Individual Coaching (for organisations and private individuals)

Some of the many previous coaching scenarios we have worked with: supporting a manager who has just moved into a new role, a department head who needed to bring about change, a bright non-manager who could aspire to greater responsibility. Our approach to coaching, backed up by training and experience, can cater for a variety of needs.

TIFF profiling

Building constructive relationships is fundamental to success.  
The Temple Index of Functional Fluency is a behavioural profiling tool which provides:

  • Insights into how you use your energy
  • Understanding of your strengths and development needs as managers and colleagues
  • Guidance on how to be more effective

We offer TIFF profiling in 1:1 coaching sessions
