There is considerable empirical evidence that coaching improves individual learning and leads to behaviour change.
At The Keil Centre we have more than 10 years' of providing coaching to senior executives from a wide range of organisations. We believe that the best approach is to combine the rigour of assessment techniques with ongoing one-to-one challenge, support and monitoring of progress against agreed objectives. Every coaching relationship is unique. Typically we would:
- Agree the aims of the coaching process, success criteria and timescales
- Assess the key issues for the client using a variety of instruments and techniques, for example, interview, 360 degree assessment and psychometric questionnaires
- Agree a plan of action to progressively improve in workplace settings - providing challenge and support as necessary
- Review progress and plan the next phase to achieve the agreed objectives.
Coaching is designed to focus on people's strengths, skills and aspirations, unblocking the obstacles to achieving their potential. We draw on a wide range of research-based tools and methods to increase self awareness and personal insight, and to explore options for ways of moving forward. Between sessions the individual is encouraged to apply their learning, experiment with techniques and alternative approaches and reflect on their impact.
'Having access to professional coaching support has been extremely valuable. In particular, I have learned a lot about my own leadership style and how I can be more effective in getting the best from people, including in difficult situations'
'I have found the coaching offered by The Keil Centre of enormous value and of far greater benefit than any other form of training or development work that I have ever undertaken.'
