Bendelta’s coaching philosophy is based on the ‘scientist-practitioner’ model of professional coaching practice, drawing on extensively researched and validated ‘evidence-based’ principles, concepts and practice established in the behavioural sciences.
Executive Coaching is a leadership development intervention, where individuals can work privately and individually with their coach to develop specific leadership competencies, prepare for change, or transition into a new role.
The process of executive coaching facilitates an outcome/s, which is set by the coachee. Each executive coaching programme is unique to the individual being coached and the competencies they want to develop.
Executive coaching is a confidential process and one that stretches and challenges the coachee, as they develop new skills and behaviours. It is also a process where in the moment feedback is given, based on what the coach sees, hears and observes. As Bill Gates has said “We all need people who give us feedback. That’s how we improve”. Eric Schmidt, Executive Chairman of Google goes one step further when he suggests that “everybody needs a coach” because of the value to people of “seeing themselves as others see them”.
Coached by Janine, I managed to unpick some the puzzle of what I perceived to be holding me back in reaching through to the next level in my career and move from being a manager and a respected technical expert and to enter into a leadership and a more strategic mindset. As both a coach and facilitator, Janine challenges, encourages and forces you to dig deep inside to find the answers. It’s a simultaneously uncomfortable and hugely satisfying experience!
I wanted to let you know how great an impact you have had on my personal growth as leader. As my coach, you have created a relationship of trust that has meant that I have experienced a 360-degree feedback process as a real opportunity for growth and increased self-awareness. I have found you joyful, encouraging, authentic, pragmatic, honest, enthusiastic, empathetic, wise and brave. I am conscious that I would not be where I am today without your careful and honest feedback
