We offer a range of professional services including International Executive Coaches and Cross-cultural Facilitators, all with a wealth of experience in their chosen professions. At Urban Healing and our Coaching Partners we agree the framework and timescales from the outset, which we believe, makes it easy for the individual and the organisation to gauge the success of their programmes. Our executive coaches adhere to professional codes of ethics and are accredited by external coaching associations including Association for Coaching and APECS. We work with the strongest commitment to client confidentiality and create programmes tailored to both organisational needs and individual aspirations.”
Our coaches are accredited by independent coaching associations who demand the coach has the right level of training, qualifications, insurance, depth of experience and psychological expertise for membership and accreditation.
Checking accreditation is straightforward. It can be done on-line and an accredited coach will have their names on the accredited coach section of the website. It’s that simple!
APECS – The Association for Professional Executive Coaches and Supervisors and The Association for Coaching are two such organisations. Both have formal complaints procedures in place, just one of the benefits of using an independently accredited Coach.
Executive and Leadership Coaching is a confidential service for senior level staff up to and including Directors, MDs and CEOs. An external Coach provides an individualised service, which is completely impartial, practical, and affording the client the opportunity to focus on their key concerns within the context of the organisations’ strategies and vision.
cross cultural coaching
It’s easy to think of cross-culture differences when we look at other countries; however cross-cultural challenges can exist within our teams, departments and organisations.
It may also be worth considering national cultural challenges – behaviours and expectations within our businesses, and after that the bigger question would be – international and cross-border cultural issues.
Working in partnership with you, we can create bespoke programmes which can be designed to both energise and challenge teams in order to help them communicate with greater clarity for the company and for themselves. These include:
Cross-cultural training which helps to explore and understand the differences between organisational cultures, regional cultures, merging cultures and international cultures.
Breaking down barriers and stereotypes which can be obstructive in business relationships by demystifying culture beliefs and misunderstandings and building on a common language.
Our Facilitators will guide your teams and explore solutions for working more effectively by finding what strengths your team has and building on them.
Short and long-term planning creates strong goal focus and greater clarity on team objectives by agreeing ownership and timeframes for each team member.
Solution focused team coaching increases performance and raises morale by exploring how not to get stuck in problems, but rather focus on solutions.
Developing communications between team members leads to a better understanding of who does what the best.
Deal with unresolved issues and move forward, including understanding the need for empathy, active listening, assertiveness and clear communication in team meetings and on conference calls.
We will help you to create a common operating style for understanding roles and responsibilities, identifying and implementing corporate road-maps, sharing best practice and learning the benefits of seeing colleagues as business partners.
