Training in Coaching & Business Mentoring
As well as being an Executive Coach and Business mentor, Philip Atkinson also provides training and development in Coaching & Mentoring. More and more organisations are seeing the need to develop the Coaching abilities of their top teams and their direct reports. It creates the internal capability to manage change, and the obvious benefits include not being reliant on expensive external consultants to drive change into the business.
Coaching & Business Mentoring
Philip provides Business Coaching and mentoring for all variety and size of organisation. He works closely with business owners as well as SME’s and larger ‘blue chips’. Working with owners of small business, he can support them in growing their business. He finds that many business owners have the technical capabilities to support their Clients but they may need support in terms of confidence, motivation, innovation, influence, persuasion, and negotiation in promoting themselves and their business. He can also support them in structuring and rehearsing sales presentations and pitching for new business.
Case Studies in Financial Services
Over the last few years Philip has been focusing on working in Financial services for a major Edinburgh business working in Risk and internal Audit. He has also been Coaching Heads of Internal Audit in Public sector organisations and supporting various Professional Institutes through Regional and Branch presentations
Philip is equally at home working with a small Accountancy, Internet or Legal, IT Business as he is with senior staff in larger organisations. His skills transcend boundaries no matter the size of the organisation and goals can be achieved much faster and easier than the traditional development and learning route. His interventions are tailored to take the Client from where they are currently to where they want to be in terms of ‘being, doing and having’.
He Coaches people in their career development and in their relationships with others. He is qualified in the use of the most advanced battery of psychometric and abilitiy profiling techniques to support the individual’s ability to measure how they relate to self and others. This provides a useful benchmark upon which individuals can take ownership for their own development especially in presentation skills, winning new business and acquiring new customers for his Clients.
Confidence to Achieve Outstanding Results
Philip establishes a strictly private and confidential bond with his Clients who do experience quite extraordinary changes in their skills and their behaviours resulting in achieving goals at a much faster rate than they thought possible. He applies the concepts of accelerated learning and his focus is on getting people to take responsibility for their future by taking action and being decisive.
Working in the Current Economic Climate
Simply put, Philip’s ‘Coaching’ provides far more benefits than traditional training. His programmes are tailored precisely to deal with specific challenges which a Firm or Organisation is experiencing.
In the current business climate, Philip has found that organisations need to achieve ‘more with less’ and this requires a change in management style.
Some Organisations still have an outmoded management style categorised as one of ‘Command and Control’ which is not suited to get the most from colleagues and is not suited for today’s workforce. In order to get the most from people, managers now have to understand the behavioural motives and drives of their staff. Philip will equip his Clients to be able to read and test for this.
Managers under-developed and unskilled to meet current Challenges
Further, many managers who are now in team leading positions may not have been groomed and developed for the challenges they currently face. Philip can help them learn and practise new skills and behaviours so that their ability to manage, persuade and influence is much more effective.
With this input and support, self-esteem and the confidence in managers radically improves so they can be more confident that they can rise to the challenges confronting them. This is especially useful for managers who are working on the periphery of various business units, geographical or branch operations or those interacting with Clients, customers and the supply chain.
Coaching & Mentoring for the Purveyors of Technical Services to Clients
This is even more important in an Organisation which has a strong technical leaning displaying strong professional specialisms in the service they provide. No matter whether the organisations provide legal, engineering, audit, quality, risk, logistics, IT or any other professional services, the ability of the service provider to the Client will be enhanced if they can demonstrate the ‘meta’ skills and influence and negotiation which underpin effective Coaching and Mentoring.
Coaching Skills to External Agencies
So, Coaching and Business mentoring isn’t just a powerful process internally within the Organisation, it is also a very powerful strategy of communication that we can all use to our advantage with clients, customers, end users, consumers, suppliers and stakeholders.
The advantages of creating your own ‘Managing the Coach & Client Relationship’ programme are outlined in this article which Philip wrote a few years ago for the well established–Fenman Group of Publishers.
For further information why not arrange a meeting with Philip so that he can outline the approach and options he will offer you in achieving your potential for self and your organisation. Email email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
