Why should you consider one to one Coaching?


Group training and coaching, such as our in-house training and open programs, is a fantastic way to help teams increase their collective effectiveness and cohesiveness. But sometimes a more personal approach is needed.
One-to-one coaching and mentoring is a highly personalised approach that supports professional development and holds several benefits, including:

Tailored solutions to your unique challenges:
the program is precisely tailored to your individual needs and goals.
Receptive & non-judgemental environment:
it allows you to open up in a confidential space and express your challenges, concerns & questions. 
Flexible coaching schedule:
the timing of sessions is flexible and can be booked to fit around your schedule.
Dynamic coaching approach:
sessions can be adapted based on what comes up to ensure a close focus on your goals.
Taking accountability:
it is easier for your coach to hold you accountable and therefore, you're more likely to implement your training and see results.

Who should consider one to one coaching?

There's a misconception that coaching is only required when there's an obvious problem.  Although coaching is recommended to support managers with specific challenges, it can also be successfully used to: 
'Fast track' a new manager into their role having had no previous formal training and development. 
Prepare an individual for the next management step.
Support a manager through periods of intense change.
Support a new manager struggling to establish themselves and develop their team.
Help an underperforming manager who has lost their way after a promising start.

What can you expect from us?

 We’ll find your best match

We start with you. We’ll have the right conversations with you, your manager and any relevant key partners to gain an insight into you and your business. With an idea of your background, experience, challenges and personality, we’ll decide together who from our team of george james coaches will be the best fit to work with you.

Plan for success

Together with your coach, you’ll identify and agree the changes or results you want to see and then formulate the success criteria, programme agenda and ensure these align with your business goals. We’ll iron out the details – such as the length of the coaching program and intervals between coaching days while ensuring this remains flexible to accommodate for your needs, schedule, and progress. 

 Getting stuck in 

We can work with you on a face to face basis either in-person or remotely as well as provide a series of scheduled and on-demand telephone support. We’ll utilise a variety of techniques and tools to assist your learning and development process - such as role play, attendance at key team meetings, Belbin profiling and formal report back exercises.
