaching?

An executive coach acts as a sounding board, challenges thinking, stimulates creativity, provides tools and techniques for dealing with challenging situations, gives encouragement and builds confidence. The coach has unconditional positive regard for the coachee, has no agenda other than the coachee’s and is always on the coachee’s side. Together with good rapport, this builds a coaching relationship based on trust.

The benefits of executive coaching

For executives and senior managers, executive coaching is for you if you want to progress at work but not sure how, or you want to be an even more effective leader or improve your workplace performance. Executive coaching is for you if you want more out of your career.

What does a life coach do?

Life coaching is for people from all walks of life and all ages and stages of life who want more out of life but are struggling to do it alone. For those who would benefit from a trusted advisor, a confidante, a mentor and coach to encourage and help them achieve sought after goals.

Our approach to life coaching is an integrated mix of practices from solution focused coaching, NLP, neuroscience and positive psychology.

Solution-focused coaching is concerned with what a client wants to achieve in the end. A solution-focused coach will question a client about a goal in order to clarify his or her vision. What is it they really want? How are they going to get there? What happens once they do get there? Solution-focused coaching encourages: introspection, self-evaluation, clear goal setting and a richer understanding of one’s own unique path in life.
