EXECUTIVE COACHING

Executive coaching is more than helping a senior person gain self-awareness, clarify goals, achieve development objectives and unlock potential while acting as a sounding board. Executive coaching is about the whole person,  dreams, fears and most deep seated frustrations. At National Green Standard we also believe that great executive coaching will have an impact on the individual and the team that they work with because through the process of coaching a senior executive becomes a better leader, is enabled to let go of tasks that should be delegated, becomes empowered to make quality decisions and gains clarity of purpose for themselves and their team.

Coaching is a fantastic tool to release potential and unblock an organisation from moving forward, we know because we’ve been coaching people for over fifteen years and our results are impressive. We have a long list of clients who have gained promotions and worked into positions that previously would have seemed unachievable. We help people see their own and others’ potential, we help break the cycle of doubt and self-questioning that no one is immune to.

Testimonials say it all and here are just a few:

Mary McLuskey is a unique coach. She has the ability to put you immediately at ease and makes discussing any issue, business or personal seem the most natural thing to do. Mary’s ability to probe issues is a neutral yet challenge way has helped me on numerous occasions to identify ways forward that I would not otherwise have found. Her style of coaching appears disarmingly simple yet she has a powerfully persuasive ability to get you to look at the heart of the matter and come to solutions that you might otherwise overlook or dismiss. Mary’s knowledge of human interaction and business matters places her uniquely among coaches. If you are looking for someone who can help facilitate change at either a personal or organisational level I would highly recommend Mary.

‘Mr Falkirk’ Alex Totten supports National Green Standard Leadership Courses at Falkirk Football Ground

Mr Falkirk, Alex Totten, has expressed his support for the National Green Standard Leadership and Strategic Management Course being delivered at Falkirk Football ground kicking off  on 22nd October

Today’s leaders need many skills and they need to work and act flexibly if they are to succeed. That’s why traditional training programmes are no longer the best option for the emerging leader.

Falkirk Football Community Foundation (FFCF) has a long history of training people in the skills needed on and off the pitch and working in partnership with top leadership trainers they are now pleased to offer a new Action Learning Leadership and Strategic Management Course. Combining leadership training with physical activity ‘On the Pitch’ is an excellent way to develop skills and embed learning. Add into this mix an action learning approach and you have a powerful set of tools transferable throughout your career.

Mary McLuskey executive coach and management consultant said, “Action learning is a very positive and pragmatic way to apply classroom learning in the workplace; it is a sophisticated process to solve complex organisational problems. Reflection and learning form this approach allows you to make better decisions and become a true leader.”

David Stewart, FFCF Community Manager said, “bringing together the ‘On the Pitch’ training with leadership and strategic management development is a unique offering and one that is rarely available. The opportunity to learn within the walls of a football club does not happen often. Getting to develop skills and knowledge in the changing room or corridors of power adds an extra dimension to the learning process.”

The training programme comprises of a set of 5 core modules plus 1 elective module. In addition each module is matched to an ‘On the Pitch’ training activity and a one hour session of executive one-to-one coaching. The cost of the course includes Falkirk Foundation training kit so that each cohort has access to the full spectrum of learning.

“All we ask is that participants come ready to learn in a new way and bring their trainers for activity ‘On the Pitch’,” said Mary.
