About us

The Coaching Consultancy
 

   Our Approach

My coach’s vitality was infectious. A most enjoyable experience. She quickly identified the issues by listening and applying a very logical analysis.

She was brimming with original marketing ideas and provided a fresh detached approach.

All of our executive coaches are qualified with coach-specific training and have a business background. We believe that coaching is a specific discipline and we provide training and supervision to our coaches.

Business coaching has evolved into a specific discipline which is independently accredited by the International Coach Federation. (ICF).

Business coaching of this type is a specific profession with a growing set of standards, as you would expect to be applied to other professions. It is our philosophy that professional coaching must be presented as a single offering and not simply as part of a wider in-house business service offering by existing companies. In other words, our view is that executive coaching has substance and application as a profession, not simply as a verb.

At the Coaching Consultancy we believe that coaching is a discipline that must be learnt as well as practised. All of our coaches have had significant amounts of coach-specific training. Some of our coaches are already ICF accredited and the others are going through the lengthy accreditation process. It has only been in the past two or three years that the ICF has become a fully independent coaching association, without any corporate affiliation. As the accreditation system in Europe is in its early stages, many of our more experienced coaches have not finished the accreditation process. However, we believe that their experience still remains the key qualification for coaches today. We expect all of our coaches to have ICF accreditation within the next two years.

Furthermore, we only work with people who come from a business background or have been working commercially with coaching for some time.

When working with an executive, coaching is about teaching and explaining concepts that will help in their role. However, coaching also includes the ability to explore limiting beliefs which affect performance. There is a requirement to provide specific support to leaders who are planning significant strategies for their organisation.

In addition, therefore, executive coaching is a form of personal facilitation to ensure that goals are reached and different perspectives considered. This is done in a positive supporting framework.

Many coaches are sole traders who do not have the resources appropriate for the requirements of a larger organisation. There are many barely qualified individuals, (whom we do not consider to have had the appropriate level of training,) who have turned to coaching as an alternative career.

The Coaching Consultancy prides itself on delivering highly trained and experienced executive coaches and conducting business in a professional manner.
