Turning circles. Time and again, when facing problems and challenges, both professionally as well as privately, this is what happens. We stubbornly get stuck and do it ever so convincingly. Again and again. Blind to other options, fearful for the unknown, ardently clinging to our own self-beliefs, rusted habits and convictions. Desperately holding to what we think to know and master best, looking for flawed security. We often put the responsibility onto others, minimalizing our own impact. If we continue doing things as we have been doing them, we will always be getting what we’ve always got. Doing something else creates resistance, doesn’t it?
This process starts from the belief in the power of everyone, mutual trust, equality, daring to take one’s own responsibility and confrontation. Ultimately, the result is a coachee-drafted, realistic action plan.
Easy? No, probably not. Changing, doing things differently, demands effort to everyone, lots of energy and focus. But it is well worth the investment in yourself. The feeling to have regained energy, “to hit the road again” is priceless.
Anyone in the organization may have a need for a coach to jointly explore where things get stuck, do not produce the results one is hoping for. Everyone deserves a chance to move forward. Ultimately, every journey will have a different, very personal, focus. Regardless of one’s position in the organization.Improvement’s coaches offer perfect, tailor-made, individual coaching processes.
This is an individual process for one coachee whereby focus is on those targets coachee and client put forward. This process is about the coachee’s functioning effectively in a one-on-one situation or in a group or organization.
This is about the functioning of a group of individuals, a management team, (project) team, division or department. How to deal effectively with one other, the focus being enhancing the collaboration, highlighting communication patterns. Each team has its own dynamics, system and culture, which calls for an individualized approach facilitated by a seasoned, external team coach.
The International Coach Federation (ICF) has elaborated a Code of Ethics. Our Improvement coaches engage themselves to adhere to this code.
This Code of Ethics can be found at the ICF website: ICF Code of Ethics
