The Value of Coaching
2020 has brought about much change and transition for all, be that to our own lives or those we care about at home and work. The right support makes all the difference to success or failure, love or pain. I can bring that support.
elementas’s executive coaching is suitable for owner managers, directors, executives and senior leaders. Designed specifically to support men. Lou offers a safe, confidential space for professionals who need a sounding board, or those who need a trusted confident to talk to about their ideas, aspirations and challenges.
“If you would have asked me 12 months ago to seek help from somebody in Lou’s profession I might well have responded in the typical blokey way….I don’t need help, I’ll sort it myself! Since being put in touch with Lou I have been so pleased with the results from our meetings. I find that using Lou as a bit of a sounding board and being open to her suggestions has really put the concerns I had about my work into perspective. There is no doubt that my relationship with Lou has had a positive impact on not only my work but my family life as well”Wealth Manager – April 2018
You may be currently experiencing major life changing events. You may be reassessing your career direction or life choices. You may just feel that something is missing from your life. Whatever your individual situation, coaching provides 1:1 confidential, support.
Coaching is goal and outcome orientated. It enables you to access your inner resources to achieve results. Practically it is a slot in your diary to focus solely on you. Time to leave behind all the noise, to find true presence. To liberate your thinking and creative potential through engaging, structured discussions, questioning techniques, work practices combined with listening and space for stillness and reflection.
“Nice manner, you listen well. Feel relaxed in your presence. Your approach is different. You have a different way of thinking, a non-traditional approach. You have pointed me to think differently and as a result I have changed.”Dave Murray Vice President, GCP Technologies American Express
Coaching is specific to you and your individual needs. elementas creates a confidential space for you to harness your thinking and tap into your emotional intelligence. A break from your daily routines to notice and realise, to work things out, to fine-tune and importantly to come to your own natural balance.
Structured coaching conversations enable you to become more self-aware, more discerning. By identifying your hurdles (actual or perceived) and mind-set, you can encourage your own energy to flow more efficiently to focus on your goals.
‘Where attention goes, neural firing flows, and neural connection grows.’Daniel J. Siegel MD ‘Aware’ the science and practice of presence, 2018
