Our aim is to empower women leaders to step up into greatness through non-directive coaching support. Our clients can talk through their goals with their coach and work out the best steps to achieve them, with clients reporting that they were more confident and had been helped to develop by their coaching from QBC.
In June 2023 we sent out a survey to former clients and 47 responded. Here is the impact six free sessions from QBC had:
More than 93% of respondents said coaching from QBC had helped them to make progress with their goals.
More than 90% of respondents said coaching from QBC had made them feel more confident.
More than 87% of respondents said coaching from QBC had helped them to develop.
More than 89% of respondents felt they were more likely to progress their career as a result of being coached.
More than 79% of respondents said coaching from QBC had made them more aware of tools and resources they can access to support their personal development.
These are the principles of coaching we abide by at QBC.
1. Coaching is about change. Our clients come to us because they want something to change, to learn something, do something differently, achieve an aspirational goal or manage a problem. Our role is to help them to become more effective at doing that.
2. Coaching addresses the whole person – past, present and future. Whilst our work with clients may be focused on their growth and development within their working lives, we need to work with enough of the whole person to address the inevitable issues in their work that come from (or are heavily influenced by) their whole life – past, present and future.
3. The client is resourceful. The client has the resources to resolve their issues.
4. The coach’s role is to enable the client to access their resourcefulness. The client has an important perspective as an ‘expert of themselves and their context’.
5. Coaches should follow the client’s own agenda.
6. The coach and the client are equals. For the time that we are working together in a coaching context, this is a partnership of equals, even if in everyday life there are differences between them – for example around age or experience.
