Managers often benefit from having an experienced and independent professional to discuss current issues and key decisions with. Coaching is normally task and performance oriented, lasting some weeks or months. A programme of coaching can be an invaluable tool to;

  • Ensure alignment with corporate goals

  • Support goal achievement

  • Address current challenges

  • Improve communication skills

  • Form a personal development programme

  • Support adjustment to the company culture

  • Reward and retain a high performer



This is normally a more medium term activity, focused on personal advancement. Both parties get to know one another, enabling the mentor to provide support and guidance that is goes beyond competencies to address professional and personal development. Particularly relevant in succession planning.
