Soft skills and emotional intelligence has been proven to be an effective skill set when engaging with senior business stakeholders

Have you asked yourself…

What if your in-house buyers are lacking in soft skills and emotional intelligence?

Are your buyers equipped to spot and act on pain points they see within your organisation?

What impact is this having on your ability to truly engage and gain the trust of the business?

What’s stopping them being the best version of themselves?

The practice of coaching has been attested by many to improve productivity and help professionals reach their potential, overcoming limiting beliefs that may be holding them back via the process of increasing self-awareness.

How we can help

Regardless of your position,
we can help you

Whether you are pursuing individual development or wanting to improve your team’s performance, we work with you to develop a bespoke coaching program which is designed to work through your specific challenge(s).

We provide leadership coaching for those new to management and leading teams, and specialist coaching in stakeholder management, negotiation management and supplier relationship management.

Our approach is centered around an initial discussion and using the renowned C-Me colour profiling tool, to better understand you as an individual, followed by an agreed number of sessions to work through the “challenge”. The sessions are designed to help increase your level of self-awareness of your own behaviours and how they impact others and learn to understand when and how to adapt your behaviours to improve communication and increase your influence.

With individuals, our main focus is on improving self-awareness, making people aware of their own preferences, how they like to operate and the impact that this has on others. We empower people to improve their personal effectiveness by developing their skills through personal development plans and specific training programmes (e.g. time management, conflict management, influencing skills etc.). We also provide one to one coaching to deal with specific situations.

We work with teams to maximise the potential through developing team effectiveness. We work on team preferences and understanding team dynamics. We help teams understand reasons for difficulties and/or conflict and how best to deal with these. We work with new team managers to help them make the transition from doing to managing, and also with experienced managers to help them get the best from their teams. We focus on the challenges associated with managing and the skills needed to be an excellent manager.

We work with new and experienced leaders within organisations to build their leadership skills and make them more effective. With new leaders, the main objective is to help them make the leap from managing to leading. With experienced leaders we focus on developing vision and strategy, as well as specific leadership skills. Our programmes include 360º feedback, one to one coaching, use of real business situations and opportunities to share learning with other leaders.
