Company coaching helped us uncover our blind spots as a team.

Top ways your business can benefit from company coaching:

CoachDirectors’ Company Coaching Methodology is proven across all areas of business

Large-scale business-wide intervention, OR focused on team & departmental engagement

Enhanced effectiveness from providing support for individuals and groups

Enterprise cultural shift cascaded in one-on-ones, group coaching and seminars

Integrated performance improvement from forward strategy to customer service

Our Approach

We are pragmatic, consultative and results-oriented with an emphasis on delivering outstanding quality in everything we do.

Company coaching programmes focus on the success of the company and explore how individuals and teams can best support that success. Our elite company coaches draw upon an extensive range of personal experiences, tools and business methodologies to help progressive organisations realise their vision for the business. We measure our success by agreeing benchmark expectations and then co-creating a plan to exceed them.

Coaching where the value goes straight to the bottom line

Whereas executive coaching supports the momentum and performance of individuals, company coaching focuses on optimising the operating model of an entire business to build momentum and drive sustainable value to the whole organisation. Working directly on the means by which each company executes its strategy and business model, specialist company coaches partner with senior leadership teams to define, measure and develop the key processes, resources, abilities and behaviours necessary to deliver outstanding success.  

Delivering Business Momentum On An Enterprise Scale

We work ‘company-wide’ with progressive organisations of all shapes and sizes and we challenge them to 'step-up' to the task of realising the full potential of their business.

The FACTS about our company coaching services

WHY

No business leader is perfect. We all have weaknesses, regardless of our many talents and successes.

Fortunately, most ambitious business leaders tend to share a natural desire for self-improvement along with a keen attention to their own effectiveness. The very best leaders amongst us are brutally honest with themselves, seeing reality for what it is and then taking action to address those weaknesses. But how can they begin to deal with the weaknesses and threats they just can't see? What about their blind spots?

A blind spot can be defined as 'any area in the lives of people in which they continually do not see themselves or their situation realistically'. Blind spots can affect anyone and everyone and a significant risk occurs to the whole business when leaders and teams fail to address them.

Even in the healthiest of business environments, individual or collective weaknesses and threats can slip through the management net. Force of habit, culture, over-confidence in one's own capabilities, and the lack of quality feedback from overly deferential subordinates, are just some of the factors that get in the way.

So how can business leaders see past their blind spots to ensure that they are not misled about their performance and, more importantly, fail to provide the kind of objective, supportive and collaborative leadership that their people deserve?

The answer invariably points towards high quality coaching. To skillfully identify and manage our own vulnerabilities often requires an external, objective stimulus to challenge our perceptions and encourage healthy, open dialogue. That's where company coaching comes in.

As one of the UK's leading specialist providers of coaching to businesses, our mission is to challenge the status quo, to 'raise the bar' and to help shape a better future for all business people everywhere - to the benefit of the world around us.

We tend to focus on UK assignments but international coaching can be undertaken by a combination of video conferencing and, where economically viable, by commuting from our London, UK base.
