Coaching

Unlock knowledge, capability and confidence to build performance and enhance culture

All our coaching sessions can be conducted either face-to-face or remotely via phone or Skype.

Coaching is a powerful, collaborative process that empowers you to create positive change in your life. At Flourish, we partner with you to help you to get crystal clear on your purpose (both personally and professionally), gain greater clarity around your goals, identify what's holding you back and implement strategies to enable you to unlock the potential that you've been unable to access on your own.

An important part of our coaching approach that results in lasting outcomes for our clients is the support we provide around how to effectively manage thoughts and emotions that can sabotage you when you are trying to create new ways of being in order to bring about the outcomes you are seeking.

Often in coaching, a lot of effort is put into trying to rid people of unwanted thoughts and emotions. However, as a large, ever-growing body of research is demonstrating, there is a more powerful way to create change.

Rather than relying solely on eliminating unwanted thoughts and emotions, we support you with learning the skills to change your relationship to them. In doing so, the hold they have on you is released and energy is freed up so that the brain can be rewired with more constructive thoughts and beliefs and healthier emotional patterns can be established. This leads to lasting positive behavioural change and powerful outcomes for our clients.

Our coaches combine their extensive corporate experience with a thorough, in-depth pre-coaching analysis. Coaching expertise is underpinned by a breadth of modalities targeted at bringing unconscious thoughts, feeling and behaviours to the surface. This helps you to step outside your comfort zone and form new ways of being that enable you to experience the life and outcomes that bring both success and fulfilment.

At Flourish Consulting, we offer a range of coaching packages that consist of Executive Coaching, Workplace Coaching, Life Coaching and Mindfulness Coaching.

Executive Coaching

 

At any organisation, inspiration and outcomes must be driven from the top down. Current global organisational demands require executives to be able to deliver outcomes in the face of ever-increasing complexity and change. Engaging one of our executive coaches can provide leaders with the support and clarity they require to face organisational challenges head-on whilst demonstrating the kind of leadership that produces extraordinary results.

 

At Flourish Consulting, we undertake a robust process that begins before the first coaching session takes place. We gain an in-depth understanding of the dynamics at play through a detailed analysis process that assesses the requirements of the individual, their specific challenges (both intrinsic and extrinsic) and how this links to the challenges and demands of their broader work environment. Once the coaching process begins, we cultivate a strong coaching partnership based on trust and mutual respect whilst ensuring that we hold individuals to account in a supportive and empowering way. This is how real and lasting outcomes are achieved.

Some of the ways that Executive Coaching makes a difference for the clients we work with include:

 

  • Creating the space for confidential, productive and solution-focused self-reflection

  • Challenging current paradigms to generate thinking and problem-solving that makes way for new possibilities and superior thought-leadership

  • Ensuring that beliefs, values and behaviours are aligned to the organisation’s vision, values and objectives

  • Increasing self-awareness and identifying behavioural change required for effective leadership and role-modelling

  • Identifying options for contributing to improved organisational culture

  • Breaking through limiting mindsets and behaviours that may be impinging on their ability to deliver effectively in their role

 

Workplace Coaching

 

In order to create a high-performing team, there needs to be true collaboration, where everyone is working towards a shared vision and has clarity and is committed to what is required of them individually. Inevitably, there will be differing levels of skill, commitment and potential amongst team members. Sometimes, an individual may possess potential but needs support with tapping into it so that team cohesion and performance can be at its optimum. Coaching is a powerful intervention to assist individuals with identifying and developing their own personal 'why' as well as cultivating the mindset, behaviours and skills required to deliver outstanding results.

Engaging one of our coaches can assist individuals with:

  • Enhancing relationships at work

  • Performance improvement

  • Greater enjoyment and job satisfaction 

  • Increased confidence and empowerment

  • Reduced stress levels and enhanced resilience

  • Higher social and emotional intelligence

  • More effective communication and conflict resolution skills

Some of the reasons that our organisational coaching clients value working with us include:

  • A happier and more resilient workforce

  • Increased productivity and performance

  • Unlocking the capacity for individuals to realise their potential and contribute to organisational success

  • A strong and positive culture where employees feel valued, empowered and engaged

  • A culture that is more adaptive and open to organisational change

  • An organisation that is built on openness, authenticity and effective communication

  • Improved customer service and satisfaction

Life Coaching

 

Life coaching is a powerful process designed to help you create a life that you love. The focus for coaching can include improving your wellbeing, addressing relationships, building your confidence, dealing with financial issues, stress management through to identifying your life purpose.

 

Together, we will create a tailored coaching program for you that will enhance your self-awareness and assist you with identifying what will bring you lasting fulfilment. We will formulate a plan that consists of practical steps that will enable you to gain clarity, simplify your life, tap into inspiration and put a structure in place that will support you with achieving personal breakthroughs so you can come to have the experience of your life that you are truly seeking.

 

Some of the benefits you can gain from life coaching include:

  • Greater clarity around who you are, what brings meaning to you and what your purpose is

  • A clearer vision of your life goals and a greater ability to achieve them

  • Enhanced wellbeing

  • Improved self-esteem and confidence

  • Enhanced resilience and a reduction in stress levels

  • Making better decisions

  • Increased sense of joy and happiness

  • Better relationships

  • Improved finances

  • Releasing unhelpful mental, emotional or behavioural patterns

Mindfulness Coaching

 

 

Mindfulness is a way of engaging with your life with a moment-by-moment awareness of your thoughts, feelings, physical sensations as well as your surrounding environment. What this establishes is the ability to be aware of and observe what you are experiencing in the present moment, rather than getting caught up in your mind about issues from the past or worries about the future.

 

Central to mindfulness is the ability to observe what is happening without judgement or without wishing to change anything.

 

Although mindfulness as a practice is known to have evolved from numerous sacred traditions (such a Buddhism and Sufism), it was popularised in the late 70’s by Jon Kabat-Zinn from the University of Massachusetts where he launched a Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction program at the university’s medical school. Since then, its mental, emotional and physical benefits have been demonstrated through thousands of studies and due to its efficacy, mindfulness is growing exponentially as a practice adopted by many corporate organisations across the world today.

 

Mindfulness is powerful in its ability to help you train yourself to focus in a way that calms your mind and unhooks you from challenging thoughts, emotions and behaviours that undermine your life satisfaction and sense of wellbeing. By learning to be present to and detached from what you are experiencing in any given moment, you will develop the ability to choose how you wish to respond to life rather than being reactive and feeling at the mercy of unhelpful patterns of thoughts and behaviours.

 

Why mindfulness coaching is helpful:

 

Whilst mindfulness is easy to understand as a concept and sounds simple to apply, it can actually be very difficult to practice due to the fact that people spend most of their lives on autopilot, focusing on anything but the present moment.

 

Fostering mindfulness is like building a muscle and is established with regular, daily practice. For most people, establishing this kind of practice can be challenging and this is where a coach can come in to create momentum, provide accountability, offer support with challenges and answer questions as they arise.

Some of the proven benefits of mindfulness include:

  • Improved cognitive function (can process information more quickly)

  • Better decision-making abilities

  • Increased mental focus

  • Reduction in anxiety and depression

  • Better emotional regulation

  • Improved health (including lower blood pressure, weight loss, pain reduction)

  • Enhanced mood

  • Increased empathy and compassion

  • Improved resilience and equanimity

  • Better relationships, including an increased sense of connection
