It’s amazing what 30 or 40 minutes of focused one-to-one coaching can achieve.
Insightful questioning and deep listening from a skilled coach can quickly get to the core of a problem, help someone discover what is really getting in the way, and come up with do-able actions to move them on immediately.
During my last coaching marathon with third sector organisations, we found solutions to a whole range of challenges in our speed coaching sessions – plucking up courage to tackle a difficult colleague, speaking up in a high-profile meeting, coping with workload ‘overwhelm’, to one manager having a light bulb moment about how she could help her team work more effectively together. There was a real buzz in the organisations I was invited into it.
Speed coaching feedback
“Extremely helpful – it helped me to set realistic goals and stop me feeling guilty.”
“Very helpful for building my confidence, especially in meetings.”
“The session helped me to realise what I can do to improve how I feel about my work and career – it made me really motivated. Thank you!”
So, why am I am telling you all this now…?
I like to offer something a bit special for this initiative so I am planning a new coaching marathon:
- I’ve got up to ten coaching slots to give away to third sector organisations in the week of 20 May
- If I offer you a slot you can use it to give four people a 45-minute coaching session or
- six people a 30-minute coaching session. It’s up to you.
Why not take this opportunity to help members of your team de-stress, manage their time more effectively or delegate better?

The deadline for registration is 5.30pm on Tuesday 14 May but don’t hang around. I’ve got a maximum ten coaching slots to give away and can’t guarantee one to every organisation that applies.
