Why Cognitive Behavioural coaching?
Cognitive Behavioural Coaching (CBC) focuses on changing the two areas that as human beings we have control over:- namely our thoughts and behaviours. It shows people how to change their philosophy so that they can adopt realistic, logical and pragmatic thinking into their professional and personal lives. This in turn will lead to robust, constructive behaviour and resilience. Its overall aim is to create a culture of co-operation, creativity and enthusiasm - which are the real drivers of success.
The emphasis will be on psycho-education rather than motivation to ensure clients are psychologically able and have the competency skills to deal with 'tough' challenges.
Coaching is no longer viewed as a 'luxury' or some form of 'peripheral activity' but as an essential management and leadership tool.
