As their coach, I will work with them using proven tools and techniques to develop their self-awareness, self-belief and confidence which are often at the lowest in times of transition. The learner will benefit from having this independent support through this self-development phase.
The benefits you will see as their manager is a highly performing member of your team with greater chances of attaining the goals you set them and someone that has stronger communication skills to work with other teams.

Flo, an apprentice said of coaching with Kathryn, “I was quite nervous of going into coaching having never used it before however I had no reason to be apprehensive as Kathryn made me feel at ease from the start by being an independent pair of ears and creating a trusting and respectful environment to engage in. I have been amazed at how valuable this experience has been and in such a short space of time I have gained confidence in my decisions and have a clear action plan at the end of each session to move me towards my long-term goals”.
