Gallanach Coaching Services

Our Expertise

Gallanach has expertise in working with Chairs, CEOs,  executive directors and senior leaders to help them excel in their leadership roles. Our tailored coaching service helps leaders to identify and work on key priorities in order to improve their own performance and that of their businesses.

As well as coaching leaders to better performance we also coach them through the challenges of career transitions.

In particular, we specialise in working with senior HR professionals looking to move into a Director or CEO role.

Our Coaching Approach

Evidence shows  coaching is most effective when focused on improving individual performance and that’s where we focus our efforts. We do this through:

  • a positive and supportive but challenging and accountable relationship;
  • an intent to help and enable by releasing the individual’s potential for change and learning;
  • consistent use of skilled questioning, active listening, helpful clarification and constructive feedback towards goals and objectives.

Action Learning Sets

We also provide facilitation for action learning sets.  Action learning is based on the concept that individuals learn powerfully from the combination of experience and reflection.

An action learning set is a group of people who work together with a facilitator over a period of time and who learn with and from each other through listening, questioning, challenge and support.  The aim of integrating action learning into an organisation is to support it to thrive by creating a culture of individual and organisational growth, effective problem solving, stronger networks, improved performance and high motivation. It’s been shown to be highly effective across all sectors.

Our Recent Work

Recent examples of our work include coaching:

  • a chair of a charity board through a turnaround programme and subsequent merger;
  • a Director of HR overseeing a cultural change programme following two large mergers;
  • two newly appointed leaders as they transition into their roles.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT US

I commissioned Norman to help embed our new values across our hospice and head office sites.  He quickly understood the challenges we faced and was able to identify the practical and achievable steps necessary to build on our values in order to improve engagement and performance throughout the organisation.  In doing this he quickly gained the confidence of our staff and had great professional credibility with our leadership team.  His work has enabled us to put our values at the heart of all we do.
