Building leadership skills and enhancing career growth potential for leaders and their teams across the UK and Ireland
WE USE CONSTELLATIONS IN OUR WORK WITH TEAMS
THIS SYSTEMIC TEAM COACHING APPROACH IMPROVES COLLABORATION AND CREATIVITY, HELPING TO BRING ABOUT CHANGE
Every business, particularly at times of challenge, uncertainty and change, can benefit from developing a coaching culture which builds the skills of its leaders and their teams
At JK Executive Coaching we work with our clients across the UK and Ireland on a variety of individual and team-based coaching assignments.
Our coaching facilitates personal and professional growth, supporting clients in a variety of ways, for example:
We use telephone and digital coaching to supplement our support for clients. We also use Twitter (@JKExecCoaching) to publish coaching content and information for leaders.
Using a variety of approaches including cognitive behavioural coaching, motivational interviewing, positive psychology and mindfulness, 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. Increasingly, our clients also enjoy guided reflective practice.
Recent research 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 also point to the positive therapeutic and restorative 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, canal paths, riversides and roof gardens can make perfect venues for outdoor coaching!
