‘Coaching is a development process whereby an individual meets on a regular basis to clarify goals, deal with potential stumbling blocks and improve their performance. It is an intervention that is highly personal and generally involves a one-on-one relationship between coach and client' (Cummings & Worley, 2009)
We take a thorough inventory and this coupled with understanding an individual’s goals balanced with organisational needs, means we tailor a programme resulting in talented people growing exponentially. We increase self-awareness, challenge limiting beliefs in a supportive framework, that leads to breakthrough learning.
Some of the areas we cover:
We offer a wide range of development programmes for leaders, managers, high potential and high performers to raise their skill levels and improve their performance. Some of the programmes are listed in our toolkit.
Our internal programmes include:
Every organisation is different, so we work with you to build bespoke programmes to meet your specific development needs.
Using the same techniques, models and psychometric tools as executive coaching, it's an opportunity to explore your personal and life goals. To look deeper into how to define and achieve them and examine what stops you in the process. It's as valuable as any professional exploration, you use the same values, beliefs, skills, experience and knowledge. We explore the whole you, at any time, but usually when you have come to a crossroad or block, when you have big decisions and choices to make. You know the answers, but maybe don't know you do. A coach takes that alternative/external perspective, helping you make your thoughts and dreams a reality,

"I chose Dilys for a variety of reasons. Her reputation as a coach is
second to none so I knew I would be in safe hands. I was lucky enough to
attend some of the workshops that she facilitated. Her personal style
is warm, engaging and thought provoking which struck a chord with me.
Finally I knew that her experience of the current job market was
relevant to the industries I would be looking at. These factors were all
crucial in choosing her as my mentor and helping me to secure a
positive outcome. We worked together identifying my key skills and
through employing a variety of psychometric tests, we were able to make a
strategic plan of action. Dilys does not offer a "painting by numbers"
or "tick box" approach to her coaching. We only engaged in creating
relevant and appealing CV's for actual jobs rather than creating a
generic one size fits all document. The hours that we spent together
were so valuable and were exactly what I needed from an outplacement
service." - Fraser Purfit (Senior Administrator)

In addition to the measurable business benefits, I also find her great fun to work with.
