For organisations, we offer corporate coaching services and solutions to assist with the professional and personal development of individuals and teams. These solutions include team facilitation on topics such as leadership, coaching skills, communication, teamwork and culture.
Working closely with the CEO of a large European tourism body, we designed a professional development programme for APMEA regional employees. The objectives of the programme were to raise confidence levels to help team members be more empowered and to increase collaboration across the region.
We selected the strengths-based psychometric tool, Strengthscope®, to underpin the programme. Strengthscope® provides a precise and unique assessment of 24 work-based strengths, giving each employee a picture of themselves at their best. This helps each team member decide which strengths they would like to contribute more of to the team.
- We started off with a 1:1 coaching session for each team member looking at their Strengthscope® profile to understand how to bring their best to work every day, building a sense of ownership and empowerment.
- This was followed by a whole team workshop, which we facilitated in India, bringing together team members from across Australia, the Middle East and India. We focused on restating the team’s purpose and goals, introducing team members’ strengths and risks and creating a team charter for collaboration moving forward.
We supported the team in producing their own commitment to “Integrating for Solutions” whereby, when faced with a challenge, before starting to solve it or plan for it, they would consciously reach out to fellow APMEA team members who have strengths and/or experience that can help. The challenge then became an opportunity for growth and shared learning. The team reported many successes over the coming months through this new collaborative approach including faster project delivery times, more creative, innovative and impactful marketing campaigns and increased empathy and appreciation for their fellow team members.
We continue to support the team using Strengthscope®, by including a 1:1 coaching and feedback session as part of the onboarding process for new team members.
Global Tourism Body – Team Facilitation
I was referred to Helen as I was looking to understand more about our team's dynamic, abilities and qualities. On discussing with Helen, we opted to use a tool called Strengthscope, which is now part of our onboarding toolkit. However, a tool without the master is pretty useless and this is where Helen’s ability and talent comes in. Helen has a great knack with listening and interpreting the results on a one to one basis with each person. The feedback from myself and my multi-cultural team is that Helen is excellent! Hence we have continued to work with Helen and I personally work with Helen as my coach and am getting a lot of benefit from our discussions. I would not hesitate to recommend Helen, she is one of a kind!
