Being there for others, whether Friend, Mentor, Coach or Counsellor May 1st
This one-day course is designed to increase personal effectiveness in communicating with others when you are offering support.
Understand the boundaries and limits of your support as a friend, colleague or mentor. When does this move into coaching or counselling?
Engage with appropriate referral processes, understand what would be helpful. Learn communication tools for engaging in 'active listening' skills and help the other person to cope with the situations they are experiencing.
If you were thinking of a career in Counselling then it will help you to understand whether this is possibly the right option for you and give you an understanding of what Counselling is and what it is not.
This course is suitable for individuals and corporate work groups - please enquire if you would like this course resented to your workforce.

When thinking about looking for Coaching what should you consider
We all think that help is something people who are weak or cant cope do, Not So. We all need help at sometime or another form someone who has expertise or knowledge which would be helpful, after all if my car stopped working I would take it to a garage they are the experts and have the knowledge to help get my car back on the road. Well Coaches are like the Mechanic, Mechanics understand why vehicles go wrong Coaches understand why Humans cant make quality choices or decisions.
On picking your Coach you need to be mindful of what type of Coach you are looking for, a personal Coach or a business Coach, it should be someone you feel comfortable with they should be approachable answer any questions you have and give you a brief interview free of charge. Once you have found your preferred Coach then they will not tell you what to do, that is not there job, they will help you to make your choices or decisions with good quality clear tools, to get the thoughts out of your head on to paper to clarify, prioritise, engage and implement those choices and decisions.
So have a positive view of asking for help, see that request for help as a motivated process of engagement and get that fulfilled life you want.
Is your business needing an upgrade
Most businesses get to a point, usually in a seven year cycle, which then can make them dis-organised and unproductive, this usually is focused on the inter personal aspects of your employees rather than the organisations structure itself. Did you know on average it costs three times an employees income to recruit another person for the role. If only you could tweak and help individuals and groups to interact and communicate better, build positive reward programs and make them feel happier in coming to work in the first place then the likely hood is that they would stay with you.
The old saying happy workers make more productive workers is true. We all generally go to work to earn money to support the lifestyle we choose but if we feel supported and happy in our role we go that extra mile.
So in looking at your business then you may, by making a small financial investment in an employee review and implementation program, tweak the structures and communicative aspects of your employee's world and also the business in order to make happier more connected people, who then would help each other to achieve greater productivity increasing financial results for your business, benefiting everyone within the company.
Call Ian today so I can arrange a free face to face meeting to assess your needs, build a bespoke program and to make your next seven years a productive one.
