When coaching leaders, our priority is to help them identify their problems, their goals and discover the best way to reach them. In a sense it is a mirror for the coachee in which they can see themselves from the outside and thus have a better perspective from which to examine their problems and skills and enable them to set out on the road to positive change. The coach does not teach, give advice or provide therapy, he/she eases the coachee along the path of learning, change and development, all the while easing any internal tensions that may be present. Our most commonly used coaching methods are GROW and DIADAL.
Here are a few examples of our many coaching tools:
