Coaching skills

Coaching is a powerful process that can make a real difference in the workplace accelerating personal and professional development, generating responsibility and self-awareness and enhancing staff morale, retention and performance.

We offer coaching skills programmes for managers with a twist – involving a lot of action and participation and quite often golf, water-colour painting and climbing! And our programmes really develop people’s skill level and change behaviour in a very short space of time.

Another aspect of our work is providing professional coaches to provide coaching to follow up leadership programmes, to supervise in-house coaches and also as a stand alone coaching service for managers.

You cannot teach people anything. You can only help them to discover it within themselves.


Shirley has provided us with a framework for taking each individual forward and in so doing has given us the opportunity to create a better school. What more could we ask for?
