Under pressure? Agenda too huge? Need help to deliver change?

Working in local government today, you need to deliver transformation and savings whilst preserving – and often improving – service standards.

Coaching helps you to identify pressure points and plug gaps, develop competencies to succeed, and build resilience to bounce back from adversity. We provide the opportunity to explore and reflect on strategies to deal with stress and complex issues, in confidence, with an impartial third party.

Our coaches have experience delivering extensive change programmes which makes us particularly suited to support you to lead, enable, and motivate your people in new ways, stimulate new behaviour and get people to accept new roles and ways of working, and behave in the way you want others to behave.

We enable you to drive your own change. We align your needs with the expertise of one of our coaches, and arrange a meeting or telephone conversation with the selected coach to ensure a good fit and design the right approach to meet your needs.

'I feel much clearer about my work goals – I am able to identify areas of improvement and determine solid plans of action to work on them. I feel that I’ve addressed some quite established – and not very positive – working patterns I’ve developed over the years.'
