As an employer you’ll know the value of keeping staff up-to-date with specialist skills, yet how highly do you value their emotional development?
People with strong emotional intelligence (EQ) are highly valued at work because they are:
- effective communicators
- respectful to others
- creative in their approach to situations
- positive in their outlook
- happy in their work
- resilient when things don’t go to plan.
Employees gain confidence and self-reliance
I provide coaching for staff groups to help each person uncover more about themselves and, in doing so, build stronger EQ. Fast Track coaching can also help employees resolve and manage workplace stress.
With Fast Track coaching employees become more confident, self-reliant and willing to contribute. As they gain greater awareness of their talents and natural gifts, they can offer more value to the business.
My style of coaching allows me to cut through the patterns and beliefs that condition us, to quickly reach the core issues people are grappling with. As perspectives begin to shift, your staff will quickly develop:
- confidence in their talents and abilities
- a stronger sense of knowing where they belong and where they are heading
- an ability to relate well and communicate with others
- creative initiative
- a willingness for ongoing growth and learning
- greater clarity on how to contribute.
Workplace coaching to improve morale, productivity and creativity
When morale and productivity are low, Fast Track coaching can help pinpoint the obstacles, stimulate staff and get things back on track. As people expand their awareness, they become more respectful, appreciative and open to others. A workplace practising open communication, respect and appreciation creates harmony; and harmony spurs productivity and creativity.
Internal inspiration beats external motivation
Fast Track coaching meets the needs of each individual rather than following a pre-designed course or programme. Because everyone takes in information in different ways, so too do they take a different route to make discoveries about themselves and appreciate the gifts of others.
Pre-designed programmes may motivate individuals initially, but research shows that, on average, as much as 70 percent of the information given can be lost after 24 hours. This often occurs because motivation comes from an external source, such as guidance from facilitators or insights from motivational speakers.
In my coaching sessions, clients develop an internal source of inspiration. They gradually uncover layers of information about themselves and start to shift their perspective. By arriving at their own inspiration and solutions they are more motivated to apply their learning, both at home and at work.
What topics come up in coaching?
I encourage the group to direct the coaching session into areas of most significance for them on the day. Then again, common topics that often come up are:
- managing and resolving stress
- de-cluttering mind space and work space
- changing habits
- improving time management
- stepping into the ‘stretch zone’
- gaining clarity.
These are really useful starting points because they identify the broad issues people are grappling with in the work environment.
