Asking the questions you need

to answer

in order to progress

 

What is coaching and what does it do?

Coaching is a process of careful, neutral but incisive questioning which enables the person or people being coached to understand themselves better. It can increase skills; provide personal development; build relationships; generate and embed a culture of support, and make people more reflective and resilient.

Coaching is also a relationship. Whether you are an individual looking to move past personal blocks or an organisation trying to change your culture, we will be your partners, your critical friends, asking the questions you need to answer in order to progress, develop and succeed.

What coaching is not

Coaching is not therapy or the chance to unload for an hour. It as much use for people looking to develop and progress as it is for people struggling.

Why a properly-trained coach is important

A good coach will challenge your thinking, but never lead you to an answer. For example: If you tell a friend that you’re debating between two courses of action, they will almost certainly ask for more detail about one or the other. This shows an inherent bias in their thinking that can lead to your thinking being swayed. A coach will invite you to consider how you could make a decision between them.

What ILM means

The ILM is the institute of Leadership and Management. It is a long-standing, trusted organisation that has a many-leveled system of coaching qualifications.
