How does coaching work?

Coaching is a powerful tool for personal and professional growth. It helps you transform your jumbled thoughts, plans, and emotions into something constructive AND actionable. In just one session, your coach can enable you to move forward, push past obstacles and find the clarity you’ve been searching for. Sounds good, right?!

How will a coach help me?

Think of your coach as your growth partner, guiding you through the journey of self-awareness, improvement and action with clever questioning techniques, tools and frameworks tailored specifically to you and your situation. 

Everyday life is always presenting us with opportunities to learn, grow and realise more of our potential, but this can be hard to acknowledge, especially when we’re too caught up in the hustle and bustle of ‘doing’, unable to make time for self-reflection. Even if we do, we don’t always have in our conscious awareness and the knowledge we need to consolidate our learnings and adapt our behaviours to get us closer to where we want to be. 

Working with a coach is your fast track! A quicker path to get to the result that you need and want. It’s efficient, action-focused and bespoke to you and your goals. 

Through More Happi you have a team of coaches to support you on your journey – you can use the same one, or work with a few.

Coaching is always driven towards an action. Here’s how it works:

Each session is driven by action. You’ll begin by picking a topic (it helps to come with something to talk about). Vague or specific is fine, the general rule of thumb is it’s something you want more or less of, and can include anything from goals, to challenges, problems and everything in between. This will be your starting point for the conversation.

From here, your coach will then help you:

  • Understand what’s important to you
  • Recognise and set priorities
  • Set tangible goals to get there
  • Break these down into actions, so you leave the session with a clear next step

Along the way, they will help raise your awareness of yourself and your situation so you’re better equipped and informed as you move forward.

How do I decide what I want to talk about in my coaching session?

When it comes to squeezing every drop out of your coaching session, it can help to identify the right focus for your session. Enter the More Happi goal planner. A simple yet effective tool to help you visually identify the priority areas in your life that you’d like to change or give your attention to, setting the stage for a more productive and focused coaching journey.

What other ways can coaching help me and my team?

Coaching is a versatile and effective tool for personal and professional growth. Whether you’re a manager, part of a team, or an individual employee, coaching can be a game-changer in overcoming challenges, achieving your goals, fostering development, and enhancing your skills. 

Coaching for Managers

Enhancing Leadership Skills:

As a manager, you can use coaching to enhance your leadership skills. A coach can help you identify your strengths and areas for improvement, allowing you to become a more effective and impactful leader.

For example, you might work with a coach to improve your communication skills, decision-making abilities, or conflict-resolution strategies. Through feedback and guidance, you can become a better leader, driving your team to success.

Developing Your Team:

Coaching can also be a valuable tool for developing your team members. By employing coaching techniques, you can empower your employees to reach their full potential.

Encourage your team to use coaching to set goals, overcome challenges, and identify their growth opportunities. This individualised approach fosters their development, increases purpose and boosts team productivity.

Coaching for Teams

Strengthening Collaboration:

In a team setting, coaching can improve collaboration and enhance problem-solving abilities. Coaching encourages open communication and helps team members understand each other better.

A coach can act as a facilitator for learning, giving team members a confidential space to discuss their strengths, weaknesses, and working styles. This enhances teamwork and leads to better project outcomes.

Conflict Resolution:

Teams may encounter conflicts from time to time. Coaching can provide strategies for resolving conflicts constructively.

Coaching for Employees

Professional Development:

Employees can use coaching to advance in their careers. This may involve creating healthy habits, pinpointing obstacles, and setting and achieving personal and professional goals.

For example, an employee seeking a promotion can work with a coach to create a development plan, acquire the necessary skills, and demonstrate readiness for the new role. 

Overcoming Challenges:

Employees can also use coaching to overcome personal pain points such as burnout, overwhelm, imposter syndrome and more, as well as address issues in the workplace that may be affecting their mental health and performance.

For example, if an employee is struggling with time management, a coach can work with the coachees to build bespoke strategies, helping them become more organised and efficient.

How does More Happi differ from different coaching providers?

We’ve created a new model for coaching. One that’s a win-win for everyone.

Fully trained coaches volunteer their time in order to fast-track their experience, gain accreditation hours, take part in training to improve their skills and achieve more advanced qualifications.

Organisations benefit from having an empowered, motivated team while employees enjoy bespoke career and life development, problem-solving and decision-making in the areas that matter to them.

Coaching is a powerful tool that can be applied in various professional settings. Managers can enhance their leadership skills and develop their teams, while teams can strengthen collaboration and resolve conflicts. Individual employees can use coaching to pursue their career goals and overcome challenges. By harnessing the potential of coaching, you can unlock your true potential and achieve greater success in your professional journey.
