It’s only after you’ve stepped outside your comfort zone that you begin to change, grow and transform.

In today’s complex world our ability to transition between different scenarios and situations is paramount to our success.
To support those going through a transition, we offer an effective and proven Coaching Transition Framework that includes areas such as: shifts in mindset, behaviours, skills, role, expectations, etc, whilst building resilience and personal leadership.
1. YOUR ORGANISATION: The starting point of the coaching programme is to gain a good understanding of what great coaching outcomes look like. This will generate understanding, buy-in and commitment and will typically include input from your line manager.
2. YOUR ROLE: We spend time clarifying the ‘shift’ required in your focus, role, skills, mindset and/or expectations, and gaining an understanding of the key stakeholders who will influence the outcomes of the transition.
3. YOUR DEVELOPMENT: We put the spotlight on developing the specific skills, mindset and behaviours required to excel in the transition and achieve your desired results.
4. YOUR NEEDS: We explore any perceived barriers getting in your way and find pragmatic solutions to develop the necessary traction for you to make the shift with impact and ease.
My CDS coach took into account the work situation, my personality and work style. She demonstrated a range of excellent coaching skills including listening skills and empathy, being very supportive and encouraging. We worked on practical solutions and specific action plans.
She was available between sessions to check in, act as a sounding board and offering advise where appropriate, which was essential given the complexity of the situation we were working on. Not only was the coaching experience invaluable in supporting me transition through a difficult time at work, it has helped me improve my skills as a people manager.
My Coach was just excellent and I would highly recommend the coaching transition process.”
“My CDS coach provided independent challenge – asking questions that I would never ask myself – it was invaluable. It led to a better understanding of myself.”
“Having been newly promoted to a “Head of” role, coaching allowed me to develop some of the management skills required and gave me a better understanding of how I wish to be viewed by others. It also allowed me to talk through specific issues we had within the team and allowed for an open and honest discussion in a confidential setting.
I appreciated the opportunity to talk through challenges faced in the business and how this balanced against pulls on my time outside work. Having the chance to get things “off my chest” helped my mind and aided with the transition in my new role.”
“I have received coaching from my CDS coach on a regular basis over recent months and found her to be outstanding in her ability to facilitate desired outcomes in many and various situations.
In particular, I am currently completing a longstanding complex commercial contract and transitioning into new work. She has been excellent in supporting me to identify my key strengths and achievements, to be able to articulate these in an impactful and succinct manner and is currently working with me to further assist my personal development.
She consistently challenges my thinking and enables me to look at situations and events in different ways and through different lenses. She is able to facilitate my reframing of negative perspectives and open up a range of options and opportunities which has contributed significantly to positive transformations in a number of areas in my work and personal life.”
“The coaching process is a safe environment to think through development with an independent person. This has provided me with different ways of looking at my career and to help pull out key highlights which have helped my transition into a new role. I enjoyed the opportunity to complete surveys to better understand how my personality/leadership style.”
