Imagine the life you've always dreamed of living, with no barriers or boundaries. Imagine a life rich with success and achievement, endless physical energy, rewarding relationships, and a deep sense of personal fulfillment.

Visualise living every day with an overwhelming passion for what you do, having the courage to take the steps necessary to do what you thought was unachievable and having the focus and determination to make it real. This is where inspiration and clear, focused goals combine, to produce results that can change your life forever.


As Tony Robbins tells us, "you will be amazed at what you can accomplish simply by having a clear vision, a compelling purpose, and a clear massive action plan of how to get there."

Coaching can help develop your best potential by allowing you to perform at your peak. Through coaching we draw on your strengths, helping you to overcome internal resistance that may have held you back in the past. As you continue to work with a trained coaching professional you can enhance your ability to work as a high performing leader or team member.

What value will coaching provide for you and your business?

Business coaching is a dynamic partnership between coach and client.
The coach is there to help you reach extraordinary results which you might not otherwise reach.

Many of our clients confirm that, as external coaches, we can support the learning and development efforts of your internal professionals and can assist managers and team leaders to achieve results in a much shorter and focused timeframe as the coaching process taps into a clearly defined need.

Coaching adds clarity and focus to the process of visioning and goal achievement in both your personal and business life.

It is about maximising your potential and focusing on what will add real value and deciding what outcomes are really important.

As Executive Coaches, PEOPLE RESOURCES partner with people who are already motivated to making changes and are ready to set a course of action that will transform ideas and aspirations into concrete plans.

Why use a coach?

A good coach will help you recognise where you can best focus your positive energy on achieving the results you want. The coach will assist you in making choices that are clearly aligned to both your business and your own personal values.

With clear and focused goals and objectives, the coach will work with you to systematically eliminate what is not working and focus on what will work, in order to transform both your business and personal life.

What Are the Options? How does Coaching Work?

Most coaches work on a one-to-one basis with the client over an agreed period.

The coaching session can take place on-site or at an agreed external venue. The coach and client agree a timetable of sessions over an agreed period with specific reviews built in every four sessions. Often, clients in transition prefer more intensive work to keep them focused.

In the coaching session the focus is totally on the client and you will be challenged to keep your commitments.

Commitment by your Coach

The coach will work in partnership with you, to support you in achieving your most important objectives and is committed to your success. Complete confidentiality will be maintained at all times. If you are comfortable to proceed with your coach, PEOPLE RESOURCES will draw up a coaching contract for the specified period.

The coaches provided by PEOPLE RESOURCES are Professional Certified Coaches and have extensive experience at senior level in both the public and private sector.

A Dynamic Coaching Partnership

  • Your coach is totally committed to your success-and can see beyond your blind spots.
  • When you hire a coach, you make a huge commitment to yourself and your business.
  • You will set compelling goals that you will want to accomplish.
  • You will hold yourself responsible and accountable for achieving your goals.
  • The coach will keep you focused consistently building momentum.
  • Your coaching programme will be customised to suit you.

How does Coaching Work? What is the Process?

Each individual session normally lasts from one to two hours by mutual agreement. Change takes time, so an initial six to twelve month commitment is usual. Some clients choose to work with us for longer periods.

At PEOPLE RESOURCES we initially meet with the client to ensure that they are fully informed about the process and to that they have the best fit with their coach.

Thereafter, sessions are conducted at an agreed duration and time.

The client would complete a brief Coaching Intake Form to give the coach some idea of their background and contact details. At specific intervals during the coaching process the client would complete a Coaching Review Form to give them the opportunity to review the process and to give their own personal feedback.

A professional coach becomes your supportive, objective partner in business to encourage you to stretch your goals and stay focused on the issues that matter to you most. We will work together in developing a vision for your personal and professional success by focusing on positive actions that create the results you want.

Coaching Results

In the U.S., Executive coaching was found to deliver an ROI of nearly six times the initial cost of coaching, according to a study to determine its impact. Seventy percent of the executives surveyed valued the ROI on coaching at $100,000 or more, and almost 30 percent valued the ROI on coaching between $500,000 and $1 million. -- Survey of 100 senior executives conducted by Right Management Consultants, July, 2004. In a similar study, a Fortune 500 Company found that among 77% of the respondents undertaking a leadership programme, coaching had significant or very significant impact on at least one of nine business measures. Productivity improved 60% and employee satisfaction increased by 53%. Survey of 43 leadership development participants conducted by Metrix Global, LLC, 2003.
