What is Coaching?
“Coaching is a particularly powerful tool in the modern workplace – one that has proven to be a highly effective way of developing individual and organisational performance by unlocking capability. At its best, this key management tool can deliver considerable benefits, helping managers get the most from their teams, boosting employee engagement and developing high performing workplaces” ILM (2011)
What is mentoring?
“The purpose of mentoring is to support and encourage people to manage their own learning in order that they may maximise their potential, develop their skills, improve their performance and become the person they want to be”.
Why Coaching & Mentoring?
“Coaching & mentoring are learning relationships which help people to take charge of their own development, to release their potential and to achieve results which they value”
Connor & Pokora (2007)

The recent coaching survey undertaken by Institute of Leadership and Management (2011) suggests that:
• 95% of organisations surveyed believed coaching as a development tool benefited the organisation.
• Coaching enabled improvements in communication and inter-personal skills, leadership and management development
• Coaching supported conflict resolution and personal confidence, attitudes and motivation
