I am a professional Transformational Coach, working with my clients to bring clarity and meaningful progress.
With a decade’s experience agency-side I am familiar with the many pressures, uncertainties and highs & lows that a career in marketing and advertising brings to an individual.
I also understand that Agencies are faced with a multitude of challenges. More than just winning and retaining business they are fighting to stay relevant, maintain the right culture, retain talent, foster potential, upskill and keep pace with rapid change.
For an agency to perform at its best I believe it is vital that everyone is clear on their role, remains motivated, empowered, and are communicating effectively.
For an individual coaching provides clarity, removes blockers, builds confidence, increases self awareness, performance and so much more.
For an agency who is only as good as the sum of its parts coaching is proven to increase engagement, efficiency and productivity. It demonstrates commitment to employees, nurtures talent and leadership and has a proven positive impact on the bottom line.
WHAT IS COACHING?
Put simply, coaching is a relationship between two parties.
Crucially though it is one built on a solid foundation of trust. It is a non-directive and objective partnership where it is understood that the client is complete and capable.
As your coach I do not provide you with my answers to your challenge but rather facilitate a powerful conversation in a confidential setting such that you are able to seek out the best course of action and best possible outcome for you.
The benefits of coaching
To an individual
A positive coaching partnership can enable you to develop in multiple and varied ways and ultimately enable you to achieve your desired outcome. Some of the most frequently cited benefits are:
Eliminating negative or limiting beliefs
To an agency
Particularly useful when employees have recently been or are soon to be promoted, returned from leave, taken on a new role, responsibility or are facing particularly challenging milestones.
Put simply and from the point of view of the employer, coaching:
Increases performance and efficiency
Identifies key strengths
Positively impacts the bottom line
What to expect
As a Transformational Coach I have trained to dig below the surface of your challenges where needed, exploring what’s underneath and influencing a particular issue you're experiencing.
Over the course of our programme together I’ll work with you to sharpen your focus on your desired outcome creating order and clarity for you. I’ll tackle any limiting beliefs you might be presenting, challenge patterns of behaviour and replace them with motivating, positive action that sees you overcome stagnation to achieve your desired outcome.
"Each session had a relaxed and informal atmosphere, allowing me to feel comfortable to talk about things I would rarely discuss. Within this environment Alex gently helped me to shine a light on things I perhaps otherwise wouldn't have addressed. This often allowed me to join dots and understand my behaviours and the why!"
Head of Production
I offer packages of 1:1 coaching sessions that provide flexibility and affordability for individuals or agencies. I will work with you to determine the most effective frequency for our time together. Your first consultation session is absolutely free with no obligation to book further sessions.
You have a good idea of your goal but are struggling to navigate the best way forward. We’ll work together over 6 sessions to sharpen your objectives, establish what is motivating you, remove your blockers and set about making meaningful change.
You’re facing a challenge and the best course of action and outcome isn’t clear to you. We’ll work together over 10 sessions to focus your sights on what you’re really looking for. We’ll uncover what is behind your goal whilst acknowledging what might get in the way before setting the best path that sees you making the transformational change you’re looking for.
You might be looking for a refresher session following a previous package of sessions. Perhaps you’re in need of some rapid-fire time together ahead of a looming milestone. We'll work together to determine a bespoke programme for you.
Core & Extended packages start with a discovery and contracting meeting between sponsor (agency), coachee and coach where we establish boundaries and confidentiality. They can also include a check-in between all parties, led by the coachee as well as a wrap-up session.
Working together on a 1:1 basis towards a known goal over the course of 6 sessions. We'll interrogate what is motivating the change and set about overcoming challenges to meet those objectives.
Working together on a 1:1 basis towards more complex challenges or known goals that benefit from a course of 10 sessions.
Multiple 1:1 Programmes:
Where multiple employees will benefit from 1:1 coaching a bespoke package offers you savings.
Often best where large numbers would benefit from 1:1 coaching as well as helping to instill a coaching mindset in an agency.
Individuals pre-book their 50minute session with up to 5 sessions available per day.
Drop-in days take place on a monthly basis and can be booked in 6-month or annual packages.
