Why engage CoachStation for leadership and business coaching and mentoring?

Business coaching increases opportunity for you to develop greater awareness and find solutions through facilitated discussions. As well as in coaching, we use our extensive business experience to provide our clients with relevant examples and insights to guide you to reach your potential. Crucially, the ability to apply change and take action through your own decisions will make the difference.

Why is coaching the best tool for people to make such a significant difference in business and in their personal life? Our own experiences and the ‘Sherpa Guide’ coaching book provide clarity regarding the power of coaching as a personal and professional development tool:

Leadership can be lonely: Leaders often feel isolated, unable or unwilling to share information with team members. Additionally, leaders can feel as though they need to have all the answers and can be quite stressful.

Coaching encourages clients to understand themselves: The CoachStation Coaching model works through the coachees situation, identifying development areas and opportunities for growth and improvement. Tools such as StrengthsFinder and Values Assessments identify and develop innate strengths. We use many different resources, all designed as triggers for self-awareness, discussion-points, action and clarity. Targeted and individualised programs focus on the ‘right’ area which will provide the most benefit.

Coaching enables honesty: In the workplace employees are often allowed to avoid confrontation. They sidestep challenges, procrastinate and sometimes actively or passively refuse to address things that matter the most – few people like confrontation, but when avoided problems continue to build.

Improved Results and Outcomes: One of the most important elements of coaching and mentoring is the increased influence on results. By learning how to focus on the inputs and building stronger teams, the leader is more able to have a direct influence on results.

Coaching supports change: During inductions, for newly promoted staff and other business change can be supported through coaching and the commitment to develop each individuals skills and competencies.

Coaching develops self and others: leading to confidence and strength in developing others, a critical step in a leaders development.

Every client has a unique situation, personality, values and beliefs. CoachStation primarily works within the workplace, personal, leadership and business coaching sectors.

We focus on developmental, situational and remedial development and improvement. Through a structured program you will see and feel a difference…and so will those around you.
