There are many people who like to give the impression that coaching is only for the elite, that it’s complicated and intellectual or even just too hippy or idealistic to apply to real life. Well, it can be if you make it so but we see it more simply than that…no matter what your current situation in life is, you should be able to access and benefit from coaching.
Cazbro offers tailored one-to-one and group coaching that can be aligned with your organisation’s strategy and goals. Cazbro employs business and executive coaching techniques to overcome and change limiting or unhelpful behaviours and thinking. We help people identify their strengths, resources and positive behaviours. Positive steps and achievements are recognised and celebrated which builds confidence in tackling new tasks, problems, etc.
Shifting the perspective of the coachee allows for improved creative, innovative and critical thinking. We engage the coachee in tasks designed to provide skills and tools to overcome barriers and obstacles. We explore how to maximise their effectiveness and how they can take this forward.
Businesses and organisations are made up of people. The success of the organisation largely depends on the quality of the relationships between these people whether it be in team, inter-departmental or broader organisational settings. Coaching is a mechanism to assist staff in developing a range of interpersonal and communication skills leading to more harmonious and productive working relationships – both internal and external to the organisation or business.
Organisational downsizing, flatter management structures and broader management remits can mean that newly promoted individuals often need to make large step-changes in performance because of the requirements of their new roles. Coaching can help these individuals quickly overcome gaps in their knowledge, skills, behaviour and ability.
What are the Benefits of Coaching from Cazbro?
- Provides people with insight on not only their strengths and resources but also their skill gaps and growth opportunities.
- Supports changes in attitudes and behaviour that can directly translate into more effective performance at work.
- Enables people to focus and take a critical look at their approaches and style at work.
- Helps people identify barriers that are preventing them from being more effective in their role.
- Promotes individual self-awareness and self-management.
- Helps people adjust to changes in the workplace and commit to new performance goals.
- Offers a flexible and tailored approach to development.
Knowing what you need to change is only the first step – it’s not enough to generate actual changes in a person’s style or work habits. Coaching focusses on manageable change, flexibility and support for ongoing development. It is a challenging experience which requires individual responsibility for performance and development but this helps to accelerate learning. The Cazbro coaching process enables people to actually take action to produce lasting changes.
Strengthen your reputation as a responsible employer
Investing in your workforce, ensuring they are equipped for the job you are asking them to do and developing their skills is cited as a key element of recruiting and retaining talented staff, reducing absenteeism and increasing productivity. Employers are also increasingly being held accountable for ensuring good mental health and wellbeing of their employees at work. Why settle for an average reputation when you can have a brilliant reputation!
Do you lack the motivation needed to reach your goals? Maybe you get frustrated by setbacks and feel you are not enjoying life as much as you should.
Perhaps you want to make specific life changes but need the courage or confidence. If so, maybe it’s time you discovered the benefits of personal coaching. We believe Cazbro can help. Your coach will work with you to close the gap between where you are and where you want to be in life.
At Cazbro our goal is to make sure you reach your goals – whatever they may be. Imagine what you could achieve if you had someone 100% committed to your success – your own personal cheerleader, spurring you on, encouraging and supporting you – someone who is dedicated to helping you improve every aspect of your life.
Our sessions would be conducted over a period of time selected by you – you are in control. Most of our clients prefer to conduct their sessions by telephone, but face-to-face sessions can also be arranged. Our partnership would be entirely confidential and together we would keep you on track and overcome your personal challenges. You don’t have to be a victim of circumstance – you can be the creator of your future.
Personal coaching is a one to one relationship between coach and client. The format of weekly sessions helps sustain your enthusiasm and determination to ensure that the results are lasting beneficial changes – unlike the temporary ‘high’ that can follow a seminar or motivational talk.
There are many people who like to give the impression that coaching is only for the elite, that it’s complicated and intellectual or even just too hippy or idealistic to apply to real life. Well, it can be if you make it so but I see it more simply than that…if you have a life you should be able to access and benefit from personal coaching.
Cazbro offers coaching and training without the cheese…not preaching, Californian, tree hugging, false, flowery or air‑punching (well maybe a little air‑punching but only if you feel like it) …instead it’s practical, genuine, down‑to‑earth, realistic and simple to apply to whatever may be going on in your life. The tools, exercises and discussions are relevant to real life situations and produce valid solutions and extraordinary outcomes for people which can be sustained long after the course has finished.
It is not a coach’s job to tie you into their services and the feeling that you will only succeed if you have them by your side…Cazbro arms you with an arsenal of skills which allows you to tap into your very own resources whenever you need them. Courage, confidence, self‑reliance, independence, freedom, whatever it is you need, you have them to hand.
Coaching is an equal partnership between coach and client, not a teacher/student relationship. It takes commitment on both sides and you need never doubt ours…Cazbro is passionate about our clients’ successes, whatever that may be for them, and that’s what adds to the success of Cazbro.
So, think about it, could you benefit from unchaining your potential?
Coaching creates a safe environment for young people to explore their individuality, their beliefs and their values. It helps them to discover and recognise their own potential and identify their goals and ambitions for their future.
By raising self-awareness, self-confidence and resilience in young people, they learn respect for themselves and others. They are encouraged to accept responsibility, accountability and ownership of their behaviours, attitudes and actions, in turn, creating better outcomes for themselves.
When you consider that young people are our future and, as individuals, have a huge impact on our communities and society, isn’t it worth investing in their future?
The Cazbro coaching process encompasses:
- Self-awareness and self-efficacy
- Social, emotional and personal development
- Building resilience
- Team working skills
- Interpersonal skills
- Communication skills
- Building confidence and self esteem
- Transitional stages
- Employability skills
- Career planning
A few words about coaching for young people from our founder, Carol Brown.
People can sometimes get a bit confused about what coaching is. They may get a bit nervous about what they’ll be asked to do…will it be weird?!! Well, the answer is no. No, it’s not. It’s just like a normal conversation but a conversation with a purpose.
It’s not preachy, false, flowery or cheesy. Oh, and it doesn’t involve hugging trees either.
In order to get your body fit you might hire a Personal Trainer. They will certainly provide you with the exercises to do and help with the motivation, but to get results, you have to do the work. As your Personal Coach, I will help you exercise your thought processes and get your life fit, but again, the ‘work’ is done by you.
So, how do I do it? Well, firstly let me say that you won’t get any finger wagging from me. I dislike anyone wagging their finger at me - it just makes me want to bite it!
- I’m not going to tell you what to do. I’ll ask you what you want to do.
- I’m not going to solve your problems for you. I’ll help you to solve your own problems.
- I’m not going to say “Aw, there there.” I’m going to say “So, what are we going to do about it?”
- I’m not going to try to organise and run your life. I’ll help you to organise and run your life.
- I’m not going to come up with all the answers. I’ll help you to find your own answers.
- I’m not going to influence situations on your behalf. I’ll help you to influence situations for the better.
Coaching is concerned with now and the future. Although your past has an influence on who you are now, it doesn’t decide who you are or how you choose to live your life from now onwards. You decide that - that choice is yours.
You might not realise it, but you already have lots of skills and qualities and abilities. Your Cazbro Coach can help you to tap into them so that you can get more of what you want out of your life.
Working with your Cazbro Coach can help you figure out what you want to do and to achieve. Your Cazbro Coach is also there to help you overcome any obstacles or barriers getting in your way, so that the pathway towards success is as clear and direct as possible. It’s about working with you and encouraging you to find out for yourself what it is you really want – and then getting it…
