“The biggest mistake in seeking guidance is to ask someone who might tell you what you want to hear.”

Jon Allen

what is coaching?


Coaching is getting support from another person in order to achieve a particular goal that is currently eluding you.  A great coach creates time, space and asks the right questions that give you the answers you need.

Jon Allen Here is a sample of some of the goals I’ve supported my clients to achieve…
  • Voicing my opinion in front of my senior team
  • Saying No and challenging my boss
  • Energising and motivating my new team
  • Speaking at an event in front of 200 people
  • Sharing some tough feedback to a colleague
  • Building effective working relationships
  • Leading a cultural change programme

Range of clients include…

  • Senior Executives
  • Brand Managers
  • HR Directors

integrity


I have 7 years coaching experience and have received most of my training through the Coaches Training Institute (CTI).  Their programmes are fully accredited by the International Coaching Federation (ICF) – the worldwide regulatory body for coaching. 

My own development in this field is constant and vitally important to me to ensure that I continue to be the best coach I can be and serve my clients with the utmost integrity.

approach


I work with CTI’s Co-Active® model.  It holds that people are naturally creative, resourceful and completely capable of finding their own answers to whatever challenges they face. The job of a Co-Active Coach® is to ask powerful questions, listen and observe to elicit the skills and creativity a client already possesses, rather than instruct or advise.

My style is unique to me. I build trusting relationships, listen intently and where necessary get straight to the heart of the matter. 

next steps


The first step of a coaching relationship with me is a free ‘sample session’ where we both get a taster of what our relationship might look like.

Assuming we’re both up for it we’ll then have a 2 hour discovery session to agree an overall agenda and working relationship.  Typical coaching relationships are once a week or 3 times a month and can be on the telephone or face-to-face.
