Kapow Coaching offers intuitive, supportive and positive coaching for individuals and teams for discovery and action with our team of professional, qualified Co-Active Coaches.

Coaching

Whether you call it business, executive, leadership or simply coaching - as a professional qualified CCPC and NLP coach I help to facilitate changes in behaviour, attitude and thinking for groups and individuals.  With my team of Co-Active professional coaches, we believe that positive transformation can come from reflective practices as well as pro-active action.  Our coaching takes place in-doors, out-doors and virtually.

As a coach I purposely only take on a limited number of clients each year, so to find out if I have space or to just 'try me out', ask for a FREE sample coaching session today.

"For clients, supervision is recognized as an effective means of quality control. In fact, this recognition has become so widespread that "coaching supervision is regarded as essential practice in Europe" (Lawrence and Whyte, 2014), and it is fast becoming a recommended component of coaching standards around the world."  Kerryn Griffiths Global ReciproCoach Coordinator

Clare Cockburn, The Style Theatre

"For myself the experience of having a coaching session in the outdoors was very positive. Being outside allows you the space to breath and talk freely on any subject. Personally being active also helps clear my mind and allows me to get to the root of issues or come up with better solutions. It felt very natural having a discussion outside and that made it much easier to take onboard any advice or pointers from you." Tom, Edinburgh

(Walking coaching)

"An interesting approach to working through issues - managable process in a fixed amount of time.  Does not take a huge amount of materials or technical input"
Edinburgh client

(Coaching Circles)

"Kate thank you, you are inspiring to work with...you supported me with backbone and heart. I felt safe yet challenged, supported yet pushed, listened to and heard...truly heard, you were able to pick up on my little nuances....the things I glossed over but needed coached on, the real stuff that was holding me back from achieving my goals and generally creating confusion and unease for me....when our coaching came to an end I was sad but excited....you helped me more than you know....what is effortless for you is priceless for me, thanks again". Lisa, Glasgow

(Inspirational)

According to the ICF, 86 percent of organizations saw a return on their coaching investment, and 96 percent of those who have been coached said they would repeat the process again.

Coaching Programmes

Senior Managers / Director and Executive Coaching

Senior Managers / Director and Executive Coaching

Supporting your Diverging Leaders within your business is less about managing their performance or meeting strategic objectives, but more about how they show up as a leader and a positive role model.  Typically, Senior Managers and Directors are looking for:

  • personal time to reflect with an impartial sounding board
  • space to explore their leadership impact
  • greater understanding of personal values, drivers and barriers
  • time to work on their legacy within the business
  • succession planning
  • strategies for managing stress and building up resilience

Coaching for Senior Managers and Leaders typically last 90 minutes and are done face to face every month.  We will agree what would work best for you and can be flexible around your needs.

Coaching is office based or walking coaching.  Walking has a powerful effect on your physical, mental and emotional wellbeing as you re-energise your body and mind by being outside in fresh air, away from work and life distractions, and step-by-step signalling your unconscious mind that you are moving forward.

Included in the process for Senior Managers / Directors is a Leadership Emotional Intelligence profile (EQ-i) which will form the starting point of our working together.   Contact us today to discuss which one our professional coaching team would be best for you.

Junior / Mid Managers Coaching

Junior / Mid Managers Coaching

Emerging Leaders within an organisation often benefit from the support of a Leadership Coach by providing them with an external solution for internal challenges. 

Suited for Junior or Mid Managers who are:

  • at a decision-making crossroad
  • looking for re-motivation or re-focus on their goals
  • seeking to push themselves towards more aspirational goals and challenges
  • needing reflective time on how to manage difficult people or difficult situations
  • wanting to explore their management capabilities by going from ‘good to great’ manager
  • seeking to understand who their Inner Leader is

Coaching for Junior and Mid Managers can be between an hour and 90 minutes and typically takes place every month.  The actually time and frequency is agreed with each person, based on their needs.

Coaching is done face to face as well as via telephone and Zoom to provide a timely support solution when most people are working against the clock.  The coaching will also include the three-way contracting and review.  Depending on the person or situation, we may offer Walking Coaching; a solution focused technique taking you out of the office, away from the problem and into and the world of possibilities inspired by the world around you.

Team Coaching

Team Coaching

A s budgets for organisations are shrinking, there is becoming a move towards making coaching ‘team-centric’ to help teams become more agile, effective and engaged.  Team coaching helps to facilitate a process that enables a team of people to experience collective learning together through honest discussions, reflections and shared personal and group insights.

Pre-training for the group helps to upskill teams on listening and questioning skills as well as to collectively define their common learning.  This can be anything from half a day to 2 days, depending on the group.  Unlike Coaching Circles or Action Learning Sets, the function of Team Coaching is to focus on the group’s performance and insightful learning in order to develop their skill and behaviours for the betterment of the organisation. Learning vs achieving goals gets to the heart of the team and helps develop lasting behaviours, beliefs and attitudes.

For best impact, sessions typically between 90 minutes and 2 hours.  Team Coaching is facilitated by two coaches, providing maximum group support for the group.  The sessions may include 4 D Modelling, team diagnostics as well as group coaching.

Get in touch with you us to find out more or call today on 07906 704 769.

Third Eye Coaching

Third Eye Coaching

Putting a coaching lens on your management and leadership skills using the 3 I’s of Intention, Impact and Intuition through work-place observation, perspective feedback and coaching.

Leading teams and individuals can often be an isolating experience where many people managers are rarely given specific or insightful feedback in the moment, on how they can enhance their communication skills, delegation techniques or interpersonal skills to have a more positive and lasting impact

 
What is it?

Third Eye Coaching concentrates on what you are communicating (intention), how it is received (impact) and the global insight of what could be improved within the working relationship of your team / department (intuition). This process enables you to focus on your leadership, management and effective communication skills amongst your peers and teams, and highlights methods for improvement.

How does it work?

Typical Third Eye Coaching offers a mixture of work-place observations, perspective feedback and one to one coaching. Contracting and confidentiality play an important role in this process and time will be spent informing all those involved of expectations and the role they play in supporting the leadership development of the coachee.  The objective of Third Eye Coaching is to improve your leadership capabilities by understanding your intention, impact and intuition.

Contact Kate to discuss how we can help.

Personal / Life Coaching

Personal / Life Coaching (Telephone or Zoom)

Personal development is something that we believe everyone should have access to and we love working with individuals who are self-motivated and driven by a desire to be the ‘best version of themselves’.  Some clients come to us with a clear idea of wanting to explore career changes, work-life balance concerns or how to juggle parenting with working.  However, many don’t know what needs to change or what specifically they want to work on – only that something has to change and they want to feel like ‘me again’.

Whether you know or don’t know what to explore we offer Personal / Life Coaching as one hour sessions, taking place over Zoom or telephone with email support available in between sessions.

By signing up for virtual Personal / Life Coaching you will be committing to dedicated time to explore and achieve your objectives of change, and to get a deeper self-awareness of your values, your motivation and internal processes that support lasting change for you.
