About JK Executive Coaching

Collaborative Coaching

image402

Every business, particularly at times of challenge, uncertainty and change, can benefit from developing a coaching culture which fosters performance improvement and

 growth.


At JK Executive Coaching we deliver coaching for people leaders, executives, professionals and teams across all industries and business types.


We aim to support our clients in the following ways:

  • Bringing about behavioural change
  • Prompting personal desire and accountability for change
  • Managing transitions
  • Managing stress and anxiety
  • Enhancing motivation and goal congruence
  • Team development 
  • Team facilitation
  • Maximising cross-cultural influences


We use telephone and digital coaching to supplement our coaching support for clients.

Coaching Methodology

image403

Using a Cognitive Behavioural approach with an additional use of Mindfulness and Motivational Interviewing techniques, our coaching style incorporates a range of evidence-based practice. This can also include the use of values or strengths clarification, creative tools, personality profiling, cultural orientation analysis and other psychometrics.


Evidence suggests that a flexible and inclusive coaching approach results in improved personal and professional performance, increased motivation, enhanced well-being and the development of more effective coping strategies. 


Several recent studies point to the positive therapeutic effects of spending time in nature, and to the connection between mental and physical health. Therefore, as part of our approach for individual clients, we incorporate coaching whilst walking, and coaching in nature.

Even in the largest cities, parks, riversides and roof gardens can make perfect venues for outdoor coaching!
