Coaching and mentoring
for success

Do you need a coach?

› Do you need someone to listen with empathy?
› Challenge your assumptions and limiting self-beliefs?
› Would you value discussing your future career plans in a confidential and safe environment?
› Do you need someone to help you set clear reflective and objective goals?
› Do you need someone to encourage and motivate you to overcome obstacles and encourage you to take action?

If you have answered ‘yes’ to most or all of these questions, you would probably benefit from having a coach.

We can provide you with a high-quality confidential service where we match you with appropriate and trained coaches. We use a mixture of face to face, ‘Skype’ and telephone support over an agreed duration.




Coaching is arranged around your needs. We are very flexible regarding the times, communication methods and venues we use. The duration of a coaching session is very much dependent on your needs. Sometimes you may just need a two-minute phone call, and other times you might want an hour-long face to face meeting. We will agree on the frequency and duration of coaching sessions with you.

We know that circumstances change and sometimes you may need to postpone an arranged meeting. We do ask that you give us as much notice as possible if you need to make any changes. Although it is tempting to put off anything to do with your own development in order to do something else, before doing anything, remember why you started the coaching program and focus on your own development goals! We also ask that you complete any actions you have agreed to. If you find that you are consistently not achieving what you intended to, have a rethink about how realistic your short-term goals are and amend them accordingly!

Frequently asked questions

We’ve done lots of courses before, how will this be different?

It’s great that you and your staff already have an understanding of the subject. People always learn better if they can relate the learning to their workplace.

We take the time to find out what you really need and wherever possible build in references to your own policies and procedures, the documents you use and the expectations you have in the way that your staff respond and behave.

There’s a mixture of staff who have been working with us for a long time and some new staff, how will everyone benefit from the training?

Everyone has something of value to add to learning sessions. We can ensure that your new staff learn from those who have been with you longer and can capitalise on their experiences in working with you. We can also use the experience that newer staff have gained working elsewhere. Newer employees can bring a fresh perspective onto working practices and we can use these ideas to develop everyone’s skills and knowledge.

We are a small company and not everyone can attend the training at the same time. How can we benefit from your courses?

We work hard to minimise disruption to the workplace and can provide learning sessions at times to suit you. Some businesses find that short lunchtime sessions work well, others prefer an early start or a late finish, with sessions taking place before or after work. This might work for you and your staff. Alternatively, why not contact other businesses in your area and see if you can organise several group training sessions, with participants coming from each business. That way you can share the costs and everyone gets a chance to attend.

How will my staff get recognition for attending the training?

It is important that everyone records the learning in their CPD records and we can remind people to do this. We can also give ‘certificates of attendance’, which list the learning outcomes and can incorporate your logo if you wish.

Is any background reading needed before attending the training?

If your staff have different levels of awareness, it can be useful for everyone to complete some background reading before they attend. However, we know that this is not always possible and our experienced trainers can ensure that everyone’s knowledge is increased during the learning activities, whatever their prior knowledge level.

We have used Mary numerous times for various training needs. She is an excellent communicator and facilitator bringing a right blend of necessary information with practical experience. Through her work with Ofsted she also brings a helpful insight from an inspector’s viewpoint. She gears the training content to our needs and all levels within the Practice. Her professional yet relaxed style helps to put the message across in a friendly, but effective way. We will undoubtedly continue to use Mary’s services and would highly recommend her.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Corporate Growth Consultancy. Mary is very insightful and comes with a vast amount of experience covering a wide range of sectors. Once I'd completed my course I was extremely motivated with a clear vision on areas for improvement to help achieve my goals.
