Meet the coaches
Our team are unquestionably the biggest source of our competitive advantage
We select our coaches carefully to make sure that they are able to add that kind of value and deliver true Situational Coach-Mentoring. Whilst there is no single type of OCM coach, we make sure that all our coaches have the following key areas of competence:
Coaching experience: Qualifications at Senior Practitioner level (usually) and experience in a diverse range of coaching situations. Strong evidence of investment in Continuous Professional Development and personal supervision. Strong commitment to ethical practice and safe practice and deep awareness of own strengths and limitations as a coach.
Business acumen: experience in business leadership at a senior level, as well as fluency with company financials and experience of setting company strategy. Experience of leading through change and transformation
Interpersonal insight: a good level of empathy and understanding of others, including the ability to understand and relate to a wide range of different personality types. Insight into organisational dynamics and politics, influencing and stakeholder management.
In addition we look for a clear USP (Unique Selling Point) in our coaches – a particular ‘sweet spot’ in their coaching practice which is the area in which they add the most value.
