Perfect balance of challenge and support

My coaching group met initially on a weekly basis as part of a Clore pilot. It was so transformational that we have decided to continue and we now meet every 8 weeks.

The fact that the group was cross-sector meant that we could all feel free to be totally open and honest – especially important as most of the issues raised were related to sensitive HR situations.

Clore gave us information on coaching techniques and some sample open questions. We developed a really strengths-based approach with a perfect balance of challenge and support.

The group is incredibly supportive, thoughtful, reflective and respectful – there are no egos. We are all at different stages in our career but that doesn’t make a difference, everyone is there for the same purpose.

In our day jobs, we are all used to giving support or advice so going into coaching mode took a bit of practice – we were all honest about this and could pull each other up – no one felt berated. That in itself has been a very useful learning process.

I was going through a difficult HR situation which has now been resolved, in part as a result of the support of the group. They helped me manage my worries and concerns about doing it properly, fairly and in a human way. As a result, I was able to manage my emotions, and also to maintain a positive relationship with the individual.

It has been a joyful experience!
