Coaching

Coaching is a powerful development tool that opens up self-awareness, and insights, helps individuals to develop specific skills and facilitates them arriving at solutions to their challenges.

Coaching Style

We aim is to provide a confidential space in which coachees can openly discuss their goals, challenges and dilemmas and to reflect and explore potential solutions.   Anna's coaching approach is predominantly non-directive, facilitating coachees to arrive at their own solutions.  However, where appropriate Anna will suggest ideas or options for the coachee to consider.    Helping coachees to develop their self-awareness is fundamental to Anna's coaching philosophy.  To support this approach she uses a range of psychometric tools such as DiSC, MBTI and EQ-i 2.0.  Anna also incorporates 360 degree feedback tools when appropriate.

A typical coaching programme consists of 6 sessions over a 6-month period, however frequency and number of coaching sessions is flexible in response to your organisation's and the individual's requirements.
