BENEFITS OF COACHING
HR professionals report that gains made for business include building organisational capability and talent pool development; talent retention and increased engagement levels and leadership effectiveness.
Benefits for individuals include a clearer understanding of the impact of their behavioural style, improved communication skills leading to improved workplace relationships and heightened levels of resilience. (Dagley, 2006)
OUR COACHING PROGRAMS
With all our coaching programs, we meet with you and agree the coaching process that will be the best fit for your specific needs. This will include expected deliverables, level of complexity, application of appropriate assessment tools, cost and duration.
Coaching can take place at your workplace or at a convenient meeting place or booked meeting room off site. Virtual coaching using Zoom, Skype or another webinar facility is becoming increasingly popular as it allows flexibility and helps fit with a busy schedule.
Most of our programs are a hybrid model of virtual and some face to face, although during COVID we have moved to all virtual programs which are working very well.
The sessions typically run for 1.5 hours and are scheduled every 2-3 weeks initially then move to monthly. Sessions can also be held remotely depending on the circumstances.
Kingfisher Coaching Services regularly makes donations to charities, including Dress for Success Sydney, Orange Sky and Newtown Neighbourhood Centre.
We are fortunate to work with individuals and organisations from a variety of sectors, including Government, Not for Profit, Corporate and SME's. We value each relationship and work to build a strong understanding of each organisation we work with.
We are passionate about helping our clients reach their goals.
It is great to have my coach in my corner, cheering me on and helping me realise my best leadership performance and potential.
Senior Manager, NSW Government
Coaching has given the time and space to rediscover the importance of me, of the reflection of who I am both as a professional and also as an individual.
