Business Coaching & Executive coaching

When planning on how to deliver your vision for a business or planning how to make the most of your company’s most prized asset, your people. Or, whether you want to take control of your destiny as a business professional through personal development, taking the time to step back and consider your next move, dispassionately and strategically cannot be underestimated.

Professional business & executive coaching support can ease the weight of responsibility for such important decisions, providing great experience and objectivity to help determine the roadmap to achieving your goals

Lupton Fawcett’s coaches provide the knowledge, approach, and experience to ensure individuals or groups benefit from a gained clarity on how to achieve business and career objectives and life goals.

What is Coaching?

Many organisations pay for talent but fail to use it 100%. Coaching is a way of developing a person’s skill and knowledge so that their job performance improves. A coachee can self-assess their performance in different areas so that blockages to success are removed. Coaching helps drive business change, transformational change and the achievement of business and personal objectives.

Coaching differs from other ways of improving performance. Using structured regular meetings the coachee’s awareness is raised allowing them to have a clear way forward and adapt to change.

Unlike training, coaching is personalised to the coachee and there’s no need to wait for the right training course to become available.
