Isolation

Directors and businesses owners in particular can also be isolated. Uncertainty about trust and confidentiality or personal competition often make it hard for an Owner or Director or Manager to turn to a colleague about issues that may put into question their performance or tenure.

A Fresh Mind

Consult a fresh mind, someone who brings no investment or position of his own, an outsider who is not involved with the organisation, its culture or its politics. We can reflect ideas, evoke solutions and support there implementation. Not just for Directors and business owners but also for their staff.

More Productive Management Teams

The same is true for business teams. When they get together, they want their meetings to be as productive as possible, and team facilitation by an independent coach is an excellent way to achieve that. The coach is able to monitor the dynamics of the team and attend to group process while assisting and freeing the team to focus on task. If training is required this can be specific and focused to the individual needs and goals of the team.

Fast Track Development of Key People

In today’s business world senior management have less and less time to act as mentors to the new or underutilised employee. Employees are left to cope on their own which inevitably slows down their development. Companies are recognising the benefits of engaging experienced people from outside the business to act as mentors to key employees on a regular basis.
