Coaching & Executive Coaching - the

ACTIVE Coaching® system

Many people will have the desire to progress, to improve their thinking, their approach to situations – or, it may be others who see this and, with a little bit of extra help and guidance, a certain individual has the potential to perform far better than they already are.  Given the correct support they are then able to develop and attain greater knowledge and skills, improve their overall well-being, amongst many other benefits.

These are some of the classic cases where effective coaching can be hugely beneficial, and where coaching really comes to the fore.

Why is Coaching different?


There are many misconceptions around coaching.  For example: that the coach is there to solve the problem for the individual.  This is not true.


A true coach helps an individual unlock their hidden skills, knowledge and experience in order to solve the problem themself, and to gain from this.

Correctly applied coaching is totally different to the classic ‘on the job training’ methodology, where a ‘directive’ structure of: ‘I know how; I tell you; You carry it out’, is applied.


Coaching applies a ‘non-directive’ methodology of: ‘You know how; You tell me, You decide.’ 


Through active dialogue, the coach is there to help, advise, support and un-lock potential that may be dormant, so allowing the individual freedom to think things through more clearly.
