1. Step Up through Coaching

What is coacing? Coaching is a guided process; in which the coach helps you find your own solutions to the problems you’re handling. In coaching, we believe that each one of use has the best solution for our problem, but we don’t allocate enough time, or we don’t see the other half of the glass.

Why coaching? Because this way we help you find your own solution. If you find the best solution for yourself, you will be more determined to implement it.

Is coaching for me? If you would like to develop more, then yes – it is for you! If you are coordinating teams or processes and would like to have more success – it is for you!

There are a lot of approaches, but we concentrate on Solution Focus Coaching. Steve de Shazer and Insoo Kim Berg are the masters of this approach and they developed it in coaching, management and consultancy.

General objectives

  • When stuck in a problem, finding solutions
  • Finding solutions for daily activities
  • Improvement of personal performance
  • Develop the abilities of problem solving
  • Identify the best strategy in order to improve the team performance.

Specific objectives will be set together with the coachee and his manager.

Examples of topics common met in coaching sessions:

  • Time management
  • Delegation abilities – how to improve them?
  • Improvement of assertive communication
  • Team and project coordination
  • Conflict mediation
  • How to handle difficult members of the team?
  • Work life balance

… and many others 😊
