About this course

As part of the process of developing senior leadership of organisations, we work closely with them on a long-term basis in one-on-one executive and leadership coaching settings. This is a highly personalised long-term program, defined by the developmental objectives of the coachee and where relevant the client organisation. The Coach/Mentor will guide and facilitate the coachee to achieve his/her objectives. Typically the objectives are a mix of organisational, leadership (be it strategic or operational) and personal objectives. The coaching process focuses on the development of the coachee, whereby he/she is empowered and skilled to act confidently, authentically and effectively.

Our approach to coaching has a strong foundation in narrative coaching, narrative therapy and narrative inquiry. Which means that we invest in building a safe space to encourage our clients to share their stories. In doing so, we help clients

  • understand how they make meaning of their life stories (storying and re-storying)
  • and also explore lived experiences that don’t make it into the way they tell their stories (dominant vs. alternative stories).

This opens up the possibility for the client

  • to widen and deepen their understanding of how their personal, familial, social and cultural history stories them, and to find spaces to change, choose, own the stories they want to create and be part of towards their own well-being
  • and to consider how they can incorporate alternative stories that are in the service of their own growth

What happens at a session?

The first session is mostly about getting to know each other, and sharing expectations, and setting some key areas for development. After that, each session is generally guided by the goals for development or change, and whatever else is coming up for  the client in their personal and professional lives that is relevant to be addressed. In our personal experience, goals and areas for change and development evolve as the client goes through the process of coaching, and as our relationship develops and deepens.

How many sessions should I sign up for

It is up to you. Typically a first time client signs up for up to six (6) sessions at a time. And meet every 4 to 6 weeks. Then they re-contract again as per their needs. We have many clients with whom we have worked with over a long period of time, where they come for a couple of sessions as and when they need to.

Is coaching only for working professionals?

We have a number of clients who are not working professionals, who are either stay at home spouses or parents, who are looking to make sense of changing roles and circumstance, take the next step in their lives, or just wanting to respond more effectively to the daily demands of their lives.

My team members have different development needs. Is coaching applicable?

We often work with organisations where we are contracted to individually coach all the team members. This way the individual grows while the team develops. We also coach teams as a whole, which is where we work on team development needs. Check here for more on that. Sometimes organisations needs a mixture of individual one-on-one coaching and team coaching.
