Coaching for corporate and Business success.

“People change what they do less because they are given analysis that shifts their thinking than because they are shown a truth that influences their feelings” 

Over the past decade, executive coaching has experienced incredible growth and is recognized to be a key factor in developing high performance for individuals and teams within the company. The fast growth of coaching has been linked to the increasing complexity and fast pace of change executives have to deal with in today's work environment.

If you are an executive, leader or a business owner and struggling with a specific goal, or project, team member or employee, coaching will help fast track you towards that goal.

Ask the questions; How do I think differently, think big? Am I truly a role model for my staff?  What's my legacy?  How do I want to be remembered?  Raise the bar on your own performance to positively influence those around you.

Organisational Development

Coaching offers a convenient, relatively cost-effective way to support behavioural changes or complex decision-making processes that have the potential to create tremendous value for organizations, as well as the individuals involved

Intrinsic motivation versus extrinsic motivation (rewards destroy creativity). If you want compliance give carrot sticks.  If you want engagement, self direction works better than carrot sticks.  Autonomy - Mastery - Purpose

Benefits for HR Organisations

Your employees can discuss with the coach the "undiscussables" 

Utilities expertise in the community, offers new/fresh perspectives and therefore different approaches
Sometimes HR doesn’t have the skills resources and time 

Generic initiatives don’t often cater for “individual blockages”, coaching can provide
They will appreciate the company taking an active interest in their health and well-being.

When employees are healthy, fit and emotionally/mentally strong they will perform better in the work place. 

Lightening Lab  is a pressure cooker environment where they support business start-ups here in Wellington. The aim of the programme is to get the companies investment ready.  2016 year is specifically for female founders.  As a life/wellness/business coach I was coaching the Director of Little Yellow Bird: Empowers employees and enhances corporate social responsibility through their range of ethically manufactured uniforms.  It was exciting to be part of an innovative start up with growing success.

This is a great opportunity to give back (if and where I can) to the small business community.  As an owner of Relocations International (30 plus years), I have a great interest in promoting business here in Wellington (something that is much needed in the advent of the loss of companies and Head offices to Auckland).

Julia brought home to us the importance of simplifying our lives and saying ‘no’ to things that present as clutter in a negative, energy-draining way.  It was the first time that staff and partners heard each others views and it was done in a safe environment that enabled people to contribute to the discussion when and how they saw appropriate.

Julia has been my personal & business coach for the past few years and I couldn’t speak highly enough of how she has helped me over this time. Her style is professional, relaxed, and challenging to ensure that I take the right steps in maximising my personal development and business opportunities. 

Julia pushed me to find a balance between my business and personal life and I am convinced there will be long lasting benefits as she equipped me with the skills to be more self-aware and courageous in any situation.

I now have the tools and the positive attitude to carry on with the changes I have put in place.

 I’m disappointed that I missed out as everyone has been really positive about the session and found it really helpful.  It will definitely be worthwhile having a follow up session in the New Year.
