Why CrisisID® and private coaching work so well together

Why CrisisID® and private coaching work so well together

As you may have read in an earlier blog post, our CrisisID® program helps participants learn to prevail and prosper in difficult times.

This could be anything from a divorce, to financial problems, ongoing difficulties with a colleague or a crisis in confidence.

A huge part of our program involves learning specific strategies to understand yourself – and others – during these times. We also help you to develop your emotional intelligence so you can navigate such challenges more easily in the future.

“This program serves the need of focusing middle and senior leaders on the importance of critical self-reflection and emotional intelligence as characteristics of good decision making”
– CrisisID® participant

The CrisisID® program, which launched last year, has been hugely empowering in its own right. However many participants – buoyed by their new insights – have chosen to continue their development through our private coaching sessions.

These sessions are tailor-made to your personal situation and you can choose the quantity of sessions to suit you. We find that the most popular option is the six-month package, made-up of six one-hour sessions (held via Zoom).

Why these programs complement each other

Many people register for CrisisID® during a difficult time, and learn to change the way they react and think about the situation they’re facing.

So our one-on-one coaching, which helps participants become ‘unstuck’, examine and reshape their thinking and feel less alone in their uncertainty and difficulties, is a perfect complement to the program.

By completing CrisisID®, followed by more intensive private coaching, you’ll build on what you’ve already learnt, and go deeper within your own thinking.

Part of creating change is developing different habits, and as we all know, this can take time. Our private coaching gives you that space, along with extra resources and the accountability to continue moving towards your goals, even as fresh challenges pop up.

Helping you overcome tough situations

The one-on-one coaching also helps you answers questions such as:

How do I increase my influence and my impact?
How do I work more positively and productively with a difficult colleague?
How do I manage work/life integration?
How can I cope with a high-pressure situation or project?

Less stress, and more confidence

One of our participants last year began with six months of private coaching, and was so inspired that she continued on to the CrisisID® program.

She said the one-on-one coaching provided the opportunity to put herself underneath the microscope and examine her ‘default’ position when faced with stress.

“One private hour of coaching can change how you think when faced with stressful situations, and it is the best professional development I have ever spent”

For her, the most valuable part of the program was being presented with her vulnerabilities in a positive light, and then being challenged to own – and master – that situation.

She also said the coaching left her better equipped to shape the positive thinking of her team, leading to a more positive working environment for everyone.

“Being able to apply everything personally, and then transfer it to your professional setting is incredibly powerful knowledge indeed”

She also learnt to feel more confident in making tough decisions, and also found an uptick in energy because her stress levels were reduced.

We’d call that a win.
