What is Coaching?
There are many, many definitions of coaching. Essentially, coaching is a conversation between a coach and a client which is focused on designing and implementing specific, meaningful and lasting changes in the client’s professional and/or personal life.
Coaching is solution focused. Coaching is future focused. A coach does not concentrate on past experiences but moves the client systematically towards setting goals to reach whatever they desire for their future. Coaching is action focused – you won’t just dream about a brighter future – you will take actions towards making it happen!
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
“Heather’s coaching has had a huge impact on me, I now feel much more focused on my future. She has given me practical tools that I have used to follow through ideas, I’m so proud of my achievements. Thank you Heather.”Assistant Headteacher, 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
