Qualified Executive Coaching can help busy executives achieve and sustain their peak performance. It is not remedial, not for ‘problem’ leaders or those who need a crutch to lean on. A better metaphor is sports coaches. Like them, an executive coach is focussed on helping their client envision their goals and achieve them. Improving their self-awareness and strengthening their ability to develop themselves and be a more effective leader in different situations.
Paul Laughlin is a qualified executive coach. Having achieved a Level 7 ILM qualification in Executive Coaching & Mentoring, Paul is also an associate with the Association for Coaching and is bound by their Global Code of Ethics. This includes an ongoing commitment to CPD, as well as his work with a qualified supervisor (from University of South Wales). The implications of this code, of best practice, are explained to clients at initial ‘chemistry’ meeting, as well as the benefits and protections it affords to both client & coach.
Coaching programmes normally consist of 6, 9 or 12 monthly sessions of 90 minutes – depending on the goals that the client is seeking to achieve. Alongside goal setting and active listening, a range of approaches or models may be used if appropriate (and if the client agrees). Previous clients have benefited from use of Goal-orientated coaching, Positive Psychology model, Cognitive Behavioural Coaching, Solution-Focussed Coaching or a more holistic Gestalt Coaching approach.
Throughout coaching sessions, the goal is what will help the client achieve their goals and be able to sustain their performance themselves. Our coaching & mentoring services complement our other services by enabling clients to be self-sufficient; no longer needing further external consultancy or training.
