One-to-One Coaching

As a performance coach, I am a sounding board, facilitator, awareness raiser, and supporter.

Partnering with managers, executives and leaders in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximise their personal and professional potential.

What is Coaching?

Coaching is a personal one-to-one conversation that uses a collaborative, goal-focused relationship to achieve intended outcomes. The Coach works with the client encouraging self-discovery and assisting in designing a plan that holds the client accountable for making changes. 

Coaching is quickly becoming one of the leading tools that successful people are using in order to enhance their lives allowing them to lead extraordinary lives.

Coaching is all about a journey, focusing on future possibilities, not past mistakes.

How coaching works?

Coaching is creating the conditions for learning and growth. 

During a coaching session, we focus on your challenges and opportunities, exploring solutions and actions required to achieve your intended outcomes.

Improving performance is paramount, so we focus on how that is best achieved and sustained. Together we will delve deep into your skills and abilities and develop a roadmap toward unlocking your full potential.

Sessions are usually one-to-one conversations together with the use of assessments, and evaluations with key stakeholders help to identify the scope of our engagement.

I believe we can all reach our potential and develop the skillsrequired to deal with changing environments.

Coaching enhances overall employee engagement and efficiency, whilst making a positive impact on a company’s culture.

Client Challenge – Emily was creating a very high level of perfection required for herself and taking herself on a guilt trip by listening to the destructive voices in her head. She was feeling lonely, and unsupported. Her business pressures made it difficult to create a balance of quality family time and finding time for herself. Key issues were severe work pressure, self-hijack, feeling of unfulfillment, and stress that decreased her efficiency.
Client solution – Together with Emily we identified her ideal vision creating goals and objectives. Emily completed a PRISM Professional Assessment Report that provided accurate self-awareness that was essential for her to be able to make the changes in her life. Over 6-months, we worked together to create the change and growth she desired. Emily also developed coach like skills in her management style. Emily used the coaching conversations as a sounding board, she felt able to express herself in a confidential, non-judgemental, setting and able to get an external perspective.

Results – Emily empowered her direct reports developing trust in her team and allowing her to step out of some processes allowing her to be proactive and in control. Emily ignited fresh passions, dedicating quality time to her family and identifying time for herself to refresh and destress along the week. Emily worked particularly on actions raising her Self-Awareness, Authenticity, Self-Management, and skills to Inspire Performance. Emily amplified her confidence by managing her inner critic and feeling better able to realise her potential.
Feedback – “It was immensely helpful to talk to Karl, I’m so grateful that my Coach meets me where I am in such an accepting, focused and collaborative way. Within 90 days I noticed progress on some of the challenges and anxieties I had. I am aware of the areas I have made improvements in, such as the crippling fear that I am not good enough. I am also starting to rephrase the negative messages and give myself space for self-compassion. Small steps feel like GIANT leaps right now! I highly recommend Karl!"
