Why Would YOU Need Coaching?
A lot of people hire coaches. Tiger Woods has a swing coach. Andy Murray has a performance coach. The winners of the Superbowl or the European Cup also have coaches. Top actors. Top musicians. Top performers in any field use the impartial expertise of another party to help them progress a difficult transition, fill knowledge gaps or provide a different perspective.
Here are some reasons YOU should use our coaching services:
I am someone you can keep in confidence. I am not your line manager or your Board. I am not apprising your performance. I am not deciding if you should get a promotion or not. I am someone who will keep all our discussion absolutely confidential. By telling me how things are, you will not damage your career prospects as can happen if your line manager is your coach / mentor. Everything is between us. No one else.
I can provide an impartial sounding board for your ideas.
I can help keep you on track by providing some accountability.
I can help you to keep things in perspective and provide the ‘critical friend’ perspective we all need sometimes.
I can keep you moving from ‘the naysayer’ to the ‘I can and will’ person who moves ahead in their career and life.
I can help you to address the tough questions. The ones you should be asking. The ones you may run from.
I provide a different perspective, an independent view, a unique approach.
I have a lot of experience, hard won through many battles which you can draw on and benefit from.
I have a wide range of contacts and people I know very well. I can connect you to people who may help you on specific projects or with a particular issue. That way you bring solutions and people to the table and that is of immense value to your organisation and your reputation.
I have a wealth of technical knowledge which I am happy to share and divulge.
Who Is Coaching For?
This is primarily aimed at:
Renewable energy development managers.
Sustainability executives and directors.
Business owners in, or seeking to get into, the renewable energy and environment sector.
Renewable energy and environment consultants.
How Does It Work?
For a one-off annual fee, you will receive a personal one-to-one coaching session by telephone every month for one hour, but you will be able to contact your coach at anytime should the occasion arise, subject only to availability.
This is an extremely cost-effective way of benefiting from our skills and experience without having to fashion a project to justify it. The constant reinforcement of ideas and reflection on experience is much more effective at boosting performance than attending a simple training course.
Our style is to help you to identify opportunities to improve performance as well as to help you to overcome adversity. We help you to find the solution yourself rather than tell you what to do. This builds a much higher level of confidence and gives you much more of a long-term gain.
The coaching is primarily delivered by Stuart McAleese who has more than 15 years in the renewable energy and environment sector across a range of businesses, technologies and geography’s.
How Much Does It Cost?
Our fees are scaled against the size of the organisation as follows:
Self-employed / micro-business (<10 employees) – £2,400 p.a.
Small / medium sized businesses (<150 employees) – £5,600 p.a.
Large corporates (>150 employees) – £9,600 p.a.
