Our purpose is to give individuals control over their own learning process with Executive Coaching on a one-to-one basis. We support them in clarifying their goals and providing the reflective space to enable them to make sense of their lives. As a result they can make the transitions and changes they want. Executive coaching is about releasing individual capability, raising self-awareness and helping individuals to become the people they want to be. Coaches act as external stimulators to the potential that other people hold within them. Hence we support individuals to take control of their lives!
Executive Coaching for Women
Coach Mentoring Ltd specialises in Executive Coaching for women. Our team of coaches have particular expertise and interest in coaching women for leadership development. This allows them to manage the demands of work life balance. Moreover, this develops their self-confidence, self-esteem and self-efficacy. Through Lis Merrick’s own experience we specialise in supporting women:
To cope with the stress of working in a male dominated work environment,
To use a psychometric tool, or not to use, that is the question? Perhaps you have answered this question. Further questions might be, why would you choose the Margerison-McCann Team Management Profile over other psychometrics? How can this tool enhance coaching conversations? How can the Profile help clarify the goals the individual seeks to address?
At Coach Mentoring Ltd coaches choose to offer the Team Management Profile for many reasons, but firstly what is it? Continue reading →
We are now hurtling towards Spring, the earth is telling us so, the weather, the flowers, the mornings are easier. The yoga classes have settled down to their more normal levels from the January upsurge. At the end of one of the early morning yoga classes last week, one of the students said, ‘I have to run, I am chasing an overseas client, the competition has quoted for the work I am hoping for.’Continue reading →
Are your traditional routes to goal achievement working? Our guest blogger Susie Dennis explores different routes to developing new goals.
It’s January, my inbox is full of ‘Goal setting’, ‘Intention setting’, ‘Starting 2019 with some sort of lofty resolution’. 2019: make a list of 19 goals. Join us on a 40km or 80km challenge. Linking to Apps with no direct social interaction. I am exhausted looking at it!
We write our lists, set goals, but how do we go about achieving them? There are no added pages for strategy. The rules are not given for how to ‘overcome’ all the excuses. No guidelines for the small steps in between Zero to Hero. Is the “hero’ a list of ‘stuff’, new car, job, place to live, holiday? Is it a list of learning? Courses to attend, interests to take up. Is it is a ‘health list’, loose weight, eat healthy, more exercise, I ‘should’ start: running, yoga, meditation?
Into the fourth day and already the focus has shifted, I can’t start my diet — there is too much cheese to eat up, can’t waste it. It is too cold to start running. The New Year sales are too good, preventing control of finances. Inbox at work is too full, meetings to attend. Only a couple of days until the kids go back to school, wanting to spend time with them.
So why bother to introduce coaching in your organisation? What benefits are your employees going to get out of it? Can people really support each other in their learning and development through having a simple developmental dialogue?

With the rise of internal and external coaching supervision, the development of coaches and their practice has been the central concern of both organisational scheme organisers and professionals. However, what is not well known or understood is the extent to which coaches themselves receive coaching as part of their personal development, as distinct from supervision on their professional practice.
Dr Paul Stokes and Lis Merrick completed an initial survey into this area and would like to share with those kind individuals who completed the survey, plus anyone else who is interested, what we discovered. Watch our webinar sharing our data, or read the article outlining our initial thinking. Continue reading →
The key players are the senior executive and the coach. However, executive coaching does not occur in a vacuum. There are a number of stakeholders involved in the executive coaching process — the executive’s leader, peers, reports, Human Resources — but the real focus is on the relationship between the coach and the individual executive.
