What is Coaching & Mentoring ?
“ Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn ”
ILM regard coaching as “a particularly powerful tool in the modern workplace, helping managers get the most from their teams, boosting employee engagement and developing high performing workplaces”.
In our words, coaching enables coachee’s to become ‘unstuck’ from their traditional mode of thinking and to consider new perspectives.
