Career Academy Coaching

For many, navigating the journey requires help from a third party to help you gain clarity, perspective and accountability. For these people we recommend the use of a third party coach. Coaching is a professional relationship unlike any other and provided you are committed to your own development, can yield fantastic results.

Executive Coaching

1:1 coaching is, at heart, a series of purposeful conversations between two individuals

What coaching is - and isn’t

Coaching conversations are:

  • Focused on your agenda, exploring the factors that impact your ability to be at your best and fulfil your potential
  • Goal (future) orientated and solution (not problem) focused
  • Rich with insight and learning where you will experience high quality listening, attention, observation, questioning, challenge
    and feedback
  • A place where you can stop and think, with someone who is thinking alongside you with positive intent and that believes in your abilities
  • Coaching is not structured learning, training, therapy, counselling, or a way of someone else solving your problems for you.

Benefits experienced from coaching include

  • Improved performance
  • Greater sense of direction and focus
  • Improved ability to relate to and influence others
  • Increased confidence
  • Clarity of thinking and liberation from unhelpful thinking patterns
  • Enhanced perspective and understanding of your situation
  • Increased self-awareness
  • Increased motivation
  • Recognition of competence and ability to act
