What is Coaching?

A partnership to develop your soft skills

Coaching is universally considered the most powerful professional development method.

It is a highly personalised practice, implying a close and confidential relationship between the coach and the client (coachee). By meeting face to face with managers or leaders within an organisation, the coach provides highly operational and always goal-oriented support, redefined from time to time.

The coach allows the manager to understand their current skills, to see how they are perceived by others and to focus on identifying development goals, as well as on effective action plans. The coaching sessions are therefore led directly by the objectives that the client wants to achieve in the short-, medium- and long-term.

According to the description provided by the International Coach Federation (ICF), coaching is a partnership with the client, a growth process that inspires them to maximise their personal and professional potential. Coaching is a client-driven process different from other professions such as counselling, mentoring or training. Thanks to the operational support of the coach, it is the clients themselves who develop the techniques and action strategies aimed at improving their performance.

  • Leadership Development

What we offer

Services

Work-related Stress Management

Our integrated approach includes counseling sessions, a self-assessment and the development of a personalized plan with effective strategies to productively manage periods of stress.

With an evidence-based approach and the proven techniques of the Persolog® system, we are committed to promoting personal well-being and work-life balance.

At the heart of our approach lies the assessment process, carefully designed to identify the unique needs and challenges of everyone we serve. Through a combination of questionnaires and evaluation systems, we gain valuable insights.

Once gathered, this data undergoes thorough analysis, pinpointing the key stressors at play. With this understanding, we can then craft targeted intervention plans, precisely calibrated to address pecific needs.

Moreover, this tool allows us to track progress over time and fine-tune intervention strategies as needed. This holistic approach translates progress into tangible results, underscoring our commitment to your well-being.

When to embark on this path:

  • When experiencing periods of anxiety, stress and resignation linked to dissatisfaction with your work 
  • When physically exhausted, frequently unmotivated and worried
  • When experiencing interpersonal conflicts that you cannot resolve
  • When your role is not clear 
  • When in a career transition

Counseling for expats

The expat counseling service supports professionals and families who

  • plan to move to a new country,
  • live abroad,
  • want to return to their country of origin,

and who wish to effectively address the challenges related to cultural, social and work adaptation. Cultural adaptation is a unique journey for each person, often starting with excitement but sometimes leading to feelings of anxiety and loss. Lack of a social network can contribute to isolation.

If the relocation is work-related, the pressures from the new role can be significant, carrying the weight of ensuring the right decision was made. Having support to navigate relational challenges in a multicultural setting, manage teams, and adapt leadership under such circumstances can make all the difference. 

Our service offers tailored online sessions to support every step of the adaptation process. From initial assessment to personalized plans, we provide:

  • Emotional support for expressing concerns (e.g. “What will I do with elderly parents?”, “How will I communicate this to the children?”) and mediating between parties
  • Stress management for individuals, couples, and families
  • Cultural insights to ease transition into the new environment
  • Professional and relational guidance in cross-cultural environments (cross-cultural leadership and teams)
  • Personal and professional development for spouses

Leadership development

The concept of leadership has been researched extensively for many years, with the goal of discovering a variety of professional leadership styles. Establishing additional growth plans requires an understanding of each leader’s or potential leader’s unique skill set and style.

Initial steps in leadership development generally involve using 360° feedback in conjunction with specific Persolog© self-assessment exercises. This consists of collecting feedback/opinions on the coachee (client) from supervisors, colleagues, and subordinates and in a self-assessment programme.

Following the collection of data on technical, soft, and communication skills, we assist the client in determining the areas of development that require the greatest attention in order to formulate effective plans of action.

When to embark on this path:

  • Development of listening skills and assertiveness
  • Team management
  • Leadership styles assessment
  • Effective relationships and communications

When is coaching useful?

  • Improving personal and managerial objectives
  • Tackling a change of role, industry or country
