Coaching is about getting the very best out of someone and enabling them to make decisions that will improve their life. Albeit new for some organisations and individuals, coaching has been around for several years and is now a recognised way of increasing the effectiveness of the individual or team. Coaching doesn't claim to have all the answers, yet it is an extremely powerful development tool.
"Coaching" is a powerful and enabling tool for development and performance. It is one of the many key arrows in the learning and talent development quiver and is well regarded by many people in organisations at all levels. Coaching helps to raise performance and align people and their goals to the organisation, cements learning and skills, and is a powerful agent for culture change and agility. And it is a 'must have' for organisations and be part of normal management practice.
A LQ Coach's role is to work on a one to one basis to assist the individual to find their own solution. It is all about helping them to find the answers that they have within themselves.
Typically, a coaching session will last for a couple of hours and depending on the issues that are being considered, there may be a number of sessions scheduled over a period of time.

Team coaching is also extremely effective and works on the same basis as above except with small teams.
