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.
