What is coaching and how can it help me?

Sometimes traditional classroom based training is not sufficient to assist an individual’s learning requirements- this is where 1:1 coaching may be more effective. Coaching means improving performance through learning situations, in a planned way and under guidance.

How much time/ commitment is required?

A coaching session is usually an hour long and, dependent on the individual’s availability, can take place every week or fortnight. Typically an individual can undertake up to 6 sessions. There may be some limited time that the individual may need to spend to work on additional support for their learning. A coaching session can take place either face to face, by phone or video call.

Case study

A senior manager was requested to manage a new client implementation project. The new client was extremely demanding and lacked strategic direction. The senior manager felt his involvement on the project consumed all his time consequently he was unable to maintain commitments in his current role. To add he had been identified as potential successor for a Director position but he felt his involvement in the project was placing his focus away from developmental opportunities.

Working long hours started to affect the senior manager, he showed signs of stress so the senior manager’s line manager suggested he attend a coaching program.

Within the initial session the senior manager stated he felt frustrated that he was losing control, work was taking over his life and he felt he was unproductive. He also stated he had decided that he would leave the company. A comment he made to me in the first session was “I am trying to do too many things at once.”

As part of the coaching process, the senior manager set some goals and I helped to facilitate his progress towards his goals. By the fourth session the senior manager stated “I feel more alert, more focused.”

During our time together the senior manager worked through his goals which were business and life coaching related. By the end of the session he stated that he no longer wanted to leave the company and that…

“The coaching intervention came at the right time for me, Jacqueline’s coaching helped me to gain perspective. Had I not received this coaching I probably would have left the company…”  (Senior Manager, Global Outsourcing Organisation)
