Our aim is to:

  • Provide you with executive coaching and mentoring so that you can ‘work, manage and lead smarter’ within your organisation.

We can do this by:

  • Setting a flexible customised ongoing program initially for 1 – 3 months – depending on your needs and wants
  • Reviewing this at various stages to evaluate the progress

The program will include:

The tools of Emotional Intelligence and Transactional Analysis and other tools that provide good people skills ; - these will be linked at all time to the business process.

As the Coach/Mentor we offer structures and processes that provide:

  • Feedback and perceived effectiveness on the agreed goals

  • Reflection and support to the learning and development to achieve desired results
