“You have given me a mind-set that my role is to stay focused on what is important for the client and they are accountable for taking action. In previous coach training it seemed like the coach had to design the methods and structure for the action plan. I realise now that is managing not coaching!” Head of Talent & OD, BIG Lottery Fund
“I benefitted particularly from the confidential, neutral and reflective space which enabled unrestricted exploration of some real fundamentals. This included establishing what’s important to me, life-line evolution, communication styles, taking charge of my own situation, coping with frustrations etc. Several useful challenges/steers gave me a ‘take-away’ from each session.” SCS member of the Career Transition service
“I hoped that coaching would provide me with an opportunity to break down any barriers to personal career progression and development – I wasn’t sure how it would do this. The coaching process helped me to firstly identify what the barriers were, secondly why they existed and techniques that I could use to overcome any barriers to what I wanted to achieve … Coaching for me really pulled out what seemed to be complicated issues to break down and identify personal blockers and put very simple solutions in place – the result in my case has been positive action and steps in the direction that I wanted to take.” Senior Manager, Legal Aid Boar
