We have seen, time and time again, the tangible benefits that executive coaching can bring to an individual, their team and organisation. It stimulates new thought processes, enhances motivation, clarifies ideas and direction and kick-starts a series of actions focused on achieving defined objectives
This is a question we are often asked, and happy to answer, as they are two different ways for learning: a trainer holds the knowledge which he/she shares with you, whereas a coach believes that you already have the knowledge and ‘just’ need help to draw upon this to find your own solutions. There are overlaps as the trainer may employ coaching to help you apply the new knowledge, and the coach may share models and insights during the coaching to help you see the issue and the solutions from new perspectives.
We are very active in helping raise the standards of coaching and mentoring, and are big advocates for coaches treating this as a professional discipline. It’s important to ask what qualifications the coach has undertaken and whether they are members of a professional body and have signed up to their Code of Ethics. Some coaches do operate without these credentials and are best avoided to ensure you receive the best possible service. All our coaches are professionally qualified. Quiver Management is a member of EMCC and has signed up to their Global Code of Ethics.
Firstly, make sure that they are well qualified, experienced and members of a professional body. Secondly, ask about their style and approach to coaching – evaluate whether this is what you are looking for. Lastly, evaluate whether you feel you have a good chemistry with the coach.
You can expect to learn a lot about yourself, gain new perspectives and ideas and to leave energised and empowered to take positive action. But it will also be challenging and don’t be surprised if you are exhausted at the end of the sessions. This is normal but shows that the process is working!
This can vary widely depending on which areas you are looking to be coached on. However, as a guide: It will most likely be at least 3 sessions and not more than 12. Our standard executive coaching engagements are 6 two-hour sessions over 6 months, with the options to finish earlier if the goals are achieved quickly or to extend for another 6 months. We actively discourage a coaching arrangement to go beyond 12 months.
Yes, this is a speciality of ours. We are big believers in spreading the benefits of coaching into organisations. Our Certificate in Coaching and Mentoring for Leaders, which is a European Quality Awarded coaching qualification, is very popular. The qualification is very practical and can be completed in just 2 months. We also run 1-day and 2-day coaching training courses for managers.
