“This is needed now more than ever…”

(Client Feedback, March 2020)

Why now more than ever?

The quote above came from a client towards the end of a coaching call just a few days after her very interactive workplace had made the decision (for only the second time in its multi-decade history) to close its doors and institute remote working in the face of COVID-19. This client leads a high performing team at a top-rated organisation and suddenly found herself committed to delivering the same value to anxious stakeholders with reduced resources from her home.

Our coaching call had been booked as part of an organisational programme for middle leaders before COVID-19 reared its ugly head but she recognised the added value coaching was bringing to her at a time of such unexpected and dramatic change at work.

It was a privilege to serve her and other leaders in her organisation that day as it has been to serve clients more widely in the face of the unprecedentedly rapid change which COVID-19 has brought.

Coaching at the Right Time

Here are some of the questions clients are asking at the moment. “How do I lead my team remotely?” “How do I plan for the future when it is so uncertain?” “How do I calm anxious stakeholders?” “How do I have difficult conversations with members of my team/ clients/ suppliers?” “How do I keep a sense of perspective in all of this?” “How do I think more than one day ahead?” “Will my job/ business survive?” The coaching that I offer isn’t about trite advice or simplistic answers. It’s about agency. It’s about enabling you to find a way forward which you generate and which you can commit to. It’s about cutting through the confusion of COVID-19 and other challenges to bring you to a clarity about your options and more effective actions as a result.

RWilliamsCoaching has always been about helping individuals and organisations make the right change at work. The world is always changing and right now, as whole industries grind to a halt seemingly overnight and every individual and business is having to rethink what they do and how they do it, it feels like more of a privilege and a necessity than ever to offer clients the opportunity to do their best work in a changing world.

Coaching in the Right Place

All of our coaching services, from one-to-one coaching to organisational and team workshops and programmes have always been accessible remotely providing every client with the opportunity to access the coaching support they need outside the office. Technology – from simple mobile phones to group calls and webinars – allows us to make the most of the benefits which coaching brings – to clarify thinking, understand options and use capabilities to move forward through change.

If you feel you or your organisation could benefit more than ever from the chance to move forward in this way, please feel free to be in touch so that we can explore things further.
