Executive Coaching

Focussed, objective based executive coaching can be a significant and powerful contributor to improving individual and organisational performance. Coaching can help in the following areas:

  • managing people more effectively
  • moving into a new role
  • dealing with change management
  • improving communication skills
  • building effective teams
  • realising potential
  • introducing and adapting to business changes
  • improving interpersonal skills
  • managing conflict
  • problem solving

Our coaching can help the individual find fresh perspectives, new ideas and guidance.  The sessions provide a platform for individuals to identify areas for change, unlock blind spots, develop new techniques, improve self-awareness and set deadlines for achievement. They provide the opportunity to look at work-based issues and opportunities within the context of the individual’s own working environment.
Tadpole Training will:

  • Agree specific coaching objectives with the individual and the organisation
  • Develop measurable action plans

The sessions will be underpinned by a variety of psychological theories and models, sound business knowledge and facilitative coaching skills. The style of the sessions will be influenced by the needs of each individual.
