All coaching packages/assignments are designed on an individual basis according to the needs, priorities and expectations of the client and, where applicable, the sponsor organisation. Sophie will select different models, tools or approaches accordingly.
Leadership and Transition Coaching
Sophie specialises in leadership and transition coaching. She has ILM Level 7 in Executive Coaching and Leadership Mentoring and the Advanced Certificate in Executive Coaching. She has over 15 years coaching experience.
- Leadership coaching focuses on the talents, attitudes, skills, knowledge, behaviour and style of executives and senior personnel. It is about helping leaders to maximise their performance and delivery by gaining greater insight, setting better goals, reaching those goals faster, making better decisions and improving professional relationships.
- Transition coaching supports individuals through change. This might be organisational imposed change or personal change through choice. Sophie has significant experience in supporting individuals with career development; gaining understanding of personal motivations, identifying opportunities, writing a compelling CV, networking, articulating achievements, delivering an impressive interview and securing the right role.
Evaluation and ROI
Sophie recognises that organisations investing in coaching, need to be assured that the coaching is not undertaken for its own sake but to enable the organisation to achieve its objectives through the people it employs, values and trusts. The coaching Sophie undertakes will be evaluated against objectives agreed with both the sponsor and the client.
Contracting in coaching is essential to ensure that all parties are clear on the purpose, nature and scope of the coaching. The Coaching Agreements will set out objectives, respective responsibilities, how the coaching will be evaluated as well as terms and conditions. Sophie is a member of the EMCC and abides by their Standards of Ethical Conduct.
Structure and Organisation
Sophie’s skills and experience in project management will provide structure to coaching programmes. This will ensure that sessions and times are effectively managed and positive outcomes maximised.
