Coaching

Executive Coaching

Coaching is a collaborative and creative process to help individuals increase engagement, performance and wellbeing. We use a holistic and systematic approach, all underpinned by evidence-based research. All of our coaching takes on a developmental angle – helping to ensure people grow, that change is lasting, and they are equipped to self-manage more proficiently beyond the engagement.

Intensive Leadership Development Program

This process incorporates a bespoke 360-degree feedback process to help identify the central, and most powerful developmental angles that can help leaders be more effective and influential within their roles. The in-depth coaching program utilises a systemic lens to help broaden perspectives and challenge existing narratives, which is crucial for all leaders in this dynamic and complex environment.

Team Coaching

Team coaching is becoming a more popular approach as people understand the benefits it can provide. As diversity in teams and organisations continues to proliferate, it’s important to understand how to most effectively harness its benefits. We help teams work on dialogue and other collaborative processes to facilitate greater teamwork, creativity and innovation, and emergent outcomes.

Programs & Workshops

Post Covid Work Model

A proprietary model developed to help address current challenges given systemic changes and new working approaches. This is based around the key components of Self-Determination Theory (competence, autonomy and relatedness) with an overarching focus on well-being. This workshop helps optimise performance for individuals, teams and organisations through understanding psychological needs and benefits and how they integrate into the “new” workplace.

Well-being & Peak Performance

A holistic approach to well-being and peak performance, integrating multiple facets of these complex constructs for a healthy, aligned and meaningful existence. This workshop lends from various theories including positive psychology, mindfulness, flow and contemporary high-performance models. Meaning and purpose are a key paradigm impacting well-being that we also explore in this workshop. Participants will come away with tangible tools and approaches to optimise well-being and facilitate high performance in all parts of their lives.

Emotional Intelligence (EI)

The way we feel can enhance or impair the decisions that we make, the behaviour we display and therefore our performance, both in the workplace and in life generally. Emotional intelligence is the ability to perceive, understand, express, reason with, and manage emotions within oneself and others. Applied at work emotional intelligence is about how intelligently we use emotions to achieve desired results.

As more and more work processes become automated, soft skills utilising our emotional intelligence become more critical, particularly in management and leadership roles. This workshop helps underline why these skills are becoming even more important today, and how we can foster and develop them over time.

Typically, this workshop would be coupled with individual assessments, debriefs and ongoing coaching to help formulate and deliver on clear developmental pathways.

Mental Toughness (MT)

Mental toughness can be defined as “A personality trait which determines, in large part, how individuals deal with stressors, pressure, opportunity and challenge...irrespective of the prevailing situation.” When people talk about “attitude”, this is essentially the 4 key constructs of MT....

  • Having a can-do approach

  • Delivery orientated

  • Response to change

  • Confidence

MT has implications for agility, aspiration, performance, engagement and well-being, and can be developed – in fact studies show that up to 25% variation in performance explained by MT.

This workshop covers the key components of MT, how it can be developed and is usually held in conjunction with an assessment, debrief and coaching program.

Manager as Coach

As trust, autonomy and empowerment become key enablers in today’s work environment, its essential managers have the basic coaching skills and mentality in order to build, support and develop their teams most effectively. As managers develop their teams in this framework performance and congruence will be maximised. Instilling a “coaching” vs “managing” approach where communication, connection and developmental pathways become a key retention strategy. Managers will come away from this workshop with new strategies to guide, engage and develop their teams.

Values

Values are our basic and fundamental beliefs that inform our behaviour and actions, and play a significant role in motivation and life satisfaction. This workshop is focussed around helping individuals identify their own personal values, and integrating them into the organisations purpose and vision. By socialising personal values across teams, we can build understanding and connection, leading to more positive relationships, communication and collaboration. 

Small Business Strategy

This 1-day workshop, specifically designed for start-ups and small businesses, helps identify and then integrate personal and organisational values into a clear business vision and purpose. We then incorporate this into business strategy and start shaping milestones, goals and action points to help drive the business forward. This program is ideally coupled with ongoing coaching (individual, group or team) to facilitate goal attainment through the accountability, support and challenge we provide.

Assessments

Genos Emotional Intelligence

Emotional Intelligence (EI) is a set of skills that help us better perceive, understand and manage emotions in ourselves and in others. Collectively they help us make intelligent responses to, and use of, emotions. These skills are as important as your intellect (IQ) in determining success in work and in life. Everyone, no matter what job function, has interactions with other people. Your capacity to understand your emotions, to be aware of them and how they impact the way you behave and relate to others, will improve your ‘people skills and help you ultimately be more satisfied and successful.

Applied Emotional Intelligence – The Difference It Makes:

In the workplace, emotional intelligence underlies our self-awareness, empathy, leadership and resilience. In our world of ‘do more with less’, where continuous change is the norm and effective collaboration is essential, these skills are fundamental to our success. People who have been through our programs feel better at work, facilitate more productive work environments, and better lead and engage others.
