What Difference Does Coaching Make?

CEO Prestolee Multi Academy Trust

Helen as a coach has improved the quality of leaders, as a mentor has supported our teams and been a key part of challenging our thinking on how we work as a trust. Not only has she helped shape our work on initial teacher training but has ensured we have fit for purpose systems and roles to really deliver a high-quality offer. Most of all I trust her to deliver and to support us with professionalism, compassion, and consideration. It is always a pleasure and highly stimulating to work on anything with Helen.

Leadership 360 Feedback

As leaders progress, it can be hard to get useful and specific feedback about the impact of our leadership style
and behaviours on teams and individuals.

The Real World Group's 360 leadership diagnostic focuses on 'leadership engagement' identified through grounded research. The online survey is emailed to those you manage, peers and managers for feedback, enabling you to identify what’s going well and where to focus your professional development. The diagnostic helps leaders:

  • Develop awareness and insight
  • Identify strengths and 
  • Focus Development

The Model is based on four key areas for leadership engagement. Your feedback will be based on specific questions about how you work within these areas.

Once your report is complete we’ll schedule a 90min feedback/coaching session to review your report and plan how to further enhance your leadership impact.

I began working with Helen following a recommendation from a colleague and couldn't have received better advice. Each and every coaching session has challenged and moved my thinking on. Helen's skilled questioning has enabled me to deepen understanding of my own leadership and helped me grapple and work through situations and scenarios. Helen is a brilliant coach and has been instrumental in my leadership development over the past twelve months.
