Resilience - Coaching for resilience
One-to-one coaching is a core element in The Resilience Programme, and our clients consistently feed back that they would like to have access to regular support whilst they work towards their goals. We understand the importance of continuing to support our clients on an individual basis, and we therefore offer the opportunity for anyone to book one-to-one coaching sessions with a coach of their choice. Coaching provides you with the opportunity to continue to check in and work on your personal goals, challenges and development as time progresses. Our coaching is delivered in the tranquil environment of The Hope Street Centre, giving you the opportunity to leave behind the demands of day-to-day life and focus for a while on yourself, your work and what you are aiming for.
Your coach is somebody who can help you realise your goals more quickly than you can by yourself. Your coach is focused exclusively on helping you achieve your potential. Coaching allows us to take back control of our situation, to stop battling at effect and move ourselves to cause, where we can purposefully make the changes we want.
Coaching enables us to achieve our full potential by assisting us to identify and re-assess our limiting beliefs, to confidently use our talents and personal resources to make a difference - and be recognised for making that difference.
Coaching guides us to express where and how we want to contribute our talents and values, and helps us to sensitively position ourselves so that we can achieve our ambitions - and ultimately our dreams.
When is coaching successful?
Typically, coaching is helpful when someone:
• feels stuck in a situation or pattern of behaviour and have not yet broken free
• believes that they are not achieving as they hoped or expected, for example in their career
• is preparing to make a change, for example a career move
• wants to develop or improve a personal skill, for example networking or giving presentations
• has recently made a change in their life or career and is “fitting in” to the new situation
Coaching is often associated with the future, identifying and working towards goals. This is incredibly useful; however, we also recognise that sometimes a very specific work issue may be getting in the way of your progress. This could take the form of a problem you are trying to solve, a process that isn’t working out or a technical concern that you would like to take a different approach to.
In these instances, coaching can provide you with the opportunity to step outside of the issue and take a look at it, with your coach, from a different perspective. Having the chance to explore a variety of solutions, with someone who is able to understand the situation from your perspective and be on your side whilst you work it through, is often enough to help you move forwards.
What is expected from you
Realising the changes that you want to make in your life is dependent upon:
• your commitment to being punctual to our sessions
• your considered reflection and feedback about what you have learned from each session
• your initial commitment to a minimum of four one hour sessions. Our experience is that you will get the best results after four to six sessions
You will agree with your coach:
• the frequency of sessions, e.g. weekly, bi-weekly, monthly
• the duration of your sessions
• We utilise a number of powerful and flexible tools, techniques and interventions in our coaching. These assist in uncovering and laying out before us the ways in which we perceive our own personal experience and the filters we have applied to create that perception; our values and our deeply - often unconsciously - held beliefs; who we believe ourselves to be; and our personal mission in life.
• Some of the tools we use are the PAC Model, Drama Triangle, 6 Human Psychological Needs, The GROW Model and Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), Hypnotherapy, Jungian Psychology, and the Emotional Freedom Technique. In order to assess the areas in which you would like to make the most significant change, we may also ask you to complete a Wheel of Life questionnaire.
What makes coaching with The Resilience Programme unique?
All of our coaches have had personal experience of excellent informal and formal coaching, and have experienced the difference coaching can make to the ways in which they think, act and feel. In addition, each of our coaches is fully committed to their own personal and professional development, and have certainly worked through significant personal adversity before beginning their journey of helping other people.
It is this commitment that enables a coach to truly walk the talk - to know and understand how it feels to be in the client’s position: wanting change but having to work through some challenging barriers in order to get there.
