Being ready for change
Working with individuals and their organisations
Organisations in every sector face complexity and change at an increasingly rapid rate. Executive Coaching is a focused and effective way to help your executives meet the specific challenges they face.
Our Executive Coaching is highly tailored to the needs of the individual in the context of their organisation and delivered to professionally Accredited Standards.
Our coaches are carefully selected and meet accreditation standards expected by ICF (International Coaching Federation) or EMCC (European Mentoring and Coaching Council) – in addition, our coaches need to be able to demonstrate a combination of business experience, business consulting and coaching expertise.
What is Executive Coaching?
There has been an explosion of Coaches and Coaching Services on the market, Executive Coaching is increasingly seen as a significant way of contributing to an organisations change and management agenda. We would first like to clarify what we mean by coaching and then follow with some insights about the benefits of having coaching.
Tim Gallwey is largely credited with bringing coaching into the arena of business life. He started as a tennis coach and wrote a book called the "Inner Game of Tennis". He subsequently wrote The Inner Game of Golf and The Inner Game of Work. All of his books are extremely readable and useful. His definition of coaching embraces the empowering concept of teaching people to learn, rather than just simply teaching them and describes the Coaching process as follows:
“In every human endeavor there are two arenas of engagement: the outer and the inner. The outer game is played on an external arena to overcome external obstacles to reach an external goal. The inner game takes place within the mind of the player and is played against such obstacles as fear, self-doubt, lapses in focus, and limiting concepts or assumptions. The inner game is played to overcome the self-imposed obstacles that prevent an individual or team from accessing their full potential.”
What is our approach?
We believe that you take your whole self to work. As such we do not simply call ourselves "Performance Coaches", focusing only on issues that affect work performance. We take a much broader or systemic view. We take into account that the factors that may be affecting someone's performance at work could be at many levels such as; the environment, the Coachee’s behaviour or that of others, their knowledge and skills, beliefs and values or even their concept of their own identity.
Although coaching principally involves advanced listening and questioning skills on behalf of the Coach, we also draw on a range of powerful and potent techniques, including Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Neuroscience.
We offer two different ways to assist people in their endeavour to achieve personal transformations:
We conduct personal and Executive coaching face-to-face or remotely which is designed to help people on an incremental and regular basis
Breakthrough Sessions, which are intensive face-to-face coaching sessions designed to support people with more in-depth solutions. Normally these sessions are once-off and of about 6-8 hour’s duration
At the outset, our primary focus is to establish a positive relationship between coach and client and create psychological safety. We will work with you to clearly understand the goals and outcomes you want to achieve and how we will evaluate them. Together we define and agree the boundaries for our coaching relationship.
What is our philosophy?
We have an unshakeable belief in the potential of the individual and their capability to determine the solution for themselves. This is a generative, rather than remedial, approach to coaching. It is not only empowering, it is quicker and more effective. It also means that the individual will be more committed to the solution, rather than one that is suggested or imposed by someone.
Our vision is that by 2030 we will have positively influenced 20 million people in the world, either directly or indirectly. We aim to do this by training people to be world-class coaches and mentors that are sought after for their services throughout the world as they really make a difference to their clients.
How do we go about it?
At JS-International we conduct personal, executive level coaching to assist people in their endeavour to achieve personal transformations. The coaching relationship starts with an initial contact, called a chemistry session. If both the client and the coach consider the contact successful the relationship is further developed by a contracting session to clarify the goals of the coaching, then a discovery session, followed by several sessions to conduct the coaching and then a final review. The time frame of the coaching typically is over 6 months and involves a commitment of approximately 12 – 14 hours.
Examples of what other people have achieved as a result of coaching are:
Enhanced performance at work
Less stress in their life
Peace and balance
Enhanced personal relationships
Letting go of unresolved issues from the past
Gaining courage to start a new career
Enhanced sport's performance
Better family life
More rounded perspective on life
Realignment with the organisation and its goals
Enhanced capability to conduct challenging and leading edge work
Launching a new business
We bring our clients a unique combination of real life business and behavioural knowledge and expertise; our coaches are highly skilled at working with both the individual’s needs and the reality of the organisation.
