How We Can Help
More and more people are trying to find out how to get that ‘missing something’ in their life or work.There is more to be had and it is within your reach!
A study by The International Coaching Federation shows that most clients reported improved work performance, more efficient time management, increased team effectiveness, and more growth and opportunities.
The same study found that coaching clients noted greater self-confidence, more effective communication skill and better work-life balance.
The reason that coaching has become so popular for individuals and companies is that it works!
Do I Need leadership coaching?
Being an effective leader is not always easy and like any skill, it takes time and effort and needs nurturing. Leadership can often involve facing difficulties and obstacles that will test your skills and patience so it makes sense to be prepared for lots of different circumstances that require your leadership skills.
The problem is that most people in leadership roles are busy with the day-to-day tasks and overseeing the work that needs to be done. It can be very hard to find the time to nurture your leadership skills if you’re busy with meetings, paper work, agendas, etc.
Our clients use the services of a Luminosa Coaching because they want to improve their situations, improve performance and achieve goals. They want to learn new ways of thinking and approaching situations, in order to get better results. Our skilled coaches use a combination of observation, questioning, listening and feedback to create a conversation rich in insight and learning.
What You Can Expect From Luminosa Coaching?
The role of coach provides a kind of support distinct from any other. We will focus solely on your situations with the kind of attention and commitment that you rarely experience elsewhere. Your coach will listen to you, with a genuine curiosity to understand who you are, what you think and generally how you experience the world. We will then reflect back to you, with the kind of objective assessment that creates real clarity. During conversations, your coach will encourage you to rise to challenges, overcome obstacles and get into action.
A coaching relationship is like no other, simply because of its combination of objective detachment and commitment to the goals of the individual. Because the relationship is based on trust and openness, the contents of your discussions will be confidential.
What your coach will expect from you?
In return, your coach will encourage you to stay committed to the coaching process. This means showing up and being on time for sessions, taking your own notes where appropriate, and keeping any agreements you make during the sessions.
In addition, your coach needs you to be open to the potential of coaching. That means contributing to conversations honestly and openly. For example, if something is not working, your coach needs to know. If you have concerns or problems, voice them. If you know why a problem is occurring, say so. The strength and power of coaching relates strongly to the level of openness and trust between the coach and the coachee.
Our Clients Say
Over the course of my coaching sessions I strongly feel that I have developed a new dimension to my business model. This was through positive reinforcement and encouragement to develop my own ideas. Specifically, I feel that I have personally improved in the following areas - improved confidence on starting new projects, developing new strategies for how to start new projects and thinking outside the box for overcoming potential obstacles. I would highly recommend Heather as a coachSutton Coldfield
Having recently retired from teaching and at a crossroads in terms of how I wish my working life to continue, coaching with Heather has proved an invaluable experience as, through our sessions, she has enabled me to become more focused and pro-active about my future. In our first session, by completing the simple but very meaningful 'Wheel of Life' task, Heather had allowed a holistic insight into my life and this has been a great starting point. During subsequent sessions, Heather's skillful and challenging questioning has taken me to unexpected places and enabled me to become more confident generally.Staffordshire
Although initially quite nervous about the sessions, I was keen to engage to support me in developing my leadership skills. Heather certainly challenged my thinking, the accountability of returning for the follow up sessions has ensured that I have been very pro-active and this has given me a real sense of empowerment. As a coach Heather is fantastic with a perfect balance of challenge and support.Birmingham

"The programme delivered by Luminosa Training was engaging; leaving the team at Now Education both motivated and excited. As a company we had become too comfortable; resting on our laurels believing that what we were doing and how we were doing it were enough for our business to achieve its strategic goals. Luminosa Training realigned all of this. Luminosa Training’s impact on your company, your team and you as an individual will be immediate, profound and long-lasting."Company Executive, Birmingham
"Without your help in coaching I don't think I would have even applied for the position! There were things that I said today that I don’t think I would have said before about me. I know I'm not great at selling myself, but when I said in the interview today "that I know I can do this job." I actually really believed it and was quite proud of myself for saying it! Thank you for helping me get rid of some of those doubtful thoughts about myself and I look forward to some future coaching sessions with you when you have time. Another big thank you."Phase Leader, Birmingham
