News in brief

Team day

In light of the sustained growth in our team across Europe the time was right to hold a GCA team day.

The directors, the executive coaching team and the supporting staff came together to Meet, Share, and Connect at a team day in central London. With a focus on continual shared learning it was quickly apparent how valuable it was to devote time to sharing expertise across the team, strengthening the collective vision and extending ourselves to deliver even better service to our clients.

Presentations on blended learning solutions, executive coaching, building a coaching culture, 360 degree feedback and psychometrics, supervision, research, and team coaching provided a fantastic vehicle for communicating ideas and sharing expertise across the full range of our services.

The energy and enthusiasm from the whole team was truly inspirational and our very warm thanks are extended to everyone for their participation, as we continue to build a strong and transformational business committed to excellence in the profession.

Professional development

Contributing to the growing body of experience in the area of team coaching Andrew Cooper, Director, GCA, has begun the Systemic Team Coach Master Practitioner Diploma with the Academy of Executive Coaching. Commenting on his reasons for joining the programme Andrew said,

“ Every day we see the powerful effects 1:1 executive coaching has in transforming the impact of the individual and leaders. I have joined the programme as I see great potential in expanding the impact coaching can have in creating high performing teams. I am therefore very keen to explore possibilities and contribute to the development of best practice in this area”.

Andrew has agreed a collaboration with Faithful & Gould which will involve Andrew and Tara Nolan (a colleague on the programme) working with the London and South East Region management team.

“ We are excited to be working with Stephen Hateley and his team. We will start our diagnostic work In July 2013 and then collaborate on a monthly basis by providing a programme of input and team facilitation and 1:1 coaching. With the agreement of the team we hope to share key insights gained from this collaboration, so watch out for thought provoking updates!”
