Business Coaching and Mentorship

Coaching is a way of having conversations with someone else that are safe, supportive and challenging. Designed to be a thought-provoking and creative process to help you to maximise your personal and professional potential.

 

The purpose is to enhance the huge benefits to people who have coaching, particularly at times of change. You might see a coach as the way to improve how you relate to circumstances, to achieve goals or to explore new ways of approaching situations.

“Practise with a coach not your customer.”

 

Common benefits people experience from coaching include:

 

  • Better engagement and performance
  • Organisational effectiveness
  • Improved sense of direction and focus
  • Increased knowledge of self and self-awareness
  • Enhanced ability to relate to and influence others
  • Stronger motivation
  • Improved performance effectiveness
  • Increased resourcefulness
  • Greater confidence

 

Central to the philosophy of coaching is a belief in the potential of the person being coached to improve their performance and develop their own solutions. While the coach need not be a technical expert in aspects of your work, they must have credibility to build an effective partnership with you.

What happens during a coaching session?

Ramsay will engage asking the right discovery questions and understanding key business subtleties a dynamic coaching session is developed. Coaching usually lasts for a defined period and focuses on specific work related skills and goals.

 

Goals will be set at the start of the coaching relationship, in a way that works for you, to give focus. On a continuing basis, we will evaluate these goals together.

Is coaching confidential?

Coaching is based on trust and openness, and the content of your sessions is confidential unless there is a perceived risk to you or to others. A mentor is someone who offers you space to think who has already had experience of the area you wish to explore and has knowledge and networks which may be appropriate to share as you develop and grow as a professional and as a person.

 

A coach provides value through:

 

  • Teaching you about specific areas where you need more knowledge
  • Coach you
  • Help your career and professional development by sharing networks or giving you new opportunities to shadow them
  • Challenge you beyond your comfort zone
  • Focus in your development as an individual and as a professional
  • Support you to strengthen and develop leadership skills in a time of rapid change
  • Give you space to reflect on your own and others’ learning and leadership approaches

What happens during a mentoring session?

A skilled mentor will use a combination of questioning, listening, observation and feedback to create a conversation with you that is rich in insight and learning. They will encourage you as you do what you need to do to move things forward and share with you their own and others experience.

 

Mentoring can be an informal conversation or a formal program.

 

Mentees observe, question, and explore.

Mentors demonstrate, explain and model.

Is mentoring confidential?

Mentoring is based on trust and openness, and what you discuss with your mentor is confidential unless there is a perceived risk to you or to others.

You’ll never really know what you’re capable of until there’s someone to push you outside your comfort zone

Partnering with Ramsay.

 

Brainstorming “Nobody is smarter than all of us.” In other words, the collective power of many is far superior to the single power of one, which speaks to the value a mentor brings in brainstorming innovative ideas. However, doing so is both an art and a science.

 

Concepts With Ramsay you will find somebody solely dedicated to acting as your own personal sounding board. Doing so allows the mentor to ask powerful questions that unearths deeply rooted values otherwise firmly planted.

 

Be answerable Isn’t it strange how easy it is to break the promises we make to ourselves, but less so when we involve other people? A mentor serves as an accountability partner who challenges you to strategise and develop your goals while aligning your efforts toward achieving them.

 

Be open to receive direction A business mentor will challenge your thinking, goals and willingness to grow. A mentor also acts as a role model because of the experience that he or she shares. Additionally, a mentor has unique insight that broadens your business awareness.

 

The value of mentoring resides in the mental tools the mentee learns that help him or her navigate toward success both inside and outside of the business world.

 

To determine whether you need a business mentor or a sales and marketing mentor, consider your current business goals. If you believe your needs primarily lie in personal and staff development as well as creating an organisational vision and forming well-structured business systems and processes, then it is likely a business mentor from Ramsay Business Consultancy will be the right choice.
