Coaching

Natural Talents Coaching Programs always lead to significant and sustainable behavioral change.  We work with you in total confidence as your trusted business advisor and can assist you and your leaders in addressing issues such as improving communication and negotiation skills, inadequate delegation and empowerment, inefficient planning and organizing, high/low assertiveness levels, tough decision making, implementing and managing change, stress and lifestyle management, poor working relationships. 

Natural Talents Coaching always leads to improved leadership and management capability, measurably increased performance and a positive impact on the business. As a result of our Coaching Programs, 94% of senior managers in our client organizations have been promoted.

At Natural Talent Bristol and South Wales, our Coaching focuses on immediate work-related tasks as well as personal development and therefore leads to improved business results. Coaching works exceptionally well with high potentials or when you have identified development needs and blind spots and you are keen to improve performance, learn new skills and subsequently have the possibility to attain a promotion. In order to ensure that you do not ‘revert to type’ under pressure and return to old behaviors from before the Coaching, you will be encouraged to obtain ongoing constructive feedback from a work ‘buddy’, as well as enlisting the support of your Line Manager to keep monitoring the actions from the SMART Coaching Action Plan.

Coaching is proven to improve employee engagement and aid retention and can work at all levels within an organization. It helps you to identify your unique strengths and key opportunities for development and link them to your personal and career aspirations. Working with a Coach can encourage you to establish long-term development goals and help you create a SMART Coaching Action Plan for attaining them.

Coaching helps build commitment as Coaching clients feel that the company is investing time and money in them and consequently, they tend to improve discretionary effort and performance, which all impact positively on the bottom line. Through Coaching interventions interpersonal disputes can be resolved, levels of personal responsibility can be enhanced, and as result, recruitment and retention-costs can be cut significantly, leading to increased profits.

Coaching allows you to focus on your individual development plans, address key challenges, learn to solve problems, reflect on current experience, clarify career direction, increase self-awareness and emotional intelligence, and enhance personal impact. ROI from Coaching interventions tends to be very high, compared to the significant financial loss associated with high attrition rates, the costs of recruitment, onboarding and training, added to the decrease in productivity whilst new hires get up to speed.
