Coaching and mentoring are formed of the helping relationship; a creative, thought-provoking process to inspire and maximise potential, which can be personal, professional or a combination of both. It is a skilled process which includes deep listening, questioning and providing feedback, direction and encouragement.
After a ‘chemistry conversation’ over coffee, phone or the internet, we contract around your goals and aspirations, for a pre-agreed term.
