Coaching and Mentoring

Coaching and mentoring is working with an individual to achieve speedy, increased and sustainable effectiveness in their lives and careers through focused learning.  The process involves a journey of self-discovery and self-development to improve personal effectiveness.  Twenty-first century organisations benefit from both internal and external coaching and mentoring.

External coaching provided by certified professional business and executive coaches is key in developing management to transform excellent performance to peak performance.

Internal coaching, which is carried out by professionally trained individuals within the organisational structure, can be defined as:

Research has shown that there is a high correlation between the individual development of the employee, business manager and executive and the success of the organisation. Organisations that provide coaching and mentoring have repeatedly stressed the following benefits:

Creating a positive work environment that sustains motivation and achieves successful organisational outcomes.

Creating open communication systems where the employee is able to communicate concerns and receive guidance in a ‘safe’ environment. The coach is able to gauge trends in employees in the organisation and action.

Developing support systems in the organisation by training staff to be emotionally intelligent and providing coaching and project management training programmes to ensure their own growth and the support for their colleagues.

Improvement of Performance Standards as the manager is involved in coaching skills, setting accepted goals and guiding their team to achieve objectives.

Total Quality Management by supporting and helping staff to develop solutions to problems and therefore improving the quality of customer service and care in the organisation.

Flatter Management Structures. Today’s manager has a greater area of control and needs to be more of a coach than a director of specific work activities.

Change Management. We are held back from change by fear. Fear is about losing control. Coaching how to cope with and coaching through change with open communication is vital for employee acceptance and successful organisational transition.
