Coaching and Mentoring
The power of coaching and mentoring as a learning and development tool has been increasingly recognised in the workplace.
Managers are frequently asked to provide a coaching leadership style or to act as mentors, but often lack the specific knowledge and skills required. It is increasingly apparent that HR and L&D professionals need this credible skillset to support the needs of the people in their organisations.
A people-centred approach
Coaching is effectively a conversation between two people and is focused on unlocking a person’s potential to maximise their own performance.
Using effective listening and questioning skills, a coach helps explore options to enhance performance or to find their own solutions to issues they may be experiencing in professional life.
As well as enhancing an individual’s potential, it accelerates progress by providing greater focus and awareness of choice.
At CAKE we provide bespoke coaching programmes tailored to your organisation, enabling you to empower your teams and guide them. Our expert coaches work with individuals at all stages of their career and are specialists in executive coaching to help business leaders succeed.
Open programmes are available for anyone who wishes to join and benefit through group learning and our CMI and ILM accredited courses cover a range of people development practices. We also host events to promote best practice and the benefits of coaching including The Coaching Conversation.
Coaching to suit your business
CAKE creates tailored coaching programmes designed to fit your business perfectly. Many ‘off the shelf’ programmes can provide a few useful generic tips to improve members of your team, but the CAKE approach delves deeper - looking into your specific needs.
