Coaching is not counseling, therapy or advice. It is working with individuals and groups to explore how they can use their skills, abilities and knowledge to achieve their desired goals and objectives, both in work and life. For more information, please read the article ‘Why bother with coaching?’ Organisations and individuals who invest in their people typically see benefits from gaining clarity about what they are doing and why they are doing it and a better sense of purpose and method in their lives. For organisations this can reduce turnover, release time for value added work and improve customer satisfaction. For individuals it supports their learning and development, engenders a sense of value in their work and helps improve work/life balance. Please contact Jaime directly by email on [email protected] or ring on 07742 611 896.
