An offer from Wisewolf – A simple but very effective form of personal and professional development.

Coaching is a simple but very effective form of self development – either professional or personal.

The client and coach work together to promote a change and to help the client become who they want to be; to overcome obstacles to their success.

Coaches work with individuals in their personal life and with executives, managers and others in their professional and business life.  I work with people in the round so I don’t draw a big black line round the personal to distinguish it from the professional, the two often overlap!

But I do work with change and transition.  If you are not going through a change and don’t want to make one, then perhaps I wouldn’t be the right person to work with you.

Many of us have plans about what we want to do, who we want to be and what we want to become.  A coach works with you to find out what is important and how to create the conditions that foster it.

Coaching builds skills; both personal and professional.

It is about growth; both personal and professional.

I started my professional life qualifying as a nurse.  I have many years of experience of working with people and organizations  going through all kinds of change and transition.  And somewhere along the way I did undertake professional training in change management.

You may be starting a new job or a new business, or wanting to improve the way that you communicate with other people.  Or perhaps you want to change careers or make some kind of change in your private life.  Perhaps you need to deal with a difficult boss or a difficult relationship.  Then working with a coach could help you on to the next step.

If you are facing a change in your life or you want to make one, you may wish to take advantage of a special offer.

For a limited period I am offering a FREE half hour telephone coaching taster session to readers of this blog .  If you would like to take advantage of this, please email me at wendymason@wisewolfcoaching.com quoting Code WW1

WHAT IS BUSINESS COACHING?

Business coaching is a powerful approach for those wanting to develop their own careers, or those of their staff, and people facing career transition.

  • Improve leadership and management skills
  • Think through options and develop successful action plans
  • Communicate with people at all levels with authority and confidence
  • Motivate teams and turn them into high performing and highly motivated units
  • Increase commitment to organizational goals

HOW WILL I BENEFIT FROM COACHING? Coaching enhances your ability to learn, create, make desired changes, and achieve goals. In a coaching relationship, your coach works with you to:

  • Get clear about what you want to accomplish
  • Solve problems and eliminate obstacles
  • Set specific goals and make effective action plans
  • Learn new skills and techniques
  • Gain perspective, get feedback, and discover new ideas
  • Stay true to your vision, focused on your goals, and on track with your plans

WHO BECOMES A COACHING CLIENT? Business coaching is appropriate for any manager or professional who wishes to reach their full potential or manage an enforced change to best advantage.

Wendy Mason has depth of experience as a manager, consultant, coach and mentor.

WHEN DO I NEED A BUSINESS COACH? You should consider working with a coach when you are:

  • Wanting to improve the way you carry out your present role
  • Newly promoted
  • Moving from a professional/technical role to general manager
  • Taking on major new project
  • Getting ready for the next promotion
  • Contemplating a career change
  • Wanting to do career stock take before planning for the future
  • Starting a new business
  • Choosing to make significant changes in how your business or organization works
  • Having trouble managing people, projects, or time
  • Facing significant changes in how your business or organization works
  • Facing an enforced personal change like redundancy

IS COACHING DIFFERENT FROM CONSULTING? Yes… and no. Traditional consulting focuses on offering external solutions and prescriptive advice. Coaching facilitates the discovery of answers that are uniquely your own. Your coach provides guidance, expertise, recommendations, and skill-building techniques whenever they are useful, but doesn’t do things for you, nor tell you exactly what to do. Coaching is typically more allied to training or mentoring than it is to consulting, because the emphasis is on your own learning and experience rather than on specific answers provided by an outside expert. Your coach will supply you with ideas, resources, models, and systems that are proven to work, but won’t hand you a completed action plan nor assert that there’s only one right way to accomplish your goals.

HOW DO I GET STARTED? One-on-one coaching can happen in one to one meetings or over the phone. You may offer ongoing coaching or single sessions. You may also choose coaching for your management, project team or work group.
Ongoing coaching relationships begin with an initial session to create an overall strategy. Regular coaching sessions are the held weekly, biweekly, or monthly.
Single or “a la carte” coaching sessions are available at an hourly rate. Your first session has a one-hour minimum; subsequent sessions may be shorter if desired.
On-site team coaching is available in half-day or full-day sessions. You may also wish to consider follow-up group sessions via teleconference.
