Coaching Programmes for productive and motivated teams
We spend over 60% of our time at work and so it is very important for us to feel happy, motivated and engaged in our workplace. Work is also often a place where we look to achieve personal growth and success.
One of the main reasons why employees leave a company is because they do not feel appreciated.
Organisations who invest in their people and value them have more efficient and effective teams and greater business success.
We live in a fast changing environment where demands on both individuals and teams can be overwhelming. It is common in such cases for individuals to feel more and more up against it and isolated rather than work collaboratively. The result is that people can become extremely busy but not always doing the right things.
Effective Team Coaching helps individuals to feel more supported and teams to focus on their key priorities with everyone actively supportive of each other and meeting their own personal needs at the same time.
After 18 years of working in Occupational Health and then doing the Corporative and Executive Life Coaching Programme 6 years ago I began working with small to medium sized companies to create happy, strong, focused and highly functional teams.
As a result of working closely with the teams, managers and individuals any company can expect :
- Greater efficiency, productivity, service, quality and costs
- Raised morale
- Increase in staff retention
- More energy and offered at work
- A significant improvement in staff relationships.
I offer 3 key coaching programmes :
- Coping with Stress - Learning Mindfulness Exercises
- Achieving Work-Life Balance - Taking The The Passion Test
- Understanding behaviours - DISC Profiling
Coping with Stress 1 day programme
According to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), in 2014/15, 440,000 people in the UK reported work-related stress at a level they believed was making them ill. This shows that stress accounts for 40% of cases of workplace sickness in the UK.
The training programme helps individuals to:
- Clearly identify the key signs and symptoms of stress in themselves and others around them
- Take responsibility for managing their own health and behaviours
- Learn and use several tools to relieve the symptoms and become more emotionally resilient
Achieving Work-Life Balance Half Day or 1 day Programme
Most people these days find it hard to switch off from work completely even when they are off or on holiday. If work is going well, we tend to give more and more time to it. This means that we lose our ability to relax and spend less time doing the things we enjoy or being with people we love. If work is not going so well, we fear losing our jobs or dread going into work, knowing that the day ahead is unlikely to be enjoyable.
Achieving a healthy work life balance is paramount in each of feeling happy in ourselves. When we feel happy, we work more efficiently and are a pleasure to be around.
1 day programme includes:
Morning workshop - What does work-life balance mean to me?
This session involves each person in a group setting taking The Passion Test (link to Taking the Passion Test) to clearly identify what their top 5 priority areas are in their life right now to achieve a healthier and happier work life balance.
Afternoon workshop - What is stopping me from achieving a healthy work-life balance right now?
This session will help you to become aware of emotional blocks or behavioural patterns that are preventing you from enjoying your life to the full and will give you tools and techniques to help you become more resilient and focus more attention on yourself.
Half Day programme can be either of the above workshops.
Understanding Behaviours using DISC Profiling Half Day programme
Our disposition, mood and feelings impact everything from our ability to make effective decisions to the level of our creativity and ability to work well with others. One of the most important aspects of working collaboratively with others is understanding our own and others’ behaviours.
Conflict often occurs between people because we are unable to relate to them. This prevents us from feeling any level of empathy for them and may even lead to us being very critical. All of this can lead to great tension in the environment and poor communication.
DISC profiling can be used with everyone in an Organisation, regardless of title or role, to build more effective relationships.
I am a qualified DISC Facilitator and offer a half day team coaching DISC awareness programme as well as 1-2-1 coaching.
What is DISC?
DISC is an acronym based on four basic personality groupings, everyone falling into one or more of the following categories, there are 42 different types.
- How is it done in a team?
Each person completes a simple and brief questionnaire online. Participants receive an in-depth personalised style index and an at-a glance overview of the other styles and how they interact with them.
Leadership and Management Training
The self-knowledge and understanding of others’ behaviour will have an immediate and profound impact on everyone’s performance. This is a powerful and effective way to help people in Leadership and Managerial roles to understand their own communication styles and develop the most effective ways of bringing the best out in each member of the team, understanding how to work with each of the individuals’s strengths and weaknesses.
Individual Behaviour Management and Team Building
DISC is a very useful tool to work with when dealing with individual behavioural issues which may be affecting the whole team’s performance. Confidential 1-2-1 coaching is most effective in these instances with excellent results.
Team Coaching Fees onsite
The fee for half day programmes is £350 and £500 for full day programmes within a 10 mile radius of Chalfont St Peter. This is for up to 6 people attending. Larger groups may cost more.
All team coaching programmes are offered onsite.
